Here’s what you need to know about Hyundai’s Superstructure and the 2017 ElantraNews & Events Jun 19th, 2018
You may have recently heard about Hyundai’s new Superstructure, the platform on which the 2017 Hyundai Elantra is built. Although automakers like to brag about offering unique new technologies that make their vehicles perform better, Hyundai has actually managed to create something quite exclusive, especially in the compact sedan segment. And it’s all because of its roots.
What is Hyundai’s Superstructure exactly?
To understand Hyundai’s new Superstructure, you have to understand that Hyundai is at its core a steel company with an automotive division. This gives the latter access to advanced high-strength steel at a faction of the regular cost, and thus has enabled Hyundai engineers to develop a unique structure on which to develop the all-new 2017 Hyundai Elantra.
This new structure uses 53 % high-strength steel which means that is more rigid than a traditional vehicle platform. In turn, this means that the 2017 Hyundai Elantra is safer, performs better, handles better, and is more comfortable.
Hyundai’s Superstructure makes your vehicle more stable
Being stronger, Hyundai’s Superstructure makes the Elantra safer as it is better able to withstand an accident, and won’t bend or break easily. That means that the occupants are protected by a steel shell that ensures that the forces generated by a collision are dispersed away from the driver and the passengers.
Combine this with features such as Adaptive Cruise Control, automatic braking, Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keeping Assist and Blind Spot detection, and you have a 2017 Hyundai Elantra that can not only prevent accidents, but keep you well protected should they happen.
But that’s not the only advantage. Indeed, Hyundai’s Superstructure is capable of filtering out road noises and reduces vibrations felt inside the cockpit which ultimately make the 2017 Hyundai Elantra more comfortable. Moreover, the superstructure is much more rigid which means a more balanced and stable drive, and better handling.
