The 2017 Elantra features Hyundai’s latest design language and its face is defined by the large hexagonal grille. In terms of its size, the new Elantra is only 0.8-inches longer and 1-inch wider than the outgoing model at 179,9 inches long and 70.9 inches wide. Thanks to the application of underbody covers, an aerodynamic rear bumper bottom spoiler and front wheel air curtains, the 2017 Elantra slips through the wind with a 0.27 coefficient of drag.
