The new and redesigned 2016 Hyundai Elantra midsize lineup continues Hyundai’s tradition of engineering high-quality vehicles that pack a whole lot of style, sophistication, performance, and technology into an affordable package.
Sophisticated Inside And Out
From its swept-back projector beam headlights to the gracefully arching rear deck, the beautiful new 2016 Elantra looks like it costs thousands more. The Elantra’ sophisticated silhouette features artfully executed creases and character lines that give it a sense of seamless motion. Hyundai’s “Fluidic Sculpture” design philosophy takes its cues from nature for a harmonious blending of form and function that not only looks terrific but is also lighter and more aerodynamic than ever before.
Step inside the 2016 Elantra’ surprisingly quiet and refined cabin and the first thing you’ll notice is the excellent fit and finish with quality materials used throughout the interior. With more front leg room than a Honda Civic or a Toyota Corolla, the Elantra’s generous dimensions allow both you and your passengers stretch out and be comfortable.
The Elantra’s ergonomic controls are designed with the driver in mind. They are not only intuitive and easy to use, but they also look smart and contemporary. The elegant center console puts controls for heating, ventilation, air conditioning and audio functions within easy reach. You can also access a variety of functions via steering wheel-mounted controls. Twin sport analog gauges are easy to read and the cloth seats are firm and supportive. Large cup holders, plenty of storage compartments and a generous 14.8 cu. ft. trunk, accessible via 60/40 split fold-down rear seats, demonstrate the Elantra’s practical nature.
Technology At Your Fingertips
The Elantra’s high-tech pedigree offers an impressive list of available cutting-edge technology and luxury features on upmarket models that are designed to keep you informed, entertained, and connected. Enjoy the comfort and convenience of available dual-zone climate and automatic temperature control with CleanAir Ionizer. Other available premium options that take the Elantra uptown include leather seating, a 360-watt premium audio system, power lift and tilt sunroof, heated front and rear seats, and Proximity Key with push button start.
Stay on course with the available 7-in. high-resolution color touchscreen display that provides turn-by-turn navigation with real-time traffic, weather reports, and more. You’ll also appreciate the available rear backup camera and wireless Bluetooth® connectivity. Stream your favorite music with Pandora® and SiriusXM® Radio. You can control these and other functions either by the touchscreen or with voice commands.
Blending Spirited Performance With Excellent Fuel Economy
When it comes to combining spirited performance with money saving fuel economy, the new 2016 Elantra shows how things are done. It’s powered by a smooth-running, 145-hp lightweight direct-injection (GDI) engine that generates 130 lb.-ft. of torque. That’s more standard horsepower than either a Toyota Corolla or a Honda Civic. And the Elantra will help you save money at the pump, thanks to a standard six-speed SHIFTRONIC® automatic transmission with Active ECO System that gets up to an EPA-estimated 38 mpg highway and 28 mpg highway.
If you like to put a bit more excitement into your daily drive, you can opt for the available Elantra Sport model. It comes with a 2.0-liter GDI engine that amps up the power with 173 hp and 154 lb.-ft. of torque for brisk acceleration and lively performance. The Elantra Sport also comes outfitted with distinctive 17-inch alloy wheels and a sport-tuned suspension that puts the fun back into your daily commute.
For the ultimate rush, the 2016 Elantra GT Hatchback features the same 173-hp GDI engine mating to either a 6-speed manual transmission or an optional 6-speed automatic with SHIFTRONIC® and Driver Selectable Steering Mode (DSSM). This feature lets you adjust steering and handling characteristics to suit road conditions or your mood.
Safety Matters Most
Safety is always a top priority at Hyundai. That’s why the 2016 Elantra comes with six standard front airbags, plus side-curtain, and side-impact airbags. The Elantra also features Electronic Stability Control, Traction Control System, and Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Vehicle Stability Management System (VSM), driver’s blind-spot mirror, and a rearview backup camera.
Another notable safety feature is Hyundai’s Blue Link® telemetrics technology. You can connect via your smartphone, a web app, or through the in-car system integrated into the rearview mirror. Blue Link lets you find a shortcut, locate a gas station, or contact emergency services with the touch of a button.
