The #2017ElantraSport is Hyundai’s sporty new affordable compact that will compete with Volkswagen’s GTI, Honda’s soon to be released next-gen Civic Si and Ford’s Focus ST. The sporty Elantra Sport Eco is expected to get a fuel economy rating of 40 mpg.
The Elantra features a sophisticated sporty design outside and inside. For more power, Hyundai’s turbocharged, direct-injected 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine replaces the regular Elantra’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The new engine produces more than 200 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque. The fuel-efficient Eco also has a turbocharged engine with a 128-hp 1.4-liter turbo. Unlike other efficiency packages that rely solely on ultra-low-rolling-resistance tires and small aerodynamic tweaks to achieve a high fuel economy rating, Hyundai has given the Elantra Eco a complete powertrain transplant. The Eco also has a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic that provides quicker shifting and improved efficiency, replacing the Elantra’s conventional torque-converter six-speed automatic transmission.
Hyundai is doing its part to save manual transmissions! The Sport and Eco both offer a six-speed manual transmission in addition to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic with paddle shifters. The Sport comes with front-wheel drive with a rear end multilink independent suspension. Replacing the non-Sport Elantra’s twist-beam axle, the new suspension design should offer more controlled dynamics and provides a smoother ride even over bumps.
