2017 Hyundai Elantra Trim Comparison

On your hunt for the perfect compact sedan, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra caught your eye for all the right reasons. From its sleek style to refined cabin, it is no wonder you can't wait to drive one home. But first, you have to determine which of the three trim levels are right for you. To help you see how they differ, we have compiled a 2017 Hyundai Elantra trim comparison in Columbia, SC, so you can be sure you make the right choice.

Elantra SE

The base trim level of the 2017 Hyundai Elantra is the SE, which kicks things off with 15-inch wheels, projector headlights with Daytime Running Lights, and a driver's blind spot mirror incorporated into the left side mirror, which can fold in so you can squeeze into tight parking spots. On the inside, the SE comes with power windows and door locks, a 6-way adjustable driver's seat, and premium cloth upholstery. The rear seats have a 60/40 split-folding sear, while the tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel makes it easy to get comfortable. For some fun tech, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio brings you a wide range of entertainment options which will be played through the 6-speaker sound system.

In terms of performance, under the hood awaits the 2.0L 4-cylinder engine churning out 147 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque. It can be paired with either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission, and provides an efficient fuel rating of 29/38 MPG city/hwy1.

Elantra Eco

Next up in our 2017 Hyundai Elantra trim comparison in Columbia, SC, is the Elantra Eco. When you cruise down I-77 in the Eco, its turbocharged 1.4L 4-cylinder engine kicks out 128 horsepower and 156 lb.-ft. of torque. Using the exclusive 7-speed EcoShift® Dual Clutch transmission with SHIFTRONIC®, you'll have a fuel rating of 32/40 MPG city/hwy1

This upgraded trim level of the 2017 Elantra comes with even more features to love, including the class-exclusive2 hands-free smart trunk3, which opens automatically once it senses the Proximity Key behind it. You will also have heated side mirrors that melt away snow and ice, as well as LED Daytime Running Lights. Inside, keep warm with heated front seats, enjoy sporty flair with the leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and get on the road fast with push button start.

For innovative technology, take advantage of the Bluetooth® hands-free phone system and the 7-inch touchscreen. From there, you can use Apple CarPlay™4 and Android Auto™5 for safe and seamless use of your smartphone. And, between the two gauges, the 3.5-inch monochromatic cluster displays a quick view of various information. To keep you safe, the Eco trim has Blind Spot Detection6, a rearview camera, Rear Cross-traffic Alert7, Lane Change Assist8, and more.

Elantra Limited

The top trim level of the Elantra is the Limited, which has the same engine as the SE. You'll have upgraded style with chrome accents on the front grille, door handles, and beltline molding. The side mirrors now have turn signal indicators and you will make a lasting impression with LED taillights. Inside, enjoy a power driver seat, supple leather upholstery and adjustable head restraints for all seats. There are now two dual charging USB ports for all your smart gadgets, and Blue Link® technology.
