What's New for the 2018 Hyundai Elantra?
Though the Elantra has largely carried over from the 2017 model year, a new SEL trim has been introduced just above the base model SE. In addition, the top-of-the-line Sport model has received new standard features for 2018, including a sunroof, lane change assistance, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. The hatchback model of the Elantra, known as the GT, has been completely redesigned for the 2018 model year and is available in two trims, one of which is a high-performance sport model.
Trims and Features
The Elantra can accommodate up to five passengers in comfortable, supportive seats. Two LATCH connectors for child safety seats are included. You'll enjoy above-average trunk space for a compact of 14.4 cubic feet.
The SE trim is equipped with a six-speaker stereo system that has Bluetooth and USB connectivity. Opt for the new SEL trim to enjoy a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The SEL model also includes a rearview camera, rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, and lane change assist.
Choose the Eco trim to enjoy an exclusive fuel-sipping powertrain as well as a hands-free liftgate, two-zone automatic climate control, and heated front seats. The Limited trim ups the luxury ante with leather upholstery, a power-adjustable driver's seat, and two additional USB ports. It's also the lowest trim for which an add-on options package are available. This Ultimate equipment group comprises a larger touchscreen with navigation, a sunroof, heated seats throughout the vehicle, a premium Infinity audio system, and even more advanced driver assistance tech including adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian detection.
Elantra drivers can choose between three distinctive powertrains. In the base model, you'll get a four-cylinder engine that provides 147-horsepower; depending on trim, it's equipped with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. The combination provides 28 city/37 highway miles per gallon, among the best fuel economy numbers in the class. If you choose the Elantra Eco, it's equipped with a 128-hp turbo-four that offers an outstanding 32/40 city/highway miles per gallon as estimated by the EPA. Reviewers say that the front-wheel drive system in the 2018 Hyundai Elantra provides a smooth, peppy ride.
The 2018 Hyundai Elantra has been granted Top Safety Pick status from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, earning the highest crash test ratings in every category.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Hyundai Elantra
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Hyundai Elantra invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
Note: All Hyundai Elantra MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
