See How 2018 Hyundai Elantra is Already Leading the Way for the Greener Vehicles of the Future

As eco-friendly goals go, that of Hyundai is one of the loftier: a fuel-efficiency average of approximately 54.5 mpg fleet-wide by the year 2025. It's not unattainable, either. Our automaker's Eco-Technology Research Institute's crack team of scientists is already undertaking studies, developing new technologies, and accelerating a green energy initiative or two, in the interest of both developing more resourceful ways to deliver power and lower emissions and keeping it all sustainable. Hyundai is even spearheading a Green Move initiative, working with communities around the world to help make the "Pale Blue Dot" a little brighter, doing everything from implementing recycling programs and planting new forests to helping restore habitats, educating on green subjects, and more.

But not every environmentally conscious advancement is necessarily a new hybrid or electric vehicle. You can see the Hyundai dedication to economy in how even compact gas-engine sedans like the new 2018 Hyundai Elantra go the extra mile.

Take its seven-speed EcoShift® transmission, for example, a standard feature in the new Elantra Eco and an optional one in Elantra Sport. It's a dual-clutch versus manual or automatic, so there's neither a clunk from a torque converter nor a clutch pedal to fumble with while changing gears. That means quicker, more seamless upshifts, as no disconnection occurs to make them happen. Factor in SHIFTRONIC® tech, which cleverly adapts to your driving habits, and the result is excellent EPA-estimated fuel economy -- up to 32 city mpg, 40 highway mpg, and 35 mpg combined. Even the car's six-speed manual and Active Eco system-equipped auto transmissions sip gas. The former makes possible up to 26 mpg, 36 mpg, and 29 mpg respectively, while the latter offers up to 29 mpg, 38 mpg, and 33 mpg, both according to EPA estimates. There's even a smart Eco mode in trims from Elantra SE and SEL to Value Edition and Limited to help out with going the distance.

Of course, "America's Best Warranty" helps keeps the latest Elantra on the road for the long haul, too. Hyundai incorporates in it a 5-year, 60,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty, 10 years or 100,000 miles of limited powertrain coverage, and 5 years of 24-hour roadside assistance for unlimited mileage -- plenty of peace of mind that you'll get the most from your investment, and something that goes a long way toward a greener future.
