With almost 3 million vehicles sold in the United States since its inception, the Hyundai Elantra is entering its sixth generation with the 2018 model year this fall. When the new Elantra arrives at Chapman Hyundai, buyers can expect a brand new trim package that delivers even more standard features than previously available. With plenty of power and efficiency and a whole new suite of amenities, expect the Hyundai Elantra to make a sizable dent in the midsize sedan market.

Driver Assistance Features Part of Package

The new SEL trim package offers a bevy of new features, including sensor and camera-driven driver assistance safety technology. Buyers who choose the SEL trim will get blind spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert and lane change assist. These features work as an extra set of eyes, helping drivers avoid collisions when vehicles or other obstacles (such as pedestrians) are in places the naked eye cannot see. Other new standard features on the Hyundai Elantra include a rearview camera, the ability to use limited apps in your smartphone to stream music, podcasts, books and utilize handsfree communication, four-wheel disc brakes, heated mirrors, automatic headlights and a 3.5-inch cluster display to clearly show important vehicle information.

New Elantra Comes in Six Different Trims

Along with the SEL, the Hyunda Elantra is offered in the SE, Value, Eco, Limited and Sport trim packages. The Eco is designed for people who want the maximum fuel efficiency, offering near-hybrid numbers of 35 mpg combined driving at a fraction of the cost of electrified vehicles. The Limited offers more sophistication, with leather seats and trim, while the Sport model is the option for people who want the most dynamic driving experience. Along with a 1.6L turbocharged engine that delivers a peppy 201 horsepower, the Elantra Sport has cool available features like headlights that bend around corners, approach lights for the door handles, LED running lamps and taillights and navigation.

Don’t Forget Industry’s Best Warranty

The Hyundai Elantra includes the best warranty in the automotive industry, offering 5 years and 60,000 miles of bumper to bumper coverage as well as 5 years and unlimited miles of roadside assistance. The powertrain on all Hyundais is covered for 10 years and 10,000 miles, while the emission system is warranted for 8 years and 80,000 miles. The phenomenal warranty is proof that Hyundai stands behind all its vehicles longer than any other automaker.

Continued strong sales of the Hyundai Tucson compact SUV bode well for the automaker as it heads into the strong summer buying season. “In May, we continued our positive retail sales momentum on the core products in our lineup –Sonata, Elantra, Tucson and Santa Fe–which all saw increases compared to last year,” according to Hyundai VP of national sales, Derrick Hatami. The Tucson had the strongest showing of all, with sales up 44 percent from the previous year. The 10,600 vehicles sold was a record month for the Tucson. Come see why the new Tucson is so popular by taking a test drive at Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road.

Tucson Received Major Upgrades for 2017

One of the reasons for the increase in sales is Hyundai’s commitment to improving the Tucson, adding premium audio and connectivity along with interior detail and the use of upgraded materials. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are both available on the Limited trim package, while improved rear air conditioning vents make sitting in the back much more comfortable on the Eco and Sport models. Upgraded door panels and stain-resistant fabric also add to the desirability of the new Tucson.

Hyundai Offers New Powertrains

The 2017 Hyundai Tucson comes with a choice of powertrains that deliver both performance and efficiency. Choose a base model and you’ll get the 2.0L fuel-injected Nu engine that delivers 164 horsepower. When teamed up with a six-speed SHIFTRONIC transmission it delivers 30 mpg on the highway and 26 mpg in combined driving. Choose the upgraded Eco, Sport or Limited Tucson and you’ll get a 1.6L turbocharged engine that delivers 175 horses and almost 200 pound-feet of torque. The Eco model gets an outstanding 32 mpg on the highway, while the Sport and Limited trim packages are rated at 30 mpg on the open road.

Special Attention to Sound Deadening

The Hyundai engineers sharpened their pencils and put a lot of thought to eliminating road noise in the 2017 Tucson. Some of the sound deadening measures include larger engine mounts to reduce vibrations, a bushing mount design on the rear cross members, increased sound insulation on inner fenders, instrument panel, transmission tunnel and the underbody and increased usage of structural adhesive to serve as a buffer against road noise.

Attractive Design Turns Heads

The 2017 Hyundai Tucson has an attractive elongated design that is not only sporty, but allows for more interior room. The sporty design is accentuated by sculpted sides and forward sloping wheel arches. See the beauty and experience the joy of driving a new Tucson when you visit Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road.
