South Korean multinational car manufacturer showed Hyundai Elantra for the first time, back in 1990. This compact sedan is known as Hyundai Avante in South Korea, but in Europe is known as Hyundai Elantra. Anticipated changes for fifth generation include refreshed exterior styling, mainly at the front and rear parts of the vehicle, along with few updates to the car’s interior. It is possible that 2014 Hyundai Elantra receives one or more new wheel designs, but the biggest improvement is, for sure, the engine. Elantra’s competitors already lag behind, and now, with these innovations Hyundai will maintain the leader’s position.
Already mentioned advantage among its competition will be saved, mostly with 2014 Hyundai Elantra performance. Old 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that produced 148-horsepower will remain standard engine. It was combined with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, and it still is. For 2014 Hyundai Elantra will be offered direct fuel-injected 2.0-liter engine, as optional. It is expected that new engine will generate 175 horses at the least, but chances are that the number will go even higher. The gearbox remains the same, buyers will have the choice option of either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic. Driver Selectable Steering Mode system will also be integrated in 2014 Hyundai Elantra, so drivers will have the option to select either comfort, normal, or sport mode, depending on its preference and situation on the road. Fuel economy will be improved also, mainly because of new stop-start technology that automatically depowers the engine while at idle.
2014 Hyundai Elantra Projected Fuel Economy
Fuel economy for the base 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine should remain the same, which means an estimated rating of 30/40/34 mpg city/highway/combined for the sedan with both transmissions. This should keep the Elantra among the fuel-saving leaders in the compact class. The coupe estimated fuel consumption ratings are just as high as the sedan showing 29/40/33 mpg city/highway/combined with the manual gearbox and 28/39/32 with automatic. The 2014 Hyundai Elantra hatchback GT model will also be rated like its precursor at 27/39/31 mpg city/highway/combined with the manual and 28/39/32 mpg with automatic. The new direct fuel-injected 2.0-liter engine will, most likely, be rated the same with both transmission choices of 27/37/32 mpg city/highway/combined.
