We’ve already seen the regular—SE and Limited—versions of the redesigned 2017 Hyundai Elantra, as well as the new Sport model, and now Hyundai is bringing out the fuel-economy champ, the Elantra Eco. For the most-economical Elantra, one will pay more than for the very cheapest version, but less than the sticker on most the other versions.

While the SE and Limited have a 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine rated at 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque—and the Sport gets a 1.6-liter turbocharged four—the Eco’s exclusive engine is 1.4-liter direct-injected turbo four, good for 128 horsepower and 156 lb-ft of torque. As in the Sport, the only transmission for the Eco is a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. The combo delivers EPA ratings of 32 mpg city, 40 mph highway—making it the only Elantra to hit the 40-mpg mark. (The next-most-economical version is the SE with its optional six-speed automatic, which is rated at 29/38.)

The Eco stickers for $21,485, which puts it between the SE (which is $17,985 for the manual, $18,985 with the automatic) and the Limited (which starts at $23,185). Besides the 1.4-liter turbo and seven-speed automatic, the Eco’s standard equipment list includes heated seats, keyless entry and pushbutton ignition, LED daytime running lights, blind-spot warning, and rear cross-traffic detection, among items. That makes the Eco similarly equipped to the SE with the Popular Equipment Package and the Tech Package. An SE with those options lists at $21,085—which means a $400 premium for the Eco, or $400 to get 40.
