Hyundai Elantra Earns Cool Points With Parents AND Teens

2017 Hyundai Elantra

​Shopping for a new car for your teen driver? The Hyundai Elantra may just fit the bill! In fact, the 2017 model was recently named to U.S. News and World Report’s “Best New Cars for Teens” list, further highlighting the sedan’s family-friendly qualities, among other awesome features.

In order to qualify for the “Best New Cars for Teens” list, a vehicle must demonstrate excellent reliability and safety scores and be rated highly by top automotive critics. The availability of driver-assistance tech is also a requirement. Boasting several awards, including an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ rating, and offered with a full suite of advanced safety features, it’s no surprise that the Elantra was able to secure a place on this prestigious list.

“At Hyundai we pride ourselves on providing our customers with ‘better’ and the Elantra does just that with advanced safety technologies as well as Blue Link, which features technologies that allow parents to monitor their new drivers,” says Scott Margason, director, Hyundai Motor America. “We are happy to have secured a spot on this list by the reputable U.S. News & World Report by delivering the best combination of reliability, crash protection, and accident avoidance features.”

The best-selling compact car can be had with Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Change Assist, Lane Keep Assist, Smart Cruise Control and Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, all of which are sure to give parents peace of mind when their kids are out on the road. Blue Link, which is available on 2017 models and standard on 2018 models, also gives parents extra confidence, allowing them to monitor where the vehicle is and set limits on its speed and hours of use.

However, the Elantra isn’t just popular with parents. Stylish, tech-savvy and fun-to-drive, the best-selling compact car has plenty to offer young drivers. Standard on the Elantra SE Value Edition, the car is outfitted with a sunroof, keyless ignition/entry, LED daytime running lights, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a 7-inch touchscreen.
