2016 model year changes
For 2016, Hyundai has added a Value Edition trim to the Elantra lineup. The new trim slots in just above the base SE and Hyundai claims it adds $1,000 in standard features for just $550 more than an SE equipped with the Popular Equipment Package. Elsewhere, the Elantra Limited now has push-button start and automatic dual climate control, while the Elantra Sport loses previously standard features, like leather seating (replaced by cloth) and a power sunroof. As a result, the Sport is now $1,350 less than its 2015 predecessor. Finally, the 5-door GT benefits from a subtle exterior upgrade, including a revised grille and new 17-inch wheels.

Special features for 2016
The Elantra is Hyundai's entry into the compact car market, battling against household names such as the Honda Civic and the Toyota Corolla, as well as hatchbacks like the Ford Focus and MAZDA3. It is a competitive segment, but the Elantra stands out with its bold styling, roomy five-door GT, high level of equipment and outstanding warranty. Starting at $17,250, the Elantra has plenty of standard features and even manages to top 38 mpg on the highway with its 1.8L engine. A 2.0L offers a big boost in power while sacrificing little in the way of economy.
The Hyundai Elantra is a midsized sedan that comes in three trim levels with a decent offering in the base model. Standard outfitting includes: 15” alloy wheels, heated and powered mirrors, tilting and telescoping steering wheel, 60/40-split-folding rear seats, USB and iPod integration and a six-speaker audio system. Upper trim levels and dealer added options can get more things that include: larger wheels (up to 17”), fog lamps, automated headlamps, Bluetooth integration with voice command and 7” touchscreen, back-up camera, sunroof, leather upholstery, LED headlight accents, LED tail lamps, powered and heated front seats, Hyundai’s Blue Link system, sport-tuned suspension, remote entry and start, two-zone climate control, GPS and more. Under the hood is a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that’s rated at 145 horsepower and 130 pound-feet of torque.
