Hyundai has finally uncovered the Sport, just as our Elantra sedan car is the same as the Korean-marketplace Avante, our Elantra Sport is beautiful much the same as the Avante Sport, and that’s mind-blowing information if you’ve been eagerly waiting for a sportier Elantra.
We’re not convinced how many consumers are holding their breath for an Elantra with an insertion of more preservative, but the Sport will slide in just below the baking compact, cars such as Volkswagen’s GTI, Honda’s sociable next-gen Civic Si, and Ford’s Focus ST. The Veloster Turbo is a sport compact Hyundai already accessible to U.S. consumers, but it’s weird-looking, has lopsided doors, and isn’t very good to steer.
The 2017 Elantra Sport is decidedly non-weird-looking—it is actually quite beautiful. overlapping its basal opening shape and lights with other Elantras, the Sport gets heavy shares underneath each bone, an impalpable body case, and bewitching 20-spoke aluminum wheels. In what figures as a design coup, Hyundai eluded the rede to discharge boy-racer campaigners and tasteless bits over the Sport, neglecting an extroverted, concentrations ST–style aesthetic for an impalpable, more autumnal GTI-like air. The message continues inside with red contrast stitching, a flat-bottom steering wheel, and sport rooms.
Hyundai backs up the Sport’s having visuals with what be to be having mechanicals, at least on material. The regular Elantra’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is threw in kindness of Hyundai’s turbocharged, direct-injected 1.6-liter four-cylinder making more than 200 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque. Accurate energy illustrations will be released adjacent to the Sport’s on-sale day later this year, but the version’s exploratory figures are nonetheless 53 horsepower and 58 lb-ft tough than those appointed to the base 2.0-liter engine although they will path those of the same part boxers, all of which use 2.0 liter turbocharged four cylinder.
