Before you leave on your vacation, it helps to make a list of things that you need to do before you leave. A simple “To Do” list keeps you organised and makes sure that you do not forget anything.

Vacation To Do List
• Stop the mail
• Stop the paper

• Unplug electrical devices like televisions and computers
• Get a pet sitter for the pets
• Test drive the 2017 Hyundai Elantra

You may find that the Hyundai Elantra is the perfect vacation vehicle for your family.

Sophisticated Exterior

In addition to fuel efficiency, the 2017 Elantra has been redesigned to make it more competitive in the compact sedan class.

It starts with the exterior. Rather than the previous years’ bold styling, the All New Elantra is sporting a more sophisticated and subdued appearance. It was given a wider grille and headlamps that were pressed to the edges. It still has its accent lines along the hood and fenders, but they are subtle rather than defined.

Comfort Inside

elantra_int_July16All of the exterior redesigning has opened up more room on the inside. You now have more legroom in the front seat, which makes it easier for the driver to stretch out and lessen leg fatigue. There has been a slight gain in shoulder room, as well.

The big winner in the redesign was for those who ride in the back seat. Now, they have a little more room, and that makes a lot of difference when you are travelling.

Not only is there more room, Hyundai added easy-to-read controls and larger control buttons for ease of use. This makes it easy to change the radio station or make climate adjustments as you drive.

Those controls take charge of a number of new technological additions that are available within three different trim packages. From touchscreens to USB ports, there is a package that will keep you and your passengers entertained while riding in the car.

Money Saving Power

Going on vacation is much more fun when you have a little extra to spend for one more tourist attraction. The 2017 Elantra can help you have more money to spend. It is equipped with a 2.0 litre MPI Atkinson DOHC normally aspirated inline 4-cyclider engine that offers 9.1L/100km in the city and 6.6L/100km on the highway.

The base model comes with a 6-speed manual transmission with an optional 6-speed automatic. The 6-speed automatic is standard in the Limited models.


Of course, safety is always a priority with Hyundai, and the Elantra is loaded with both passive and restraint safety equipment. From side air bags to knee air bags for the driver, there are seven airbags in all. It comes with ABS brakes and Electronic Brake Force Distribution that makes for even and smooth braking that keep the wheels from sliding during a hard brake.

Vehicle Stability Management and Electronic Stability Control keep your tires solidly connected to the pavement.

In all, these features make the All New Elantra an excellent choice for a vacation sedan. Stop by and test-drive the newest Elantra today.
