Guess what the Hyundai Elantra Value Edition is all about

The Value Edition saves buyers $1,215 over a comparably equipped Elantra in a different trim.

Hyundai's Value Edition trim is all about offering fancier treatments in a more affordable package. There was a Value Edition for the previous generation Elantra, and now, there's one based on the new model.

I was going to say, "It looks very value-y," but then I realized I have no idea what that means.

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra Value Edition adds a bunch of features that are usually found on more expensive Elantra trims. This one adds LED running lights, a hands-free Smart Trunk, a sunroof, heated seats, a power driver's seat, dual-zone climate control, leather-wrapped interior bits and a 7-inch Display Audio infotainment system with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also adds safety features, including blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and lane-change assist.

Sadly, it's only available with Hyundai's six-speed automatic -- you need to buy the SE or Sport to get access to the six-speed manual. The engine, a 147-horsepower I4, remains the same as the SE and Limited trims.

The whole kit and caboodle will set buyers back $20,250, which Hyundai claims is a $1,215 savings over non-Value models with similar equipment. It's $3,100 more expensive than the base Elantra SE, but it's $1,400 cheaper than the hot-to-trot Elantra Sport.

Hyundai also added a bit more value to other Elantra models, as well. New standard equipment includes Bluetooth wireless connectivity and cruise control. High-end Elantra Limited trims now receive standard HID headlights with dynamic bending.

No matter the trim, the Elantra's interior is sensible and easy to get used to.
