Model returns 32 mpg city, 40 mpg highway, and 35 mpg combined.
Set to become the most fuel-efficient Elantra, the model features a stylish exterior with projector beam headlights, LED daytime running lights, and 15-inch alloy wheels.
The interior comes nicely equipped with heated front seats, a dual-zone automatic climate control system, and a seven-inch Display Audio system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. Drivers will also find a leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel, power windows / locks, and a push-button ignition. Other highlights include a split folding rear seat, Bluetooth connectivity, and a 3.5-inch TFT display in the instrument cluster.
Power is provided by a turbocharged 1.4-liter GDI four-cylinder engine that produces 128 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed EcoShift Dual Clutch Transmission which enables the car to return 32 miles per gallon city, 40 mpg highway, and 35 mpg combined.
The Elantra Eco is less powerful than the standard model which features a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 147 hp and 132 lb-ft of torque. However, it is slightly more fuel-efficient as standard Elantra only returns up to 29 mpg city, 38 mpg highway, 33 combined.
