Driving a car should be a fun, exciting experience. If you’re sick of the boring, bland cars many automakers have been producing, you’ve come to the right place. The 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport was designed specifically for people like you - those who want to have some fun when they’re behind the wheel. The Elantra Sport is an affordable and capable compact sport sedan that will put a smile on anyone’s face.
There are a few cars available that claim to be fun and exciting to drive. Sadly, they either don’t live up to the promises, or they’re simply too expensive. The 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport, however, checks all the right boxes - it’s affordable, looks great, is fun to drive, and has a spacious and comfortable interior.
With a starting price of $24,999, the 2017 Elantra Sport is thousands of dollars less than its main competitors, while still delivering an exceptional driving experience. You could pay $33,740 for the cheapest performance MINI or almost $35,000 for a Jetta GLI, but why would you? Even the fun, yet unpractical Ford Fiesta ST has a higher starting price than the Elantra.
The 2017 Hyundai Elantra is a fun, exciting car, for the right price.
Hyundai didn’t skimp when designing the 2017 Elantra Sport. Even though it’s affordable, it still delivers impressive performance. Compared to the 147 hp a base Elantra puts out, the Elantra Sport serves up 201 hp and 95 lb.-ft. of torque - a 48 per cent increase over the base Elantra. Along with improved engine comes a suspension system worthy of the “sport” badge. The 2017 Elantra Sport is an absolute blast to drive.
“In another excellent piece of inclusion, the Sport gains a multi-link, fully independent rear suspension system … the real reason for its inclusion is the superior wheel control that independently controlling suspension movement requires. Factor in larger disc brakes, firmer suspension, and some seriously sporty and low-profile tires, and the Sport is noticeably more sprightly than base Elantras.” - Driving.ca
“And it may have just beaten the Ford Fiesta ST as the most performance you can get for your dollar. No joke.” - Jalopnik
The 2017 Hyundai Elantra is an absolute bargain in comparison to its competition. Along with great looks and high-end performance, the Elantra Sport comes with a wide range of features that make for an overall driving experience that is arguably the best in its class. From the de rigueur bottomed steering wheel, to the dual-zone air conditioning, to the upgraded Infinity audio system, the Elantra Sport is the fun, feature rich car that you want to drive every day.
“The Elantra Sport is also well equipped. Even basic functions are well-sorted; the included apps are useful, the seat heaters warm up quickly and even something as basic as the little wiper function indicator [is] much appreciated. Indeed, from a purely technical, comparative, and equipment point of view, it’s hard to point out a single dramatic flaw in the Sport’s repertoire.” - Driving.ca
