City/Hwy Fuel Economy
Horsepower, 1.6L (1,591cc) Turbo GDI in-line 4 cylinder
The Sporty Sedan
Performance is where the 2018 Hyundai Elantra truly shines compared to other vehicles in its class. Its advanced 2.0L Atkinson four-cylinder engine pumps out 147 horsepower and 132 ft.-lb. of torque and makes use of its Multi Point Injection (MPI) technology to achieve a smooth and powerful ride that is also conservative in fuel use. The powerful engine is coupled with either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission based on your preference. The new multi-link rear suspension replaces the less capable torsion bar suspension and allows for much more agile handling. To add to the agility and handling the front/rear spring rates and damper settings have been adjusted to allow for sportier intentions.
Safety Features Abound
Especially important with any vehicle that has a focus on power, the 2018 Hyundai Elantra is equally equipped in the safety department. The car comes with seven standard airbags including front and side impact, side curtain (front and back), and driver’s knee. The SUPERSTRUCTURE® frame is constructed of advanced high strength steel to deliver an ultra-rigid body. The innovative structure has led to a high level of ride comfort and enhanced safety. The 2018 Elantra comes with standard Blind Spot Detection that monitors the cars blind spots and gives both an audible and visual warning when a car ventures into that space. When in reverse, the rear-cross traffic alert helps identify and warn the driver of approaching vehicles that could cause a collision, even if they aren’t visible in the standard rearview camera.
The 2018 Hyundai Elantra has opted for a more aggressive look than its counterparts. A sharp front splitter and a more atheltic low stance makes the car look like it is ready for the track. The car sits on top of 18” two tone wheels and all-together the exterior is classy and stylish. Inside the car, the custom seats and red stitching on the surfaces add a touch of flare. The steering wheel is a flat bottom, -influenced, leather-wrapped wheel with built in audio and cruise controls. The dashboard is incredibly well put together with minimal panel gaps and sturdy knobs giving a feeling of quality that punches above its weight class. The carbon fibre look trim and sports instrument gauge cluster add to the overall aesthetic of sporty luxury.
A Plethora Of Technology
The 2018 Hyundai Elantra comes equipped with a host of technological features. Some of the ease-of-use features includes proximity keyless entry which unlocks the car once the key fob is near the vehicle. This also includes proximity keyless push-button ignition. The Elantra comes standard with rearview camera and rear-traffic warning which alerts the driver when there is an obstruction behind the car while backing up. The available Infinity® 315-watt premium audio system comes with 8 speakers with an included external amplifier that adds power and presence to any audio component. To allow drivers to customize their entertainment there are two USB ports and Bluetooth® sync ability for smartphones. On the interior there is a 7-inch colour infotainment screen which makes controlling audio and using the optional navigation a breeze.
