Hyundai has pulled the wraps off its most fuel efficient Elantra sedan ever with an EPA estimated 40mpg on the highway and 32mpg in the city. The car is rated for 35mpg combined. Hyundai says that owners of the Elantra Eco will spend only $900 in fuel per year for an average amount of driving. While the car saves on fuel at the pump, it will also save on monthly payments each month.
The starting price for the 2017 Hyundai Eco is $20,650. Power for the car comes from a 1.4L turbo GDI 4-cylinder paired with a 7-speed EcoShift dual clutch transmission with Shiftronic. The purchase price Hyundai calls out doesn’t include the $835 freight charge. The car gets LED daytime running lights, blind spot detection with rear cross traffic alert and lane change assist.
The car also gets push button start, heated front seats, power windows, leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and lots more standard equipment. That 1.4L engine makes 128hp and 156 lb-ft of torque. Hyundai has packed both impressive standard features and fuel economy into the Elantra Eco at a low starting price.
