The base 2016 Hyundai Elantra SE with a six-speed manual transmission starts at $18,075, including an $825 destination charge. The base price is unchanged from the 2015 Elantra sedan.
The new 2016 Hyundai Elantra Value Edition starts at $20,525, including shipping. Hyundai Motor America said the new Value Edition "bundles customer-favorite features at an attractive $1,000 in value savings."
Features include unique 16-inch alloy wheels, a sunroof, a leather steering wheel and shift knob, and heated front seats.
The midlevel 2016 Hyundai Elantra Sport is now priced at $21,075. Although that represents a $1,350 price cut from last year's model, the Sport no longer comes standard with leather seats and a sunroof.
The top-of-the-line 2016 Hyundai Elantra Limited starts at $22,525. Pricing on this model is unchanged from the 2015 model year.
The Elantra Limited now comes standard with a proximity key with push-button start and dual-zone automatic climate control. The new standard features result in a $600 savings, according to Hyundai.
All prices include shipping.
Two engine choices are offered on the 2016 Elantra. They are a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine on the SE, Value Edition and Limited trims, and a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine on the Elantra Sport. The engines are linked to a six-speed manual transmission or six-speed automatic transmission.
Edmunds says: The 2016 Hyundai Elantra gets some tantalizing tweaks that should appeal to value-minded shoppers in the run-up to what is expected to be a major redesign for the 2017 model year.
