Hyundai introduced its 6th-generation compact sedan and hatchback series Elantra to add more safety and comfort features for 2018. The technologies working behind came out to be better than before as it continues to conquer the market. The Elantra Value Edition didn’t compromise in anything, rather has added value to the car from every angle. Be it the stylish look, an assuring warranty of 10 years/100,000 miles for the powertrain, or the availability of premium amenities, the 2018 Hyundai Elantra Value Edition leaves out nothing to grumble. As commented by the Hyundai Burlington dealer experts, the standard maintained in the 2018 Hyundai Elantra continues to be the perfect blend of refined taste, sober yet robust driving, and supreme efficiency.

What’s New for 2018

The Hyundai Elantra for the value edition comes with some added features for its 2018 version to stay afloat with the contemporary demands. While we find in the SEL Elantra a few popular equipment sets like:

  • Blind Spot Detection,
  • Rear Cross-traffic Alert,
  • Lane Change Assist,
  • Heated outside mirrors
  • 7-inch in-dash display

The Eco model pours in more value and further efficiency, as the Sport and GT hatchback models are made more active to motivate the young drivers.

Driving Impressions

The 2018 Elantra Value Edition model impress the car enthusiasts by synchronizing the right amount of comfort with efficiency and robust driving experience. The standard Elantra acquires a new 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle 4-cylinder engine that brews up 147 of horsepower and is available with a 6-speed automatic transmission. If one goes for the Drive Mode Select then, the combo can do magic on roads.

Elantra maintains equal spirit while going off road. Driving and romping through the winding roads of mountains or sneaking and weaving through city avenues with 2-lanes get thrilling yet enjoyable without much of a pounding heart. As the Sport mode would make you smile with its highly responsive steering and shift patterns, the Normal mode with its smoother shifts and throttle would allow you to enjoy the scenario of the journey without a hitch.

Stunning Features

Power Trunk

The 2018 Elantra stands apart from its rivals because of the pleasant surprises it brings with it. One such feature is the power-operated trunk, that has pushed the level of convenience to the next with its hands-free operating mode. The key fob will do all the work for you, once you walk behind the car, and wait for a few seconds. The trunk will start opening of its own.

Dual-Clutch Transmission

Both the Elantra Sport and GT Sport trims would make you happy with their 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, that has added a whole new dimension to the regular driving experience.

Gas Saving

According to the Hyundai dealer Burlington, the 2018 Elantra Eco model is specially crafted to reduce the consumption of gas. The dual-clutch transmission technology is implemented to improve the rate of fuel economy.

The Bottom Line

To round up the ways how the 2018 Elantra Value Edition model adds value to the vehicle, we can count on its stylized structure, an excellent span of warranty, a good lot of luxury features and sporty rides that are rare to find in other hatchbacks in the class.
