New Elantra Debuts at Los Angeles Auto Show

When the new 2017 Hyundai Elantra makes an appearance at the Los Angeles Auto Show this November, customers can expect quite a different look from the low-price economy car that first appeared in 1990. With more sophisticated styling that pays homage to its more expensive brother, the Genesis sedan, upgraded interior features and new technology throughout, the 2017 Elantra promises to provide stiff competition for other entrants in the compact sedan marketplace. The place with the best inventory and best prices will undoubtedly be Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale, where you can test drive the complete line of Hyundai sedans, coupes and crossover vehicles.

Longer and Wider Equals More Interior Room

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra is a bit longer and a bit wider, which translates into a bit more elbow room in the interior. Hyundai has decided to use higher quality materials on the inside, which result in more comfortable seats and an improved feeling of luxury for the inexpensive sedan. A large touch screen in the center of the dash makes navigation and entertainment features easily accessible. Safety features include blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and automatic emergency braking in the case of a crash. Although a diesel engine is available overseas where the vehicle is called the Avante, there is no word if that will be making its way to America.

Now in its Sixth Generation, Elantra Shows Staying Power

When the Hyundai Elantra first debuted in 1990, there was some doubt if the automaker would even be around 25 years later, much less the Elantra. Hyundai was originally known as a second-tier car maker from Korea, which provided reasonable transportation at an inexpensive price. Over the years the company continues to improve on dependability, performance and efficiency until some of the models are now the most highly-rated in America. By the simple fact it is still available 25 years later, the Elantra sedan has shown a staying power that is only matched by a few famous names like Camry and Accord.

Test Drive SUVs or Luxury Equus

If your budget can stand a little more vehicle, head over to Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale and test drive the well-reviewed Tucson and Santa Fe SUVs. With more features than most vehicles in their class at a lower price, they are becoming a popular alternative for people who need to move kids or cargo. The luxury Equus sedan is every bit the sophisticated sedan of some of its more popular European rivals at a much lower price.
