Hyundai Elantra gets new 'Value Edition' trim for 2016

The new package bundles a sunroof, leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated seats, push-button start and alloy wheels

Hyundai has added a new trim option for its 2016 Elantra, along with new standard equipment for existing packages.

The new Value Edition bundles the model's most popular options including a sunroof, leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated seats, push-button start and 16-inch alloy wheels, among other upgrades. It only costs $550 more than the base price, but is claimed to represent a $1,000 savings compared to adding each item individually.

The higher-end Elantra Limited now ships with a proximity key for push-button start, along with dual automatic climate control, as part of its standard options. The package is said to bring a $600 value savings.

The Sport trim is now available with cloth seats, reducing the entry price by removing the standard leather seats and power sunroof.

The Korean automaker is set to unveil its next-generation Elantra later this year, with an unveiling scheduled for the Los Angeles auto show. Details remain scarce, but unconfirmed reports suggest the revamped sedan will be heavily inspired by the 2016 Elantra GT hatchback.

In the meantime, the 2016 Elantra keeps its entry price of $18,075 (including $825 freight).
