Earlier this month, Hyundai Motor America (HMA) unveiled the all-new 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport to the automotive press. The 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport promises to be the most powerful Hyundai Elantra model to date, and benefits from powertrain, chassis, and styling upgrades over current Hyundai Elantra models. Here at your Hyundai dealers serving Poway, our team is excited to discover more about what this sleek and performance-driven sedan has to offer!
The four-door 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport will come powered by a 1.6-liter Turbo GDI four-cylinder engine that generates more than 200 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque, and comes paired to either a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with paddle shifters. It is exclusively equipped with an independent multi-link rear suspension designed to improve on-road dynamics and the feel of the vehicle behind the wheel. In addition to the upgraded performance features and specs, this model will differ from the rest of the Hyundai Elantra lineup with unique exterior bodywork and model-specific interior features and materials. Mike Evanoff, HMA Manager of Product Planning, had this to say about the new edition to the Hyundai lineup:
Elantra Sport demonstrates our commitment to providing drivers with compelling vehicle choices that align with their interests. This is a vehicle that reflects our own passion for cars and driving, expressing it with sharp looks, proven in-car technology, upgraded power, and fun, sporty handling.
The sporty and dynamic sedan is expected to hit dealership lots in Fall 2016, but in the meantime, head on down to Kearny Mesa Hyundai to speak to a member of our team and check the rest of our new Hyundai models and take a test drive today!
