The 2017 Elantra design is one of its great new features, both inside and out. The contoured body is engaging and sleek, with aerodynamic curves that will grab attention on the highway. Plus, with distinct lighting, a wide hexagonal grille, and a range of bright color tones to choose from, the new Elantra doesn’t get any better.

The interior design is just as impressive as the exterior. “The Elantra’s cabin wholly embraces the art of simplicity without feeling overly boring or stale,” said the auto writers at KBB.com. “The steering wheel offers plenty of flexibility for a variety of body types, while the driver’s seat won us over with its 8-way power adjustment, ample thigh support and, unlike the Civic or Cruze, memory settings and 2-way lumbar support.”

The Hyundai Elantra is a compact model, but you wouldn’t guess from the interior. The passenger cabin is surprisingly roomy, with 14.4 cubic feet of cargo room—among the largest in its segment—as well as seating for five. You won’t want to leave the driver’s seat of this new model. Aside from the design, discover what else makes the Elantra so enjoyable by test driving this model for yourself.

The Good Design Awards are an annual program in which the Chicago Atheneum: Museum of Architecture and Design, in addition to the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, recognize excellence in design in a variety of areas. For the 2015 ceremony, the panel of judges awarded Hyundai Motors with five Good Design Awards, marking the company’s consistent quality of design.

The four vehicles recognized by the awards include the upcoming Hyundai Ioniq hybrid and electric vehicle, the Tucson SUV, all-new Elantra compact car, and the Santa Cruz concept debuted at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The fifth award earned by Hyundai was in recognition of the company’s “Sculpture in Motion” art installation.

Byung-Seob Lee, Hyundai Motors’ senior vice president and head of the Hyundai Design Center, commented, “Being recognised as five-time winners in the Good Design Awards strengthens Hyundai Motor’s position as an automotive design leader.”

Thousands of international brands, manufacturers, and firms were evaluated by the awards program’s jury of architects, cultural leaders, designers, and experts across several different markets and industries. However, Hyundai Motors stood out from the competition by securing five Good Design Awards, attesting to the company’s skillful development and application of unique design philosophies.
