2016 Hyundai Elantra Overview

If you are doing homework on used compact to midsize cars, there is a vehicle in its sixth generation worth a closer look. It is the 2016 Elantra. Built by South Korean automaker Hyundai, the Elantra has been in production for over a quarter century. For 2016, the Elantra is available in four trim packages: the SE, Value Edition, Sport and Limited. This is a fuel-efficient, four-door vehicle that also comes in a five-door hatchback edition. It seats five comfortably and has fastback styling that gives it an expensiveappearance than.

2016 Hyundai Elantra History

The Elantra made its debut in October of 1990 as a compact car, and it was preceded by the Hyundai Stellar. It soon offered features like ABS brakes, front airbags, fog lamps and power-operated side mirrors. The Hyundai Elantra has always been forward-thinking in its features.

The 1990 Elantra was introduced powered by a Mitsubishi 1.6L -four engine.

  • The second generation Elantra was introduced in 1995 and included a station wagon model
  • n 2001, front and front side airbags were included as standard equipment
  • The LPI Hybrid was presented at the 2009 Seoul Motor Show
  • n 2004, Hyundai announced the discontinuation of its coupe models
  • The 2016 Elantra sedan was awarded a -Star Overall Safety Rating by the NHTSA

While many competitive models have come and gone, the Elantra continues forward. The fact that so many vehicles have been produced over the years ensures parts and mechanical knowledge for the Elantra will be around for a very long time. It has grown up through the years and is now considered a midsize car with some luxury features.

How It Drives

This is a sportier edition of the Elantra and is a bit more fun to drive than previous years. The steering is improved, and its 1.8L inline-four generates 148 hp which allows for smooth acceleration. The 2.0L provides even more power at 173 hp. The six-speed manual transmission gives the driver a better connection with this machine. The Sport model provides particularly responsive handling, but all 2016 models come with a Driver Selectable Steering Mode system that lets the driver choose between Comfort mode, Normal mode, or Sport mode.

Used 2016 Hyundai Elantra Value

In recent years, Hyundai has worked hard to deliver value for its brand, offering five-year overall warranties and 10-year powertrain warranties. The Elantra, after all, faces some tough competition in the Honda Civic, Ford Focus, Chevy Cruze and Toyota Corolla. The 2016 model has grown to a midsize car, giving it a roomier, more comfortable ride, and even more value.

Design & Performance

The 2016 Elantra's exterior is designed with a fastback appearance and smooth lines. Hyundai refers to it as "Fluidic Sculpture." The front grille is slightly aggressive in appearance. Highlights of its exterior design features include:

  • Headlights that wrap around the front end and include LED accents
  • Fog lights
  • LED rear taillights
  • A longer wheelbase
  • A lower, sportier profile

One of the best performance features of the Elantra is its excellent fuel mileage. The base engine gets up to 28 mpg city and 37 mpg highway. Even the larger, 2.0L engine performs well at 24 mpg city and 32 mpg highway.

Powertrain & Engine

The base engine provided in the Elantra is a 1.8L inline-four cylinder that produces a more than sufficient 148 hp. Hyundai says the Elantra sedan has more horsepower than the Corolla from Toyota or the Sentra from Nissan. Upgrading to the 2.0L engine provides 173 hp. Choose from a standard six-speed transmission or a six-speed automatic version. Hyundai provides a 10-year warranty on its powertrain.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

This larger edition of the Elantra for 2016 is roomier, more comfortable, and features upgraded amenities. All Elantras come with power windows, locks, and mirrors. Telescopic steering is standard and for Elantras equipped with automatic transmission, air conditioning and cruise control are included. Technological advances include:

  • Bluetooth with audio streaming
  • Audio streams through the Pandora app via a USB connection
  • A 4.3-inch touch screen infotainment system and rear view camera are standard on Sport and Limited models
  • Proximity Key entry with an electronic push button start
  • Smartphone/USB and auxiliary input jacks along with SiriusXM Satellite Radio

There's more rear legroom in the 2016 Elantra that families will appreciate. It is a vehicle that has matured but retains its youthful spirit. It has a high safety rating and compares favorably with the competition. For those looking for a compact to midsize used car, the 2016 Hyundai Elantra offers some pleasant surprises.
