It comes paired to the new seven-speed EcoShift dual-clutch transmission. The 2017 Hyundai Elantra Eco shares the same bold and sleek aerodynamic design as the rest of the lineup, but features a special “Eco” badge and unique 15-inch alloy wheels. It also features the segment-exclusive hands-free Smart Trunk, a 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen system with a rearview camera, and smartphone app integration and voice-controls.
Mike Evanoff, manager, product planning, HMA, had this to say about the new Hyundai model:
Now entering its sixth-generation, the Elantra model has always been synonymous with value in the highly competitive compact car segment. With the new Elantra we not only focused key development objectives on performance, ride quality and efficiency, but committed ourselves to delivering a compelling value proposition at all price points. The Eco is an all-new trim for Elantra that offers consumers enhanced fuel efficiency with a 1.4-liter turbocharged and direct injected powertrain combined with standard high-demand features such as Blind Spot Detection and our 7-inch display audio system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support.
