FOUNTAIN VALLEY, California – The redesigned 2017 Hyundai Elantra midsize sedan is bound for Hyundai dealerships in January, with a $100 price cut on the base model.
The 2017 Elantra SE with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and a six-speed manual transmission starts at $17,985, including an $835 destination charge.
An Elantra SE with the same engine and a six-speed automatic transmission is priced at $18,985, including shipping.
The premium 2017 Elantra Limited model with leather and advanced safety features is priced at $23,185, including shipping, for a $650 price increase over the 2015 Elantra Limited.
An ECO model will be available in the spring. Pricing will be announced closer to launch date, Hyundai said.
A Sport model, described as “the most dynamic Elantra ever,” will go on sale later this year.
The base Elantra SE is available with an $800 Popular Equipment package that includes cruise control, a rearview camera and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support. A $1,300 Tech package adds several items, including LED daytime running lights, a blind-spot detection system with rear cross-traffic alert and a hands-free “smart” trunk.
Key Elantra competitors include the Ford Focus, Honda Civic, Mazda 3 and Toyota Corolla.
Edmunds says: Car shoppers in this crowded segment will appreciate a modest price cut on the base 2017 Hyundai Elantra. But they should be aware of a price increase on the top-of-the-line model.
