Generation Overview

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra started the sixth generation, which runs from 2017 to 2020. It simplifies the exterior with subtler character lines and adds a new lower air dam that diverts air to the wheel curtains. The result is lower wind resistance.

Among the big changes for this group are the addition of these engines:

  • The standard 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder with Dual-Continuous Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT) generates 147 hp and 132 pound-feet of torque when properly equipped.
  • Available on the Eco trim is the 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that delivers 128 hp and 156 pound-feet of torque when properly equipped.
  • The highest-performing engine on the GT is the 2.0-liter NU Gasoline Direct injection four-cylinder with D-CVVT that puts out up to 173 hp and 154 pound-feet of torque when properly equipped.

In the front, the integrated front wheel air curtains help minimize turbulence from the front to around the wheels. The dynamic bending lights aim the beams of the high-intensity discharge headlamps in the direction of your turn, letting you see around curves more quickly. Minimizing drag for the rest of the exterior are underbody covers, the aerodynamic spoiler for the bottom of the rear bumper, and a rear decklid.

Reviews for 2017 Hyundai Elantra

Overall Rating

4.3 out of 5 (53 reviews)


I have had this car for about four months and it ran smoothly with no problems for the first 30 days or so. As soon as my warranty was over with CarMax (30 or 60 days that I could report any problems and get it fixed at no cost) the car started acting up. Engine light continuously comes on and the car shakes a lot. I attempted to get it fixed at a Repair Pal facility (since CarMax is closed due to COVID-19) and they said they couldn’t do anything until the engine light is on while the car is with them. This is after they checked the engine and found an error code.

- Terence B, 2017 Hyundai Elantra


This car is the Limited so it is fully loaded with almost everything you could think of. The car drives GREAT and although the HP is lower than my previous car, it has A LOT of get up and go! One of the ignition coils started to go out right at 160k miles, but the 90 day CarMax warranty covered to repair 100%. Not only would I recommend this car, I will also ONLY shop at CarMax in Greenville from now on!


  • Fuel Economy: it gets great gas mileage
  • Ride and Handling: it rides so well and handles on curvy roads like a small sports car
  • Styling: I LOVE the look of this car! Very sleek and sporty.


  • Interior Space: it is a little smaller than I am used to but It would not stop me from purchasing another one

- Brandi Callahan, 2017 Hyundai Elantra

Great commuter

This car is a great commuter car i am more of a luxury car person i had Acuras in the past and live by them but life happens i went and test drove a Hyundai because i was in a crunch in needing a new car. And i was amazed on how well it felt. Solid, a little pep for a 2.0L engine, the sport mode wakes the car up. I average about 38mpg highway and thats kinda pushing it i usually drive between 70-75 mph on the highway and city i get about 33mpg.


  • Fuel Economy: Great for long driving
  • Ride and Handling: Feels good for a base model vehicle
  • Reliability:


  • Technology and Entertainment: Out of date doesn't have bluetooth
  • Dashboard: Basic
  • Cabin Noise:
