The 2018 Hyundai Elantra is designed to make driving fun and easy, which means your journeys — work commutes, kid transport and road trips — are fun and easy. And doesn’t everyone need more fun and easy in their lives?
The 2018 Elantra keeps your life moving with smart and inventive features such as a driver’s seat that automatically gives you more room when you get out of the car and the available hands-free smart trunk, which opens upon approach — the first car with this feature in its segment.
A cozy, well-styled cabin boasts available features including heated front seats, dual automatic temperature control with CleanAir Ionizer and Auto Defogging System, leather seats and leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The 60/40 split fold-down rear seatback offers you versatility for passengers and cargo.
Getting away from it all is easy in the 2018 Hyundai Elantra. Even on a crowded highway, you and your passengers will be oblivious to the chaos around you due to the Elantra’s engineering, which is designed to block out noise, vibration and harshness.
Driving at night has always been a challenge, but the 2018 Hyundai Elantra’s available HID headlights with Dynamic Bending Light, which “bends” to every twist and turn you take, makes night driving easier and safer. Available heated side mirrors with turn signal indicators, door handle approach lights and a power tilt-and-slide sunroof add to the Elantra’s intelligent design scheme.
