Silently introduced in Malaysia, the Hyundai Elantra Sport is now available for sale in three variants.
Three variants of the 2017 Hyundai Elantra compact sedan include the 1.6 Turbo Sport, the 2.0 MPI Dynamic and the 2.0 MPI Executive. All are ready for booking in Malaysia with estimated price of ₱ 1,566,721, ₱ 1,450,668 and ₱ 1,392,641 respectively.

At first, we will discuss the 1.6 Turbo Sport premium variant. Outside, the Elantra 1.6 Turbo Sport is equipped with unique headlights and distinguished 17-inch alloy wheels to differentiate itself from the 2.0 variants. Besides, details such as the front grille, boot lid and ear diffuser are all attached “Sport” badging.

As the name suggests, the 1.6 Turbo Sport is gifted with a 1.6-liter T-GDi turbocharged petrol engine delivering 204hp at 6,000 rpm and 265 Nm of torque between 1,500-4,500 rpm.

As for the 2.0 MPI trim levels, the exterior design is not much different from the outgoing model.

In the cockpit, the Executive and Dynamic duo get the same dashboard architecture as the 1.6 Turbo Sport but more restraint on the Turbo Sport’s visual flair. In addition, a round steering wheel is furnished as standard with aluminum-look trim and rubber pedal sets, instead of the carbon-fiber look trim and metal pedal items in the Turbo.
