Spied…The New Elantra Sport!

2017 Hyundai Elantra Limited

Hyundai’s new Elantra Sport has been spied in South Korea, and we at Joe Holland Hyundai love the new look! We were not expecting to see the vehicle until the 2016 SEMA Show this October, so the sneak peak is quite exciting!

The Elantra Sport is aimed at the performance enthusiast, and it has unique styling on the front and rear which create significant body changes. From the pictures, it appears to have a newly designed bumper and ride on a lower chassis. In addition, there are extended chrome trims and a diffuser housing a dual pipe setup.

There has not been a high performance compact model, so the Elantra Sport will definitely be a unique vehicle. The powertrain has not yet been debuted, but it might be Hyundai’s 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine paired with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. It may also have an optional six-speed manual, similar to the Veloster Turbo.

We may have to wait a bit longer for actual details of the new Elantra Sport, but for pictures of the spied vehicle, click here.
