Understand the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Eco
2017 Hyundai Elantra Eco vs. Elantra SE
The Hyundai Elantra received an impressive redesign for the 2017 model year, elevating it to the top of the compact sedan segment. The newest Elantra range now features three engine options and noticeably improved ride quality, so you can expect a smoother drive, more power, and better fuel efficiency. As you consider your options within the Elantra range, one trim level might stand out for drivers seeking top-tier fuel efficiency. That trim, of course, is the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Eco near Denver, CO.
How Efficient is the Hyundai Elantra Eco?
The Hyundai Elantra Eco is the most fuel-efficient trim in the Elantra family for 2017. Rather than the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine you’d find in the 2017 Hyundai Elantra base trim, the Elantra Eco utilizes a 1.4-liter inline four-cylinder engine rated for 128 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque. Although the horsepower ratings in the Eco’s engine are about 20 horsepower short of the naturally aspirated engine in the SE, the Eco model actually offers about 20 more pound-feet of torque.
Perhaps most importantly, if you’re considering the Eco for its efficiency, the 2017 Elantra Eco is rated for 32 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway. With a 14-gallon fuel tank capacity, your gas stations stops will be far less frequent.
2017 Hyundai Elantra Eco Equipment
The fuel-efficiency benefits of choosing the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Eco are great, but there is more to love when you take a look at the equipment upgrades included with this trim. Some of the best features include a sunroof, hands-free trunk opening, blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alerts, heated front seats, and a sleek leather-wrapped steering wheel.
