Hyundai to launch production of redesigned 2017 Elantra in Alabama

LOS ANGELES — Hyundai showed off the redesigned 2017 Elantra sedan at the Los Angeles Auto Show on Wednesday, with the automaker giving the Alabama-made vehicle a bolder aerodynamic design, more interior space and other significant new features.

The sixth-generation Elantra – one of Hyundai’s best-selling models – will arrive in dealer showrooms early next year. Hyundai produced nearly 400,000 Elantra and Sonata sedans in 2014 at its Montgomery assembly facility, where it has invested around $1.8 billion.

The Elantra’s new, streamlined design features a hexagonal grille and front-wheel air curtains that improve air flow, boosting fuel efficiency. It’s also getting two new engine options for enhanced fuel economy, along with new safety features, better ride quality and reduced noise.
