A few months back I test drove the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Eco for a week. When the cute and compact car pulled up I was all smiles. From its red exterior to the sleek body, I was ready to hop in and start driving! Once inside I was equally impressed with the cream interior, huge touchscreen and spacious backseat.

During my time with the car I enjoyed being able listen to my morning podcasts on the way to work, as well as my many iTunes playlists. Like the other cars I’ve recently tested, the Hyundai Elantra Eco was equipped with Apple CarPlay. I love this feature and I’m glad to see that it’s becoming the norm for so many of the newer car models. Receiving and sending messages while driving was extremely safe and hassle free, thanks to Apply CarPlay. Check out some of the other feature below!
– Leather Steering Wheel with Audio & Cruise Control
– Front, Front Side Impact & Side Curtain Airbags
– Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System
– Touchscreen Display Audio System
– Android Auto & Apple CarPlay
– Hands-free Smart Trunk
– Blind Spot Detection
– Heated Front Seats
– Rear-view Camera
– SiriusXM Radio
I also made a Target run while test driving the car. I was able to pack in quite a bit, plus a few extra goodies from the grocery store, thanks to the spacious trunk! The rear-view camera came in handy as well while maneuvering in and out of the parking lot(s). The Hyundai Elantra Eco also provided plenty of space to hold drinks, as well as your cellphone while driving. I don’t like holding my phone in my lap while driving or having to put it in the passengers seat next to me. Having a specific area to place my phone and drinks was very convenient.
So tell me, have you ever driven the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Eco? After reading the review, what do you think? Let me know!
Thanks for reading and commenting. Until next time, be blessed and stay safe…XO!
