I spent all weekend getting a first hand feel for the 2017 Hyundai Elantra near San Diego California. Nestled near Imperial Beach, Pier South Resort was the location for the awesome unveiling.
More features according to Hyundai:
Assembled in both Montgomery, Alabama and Ulsan, South Korea, the new Elantra distinguishes itself from the compact car class with segment-first premium features such as a hands-free Smart Trunk and Clari-Fi™ music restoration technology, plus additional convenience and safety items. The 2017 Elantra is available with a full suite of the latest advanced safety technologies including Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist System, Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection and Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist. The Elantra is expected to receive a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and a 5-Star Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
On to the interior...
How dope is it that it has both Android Auto and Apple Play? I connected my phone really fast, and the interface is similar to how your iPhone looks. Its very user friendly, the menu is not overly complicated, but at the same time it is equipped anything extra special. Because of the size, the Elantra is actually classified as a Mid Size car by the EPA.
The 8 speaker ClariFi system is very clear! I think my personal car just has the worst factory speakers so when I come across a great speaker I appreciate it. This is a new music restoration technology that really helps enhance all of the audio we stream from things like SiriusXM, Spotify or Pandora. I need it in my life.
So may great features for an affordable price.
Thank you Hyundai for this awesome drive experience! The 2017 Elantra is beautiful.
