When it comes to technology, it can sometimes be overwhelming with new cars. Some vehicles seem to require a master’s degree in engineering just to set the clock radio, while others can make new technology very user friendly. Hyundai falls into the latter category judging by the results of a recent J.D. Power survey regarding the 2017 Hyundai Elantra. The Elantra rated highest in the overall owner experience with technology out of all vehicles in the compact category. The Hyundai was the top choice across the board in smartphone mirroring, connectivity and entertainment, also getting great results in the fields of driver assistance features and collision avoidance. “How we interact with vehicle technology continues to be a key consideration when buying a car across all vehicle categories,” according to Hyundai’s director of digital planning, Manish Mehrotra. “Our focus on creating a better owner and driver experience is evident in the Elantra, from safety features like Lane Departure Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking to advanced infotainment items like compatibility with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.” See all the new technology on the affordable Elantra in action when you visit Chapman Hyundai.

     Hyundai Motor Company revealed the redesigned Elantra compact sedan and it includes a more mature and streamlined styling along with better fuel economy and a more powerful engine. Called the Avante in Korea, it will officially be unveiled in the US at the LA Auto Show in November.
The 6th generation small car provides better driving dynamics by using more lightweight high-strength steel and overhauling the suspension system.
In a press release the South Korean automaker stated that their engineers dampened noise and vibration by redesigning the windscreen wipers, insulating rear-wheels and by adding thicker door glass.
In the U.S. market, the Elantra is Hyundai’s bestselling nameplate and through August sales were up 10% to 173,238 units. Hyundai wants to be seen as providing quality and handling, which is why they have refined the ride.
Hyundai stated that it isn’t only great design that improved the all-new Hyundai Elantra over its predecessors. Also upgraded were the Elantra’s fuel efficiency, power output, safety features, comfort and extensive use of technology. Hyundai Motor Group’s r&d unit Vice Chairman Yang Woong-Chul unveiled the Elantra’s new design at a ceremony just outside of Seoul at the company’s Namyang technical center.
The next generation of Hyundais will have many high-tech improvements such as a seat that remembers the drivers favorite seating position, automatic dimming of high-beam lights, autonomous emergency braking and blind spot detection. Other upgrades will include a hands-free auto-opening trunk and rear cross-traffic alert.
On the outside the look was more refined which was accented by slim headlamps that are sporty and clean lines. A large hexagonal grille was also introduced. Due to a 32% boost in high-strength steel use, the car is a bit longer and wider than its predecessors.
Under the hood the Elantra is powered by either a 1.6-liter direct-inject has engine or by a 2.0-liter Atkinson cycle engine. Hyundai is also producing a 1.6-liter diesel engine. Engines might be different in some markets.
The transmission choices are a 6-speed automatic, a 6-speed stick or a 7-speed dual clutch. The DCT will only be available on the diesel models.
It is not clear when it will be available in other markets at this time. However global sales are expected to reach 700,000 next year, 110,000 of which will be sold in the home market and the other 590,000 being sold overseas.
The U.S version will be made in Montgomery, Ala. and will be available at Chapman Hyundai when it comes to market.

The 2013 Hyundai Elantra coupe is basically the same as the older Elantra sedan models, except with two fewer doors. The front fascia has also been tweaked to allow it to stand out from the sedans. The Hyundai styling and wedge-like profile looks far more stylish and sporty on the coupe as opposed to the sedan. The lower rear diffuser is also black to make it stand out but even the most conservative buyers will think it adds value to the overall design. The sedan and the coupe version of the Elantra have the same wheelbase and height, the only exterior size difference is that the coupe is 0.4 inches longer than the sedan. With such close dimensions the coupe is exceptionally spacious and beats out most of the competition for cargo space.

Under the hood consumers will get a 148-hp, 1.8-liter inline four-cylinder engine that produces 131 lb-ft of torque. An automatic transmission comes standard but there is also the option of a six-speed manual transmission both produce about the same fuel economy of 28 mpg city/ 39 highway. Phoenix Hyundai driver’s are also sure to appreciate the optional features such as the  touch-screen navigation system with a rearview camera, leather-trimmed seats, keyless entry and start, a power sunroof, and dual-zone climate control.

Hyundai has also released the Elantra GT, formerly known as the Elantra Touring, this version of the Elantra is a hatchback. Outside of the name change, the second-generation Elantra GT will have more occupant space as well as more cargo room than all of the five-door competitors in its category. Despite the spacious interior the newer GT is shorter in length and height and rides on a shorter wheelbase, but is slightly wider. The styling allows the GT to fit right in with the rest of the Hyundai line-up and is more attractive than previous models.

The U.S version of the GT differs slightly from the European version and uses the same engine as the Elantra sedan; a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 148 hp and 131 lb-ft of torque. As with the coupe version, the GT comes standard with an automatic transmission but a manual is available as an option and both produce similar fuel efficiency with 28 city mpg and 39 highway. The fuel efficiency for the updated GT is much higher than the previous Elantra Touring’s numbers.

“The new Hyundai GT is sportier than the sedan and is much more enthusiast focused” says David Hupart, Sales Director of Chapman Hyundai, he also adds “The new GT improves upon the Touring’s dynamics and is a great value per dollar”.

In which he may be referring to the added features such as electric power-steering system and driver selectable modes that provide variable assist and build-up characteristics. The GT also comes standard with a six-speaker stereo with iPod and Bluetooth connectivity, power everything, and Hyundai’s Blue Link telematics system. Optional upgrades include leather interior, panoramic sunroof, and navigation.
