2018 HYUNDAI ELANTRA ECO ACTION REVIEW! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOGThe Hyundai Elantra (Korean: 현대 엘란트라), or Hyundai Avante (현대 아반떼) in South Korea, is a compact car produced by the South Korean manufacturer Hyundai since 1990.

It is now in its sixth generation.

The Elantra was initially marketed as the Lantra in Australia and some European markets.

In Australia, this was due to the similarly named Mitsubishi Magna Elante model.

This gave rise to disagreement with other motor manufacturers, and the name was standardized as “Elantra” worldwide in 2001 (except in Korea). Roughly halfway through the 2017 model year, Hyundai released a Sport model for the North American market.

The Sport slots between the Eco and Limited models and is differentiated externally by different headlights and taillights, ground effects, a more aggressive front and rear bumper and dual chrome-tipped exhaust outlets.

Under the hood, the Sport features a Turbocharged 1.6-liter direct-injected four cylinder producing 201 hp (150 kW) and 195 lb⋅ft (264 N⋅m) of torque.

Transmission options include a 7-speed dual clutch automatic with manual shift mode or a traditional 6-speed manual.

Additional modifications for the sport include a flat-bottomed steering wheel, red stitching on the seats, shift boot and steering wheel, larger front brakes, 18″ alloy wheels, an independent multi-link rear suspension, a thicker front stabilizer bar and a steering ratio tuned for a quicker, sportier feel.

2018 model year: A power sunroof and blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and lane change assist are standard.
