The #2017ElantraSport is Hyundai’s handsome new sporty 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 rating of 40 mpg.
The Elantra has a sophisticated sporty design outside and inside. The regular Elantra’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine has been replaced with Hyundai’s turbocharged, direct-injected 1.6-liter four-cylinder, producing more than 200 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque. The fuel-economy-oriented Eco also has a turbocharged engine with a 128-hp 1.4-liter turbo four. Unlike several other efficiency packages that only rely on ultra-low-rolling-resistance tires and small aerodynamic tweaks to achieve a high miles per gallon rating, Hyundai used the same strategy as the Sonata Eco mid-size sedan and has given the Elantra Eco a complete powertrain transplant. The Eco also replaces the Elantra’s conventional torque-converter six-speed automatic for a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic that provides quicker shifting and improved efficiency.
Hyundai is doing its part to Save the Manuals. The Sport and Eco will 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, but its rear end has been overhauled and will now have a multilink independent suspension. Replacing the non-Sport Elantra’s twist-beam axle, the new suspension design should offer more controlled dynamics and will add refinement to the Elantra’s ride while enhancing individual wheel control over bumps.
