At the LA Auto Show Hyundai has taken the covers off of its updated 2014 Elantra. The biggest news is that a new, more powerful 2.0-liter, direct-injected inline four-cylinder is now the standard engine in the Elantra sedan's all-new Sport trim level. This engine produces 173 horsepower and 154 pound-feet of torque and it appears that the Elantra Sport sedan will come solely with the automatic transmission. With the larger engine, fuel economy numbers do drop a little: all models powered by this engine receive EPA estimated ratings of 24 miles per gallon in the city. Highway estimates for this engine include 35 mpg for the Sport sedan. Sedan buyers looking for better fuel economy still have the carry over 1.8-liter engine with 145 hp, 130 lb-ft and EPA ratings of 28 mpg city/38 mpg highway.
