2017 Hyundai Elantra Eco completely revealed! Here's all you need to know!
Hyundai Motor America announced even more details for the all-new 2017 Elantra Eco, coming with efficient turbocharged powertrain, advanced safety features and cutting-edge technology gadgets. Assembled in Montgomery at Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama, the Elantra Eco will be available for order later this month.
2017 Hyundai Elantra and its offerings
For the 2017 vehicle model year, Hyundai offers a total of three trim levels: SE, Eco and Limited. And the good news is that there will be a fourth trim level that would be announced later this year.
Geared with the efficient 1.4-liter Kappa turbocharged GDI 4-cylinder power unit that produces a total of 128hp (95kW) and 156 lb-ft of torque at 1,400-3,700rpm, the vehicle is ready for some action. And provided that this unit is paired to a seven-speed EcoShift dual-clutch gearbox that provides enhanced dynamics and efficiency, we are pretty sure that this vehicle will be both efficient and agile.
In terms of design concept, the Elantra Eco shares some well-known features with the rest of the Elantra lineup: the overall aerodynamic design, the signature hexagon grille and more. What makes difference, though, is the "Eco" badging, the distinctive 15-inch alloys and vertical LED daytime running lights.

The inside has also undergone some changes: the cockpit is entirely driver-oriented and provides some premium and luxury feel. There is a large 7.0-inch Display Audio touch screen, Apple Carplay and Android Auto systems, push-button start, heated front seats, dual automatic temperature control and leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel.
Also, there is a special Ultimate package upgrade for the Limited trim that brings Automatic Emergency Braking, Pedestrian Detection system, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist system and High Beam Assist.
Prices for the new 2017 Hyundai Elantra Eco start from $17,150 USD.
