Elantra Sport’s available Android Auto™ and Apple Car Play™ lets you interact with your smartphone’s maps, texts, music and more using voice commands, all while your eyes remain on the road, where they belong.

All of the foregoing is accentuated in the Sport model, which also rolls on 18-inch wheels. It’s the automotive equivalent of saying, “You throw well for a girl. If you think you absolutely must pay less and want to justify the purchase of the Elantra Sport over a 3 or a Golf, go right ahead—but know that you will also get less excellence for your money.

2017 Hyundai Elantra

Paired with a new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, it’s expected to be the mileage champ, although so far Hyundai only has an estimate for the combined fuel-economy rating: 35 mpg. It makes 128 horsepower and 156 lb-ft. 4-liter turbo four lives under the hood of the newly added Eco model. A direct-injected 1.
