With a highly efficient 4-cylinder engine matched with an upgraded 6-speed automatic transmission that’s more responsive than ever, the 2018 Hyundai Elantra leads the pack when it comes to gas mileage.

Now, thanks to Hyundai’s Drive Mode Integrated Control System, standard on every trim, you are more in control of your Elantra’s fuel efficiency and driving dynamics than ever before. Thanks to three distinct driving modes, you can change the characteristics of your car to match your driving style for any situation.

Choose Your Destiny with Drive Mode Integrated Control System

The Drive Mode button is located on your middle console, in front of the shift knob. Your Elantra is automatically in “Normal” mode once the car starts. Simply press the button once for “Eco” mode and one more time for “Sport”. The mode chosen will show in your instrument cluster.

Normal mode provides the typical driving environment you have come to expect from Hyundai.

Sport mode turns your Elantra into a performance machine. The throttle response increases, helping you to accelerate more quickly. The transmission will shift at higher RPMs. And the steering becomes tighter, giving you better handling and control at higher speeds.

Eco mode is possibly the most popular driving mode on the Elantra, as it gives your car maximum fuel efficiency. Your acceleration will be slower but smoother, and your steering will be gentler. The air conditioning performance will be lowered as well, to fully maximize and conserve fuel.

Using Eco Mode, your Elantra will enjoy up to 40 mpg on the highway.

The great thing about these driving modes is you can switch them any time, even when the car is motion. On a long road trip, you can cruise along in Eco mode, switch to Normal when climbing a hill, and flip over to Sport and enjoy a straightaway.
