Thank you Drive Shop and Hyundai for giving me an opportunity to test drive this 2017 Elantra Limited.
You may recall last month hubby and I attended the Wilmington High School Class of 1974 White Party and you may also remember seeing these pictures either on my Facebook page or from this previous post.
However, what you did not see, was the “Chariot” in which we rode in to attend this gala. It was late in the evening so I didn’t take any pictures but as you can see, it was a beautiful 2017 Hyundai Elantra Limited. Sunday evening we decided to drive down to Silver Lake in Middletown to watch the sun set.
I have always loved the smooth ride of a Hyundai and the color Phantom Black reminded me of my own 2005 Hyundai Sonata which I still miss to this day.
However, back then these new vehicles didn’t have a lot of bells and whistles which now come as standard features. There were many features that I simply loved and very few which I didn’t like but below is a list of my top five favorites.
Toni’s Top 5 Favs
- Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System
- Duel Automatic Temperature Control
- Proximity Key with Push Button Start and Hands-free Smart Trunk
- Power Driver’s Seat with Lumbar Support
- Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-traffic Alert
However, there were two features that I think needed to be included :
- Power outlets/USB Charger should be standard the rear seat console
- Passenger Seat should be power controlled
Otherwise, with the 32 MPG fuel economy it is definitely great vehicle for my daily commute as well as for tooling around town. The standard and added features on this model was listed at a total MSRP of $27,710.00.
Both hubby and I enjoyed driving the all new Hyundai 2017 Elantra Limited around town and into the city of Wilmington.
Also, as an “old married couple” who recently celebrated their 26th Wedding Anniversary, we also liked just sitting inside, listening to Jazz with the sunroof open watching the sun set over Silver Lake. #boomers
