2018 Hyundai Elantra

Introducing the 2018 Hyundai Elantra

One of the best metrics to consider when you're shopping for a new vehicle is owner loyalty. As you would expect, happy owners are loyal owners. When you find a car that you like and it never lets you down, why would you switch to anything else? In our experience, the Elantra is exactly that type of car. In fact, as a brand, Hyundai has been #1 in owner loyalty for several years in a row. The Elantra is a major part of that statistic and there are several reasons why.

First, the Elantra is a fun car that's packed with great features. Second, like all Hyundai models, the 2018 Elantra comes with America's Best Warranty (10-year / 100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty). Last, but not least, it's an incredibly well-built product that also happens to be very affordable. That's a claim you may hear from many automotive manufacturers but the 2018 Hyundai Elantra is one of the only models that actually lives up to the hype. Let's take a closer look so you can see for yourself.

Features and Amenities

The 2018 Elantra is a smart, fun car that is jam-packed with great features and amenities. With available heated seats in the front and back, you can make sure Maine's winter chill doesn't make life unbearable for you or your passengers. You can also take advantage of the best hands-free features available in any automotive interface with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. Tired of carrying keys with you everywhere? Simply connect your car via Blue Link to your smartwatch and you can lock and unlock your doors, as well as start your car quickly and easily.

Honestly, we're only scratching the surface here; the list of features goes on and on:

  • Available Navigation System
  • Available Blu Link Telematics System
  • Smartphone/USB and auxiliary input jacks
  • Available 7-inch display audio system with high-resolution touchscreen

America's Best Warranty

If you've heard or seen a Hyundai commercial over the last five years, you've heard a familiar tagline, America's Best Warranty. Why is it America's best? Because every Hyundai vehicle comes with a 10-year, 100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty. No other manufacturer comes close to that, with most of them offering 5 years or 60,000 miles. Every Hyundai vehicle also comes with five years of roadside assistance, a 7-year, unlimited-miles, anti-perforation warranty, and a lifetime warranty on hybrid batteries for applicable vehicles. All of these programs work together to provide a comprehensive safety net that practically guarantees a low cost of ownership and the peace of mind that comes from knowing Hyundai has you covered. We call it Hyundai Assurance because it represents more than just a series of warranties, it represents peace of mind.

  • Hyundai - 10 years, 100,000 miles
  • Lexus - 6 years, 70,000 miles
  • Toyota - 5 years, 60,000 miles
  • Honda - 5 years, 60,000 miles
  • Nissan - 5 years, 60,000 miles

Design and Style

When you're talking about design, whether you're trying to build a car, an appliance, a building or anything else, you're likely considering two things: form and function. Form is the art of making things look good, and function deals with making sure they serve their intended purpose. The design team at Hyundai certainly had both in mind when they built this eye-catching, but solidly dependable, sedan. It's classy without being showy, sturdy yet sleek, and it packs almost every safety feature, creature comfort, and amenity you can think of. When you total everything together, you would expect to have a car that costs three times as much, but the Elantra does it all without breaking the bank. Choose the trim that best suits your lifestyle with SE, SEL, Value, ECO, Sport or Limited trims available.

  • Available blind spot detection
  • Available forward collision warning
  • Available hands-free smart truck
  • Available automatic headlight control

It's easy to see why owner loyalty is such a big selling point for this car. When an Elantra owner drives on to the lot, we know they're headed to see all of the shiny, new Elantras we have in stock. Like a tried and true companion that never lets you down, you know your vehicle will be there for you through thick and thin, in all types of weather.
