Assembled in Montgomery, Alabama, at Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama, the new Elantra Eco arrives in dealerships this month, joining the rest of the 2017 Hyundai Elantra trims including the value-packed SE and the premium-appointed Limited.

“Now entering its sixth-generation, the Elantra model has always been synonymous with value in the highly competitive compact car segment,” said Mike Evanoff, manager, product planning, Hyundai Motor America.

“With the new Elantra we not only focused key development objectives on performance, ride quality and efficiency, but committed ourselves to delivering a compelling value proposition at all price points. The Eco is an all-new trim for Elantra that offers consumers enhanced fuel efficiency with a 1.4-liter turbocharged and direct injected powertrain combined with standard high-demand features such as Blind Spot Detection and our 7-inch display audio system with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ support.”


The 2017 Elantra is offered in three distinct trim levels to meet the needs of varying consumer preferences:

  • SE: Well-equipped model with popular options and technology
  • Eco: Fuel-efficient turbo model
  • Limited: Premium model with leather, advanced safety technology and features

A Sport model will appear later in the year and push the dynamics and fun-to-drive factor of Elantra to all-new levels.
