COLE BAY – Motorworld is proud to present the all new redesigned 2017 Hyundai Elantra.
One of St. Maarten’s best selling cars has received a dramatic makeover, improving on every aspect of the previous model. As one of Hyundai’s all time best-selling models, the new Elantra enters its sixth-generation building on the momentum and success of its proven award-winning formula and strong value proposition by offering a bold aerodynamic design with sophisticated styling, all new efficient powertrains for enhanced fuel economy, better ride quality and noise insulation, and comprehensive safety with class-above features.
Striking exterior design
The new Elantra projects confidence with sculpted body forms complemented by smoothly contoured lines that reveal the underlying inspiration of Hyundai designers. The new Elantra has grown in size from the previous model. It is now 20mm longer, 25mm wider and 5mm higher.
From the front, the new Elantra is defined by Hyundai’s signature hexagonal grille that projects a distinctive character when combined with its modern lighting signatures, including available HID headlights with Dynamic Bending Lights and integrated LED daytime running lights in the fully loaded trim.
Elantra features a sleek body side character line that accentuates a sweeping side window silhouette and striking side profile that flows to the rear of the vehicle. Available new stylish 17” wheels are available including LED tail lights.
The new Elantra is available in 10 different colors.
Modern interior design
On the inside, Elantra continues to depict a modern driver-oriented design that is optimized for intuitive control, improved interior roominess, high-quality materials and premium technology features. The contemporary interior design integrates premium soft-touch materials in key touch points and high-tech details to create an inviting and comfortable interior environment for all passengers. The cabin is also bigger due to the increased size of the overall dimensions.
Refined and responsive chassis and performance
The 2017 Elantra is not only lighter than the outgoing model, but its rigid chassis is now reinforced with 53 percent advanced high-strength steel compared to 21 percent from the previous model, providing improved stiffness at a lower body weight. This increased utilization results in a 29.5 percent stiffer torsional rigidity and 25.3 percent greater bending strength, which bring improvements in vehicle ride and handling, quietness, durability and driving performance.
Base to mid-range models will be powered by a 1.6L MPi Engine, whilst the fully loaded models will be powered by an all-new 2.0L MPi Engine, offering greater performance than the previous model.
Intelligent technology and features
The 2017 Elantra truly advances ahead of the compact car class with innovative technology that enhances driver confidence and convenience, without the premium price.
All Elantras come standard with CD Player/MP3, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio/iPhone®/USB and auxiliary input jacks. New for 2017, the Elantra features two advanced infotainment systems beyond the base audio system that perfectly cater to the digitally connected – an available 5.0-inch display audio touchscreen system with rearview camera, and Hyundai’s next-generation 7.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The latter will be available later in the year. Other available features include rear and front parking sensors, push button engine start, and more.
Motorworld Managing Director Tariq Amjad is confident that this new Elantra will be a great hit with the local population. “This is simply the best Elantra ever built. The Hyundai Elantra has always been a local favorite and I believe that this new design with these great features will be well received by new owners and those who are upgrading from the previous model.”
