Hyundai was able to develop a completely new structure that uses a high concentration of high-strength steel. The new structure is therefore more rigid, which improves all aspects of the drive, from comfort to handling.
The compact sedan segment is one of the most popular and important in Canada, and Hyundai knows that. That's why the automaker’s engineers worked very hard when developing the latest generation of the Hyundai Elantra. With the 2017 Hyundai Elantra, Hyundai has developed an even more fuel-efficient and even more fun-to-drive car that is also safer. It’s no surprise that the Elantra remains one of the best-selling cars in Canada.
A new, impressive platform for the 2017 Hyundai Elantra
If the 2017 Hyundai Elantra is so impressive, it’s because it is built on a brand-new platform called Superstructure, exclusive to Hyundai. Many consumers are unaware that Hyundai is also a steel producer, and this allows the automotive division to have access to high-strength steel at a more affordable price than other competitors.
Hyundai was able to develop a completely new structure that uses a high concentration of high-strength steel. The new structure is therefore more rigid, which improves all aspects of the drive, from comfort to handling. In addition, the Superstructure also greatly improves safety by providing better protection for occupants in the event of an impact. Finally, this structure reduces vibrations inside the cabin and improves soundproofing for a greater level of comfort.
In addition to the new Superstructure, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra also stands out with its impressive list of equipment, such as standard heated seats, available at only $15,999. The Elantra is the only car in its segment to offer heated seats at no extra cost.
Hyundai's new compact sedan also offers state-of-the-art driving assistance technologies such as automatic cruise control, automatic braking, rear cross-traffic monitoring and lane departure warning system.
Economy engine for the new 2017 Hyundai Elantra
