200 HP Hyundai Elantra Sport Arriving Later This Year

Hyundai will unveil its rival to the Honda Civic Si at this year’s SEMA Show, in the form of the Elantra Sport.

Based on the recently updated sedan, the Elantra Sport will arrive as a 2017 model later this year and be powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder.

All up, Edmunds suggests it’ll pump out 200 hp, a full 53 hp more than the 2.0-liter of the entry-level Elantra musters up.

Beyond the boost in power, the Sport variant is expected to receive a set of 18-inch wheels, retuned front and rear suspension and beefed up brakes.

Discussing the car, Hyundai Motor America chief executive Dave Zuchowski said: “We have not really had a (Honda Civic) Si type of product before. We have had Sport models among the Elantras, but this is a completely different vehicle.”

Brandon Ramirez, the company’s manager of product planning, added that the Hyundai Elantra Sport will receive some unique styling touches to distinguish it from lesser variants.
