As an all-new model, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra marks an important turning point for the brand. This compact car has become a beloved mode of transportation for many. It should win over even more drivers and passengers, thanks to a balanced mixture of fun and practicality. Experience it for yourself at Mississauga Hyundai.

Cutting-Edge Efficiency

To boost fuel efficiency, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra features an all-new 2.0-litre Nu MPI Atkinson four-cylinder engine. By combining the Atkinson cycle with multi-port injection, you burn less fuel to go place. At the same time, the engine produces a solid 147 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque, so you feel in control at all times.

Hyundai offers two choices for a transmission. One is a six-speed manual, which lets you determine with precision how the car behaves. The six-speed automatic increases convenience, plus conserves even more fuel through advanced technology.

Your ability to customize how the Hyundai Elantra performs increases with the Drive Mode Select feature. By choosing Eco, Normal, or Sport, you change steering and other performance calibrations. It’s as simple as touching a button.

Modern Safety

With a complete redesign comes many groundbreaking safety technologies for the Hyundai Elantra. These constantly help you watch out for potential dangers, so you take fewer risks on the road.

Adding autonomous emergency braking helps with preventing forward crashes. When a collision is imminent, visual and audio warnings get the driver’s attention. If for whatever reason a driver doesn’t see a car or other obstacle ahead, the system applies the brakes to stop the Hyundai Elantra. The system can even detect pedestrians as they cross the road, something you might find useful while navigating through busy city streets.

Blind spot detection also helps warn of hidden dangers. Radar sensors allow the system to know when another car is in your blind spots. Audible and visual warnings alert you to the risk. Rear cross-traffic alert uses the same method to warn when another car is coming from either side as you reverse out of a spot.

If those driver assistance technologies don’t prevent an accident, the SuperStructure will protect everyone in the car. The frame features advanced high strength steel for extreme durability. Also, the body uses advanced structural adhesives in key areas.

Advanced Conveniences

Life can be hectic, but the Hyundai Elantra helps simplify things. You can add modern conveniences that help you get more done, eliminate hassles, and increase comfort.

Struggling to see the road ahead at night will be a thing of the past, thanks to the available HID headlights. They provide perfectly white illumination so you can see clearly without straining.

Adaptive comering means the headlights turn with the steering wheel, eliminating surprises around bends in the road.

Sometimes, you walk up to your car with full hands. Opening the trunk becomes a hassle, and usually means you must set down what you’re carrying. If you get the available Smart Trunk, when the vehicle detects you have the smart key and are standing within 3 feet of the rear for more than 3 seconds, the trunk opens automatically.
