The Hyundai Elantra is a compact car produced by the South Korean manufacturer Hyundai since 1990. The 2017 Hyundai Elantra is now its sixth generation.

Exterior and interior changes and updates

The previous Elantra was one of the cars that announced a new generation of the stylish Hyundai. The new vehicle will be more attractive than the 2016 model. With about an inch more in overall length and width, the new 2017 Hyundai Elantra will improve its already generous interior space. When we look at the vehicle we will notice its sophisticated and elegant appearance. The front grille will have a strict look that makes this car looks serious. Boomerang-shaped LED running lights will make the front part of the car even more aggressive and powerful. The cabin of the 2017 Hyundai Elantra will be made of the highest quality materials and improved with the latest technology features. These features will include a separate 4.2-inch LCD display on some models for ancillary functions like audio and navigation. Secondary functions such as climate control and audio are controlled with knobs and keys.  The cockpit of the 2017 Hyundai Elantra will wear a mix of soft-touch plastics and metallic finishes just as in the Sonata, offset by a fair amount of hard black plastic. The seats will be leather-wrapped and those will further increase the elegance of this beautiful vehicle.
