2018 Elantra Sport
2018 ELANTRA SPORT
Sport enhanced design cues are only the beginning. A 201 horsepower 1.6L turbocharged engine makes the Elantra Sport the most powerful Elantra yet, but power is nothing without precision. At the core is the SUPERSTRUCTURE™. Constructed of our Advanced High Strength Steel to deliver an ultra-rigid frame that allowed even greater precision when tuning the key suspension components, so that when we outfitted and sport-tuned the Elantra Sport with an independent multi-link rear suspension...you would feel it.
A CLASS ABOVE
The all-new 2018 Elantra Sport is a cutting-edge vehicle that has been designed to deliver a class-above experience to the compact car segment. Our engineers set out to achieve a new standard for rigidity with a chassis heavily composed of our Advanced High Strength Steel — forming a SUPERSTRUCTURE™. This innovative structure has led to a new level of ride comfort with smooth, precise handling, improved interior quietness and enhanced safety. Plus, the 1.6L Turbo GDI four-cylinder engine, multi-link rear suspension and an available D-cut heated steering wheel are just further examples of how the all-new Elantra Sport provides a driving experience that will exceed your every expectation. This is the H-Factor.
Constructed using a greater amount of Advanced High Strength Steel forged in our own steel mill,* the rigid composition of the SUPERSTRUCTURE™ enables more precise tuning of key suspension components. After all, creating a work of art requires a steady canvas. Experience improved cornering stability, precise handling performance and enhanced confidence at higher speeds. Legal
Enhanced interior soundproofing is another benefit of the SUPERSTRUCTURE™. A thoroughly-engineered structural design, increased steel rigidity, and extended application of soundproofing materials all help to keep outside noises where they belong. Whether you are navigating dense city traffic or cruising Canada’s wide-open highways, enjoy greatly reduced noise and vibration levels.
Over half of the SUPERSTRUCTURE™ is comprised of Advanced High Strength Steel for exceptional stiffness and strength. The body of the 2018 Elantra Sport also features extended application of structural adhesives to reinforce critical areas. In the event of a collision, the SUPERSTRUCTURE™ helps protect occupants inside the vehicle by absorbing harmful energy and redirecting it away from the passenger compartment.
A POWERFUL IMPRESSION
Thanks to its uncompromising power and impressive performance, there’s nothing quite like the exhilaration you will experience the moment you press down the accelerator pedal of the 2018 Elantra Sport.
1.6L TURBO GDI ENGINE
The standard 1.6-litre, Turbocharged-GDI four-cylinder engine delivers an impressive 201 horsepower along with 195-lb-ft of torque.
A sportier suspension along with larger front brakes has been tuned for even more responsive and precise handling capabilities.
6-SPEED MANUAL OR 7-SPEED DCT
Drivers may choose between a six-speed manual transmission or seven-speed Dual Clutch Transmission with paddle shifters.
MULTILINK REAR SUSPENSION
The Elantra Sport is exclusively outfitted with an independent multi-link rear suspension designed to elevate on-road dynamics and feel.
LARGE 18” WHEELS
One of the most noteworthy changes on the side profile of the Elantra Sport is the standard muscular looking 18” alloy wheels.
The standard HID headlights offer crisp, white illumination of the road ahead, reducing driver strain on longer trips and improving visibility.
AGGRESSIVE FRONT BUMPER
Spectators will be captivated by the most striking detail of its exterior — the redesigned front fascia, featuring a more aggressive front bumper and lip. Not only is the chrome grille now a distinctive black, it also now has a “Turbo” emblem on it.
Moving over to the sides, you will notice the skirts have been enlarged to give the side profile an edgier demeanor.
AGGRESSIVE REAR BUMPER
Around back, you’ll notice the aggressive rear bumper now has a new diffuser with twin-tip exhaust to further embrace the Elantra Sport’s performance-based nature.
LED TAIL LIGHTS
Although the taillights have the same shape as the all-new 2018 Elantra, they now feature a cluster of three LED strips on the inside, which have reverse lamps hidden at the bottom of the lens.
Enjoy the sun, the moon and the stars through the standard sunroof.
HEATED LEATHER SPORT FRONT SEATS
With standard heated leather sport bucket front seats, you’ll stay warm and comfy on even the coldest Canadian winter day.
HEATED LEATHER D-CUT STEERING WHEEL
The new flat-bottom D-Cut steering wheel contains red stitching and available paddle shifters. As a bonus, the heating on the steering wheel comes standard, making winter driving that much more comfortable.
RED STITCHING ACCENTS
For a more premium and sporty feel, the sport bucket seats have red stitching throughout the leather, as well as a “sport” emblem on the backrest.
The newly styled cluster has been enhanced to deliver a sportier look.
PERFORMANCE INSPIRED INTERIOR ACCENTS
Performance inspired interior accents surrounding the trims add a level of sophistication to the sporty design.
TRIM PIECES BLACKED OUT
The trim pieces around the shifter, climate controls and door handles have been blacked out, along with the headliner, giving the interior a premium, sporty feel.
HANDS-FREE SMART TRUNK
This standard feature makes loading and unloading your 2018 Elantra Sport more convenient. The hands-free smart trunk unlocks and partially opens automatically when it senses that the proximity key is within three feet for more than three seconds.
8” TOUCH-SCREEN NAVIGATION SYSTEM
Enjoy high-resolution maps along with easy-to-follow directions thanks to an available 8” touch-screen navigation system.

ANDROID AUTO + APPLE CAR PLAY
Stay connected with the entertainment you love and the information you need. Elantra Sport’s available Android Auto™ and Apple Car Play™ lets you interact with your smartphone’s maps, texts, music and more using voice commands, all while your eyes remain on the road, where they belong.
You can finally look forward to reversing thanks to the 2018 Elantra Sport’s Reverse camera. The dynamic guidelines move on the screen as you turn the steering wheel, showing the angle of the vehicle to help guide you.

PROTECTION FROM EVERY ANGLE
The Elantra Sport is outfitted with seven standard airbags including driver’s knee, front, side-impact and side-curtain (front and back) to give you added protection in case the unavoidable occurs.
ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL
The Electronic Stability control (ESC) system is designed to stabilize the vehicle during cornering maneuvers. ESC checks where you are steering and where the vehicle is actually going. It also applies the brakes to individual wheels and intervenes in the engine management system to stabilize the vehicle.
BLIND SPOT DETECTION WITH LANE CHANGE ASSIST
Capable of sensing an automobile approaching a driver’s blind spot, the standard Blind Spot Detection provides both an audible and visual alert to help reduce the potential for a collision. This feature works in conjunction with the Lane Change Assist, which measures the closing speed of traffic approaching in adjacent lanes to help determine if a lane change is safe
REAR-CROSS TRAFFIC ALERT
When reverse gear is selected, Rear-Cross Traffic Alert helps identify and warn the driver of vehicles approaching from the side, even before they come into view of the standard rearview camera.
