Which Elantra does Edmunds recommend?

Though the entry-level Elantra SE doesn't have an abundance of standard equipment, if you add the Popular Equipment package you'll get some very desirable tech upgrades and you'll keep your monthly payments pretty low. That's the Elantra we'd get.

The Popular equipment package adds stuff such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, satellite radio and a rearview camera. And if that's not enough, you can always upgrade to the Value Edition, which includes blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats and dual-zone automatic climate control.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

Fully redesigned for 2017, the Hyundai Elantra gets a fresh new look, three new engines and a slew of impressive tech features. The 2017 Elantra is classier looking on the outside and more refined on the inside than ever before.

For starters, ride quality has been improved, making the Elantra more livable during daily driving. The Elantra's three new engines include a new base 2.0-liter engine, a turbocharged 1.4-liter engine tuned for fuel economy, and a sporty 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder designed to raise pulses. Unfortunately, with a few early tests of the Elantra, we've found acceleration to be behind that of class leaders. Somehow that doesn't feel like such a big letdown, though, thanks to qualities such as a quiet cabin and a long list of tech features. At the top trim levels you can get items such as adaptive cruise control, lane departure intervention and forward collision mitigation. But no matter how you equip it, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra is as good as it's ever been and it's a strong contender in the compact car segment.

2017 Hyundai Elantra configurations

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra is a four-door compact sedan offered in four main trim levels: SE, Eco, Limited and Sport.

As the base trim level, the SE is sparsely equipped, especially if you get it with the standard six-speed manual transmission. It comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (147 horsepower, 132 pound-feet of torque), 15-inch steel wheels, air-conditioning, full power accessories, cloth upholstery, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a 60/40-split folding rear seatback, and a six-speaker sound system with satellite radio and a CD player.

Automatic-transmission SE models also offer a Popular Equipment package that adds a lot of desirable features. It's our recommendation for the one to buy if you're getting into an Elantra. It includes 16-inch alloy wheels, heated side mirrors, automatic headlights, cruise control, a 7-inch touchscreen (but no CD player), a rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, and smartphone integration with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

With the Popular Equipment package added, you can also get the SE with the Tech package. Those extras include LED daytime running lights, keyless ignition and entry, a hands-free trunk opener, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats and dual-zone automatic climate control.

Next up in the Elantra lineup is the SE Value Edition. It's basically an SE with all of the above included as standard. It also has a sunroof.

The most fuel-efficient model in the lineup is appropriately named the Eco. It comes with the same equipment as the Value Edition but with 15-inch alloy wheels and without the sunroof. It also adds a turbocharged 1.4-liter engine (128 hp, 156 lb-ft) paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

To maximize the number of creature comforts in your Elantra, there's the Limited model. It comes with everything found on the Value Edition (including the standard 2.0-liter engine), plus 17-inch alloy wheels, additional chrome body trim, adaptive xenon headlights, LED taillights, leather upholstery, a power-adjustable driver seat (with power lumbar adjustment), Hyundai's Blue Link system and a second (charge-only) USB port.

Limited models have two options packages: the Limited Tech package and the Limited Ultimate package. The Limited Tech package adds a sunroof, heated rear seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a bigger driver information display, an 8-inch touchscreen, voice commands, a navigation system and an eight-speaker Infinity sound system. The Limited Ultimate package (which requires the Limited Tech package) bundles adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning and mitigation, lane departure warning and intervention, automatic high beams and driver-seat memory settings.

For a more powerful and sporty version of the Elantra, there's the aptly named Sport. It is equipped similar to the Limited, but it has a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine (201 hp, 195 lb-ft), a six-speed manual transmission (the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic is optional), 18-inch alloy wheels, sport-tuned suspension and steering, bigger brakes, special front and rear fascias, xenon headlights, and some interior touches such as alloy pedals and a black headliner. The Sport Premium package essentially adds the same equipment as the Limited Tech package.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions, although trim levels share many aspects. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Eco (turbo 1.4L inline-4 | 7-speed automatic | FWD).


Your driving experience with the Elantra will largely depend on which trim level and engine you choose. The seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is a bit clunky, but handling and braking are better than average.


The standard 2.0-liter engine is disappointing, with some of the slowest 0-60 mph times in the class, while the Eco has good midrange power and is a bit faster. Expect the Sport to be significantly quicker.


The SE, Value Edition and Eco come with less sophisticated rear drum brakes, but on the whole the brakes perform with consistency. The pedal feel is good, and stopping power is easy to modulate.


There's not much feel to be had through the steering wheel, but that doesn't take away from its accuracy. The modes (Normal, Eco and Sport) don't differ very much from one another, but Sport makes the Elantra's already strangely heavy steering almost comically difficult.


The Elantra is quiet, with comfortable front seats and an above-average ride quality. The Sport model will likely be a bit rougher around the edges, but overall this is a pretty cushy compact sedan.

Seat comfort

Most trim levels come with cloth upholstery, and even without power adjustment (which is optional), the seats are accommodating and comfortable. The cloth offers enough grip to hold you in place and does not look or feel down-market.

Ride comfort

The base SE and Eco trim levels both come with tall sidewalls on their tires. These tires absorb so many of the commonly encountered road irregularities. When the road is smooth and the speeds are high, however, the Elantra could use some better body control, especially in the rear.

Noise & vibration

The Elantra is largely free of wind noise and vibration, even at elevated highway speeds. The tires, too, are quiet and keep unwanted ride harshness from the cabin.


The Elantra's interior is definitely a top selling point. It's well built, attractive and spacious. In addition, the controls are logically placed, and getting in and out is a breeze.

Ease of use

The Elantra's cabin is well laid out and easy to use. There's not much visual clutter, the buttons are all well marked, and the center screen is easy to read. The gauges are bright and simple as well, so they are easy to read at a glance.

Getting in/getting out

The door openings are sizable, so it's easy to get in and out of the Elantra for both front and rear seat passengers.

Driving position

With six-way-adjustable seating and a long-reaching telescoping steering column, the driving position can be tailored to suit a wide variety of people. It's easy to get comfortable behind the wheel with few adjustments.


The compact Elantra makes good use of space and gives the driver and passengers plenty of room. Two passengers in the rear seat should find enough space and good visibility, but adding a third might cause some discomfort.


The low hood and thin windshield pillars give you good forward visibility, and the side windows are big enough to easily check your blind spot. The slightly high trunk line is a bit tough to see over, but the rearview camera alleviates that problem when parking.


Fit and finish in the Elantra is on par with the class leaders. Material quality is generally good, even though you'll find some hard plastics here and there. Even the base cloth seats do not feel or look cheap, and the various buttons and knobs work smoothly.


A large trunk, plenty of small item storage in the cabin, and decent room in the back for child safety seats make the Elantra very utilitarian. Competitors, however, offer hatchback configurations that offer more space.

Small-item storage

There's no shortage of door storage, cupholders or other compartments in the Elantra. Just below the center console is a concealable compartment to plug in and hide your phone or sunglasses.

Cargo space

Access to the trunk is good, the liftover height is low and the 14.4 cubic feet of storage is near the top of its class. Split-and-folding rear seats give you added flexibility, though you won't be hauling anything too large because of the sedan body style.

Child safety seat accommodation

Good access to the rear seats, along with good rear seat legroom, makes for easy installation.

The new 17 is better that previous model
So I drove a Silver Limited the other day, I have to say it drives and feels way better than either my 12 or 13 limited. It does feel more like a luxury sedan. For people who say the looks are not as good go see it in person, after the test drive I parked it next to my Silver 12 limited and I can say the new one is more attractive. The side view is similar but the new one is slightly more aerodynamic looking. The front end looks a lot better and the rear end looks wider and slightly better. I am not going to jump in right away but I may trade one of our cars for a new one.
Doesn't feel or look anything like old compacts
Steve W,10/09/2016
First thing is the SE trim is amazingly well equipped inside if you add the tech package. This is the best infotainment I have seen in an economy car or really any luxury car that was 2013 or prior. Large prominent full color display with seemless Pandora integration using Bluetooth or Android auto. Full phone navigation on the display is great as well even if potentially buggy depending on the phone. Cloth seats in 2017 models have come a long way even in the last few years. Usually cloth looks cheap and a little out of place. In this case the cloth looks durable and we'll suited to the clean new look of the car. The patterns are taste full and sharp while the added leather center console and wheel on the upgraded SE make the overall interior feel rich for such a budget car. The base sound system is also surprisingly punchy. My wife's 2013 sonata standard system doesn't have nearly as much body or as clear highs. The sound may not touch a premium set of speakers, but having turned down the limited trim with its upgradable speakers I have to say I am plenty happy with the base system. It seems like they must be pushing more wattage than older base head units because it gets loud enough to make your ears ring with only minor distortion. It reminds me of the difference of adding aftermarket speakers and a custom head unit without an amplifier. So better than expected. This car drives a lot more like my 2013 sonata with better electronic steering, than what I used to consider a compact car. I really happen to love the new feel of their steering and also the very quite ride compared to older models. I feel like the car has plenty of power especially in sport mode. I have no doubt a civic especially a si would destroy it but my car only cost 18k after tax and tag and both base packages with the base trim. Honda doesn't offer any breaks to compete with that price. Though I will say the car can cruise at 80 to 90 and still feel smooth and ready to go. Sport mode gives you passing power enough to feel confident in normal city driving so you are not a punching bag. The only time I would want more passing power would be to drive like a jerk. The car also feels very solid on high speed banks. Overall this is the most refined budget compact car I have ever driven. I also find the new civic extremely appealing but the price on the hyundai is infinitely better with all their incentives.
I LOVE this CAR!
Kimmy G.,05/23/2016
I was looking for a car with upgraded technology- My must haves were Back up camera, Navigation, lane change alerts and heated seats. I got the best of all of these along with dual A/C which means I can stop arguing with my spouse about the interior temperature. I cannot believe we got all this in an Elantra! This is my 3rd Elantra (2008/2012) and I honestly wasn't going to get another until I saw this beauty on the lot (shimmery beige). My 2012 got horrible gas mileage, so i wasn't expecting much. To my amazement, I have been getting 33-35 mpg every tank, so that is a mix of all driving. I don't gun it to accelerate, but my husband does, so it is truly a combination of all driving. This week, 35.7! I am not reading the MPG that is on the screen, I am calculating it when I fill my tank, based on miles i drove, so it is completely accurate! It took me awhile to figure out the navigation, but it high quality and great graphics. My only tiny complaint, is that the screen is so sensitive, it is not easy to touch and scroll. I still haven't gotten used to that. It has way better acceleration than my '08I have never been happier with a car. Definitely a "BUY!"
Amazing value in a car!
Adam Arcadipane,03/03/2016
This car is quiet, nimble, conservative yet athletic in its styling, intuitive and perhaps better in fuel economy than its ratings suggest. The overall fit and finish feels expensive and there is a feeling of safety and reliability conveyed. I have the base Limited PZEV model (NY). If I wanted to hire lease payment there was an additional technology package in ultimate package that would have taken this vehicle over the top for me. But hey, we all have a budget. The ride was second to none when compared with others in its segment and despite the slightly dated torsion beam suspension in the rear rather than newer multi-link suspension technology, this car floats! Let's not forget as well that even though this car competes in the compact segment, the 2017 Elantra qualifies as a midsize sedan based on its interior space. Engine pickup is actually not disappointing and feels appropriate for this segment. Want more zing? Pop it in sport mode and you've got more than enough power to giddyup. The steering also tightens in this mode for a better feel around corners at higher speeds. The Limited trim was my favorite by far and dressed out the car quite nicely. Gotta love the 17 in. "Ninja wheels," as I like to call them. The SE trim, however was unexciting and the wheels just didn't do it for me. A disappointment in the Limited model came when discovering that the moon roof did not come standard as in even the second tier trims of the all new Civic. Hyundai promised new trims will be available later. The Hyundai entertainment system lacks text messaging, which can be frustrating, but all models of this year offer Android Auto and Apple Car Play. (be sure to close apps you're not using or it will be slow). Support for Android Auto was was actually high on my list when shopping to replace my 2013 Corolla. Hyundai blue link allows you to start with climate control, unlock, lock, toggle horn and lights and more with it's connected package, which is free for a year and the remote package, which is $75 your first year and 99 after that. Hyundai blue Link app also supports smart watches. These are great features but it is disappointing that there is no remote start on the key fob itself and it is only available through blue link or having an optional remote start added requiring a second key fob. There's also no option to just purchase the package you must have connected package (roadaide assistance, SOS etc.) which is another hundred dollars if you desire the remote package. Want OnStar-like navigation and support? Throw another "hundy" at Hyundai. As far as convenience goes, when approaching the car if it has been locked, the door handles light up, assisting you with getting into your car without damaging it and giving the driver a feel that the car knows him or her. Also, there is a smart trunk which opens when the driver stands behind the trunk with the key fob for more than four seconds with the doors locked. Very very handy! Is it the most full-featured, bells and whistles car out there? Well...no, but it sure does compete and offer amazing value and quality. Every car has pros and cons and there is a very high probability that this car has just the pros you're looking for.

TRAVIS LANGNESS: I'm Travis Langness, Edmunds editor. And this is the Expert Rundown of the 2017 Hyundai Elantra sedan. For 2017, the Elantra's completely redesigned. It's got new styling, front and back, three new engines, and a new seven-speed dual clutch transmission, as well was a classy new interior, and lots of great available tech. In our early tests of the Elantra, we found that acceleration's still kind of behind class leaders. So despite those three new engines, it's not the best performer in the class, but somehow we're not really bothered by that. All the great tech features and the styling do a good job of making the Elantra a good competitor in the class. The top trim levels get stuff like adaptive cruise control, lane departure intervention, and forward collision mitigation. That's really impressive for this class of vehicle. It's got a quiet, comfortable cabin, especially at highway speeds. And it's classy and thoughtfully laid out on the interior. Everything feels pretty high quality when you touch it. It might sound a bit counterintuitive. But honestly, the one we recommend when you're looking at the Elantra is the base level SE. You can get upgrades like the Popular Equipment package that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a rear view camera. And at that level, it keeps your monthly payments pretty low. Bottom line, the Elantra is much improved for 2017. And it's a really competitive segment. Other leaders, like the Honda Civic and the Mazda 3, are still at the top of the class. But we definitely like the Elantra. And we think it's worth taking a look at. For more reviews of key competitors, go to YouTube and check out more of the Edmunds Expert Rundowns.

More about the 2017 Hyundai Elantra

Compact sedans such as the 2017 Hyundai Elantra aren't built to attract attention. They're basic workhorses for commuting, errand running and general hauling. They're noble appliances built to expend themselves in serving the needs of people who work for a living and can't risk owning a car that doesn't start every morning. Give credit to the Elantra, then. It does everything it must do and looks good while doing it.

While the 2017 Elantra is newly refined, it's still a straightforward small, front-wheel-drive sedan. Generally, it carries over the design themes of its bigger brother, the Sonata. So the controls, including the touchscreen, are well positioned and operate intuitively, and everything in the car is designed logically. It's not any bigger than the Elantra that Hyundai introduced back in 2011, but it uses the space it has cleverly and efficiently. Don't let the swoopy roofline fool you: There's room for four in the Elantra. But it's pushing it to shove in five.

The SE and Limited versions of the Elantra are powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 147 horsepower. The SE's standard transmission is a six-speed manual, but most buyers will go with the optional six-speed automatic. And the automatic is standard in the Limited. A new Eco model uses a dinky 1.4-liter four-cylinder blessed with a turbocharger rated at 128 horsepower that feeds a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission tuned for maximum fuel efficiency.

There's also a new Sport model that uses a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 201 horsepower that feeds a standard six-speed manual. It offers the Eco's seven-speed dual-clutch automatic as an option. Sounds tasty.

The Eco, of course, gets the best mileage, with EPA ratings of 35 mpg combined (32 city/40 highway). The mainstream SE with the six-speed automatic knocks out 32 mpg combined (28 city/37 highway).

With only modest power aboard, the SE and Limited are hardly rocket ships. But Hyundai has tuned the suspension exceedingly well for everyday comfort. Driven within its limits, the Elantra is wholly satisfying, if not particularly entertaining.

Base SE models are, well, basic. There's no Bluetooth, no rearview camera and no redundant stereo controls on the steering wheel. The SE can, however, take a big leap forward in convenience and technology by adding in a Popular Equipment package of tech goodies that puts it on par with most mainstream competitors.

The Limited, on the other hand, can be equipped like a true luxury liner. Of course there's leather on the seats, but you also can get adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist (which keeps the car from wandering out of its lane) and xenon headlights that track with the front wheels as they turn.

Cars by Hyundai are first and foremost value propositions, backed by long warranties. That hasn't changed with the 2017 Elantra. Let Edmunds help you find the one that's right for you.

Should I lease or buy a 2017 Hyundai Elantra?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
