2018 Hyundai Elantra Reviewed from All Angles in Peoria, AZ

Larry H. Miller Hyundai Peoria Reviews the New Hyundai Elantra from Every Angle Possible

Popularity for the compact car segment across the country can be felt on nearly any road and around any turn, as compact models that offer interior space, comfort and great fuel economy are becoming premier choices for families alike and fans of nimble daily drivers. And the Hyundai Elantra certainly fits into the upper echelon of the popularity bracket in this segment, as this model is known for refinement that covers performance, exterior design and interior comfort. Stocked with useful features, spaced thoughtfully to give you room to adjust, and great for smooth riding on every type of commute, there are plenty of reasons to explore for why the Hyundai Elantra matches precisely what you're looking for.

"Not just new. Better." That is the moniker of Hyundai, and a concept that applies brilliantly to the new Hyundai Elantra. Now in its sixth generation, the new Elantra features an array of updates that are important to touch upon. With a much more dynamic, stand-out look- influenced by a new chassis design, refreshed headlights and a rear lip change- the sport feel of the Elantra is immediately noticeable. Sticking to a modern formula that still surpasses what the competition in the small-sedan segment can offer, the Elantra isn't required to make sweeping changes just to prove impactful on the open road.

The Hyundai Elantra is Compact yet Capable: Time to Pop Open the Hood and Take a Look at Performance

Don't let the compact nature of the Hyundai Elantra fool you. This sedan has three different powertrain options for you to think about, with each engine choice bringing something different yet dynamic to the table. The engine options break down like this:

  • 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (Elantra SE, Value and Limited Trim Levels-147 horsepower)
  • Turbocharged 1.4-liter GDI four-cylinder engine (Elantra Eco-EPA estimated maximum 40 miles per gallon highway, 128 horsepower)
  • Turbocharged 1.6-liter GDI four-cylinder engine (Elantra Sport-201 horsepower)

Depending upon what you prefer, you can match your lifestyle specifically to an engine option of the new Elantra. The first two options are great for those that prefer a smooth ride and impressive fuel economy, while the Elantra Sport offers more of the peppy performance that speed enthusiasts tend to value highly.

Features to Make your Rides to and From Work Fun in the New Hyundai Elantra

When you consider the fact that the Hyundai Elantra sits firmly on the US top ten best-selling cars list, you realize that the features inside of this compact sedan must turn a lot of heads. And this is certainly the case with this new Hyundai model, which delivers value with the amenities it offers across every trim level. Access to features such as a seven-inch touchscreen that syncs with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with heated front seats and blind-spot monitoring, are surprises for respective lower trim levels such as the Value and Eco in the Elantra. A hands-free smart trunk for easy grocery stocking, along with leather seats for more luxury inside, are just a few examples of the many options you have in the upper trims within the model lineup.

A Safety Design that Compares Favorably to the Competition in this New Hyundai Model

Top-shelf IIHS safety crash ratings are always noteworthy, as the testing process of this organization is meticulous. And the Elantra certainly put on a show in this regard, landing a "superior" rating for front crash prevention and highest available "good ratings" for crash ratings in small overlap front, side, moderate overlap front, head restraints, seats and roof strength respectively. With optional equipment such as bending lights for adaptive visibility, along with an array of other driver-assist technology, you can expect reassurance to be common with every driving scenario you find yourself in.

Warranty Coverage that Puts the Icing on the Hyundai Elantra Cake

Hyundai is famous for the warranty coverage that you can enjoy, and the Elantra is no different. With five-years and 60,000 miles limited coverage, along with seven years and unlimited travel miles of anti-perforation coverage, you can keep a sound peace of mind on daily commutes and cross-country trips. You will feel confident about your coverage that extends to underneath the hood as well, with segment-leading 10-years, 100,000 miles powertrain limited warranty coverage.
