The 2017 Hyundai Elantra comes in one of two trims, SE and Limited. In keeping with their philosophy of offering top value for the money, the SE comes relatively well equipped for the segment. Standard features include projector beam headlights with daytime running lights, power exterior mirrors, power windows, remote keyless entry, a 6-speaker CD/MP3 player, SiriusXM satellite radio and a 6-way adjustable driver's seat.
Limited trim adds nearly $5000 to the base price, but includes everything needed to transform the Elantra from a compact, to a compact luxury car. It looks the part too, with the Limited trim featuring 17-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, LED taillights, automatic headlights, an intelligent hands free trunk, side mirror mounted turn signals, chrome exterior door handles with LED lighting and a blind spot detection system with rear cross-traffic alert.
Step inside the Limited and drivers are greeted by leather seating surfaces, a 7-inch color touchscreen for the audio system, dual USB ports, a rearview camera, a powered driver's seat, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic temperature control and a 3.5-inch TFT multi-information display.
Several option packages are available on the Limited as well. A tech package features an upgraded 8-inch navigation system, an 8 speaker stereo, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a built in garage door opener and a compass, a sunroof and heated rear seats. The Ultimate Package meanwhile, includes HID headlights that will swivel to look around corners while turning, an automatic emergency braking system, radar controlled smart cruise control, a lane departure warning system, a memory system for the seats and automatic high beams.
