2016 Hyundai Elantra: Little but Loaded with Features

The 2016 Hyundai Elantra truly is a shockingly good bang-for-your-buck vehicle.

In 2011, when Hyundai revealed its latest version of the Hyundai Elantra with a brand new fluidic design, the automotive world stopped and took serious notice. Now, a few years later, that same modern and fluid design remains, and is just as attractive and eye-catching as it was then. The Elantra has seen minimal changes and/or upgrades since then, but that’s not a bad thing at all.

Bringing the Best Parts Back

Take a moment to absorb the overall look of the flowing, sculpted lines of the 2016 Hyundai Elantra, along with LED headlights/taillights. The look is one of overall youthfulness with a touch of sporty character, as well. In either body style (sedan of hatchback) the exterior look is loaded with curb appeal and presence on the road. It’s a great looking little car, that’s for sure. And you’ll definitely want to check out the interior as well, which is full of amenities and creature comforts you’d probably not expect to find in this price bracket or segment.

With features such as air conditioning, heated front seats, SiriusXM satellite radio, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, power door locks and windows, Bluetooth, and remote keyless entry as standard on the GL model that start under $20k, the 2016 Hyundai Elantra truly is a shockingly good bang-for-your-buck vehicle. That’s not your only option as there are no less than ten models to choose from across the 2016 Elantra lineup (sedan/GT).

Higher trim levels in the Elantra will see amenities such as a 7” high-resolution touchscreen, leather-wrapped steering wheel and seats, push-button start, and a 360-Watt stereo with six speakers and external amp.

Worth Every Penny

Regardless of body style or trim choice, the 2016 Hyundai Elantra comes equipped with the same engine across the lineup: a 2.0L GDI 4-cylinder that produces 173 horsepower and 154 lb-ft of torque. Transmission choices reside in a 6-speed manual (standard on all base L models), and a 6-speed automatic. Power is sent to the front wheels across the board.

The 2016 Hyundai Elantra is an affordable, well-appointed compact car. It’s very well equipped even in base trim, which is only one reason the Elantra is uber appealing. Add to that the 2016 Elantra’s modern design and amenities, and it’s easy to see why it appeals to such a large demographic of buyers.
