The 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport makes a good sedan better

With more power, a stiffer ride and slightly more aggressive looks, the Elantra Sport makes a solid case for itself.

Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

Under the hood lies a 201-horsepower, 195-pound-foot I4 engine, mated to the buyer's choice of a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch.

The Elantra Sport also features a multi-link rear suspension, where the "normal" Elantra makes do with a torsion bar setup.

The muffler is different, spring and damper rates are up and the front brakes are larger.

Despite the additional power, there's no torque steer to be found.

Even with the sportier suspension, the Elantra Sport is still a comfortable ride on the road.
