2017 Elantra Sedan

Premier International Design Competition Picks Hyundai

The International Design Excellence (IDEA) competition is a yearly event that judges excellence in design, innovation, benefit to user, benefit to society, benefit to client and aesthetics. This year more than 1,700 entries from countries around the world gathered in Detroit to show off design in everything from automobiles to children’s products. A panel of judges awarded the 2017 Hyundai Elantra a bronze medal in the compact car segment, citing its “unique and outstanding design.” See the 2017 Elantra now in the showroom at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

Award Confirms Hyundai’s Commitment to Unique Design

“This top honor for the 2017 Elantra shows that Hyundai is committed to creating bold and extraordinary designs,” according to Hyundai President and Lead Design Officer Peter Schreyer. “This award for the 2017 Elantra makes us proud and is a great recognition for our design leadership.” The Hyundai Elantra won in the compact car segment for its sporty aerodynamic design that offers a bold choice against competitors that cost thousands of dollars more. The 2017 Elantra is even priced $100 less than the 2016 model, offering consumers a greater value for an award-winning car.

New Sport Model Adds to Lineup

For 2017, the Hyundai Elantra has added a Sport trim package to the lineup for those seeking a little more performance in their daily drive. The Sport comes with a turbocharged 1.6L four-cylinder engine that tops the 200 horsepower mark, or about 53 more than the standard Elantra. Hyundai is offering a six-speed stick along with the seven speed automatic, giving drivers drivers the ability to power through the gears on a twisty country road. A multilink independent suspension on the rear end provides premium handling at higher speeds along with a smoother ride.

SE, Eco and Limited Models Round Out Lineup

For a starting price of $17,150, the base SE offers a lot of car for the money. Choose the automatic transmission and you get up to 38 mpg on the highway. Safety features such as tire pressure monitoring, electronic stability control, traction control and brake assist are standard on all Elantra models. All Hyundai cars come with the industry’s best warranty, with 5-year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper and 10-year/10,000-mile powertrain coverage. Hyundai also offers Blue Link connectivity with the Elantra, allowing you to communicate with your vehicle via your smartphone or smartwatch. You can check vehicle status, lock or unlock the doors or simply find your car in a crowded parking lot. The 2017 Elantra is ready to test drive right now at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.


Company Dedicated to Reducing Carbon Footprint

This year, Hyundai made the list based on eight evaluation points that are averaged for a final score. “This recognition from Newsweek is a testament to our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint globally,” according to Hyundai North America VP Mike O’Brien. “Hyundai will continue to place importance on its eco-friendly Blue Drive lineup in all segments. Part of this initiative is the arrival of the Hyundai Ioniq late this year, marking Hyundai’s very first car offered in three electric versions to debut in the U.S.” You can view the Hyundai inventory of hybrid and electric vehicles now at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.
