2018 Hyundai ELANTRA

The 2018 Hyundai Elantra: Compact Car Excellence for Virginia Shoppers

It’s hard to beat a compact car when it comes to fuel economy and, usually, overall affordability. But if you’re looking for more than a budget buy that barely meets all of your needs, not to mention your wants, then you have to do your homework.

We can make that a little easier by showing you what one of our favorite compact cars, the 2018 Hyundai Elantra, brings to the segment.

First, it has practicality going for it in those aforementioned realms of affordability, reliability, and efficiency. In fact, the Elantra is one of the more affordable cars in the compact class. But it has far more than barebones functionality, giving it value beyond its modest price.

The spacious interior offers plenty of available technology features as well as safety systems, and cargo space in the trunk is above average for a compact car.

There are plenty of options in the 2018 Elantra’s trim lineup. With six trims to choose from, spanning a range of prices and feature offerings, there’s sure to be an Elantra that fits in with your particular set of driving needs and desires.

All that and more makes the 2018 Elantra worth a closer look, and you can explore it to your heart’s content when you visit Safford Hyundai of Springfield and check out the Hyundai Elantra models we have in stock. See how you feel behind the wheel of this excellent vehicle when you take it for a spin and determine which trim suits you best.

Take a Closer Look at the 2018 Hyundai Elantra Interior
Designed using high-quality materials, the Elantra’s cabin is roomy and thoughtfully appointed. Its standard features include Bluetooth®*, a six-speaker audio system, and a USB port, and there are many available features that add to or upgrade the standard equipment. Available features include dual-zone automatic control, a sunroof, an upgraded audio system, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay. The dashboard is well designed and driver-friendly, putting controls within easy reach for safety and convenience.

Speaking of safety, it is a major player in the Elantra, which offers helpful protective and warning systems like blind spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and adaptive cruise control.

Cargo space is ample for the class, with a more spacious trunk (at 14.4 cubic feet in sedan models and 24.9 cubic feet in the hatchback Elantra GT models) than what can be found in many compact cars.

2018 Elantra Exterior
The modern, sporty-looking Elantra has clean lines and a smooth profile, and it comes in both sedan and hatchback body styles. Choose among the available exterior accessories to customize your Elantra to your preferences. Exterior paint colors for the 2018 Elantra model lineup are: White, Silver, Beige, Gray, Electric Blue, Lakeside Blue, Red, and Black.

A Word about Performance

The Eco trim gets a 1.4L turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine with 128 hp and 156 lb-ft of torque, while the Sport trim is powered by 1.6L turbo 4-cylinder with 201 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque.
