2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport
At the heart of all this power is a 1.6 Turbo GDI four-cylinder engine that cranks out an impressive 200-hp and 190-lb.-ft. of torque.
As far as the transmission goes, you have the choice between a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed DCT automatic.
This model is more than just a great display of power, though, as it is also incredibly fun to drive, thanks in large part to the addition of an independent multi-link rear suspension that delivers improved feel and dynamics.
There have also been upgrades made to the brakes, steering, and the spring and damper rates.
The brakes in particular are important with this model offering more power and riding on 18-inch alloy wheels.
On the inside, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport features heated leather seats up front, each of which is more heavily bolstered than before.
It also comes with a sporty D-shaped, leather-wrapped steering wheel, red contrast stitching, and a black headliner.
While these are all considered upgrades, they have been chosen to complement the impressive list of standard features, which includes HID headlights, 7-inch display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a proximity key with push button start.
