The 2017 Hyundai Elantra was officially introduced last year during the Los Angeles Auto Show in November and now the automaker has revealed the pricing details for the US-spec version.

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra will hit dealerships starting at 17,150, which is 100 bucks lower than its predecessor – though if you’ll factor in the destination fee you’ll see the entry-level SE is actually $17,985. The Elantra comes packing an all-new naturally-aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine delivering 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque and has been mated to a six speed manual transmission sending power to the front wheels. The SE trim can also be equipped with the six-speed automatic transmission from $18,150, while the automatic-only Limited starts at $22,350. The SE and Limited versions will reach dealer lots this spring and later on they will also be followed by the Eco version. This one would make use of a new turbocharged 1.4-liter churning out 128 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque linked to a dual-clutch, seven-speed transmission.

Available for the base 2017 Elantra SE are the Popular Equipment pack which ads for $800 amenities such as cruise control, rearview camera, and a seven-inch Display Audio system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. Add the Tech package ($1,300) and the owner will receive LED daytime running lights, heated front seats, cruise control, rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, hands-free smart trunk, and Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. The Elantra Limited comes standard with leather upholstery and LED taillights. For this one there’s the optional Tech pack for $2,500 boasting an eight-inch display for the infotainment system, a sunroof, an updated audio system and navigation. The Ultimate version comes with memory seats, HID headlights, smart cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and lane-keeping assist for $1,900.
