Hyundai Elantra Trim Levels


At its core, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra is a highly efficient and powerful vehicle with plenty of interior comforts to offer. But between the five trim levels available for this model, our customers in Middletown, Odessa, and Dover should be aware of the differences among them.

When you begin looking for your next Elantra, we want you to know what to expect. That's why our team at Winner Hyundai has put together this review of the five Hyundai Elantra trim levels.


Though it may be the base trim level of the 2017 Hyundai Elantra, the SE still has many features. The inline 4-cylinder engine can achieve up to 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. And with a multipoint fuel injection system, drivers can maintain an EPA-estimated 26 city/36 highway mpg rating. A 6-speed manual transmission is added for controlled gear shifting, while front disc brakes and rear drum brakes add good stopping power.

A driver's blind spot mirror and available rearview camera with guidelines offer extra awareness to prevent collisions. With a height-adjustable cloth 6-way driver's seat, both front-sitting occupants can ride in comfort. An available 7-inch display audio system with high-resolution touchscreen and Bluetooth® hands-free calling add even more convenience to the Elantra SE experience.

Hyundai Elantra Trim Levels: Value Edition

While the Hyundai Elantra Value Edition shares an inline 4-cylinder engine and multipoint fuel injection system with the SE, it gets better gas mileage at 28 city/37 highway mpg. Horsepower and torque are also the same as the SE, but a 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC® and an active ECO system have been added. The ECO system helps to maximize fuel efficiency, while SHIFTRONIC® allows drivers to shift into semi-automatic gears.

Safety is increased in the Value Edition with features such as the tire pressure monitoring system and a standard rearview camera with guidelines. Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist have also been added. These features will increase driver awareness by alerting you when there are vehicles in your blind spot or when you may be crossing paths with another car.

The Value Edition has several interior features that can't be found in the SE. A power tilt-and-slide sunroof, dual climate control, and heated seats add more temperature control. The 3.5-inch TFT monochromatic cluster display makes it easier to access music and compatible phone functions. And an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink® and compass add navigational benefits.


The Elantra Eco is outfitted with a turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine with a direct fuel injection system. Due to these eco-conscious mechanics, the Eco can achieve 32 city/40 highway mpg. Horsepower drops to 128, but torque increases to 156 lb-ft. A 7-speed EcoShift™ dual clutch transmission with SHIFTRONIC® completes the package, optimizing efficiency.

The Eco shares all safety and interior features with the Value Edition. However, a few are missing, such as the auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink® and compass and the power tilt-and-slide sunroof.


The Elantra Sport shares a fuel injection system with the Eco, but its turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine has been optimized for enhanced output. Sport drivers can reach up to 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. This power may come at the expense of mileage, as it achieves only 22 city/30 highway mpg. A 6-speed manual transmission has also been swapped back in.

Four-wheel disc brakes are included in the Sport to improve stop response as well as a suspension outfit that's exclusive to this trim level. The multi-link independent rear suspension has been fine-tuned for precision steering.

Safety features in the Sport include a tire pressure monitoring system, a rearview camera with guidelines, and a blind spot mirror. Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist are also available.

The interior lineup from the Eco comes standard, but some features have been added. A sport instrument gauge cluster makes it easy to read performance metrics, while dual USB charging ports allow drivers to charge compatible devices. Leather seating is included with front red contrast stitching for extra panache.


As the highest trim level, the Elantra Limited includes more features than its counterparts. The engine, transmission, and injection system are exactly the same as Value Edition. Structurally, it differs only in the 4-wheel disc brakes it shares with the Sport.

However, the list of available safety features in the Limited grows exponentially. For their own convenience, drivers can add Forward Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist, Automatic High Beam Assist, and more.

The Limited shares most interior features with the Value Edition as well, though a few more can be found at this level. Heated rear seats and an integrated memory system for driver's seat and side mirrors are available in addition to adjustable head restrains. All seating surfaces are a smooth leather, making the Limited one of the most comfortable trim levels.
