A turbo engine for the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport in Toronto
Available starting at $24,999, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that uses turbocharging to develop 201 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque. On the road, you immediately feel this power as soon as you press the right pedal while the performance is linear and there is always enough oomph under your right foot, no matter the situation.
The engine sends its power to the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Having this double clutch makes it possible to exploit all the Elantra Sport’s power without any interruption as you climb the gears. As for the manual transmission, it is easy to handle and light enough not to be a nuisance in the city. In return, it is just heavy enough to ensure that the driver always feels in control.
At the heart of the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport is the SuperStructure, a brand new platform that also serves as the starting point for all new Elantra versions. This structure is made of very high-strength steel and offers several advantages. Firstly, a rigid platform ensures optimum comfort since don’t feel the bumps and the holes in the road as much. There is also less vibration and it is quieter.
Thereafter, the SuperStructure improves handling and overall agility since the structure doesn’t flex as much and the car is more stable. Finally, safety is also improved as a stiffer structure provides greater protection in the event of an accident.
