Why Buy a New 2018 Hyundai Elantra?

There are plenty of reasons, but the top among them is that our automaker's flagship compact car offers features you may not find anywhere else. You can check out just a few here at Grayson Hyundai in Knoxville!

For one, 2018 Elantra makes heated rear seats available -- an option for your passengers' comfort that's not available in models like Toyota Corolla or Ford Focus. Secondly, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support offer prospects for taking your smartphone along for the ride, letting you connect it to the car's infotainment system and access and control it from the dash. You won't find Android phone compatibility in Toyota Corolla.

Further, the option to upgrade to an Infinity premium audio system, complete with Clari-Fi Music Restoration Technology, sets Elantra apart from models like Honda Civic and Ford Focus, in which the sound enhancements aren't available for your road trip. Further, the new Elantra is the only vehicle in the compact sedan class to offer both an optional hands-free smart trunk for easy access to its roomy cargo hold and an available Integrated Memory System to keep the driver's seat and exterior mirrors where you prefer them.

Hyundai Elantra is also the more safety-minded alternative. Blind-spot detection and rear cross-traffic alert are available to keep you aware of your surroundings, but they aren't in Toyota Corolla. It's easy for Elantra to stay on track with optional lane departure warning and lane keep assist, but competitors like Nissan Sentra don't offer these features. HID headlights with dynamic bending light are an option, ready to illuminate the path ahead, especially around corners, but this tech's not available on either Toyota Corolla or Honda Civic. Plus, as it stands alone, Elantra is rated a 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety when properly equipped. That's the industry safety authority's highest mark.

Of course, choose to purchase or lease a new Hyundai Elantra with our dealership here in Knoxville, and you'll gain some unique features to boot. For instance, Blue Link technology, with support complimentary for 3 years. Via either a smartphone app or in-vehicle controls, it lets you remotely lock your Elantra, start its engine, adjust climate controls, schedule service visits, and more, and the suite's compatible with many smartphones, smartwatches, Amazon Echo, and Google Home, among other devices. Let's not forget coverage by America's Best Warranty -- 10 years or 100,000 miles for your powertrain (5 years and 40,000 miles more than the warranties of either Toyota or Honda), 5 years or 60,000 miles of new vehicle limited coverage, and 5 years of 24-hour roadside assistance for unlimited miles.

But the best reasons to own a new 2018 Hyundai Elantra? Just ask your fellow drivers. According to consumer and expert reviews from across the spectrum on KBB.com, they hold it in high regard.
