India-bound 2017 Hyundai Elantra gets a more powerful Sport version

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra has just received a more powerful Sport version in its home turf, South Korea. Sold as the Avante Sport locally, this latest addition to the latest-gen Elantra range gets a 204bhp petrol engine.  

As a sportier derivative to the regular model, the Avante Sport sits slightly lower to the ground by around 5mm for a more streamlined stance. As for the design changes, up front Hyundai has redesigned the headlights and the grille, besides adding a Turbo badge. The Sport version also gets 18-inch wheels, different side skirts and revised LED taillights and rear bumper.

The Sport version is all about the upgraded power courtesy the 1.6-litre turbocharged, four-cylinder engine which develops 204bhp of power and a healthy 265Nm of torque. Hyundai is offering a choice of 6-speed manual and 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox for the Avante Sport. Lastly, the brand is also offering different springs and shocks and upgraded stabilizer bars as optional extras.

Other than South Korea, the Elantra Sport will be sold in the US where it will debut at the SEMA show in November. Hyundai India, meanwhile, will make do with the regular 2017 Elantra for the Indian market which will is likely to get 1.8-litre and 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engines respectively.
