2018 Elantra Sport
Underneath the hood of AJAC’s 2017 Best New Sports/Performance car is a powerful 1.6L turbocharged engine delivering 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. But power is nothing without precision. At the core is the SUPERSTRUCTURE™. Constructed of our Advanced High Strength Steel to deliver an ultra-rigid frame that allowed even greater precision when tuning the key suspension components, so that when we outfitted and sport-tuned the Elantra Sport with an independent multi-link rear suspension, you would feel it.
Aggressive Front Grille
The unique front bumper design sets the tone with sharp body lines that frame an aggressive black and chrome front grille. An exclusive “Turbo” badge makes a bold statement. Not only will you see a new grille, but there are new headlight and tail light designs that offer a beautiful outline which features LED technology to achieve a brighter beam and increased visibility.

At the core of the Elantra is the SUPERSTRUCTURE™, a state-of-the-art platform that is the foundation of the Elantra lineup. Over half of the SUPERSTRUCTURE™ is comprised of Hyundai’s Advanced High Strength Steel for exceptional stiffness and strength of the frame. In the event of a collision, the SUPERSTRUCTURE™ helps protect occupants inside the vehicle by absorbing harmful energy and redirecting it away from the passenger compartment.
Blind Spot Detection With Lane Change Assist
Capable of sensing an automobile approaching a drivers’ blind spot, the standard Blind Spot Detection provides both an audible and visual alert to help reduce the potential for a collision. This features works with the Lane Change Assist, which measures the closing speed of traffic approaching in adjacent lanes, to help determine if a lane change is safe.
