2017 Elantra Eco

New Engine Mates With Dual Shift Transmission

A brand new 1.4L Kappa GDI turbo 4-cylinder engine works with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission to provide 128 horsepower and a hybrid-worthy 40 mpg on the highway in the Hyundai Elantra Eco trim package. The car also gets 32 mpg in the city for a combined rating of 35 mpg. “Now entering its sixth generation, the Elantra model has always been synonymous with value in the highly competitive compact car segment,” according to Hyundai project planning manager Mike Evanoff. “With the new Elantra we not only focused key development objectives on performance, ride quality and efficiency, but committed ourselves to delivering a compelling value proposition at all price points. The Eco is an all-new trim for Elantar that offers consumers enhanced fuel efficiency.” The new Eco Trim will be coming to Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road sometime early this summer.

Eco Look Set Apart With Badging

Although it has the same basic design as other Elantra models, the Eco Trim package is identifiable by unique “Eco” badging and special 15-inch wheels. LED running lights and door handle illumination also provide a unique look. Tired of fumbling for keys with your hands full of groceries? Just approach the Hyundai Elantra Eco with your key fob in your pocket and the trunk lid will automatically pop open after three beeps. The interior of the Eco model is laid out both thoughtfully and ergonomically, putting all controls within a finger’s reach of the driver. Enjoy an infotainment system with a 7.0-inch touchscreen and rearview camera that utilizes both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to synch up with your smartphone. Premium features like heated seats, push button start and dual automatic climate control are also available.

Efficient Elantra Packed With Safety Features

Although gas mileage is important, it’s not as critical as delivering everyone to the appointed destination in one piece. A seven airbag system protects your occupants in the event of a crash, but a rigid chassis and host of driver assistance features are also critical to the expected top safety rating of this popular model. The Hyundai Elantra Eco Trim model offers blind spot detection, rear cross-traffic awareness and lane assist, utilizing sensors to help you see and avoid potential obstacles. Check in with the pros at Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road to see when this latest model is due to arrive on the showroom floor.

Great Gas Mileage Combines With Outstanding Horsepower

Test drive the new Hyundai Azera at Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road and you’ll be stepping into a beautifully designed full size sedan that delivers both on the road and at the pumps. A 3.3L V6 engine is tuned to deliver 293 horsepower while still earning 29 mpg out on the highway. Add in the best-in-class interior room, a quiet cabin and plenty of creature comforts to create a car you’ll be proud to show off to friends and neighbors. A smooth-shifting 6-speed transmission runs seamlessly through the gears while providing plenty of power on the open road.

Fluidic Sculpture Design Philosophy Wins Admirers

Hyundai is a firm believer in a fluidic sculpture design philosophy that creates a feeling of movement even when a car is standing still. The new Hyundai Azera adheres soundly to that principle, with a sculpted body that is not only beautiful, but also sleek and energetic. LED accent lights surround available Xenon headlights to not only illuminate the road at night, but also announce your presence to other drivers who might not be paying close attention. LED taillights provide an energy-conscious solution to keep the Azera as efficient as possible while still delivering plenty of style. If letting the outside in appeals to you, opt for the panoramic tilt and slide sunroof that delivers stunning views. The sunroof not only puts you close to the environment, but also creates a more serene driving experience. Chrome tipped dual exhausts add a solid exclamation mark to the design while also contributing to the overall vehicle efficiency.

Spacious Interior Offers Room to Stretch

If you’ve ever folded yourself into a back seat for a long drive, you know how nice it is to be able to stretch your legs. The Hyundai Azera has the most room in its class, meaning five adults can pile in for a drive from Phoenix to Las Vegas and still be friends once they arrive. Leather seating, an 8-inch touchscreen with navigation and options like heated seats, 12-way driver power seat and integrated seat memory system all add to the comfort level. The infotainment system keeps you safely connected to the outside with Bluetooth and smartphone streaming. A 550 watt Infinity Logic stereo delivers concert quality sound in the cozy confines of the cabin. Power rear sunshades are a nice option to have in the Arizona summer, as are the standard second row air vents.

Premium Performance at an Affordable Price

Although it’s a premium vehicle, the Azera starts in the mid $30,000 range, thousands less than competitors. Hyundai doesn’t skip on performance, providing a technologically advanced engine that utilizes gasoline direct injection and dual continuously variable valve timing. Power is nice, but it doesn’t mean much if you find yourself losing control. When you test drive the Azera at Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road, pay particular attention to the handling. Selective damping shock absorbers keep you in charge as you put the vehicle through its paces around tight corners.
