First revealed at the Los Angeles Auto Show in the last 2015, the newest version of Elantra has been ready to launch. Shown up as a mid-size sedan, the forthcoming vehicle has undergone the stunning mixing of design, performance and also the price. In comparison to its fellow competitors, the row of Elantra sedan is somewhat more affordable. It might be in line to the company’s plan as it shots the youngsters as the primary market target. However, the new 2018 Hyundai Elantra will be coming along with all the great changes and improvements.
One clear updates could be noticed on the headlamps and grille as those are much influenced with the concept of the new Genesis models. The Elantra sedan could be available in two different trim levels, a sedan and a hatchback, despite most reports claim the latter is the only model offered. Having a hatch is the mainstay, the Hyundai is expected to get the similar sales as the i30 in Europe.

There remains two engine options going to be injected under the hood of 2018 Hyundai Elantra. Those are embodied along the engine versions of a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder 147 BHP motor and a 1.4 liter turbocharged 4-cylinder motor with 128 BHP, some say a 1.8 liter 4-cylinder motor. As for the last option, none has made a reliable explanation on it, thus, the first two drivetrains are most likely to use. Nevertheless, along with not really high given price, just expect there won’t be the power over 300 BHP. The engine has considered engaging a 6-speed automatic or manual transmission to be paired with the selected engines.
The official price and release date of the Elantra has not been confirmed. The latest expectation reveals the new 2018 Hyundai Elantra might be ready to hit the marketplace sometime in the end of 2017. The beginning price of the base sedan starts at approximately $17,600 and a bit higher up to $22,000 for the premium trim version.
