Elantra and Elantra Sport

Hyundai announced the release of the Hyundai Elantra Sport for the 2017 model year. The base Elantra and new model don’t look much different from one another. However, there are plenty of changes in store. The largest difference between the Elantra and Elantra Sport comes under the hood and in the suspension. Here’s a quick explanation from us here at Wright Hyundai.

Drivers with a love for performance-driven models will find the Elantra Sport right up their alley. Because the new model boasts a more powerful engine and sportier suspension.

The standard Elantra brings a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine capable of producing 147 hp to the road. The Elantra Sport packs a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that pumps out 200 horsepower. Both versions see the same six-speed manual or seven-speed Dual Clutch Transmission.

While the basic Elantra brings a standard suspension to the road, the Elantra Sport sees the addition of an independent multi-link rear suspension. Hence, that suspension increases the performance-driven feel of the road through optimized handling.Elantra Sport
