Hyundai Elantra 2.0

Hyundai’s new Elantra 2.0 sedan is a beautifully designed small car.  The design team have ticked all the right boxes, and the well-proportioned new Elantra is one of the notably stylish small sedans currently on the market.  The front end of every new Elantra features a wind tunnel-tested design that uses air curtains to manage airflow.  The sleek lines and slender curves will keep the 2016/2017 Elantra timeless in years to come.  Let’s climb aboard for a closer look.

Beauty isn’t just skin deep, and you’ll see why the award winning Elantra sedan continues to impress when you sit yourself down inside the car’s interior.  The choice of materials are smart and sophisticated, and even the base model with a cloth interior remains well-dressed and comfortable.  A range of colours and combinations for the Hyundai Elantra interior ensure that the car always impresses to suit individual tastes and preferences.  The lighter-toned seats against a darker trim for the dash and other darker coloured interior features looks amazing and is the type of design one would expect to see in an Audi or Citroen equivalent.  The Elite model boasts a premium leather interior for those who require the joys of lavish leather.

You can get yourself comfortable in either the front and rear of the Elantra – the cabin is roomy and practical.  Controls, such as audio and cruise control, are ergonomically positioned on the steering wheel, so you can adjust various functions while keeping your hands firmly on the wheel.  Dual-zone climate control allows front and rear occupants to adjust the temperature for the two separate zones.  Rear air vents keep the air flow fresh and pollen filtered.

Impressively equipped, the new Hyundai Elantra 2.0-litre sedan offers great features.  In the centre of the dash you’ll be able to use the 7-inch touch screen to access numerous on-board information and entertainment systems.  AppleCarPlay is standard, and you are able to do all the iPhone stuff you’re used to doing via the touch screen.  So, you can get directions, make calls, and play music all in a way that lets you stay focused on the road thanks to the Siri communications system.  A rear parking system helps to make the car parking moments a little easier, while Elite models boast an electrochromic rear-vision mirror.  When a car with bright lights is following behind, the mirror automatically dims.

I don’t know why it is, but I really like the automatic boot opening function; I guess it’s the numerous times I have been caught out with a heavy armful of groceries, where I always seem to have to double handle them into the boot while I find the car keys!  This is a great feature that’s available on the Hyundai Elantra Premium model.

What powers the new Hyundai Elantra Active and Elite models is a fresh new 2.0-litre engine with a maximum of 112 kW of power at 6200 rpm and a peak of 192 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm.  A choice of a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearbox is available for the buyer, and the choice will be down to the hassle free motoring of the auto box and the slick shifting manual drive.  Fuel consumption should be better than 8 litres/100 km on a regular basis.  Of course, the more you ask of the engine, the higher the fuel consumption – which is the same for any car regardless of make and model.

Weighing in at around 1300 kg, the new Hyundai Elantra 2.0 is easy to drive and powerful enough to impress.  Safety features include a comprehensive list of items that include seat belt pretensioners, airbags side and front, ECS, EBD, ABS, VSM and HAC.  Hyundai have also equipped the Elantra with an impressive Automatic Emergency Braking feature with a Pedestrian Detection system.  This feature will automatically act to help drivers stop better than what they’re capable of by themselves.  When you don’t happen to see something you’re about to collide with, the system takes action to stop if you’re too late in responding.

This is a solid small car that feels well sorted out on the road.  You can hustle the Elantra along with confidence, and the car pulls up really well – a fun car to drive, considering that it will sell to a wide range of the public.  The ride is noticeably quieter than the outgoing model due to added sound absorbing material above the rear wheel wells and thicker glass for the front windows.

A strong warranty, elegant looks and high levels of equipment will continue to make the Elantra a popular small car choice.
