The idea here is to get more for your hard earned money in a more affordable package with the Value Editions having features you would only expect on a Hyundai Elantra higher in the range. The Value Edition was rolled out recently on the Accent, which has now been expanded out to the Elantra.
So what you get with all this value?
For starters you'll find LED running lights, blindspot detection with rear cross traffic alert and lane change assist. You also get in the package heated front seats, power driver seat, power sunroof, leather steering wheel, leather shift knob, electronic button ignition, dual zone climate control, auto-dimming rearview mirror and HomeLink system.
You also get a 7 inch display screen, which plugs into Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which means your more or less covered for every modern convenience.
“It’s critically important to give our customers a wide variety of options so there’s an Elantra to meet their needs,” said Mike Evanoff, Product Planning Manager. “The Value Edition lands at a real sweet spot on the spectrum of amenities and price tag,” Evanoff said.
The engine is the same as the SE with the l4 147hp with the Elantra Value Edition only having the six speed automatic at your disposal, meaning you'll have to upgrade to the SE or Sport if you want the six speed manual version. The great thing here though is that you have loads of options and models to cover every base in the Elantra lineup.
All this amounts to $20,250, which Hyundai say will save you $1,400 on paying for the options individually, but it is also $3,100 on top of a base price Elantra at $17,150.
If you wanted something with a bit more on the luxury or sport side, you could opt for the Elantra Limited which starts at $22,350 or the Elantra Sport at $21,650 for the manual version $22,750.
The Full Elantra Line Up
The nice guys and gals at Hyundai have added a lot across the Elantra range for 2017 which goes from the SE model, Value Edition, Eco, Sport and Limited. The SE has been given more standard content with steering wheel phone more control over the audio , along with a high strength steel body which applies across the range.
Basically, something for everybody.
