    [​IMG] No OEMs had their entire main car lineup sales up in November. Except one.

    2017 Hyundai Elantra - Pricing TBA and full EPA details TBA.

    The all-new follows the all-new Sonata with the hexagonal grille, wraparound lenses with available HID headlights with Dynamic Bending Lights and vertical LED DRLs.

    Underbody covers, an aerodynamic rear bumper bottom spoiler and rear decklid designed with an expanded trunk edge contribute to Elantra’s very competitive 0.27 coefficient of drag.

    Elantra features a more horizontal character line and available 17-inch alloys. All-new LED door handle puddle lamps, side mirror LED turn signal indicators and LED taillights move th bar up a notch from the current gen Elantra.

    Efficient Eco Drivetrain

    Along with the std. 2.0L I4, Hyundai will be offering an Eco trim with a completely new drivetrain. It starts with an atkinsonized 128 hp and 156 lb-ft. of torque direct injected and turbo charged 1.4L I4 mated to dry dual-clutch 7-speed AT. The Eco trim is projected to achieve an estimated 32/43/35 mpgUS city/highway rating. How is that for a non-hybrid/non-diesel all-new Elantra! :)

    While I never had a problem achieving the 40 mpgs in my 2011, I do know that the average Joe really had a problem making it there. I truly hope that they have set up the estimated rating for that individual so we don't see the questioning of the mpgs, again. Hyundai/Kia is one of those companies has truly impressed me since 2011 and I really look forward to their new innovations and design.

    Hi John:

    I hear you too!

    On a positive note, when we drove the 40/44 city/highway rated 2016 Sonata Hybrid SE a few months back it provided the following result.


    At 79.2 mpg actual, this is the third highest result on that LA/Torrance to North San Diego drive I have ever recorded and the 16 Sonata Hybrid is not the third highest EPA rating we have driven either.

    The aFCD was under reporting by the same amount as the tire diameter offset (2.1%) so those doing hand calcs with the short Trip A/B/Odometer miles will receive the displayed result.

    Hyundai appears not to be screwing around with this as it cost them dearly on the last go around.
