Hyundai updates make 2018 models tough to beat

As we inch closer to 2018, Jenkins Hyundai of Leesburg is getting excited about our vehicle lineup and the updates we can show you.

The Accent gets a larger wheelbase and a new 1.6-liter inline four-cylinder engine that has an impressive 130 horsepower and 119 pound-feet of torque on its slender frame. The Elantra GT sports a 2.0-liter engine with a six-speed manual transmission and an available automatic. The Ionique plug-in hybrid joins the current electric and hybrid options from last year.

One of the brightest stars of 2018 should be the Kona, Hyundai's new subcompact crossover. The hatchback style vehicle will have a 2.0-liter four-cylinder and an optional 1.6-liter turbo what produces 175 horsepower along with a fully electric version with a range of more than 200 miles on a single charge.

Expect mechanical changes to the Sonata that includes recalibrated steering and suspension upgrades that improve the handling. Esthetic changes include a new hood, front fender, and truck along with headlights, taillights, and bumpers all redesigned.

Look for other changes like a new engine in the Velostar that can make up to 250 horsepower with a turbo 2.0-liter engine and minor changes to the Tucson.
