Shortly after announcing a new Value Edition for its entry-level Accent, Hyundai has introduced a similar model in its compact Elantra family which was fully redesigned for 2017. Based on the Elantra SE and opening at $21,085, the automaker says the additional features found on the 2017 Elantra Value Edition reflect a $1,215 savings over what they’d cost if purchased separately. Hyundai’s Product Planning Manager, Mike Evanoff feels the comprehensive upgrade bundle positions the Value Edition “at a real sweet spot on the spectrum of amenities and price tag.”
