The 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport is packed with all the good things of a sporty compact car yet with a lesser tag price. The new model could be your new daily smooth ride.

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport is equipped with a 1.6-liter turbo-four that can produce 201-hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. The engine creates such power with minimal turbo lag, which suggests room for significant low- and mid-range grunt.

The new compact car sports the 2017 Elantra piece de resistance, which is the sport-tuned suspension integrated with a fully independent multilink rear setup. This suspension enables the new Elantra Sport to perform excellent handling despite the road's twist and turns.

With regard to transmission, the new Elantra Sport comes with a six-speed manual transmission with a light, easily-controlled clutch and a smooth shifter. This feature makes the model the best choice for drivers who will use a car with manual transmission for the first time.

However, buyers who do not prefer a manual transmission can opt for the brand's variant with seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. This gearbox works efficiently with the 1.6-liter turbo-four engine, resulting in a speedy shifting.

To complement this powerful engine and speed, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport comes with bigger front brake pads. The pads give extra stopping power with its huge 12-inch diameter.

In terms of the model's strong presence, the new Elantra Sport boasts of the sound that comes with it. The new model captures the attention of many when it creates an angry roar from its twin exhaust tubes. Fortunately, this angry noise from the outside does not sound as loud when inside the cabin.

The fully loaded 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport comes with a price tag of under $30,000 only. This price range is such a giveaway for a sporty compact car with the above mentioned powerful specs.

Meanwhile, Hyundai is also set to release a new hatchback option for those who are already bored with sedans. The 2018 Elantra GT Sport and standard Elantra GT hatchback are also set to come out as additional options.
