What are the main differences of the 2017 Hyundai Elantra trims?
The Elantra has been a major sales success story for Hyundai since it was first released, and with the 2017 model, there are several different trim levels to choose from.
These new Elantra trims are coming thick and fast, with the Sport trim and the new Value Edition among the latest choices.
Having different Hyundai Elantra models to choose from is great, but deciding which one is right for you can be a little more difficult.
