Nobody can say no to a good deal. But when it comes to brand spanking new cars, a good deal can mean many things. Down at Hyundai, the automaker shoehorned lots of goodies as standard in the Elantra, providing $1,215 in value savings. Not bad, huh?
Introduced for the 2017 model year, the Value Edition Elantra slots above the entry-level SE, though below the fuel-sipping Eco trim level. Now on sale from $20,250 before destination and other charges, this version of the Hyundai Elantra ticks all the right boxes for those customers in the market for a cheap sedan that doesn’t make you feel cheap for buying it.

“It’s critically important to give our customers a wide variety of options so there’s an Elantra to meet their needs” explains Mike Evanoff, Product Planning Manager at Hyundai Motor America. “The Value Edition lands at a real sweet spot on the spectrum of amenities and price tag,” he concluded, and I couldn’t agree more. The question is, what do you get for $20,250?

Well, you get four wheels and leather on the steering wheel, for a start. Leather can also be found on the shifter, whereas the rest of the cabin boasts a tilt/slide sunroof, heated front seats, lumbar adjustment for the driver’s seat, 7-inch Display Audio infotainment with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, dual automatic temperature control, keyless entry, and push-button start. In addition to that, HomeLink also comes as standard.

The Value Edition is propelled by a 2.0-liter inline-4 with 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. Drive goes to the front axle via a 6-speed automatic transmission that also helps with fuel economy: 28 mpg city, 37 mpg highway, and 32 mpg combined. When all is said and done, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Value Edition is undoubtedly worthy of its name.

The 2017 model years also brings more standard kit for the rest of the Elantra lineup. The SE now includes Bluetooth connectivity and cruise control, plus buttons on the steering wheel. The Limited, meanwhile, boasts high-intensity discharge headlights with Dynamic Bending Light technology.
