Hyundai says the Sport model is the most powerful Elantra ever thanks to its turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder; it should make "more than 200 horsepower" according to the automaker. In the Veloster hatchback, the engine is good for 201 hp. Transmissions include a six-speed manual transmission or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with paddle shifters. The go-fast Elantra also will have an independent rear suspension versus the regular Elantra's semi-independent torsion-beam rear setup.
Outside, the sedan wears a more aggressive looking grille and specific badges. Interior additions include a flat-bottomed steering wheel, sport seats and red contrast stitching.
The 2017 Elantra Sport will go on sale at the end of this year; Hyundai says it'll release more details — including pricing — closer to the car's on-sale date. Check out the gallery below.
