The 2017 Hyundai Elantra recently received an incredible award from the Greater Atlanta Automotive Media Association (GAAMA): the Biggest Bang for the Buck Award.

This is a great honor for Hyundai and the Elantra, especially considering it competed in the highly saturated midsize sedan category. Its win comes at no surprise, though, as the Hyundai Elantra has many outstanding features that helped it secure this prestigious title, including Active Eco.

Hyundai Elantra’s Active Eco Makes a Difference

According to GAAMA, the Hyundai Elantra was “the most deserving vehicle for the Biggest Bang for the Buck Award for its overall value that includes segment-first features, class-leading safety technologies and improved efficiency.” Part of its improved efficiency is due to the effective Active Eco feature.

This feature smooths out throttle responses in the Hyundai Elantra creating a smarter acceleration and better fuel economy. With this feature turned on, drivers can be assured that they are getting maximum mileage out of each tank of gas they put in their car.

What Hyundai Elantra’s Active Eco Means For You

Everyone knows stop-and-go traffic drains your gas tank, but the Hyundai Elantra’s Active Eco combats this. According to Hyundai, “The Active Eco button allows your vehicle to perform at the optimal level to receive maximum fuel efficiency by controlling the vehicle’s shifting patterns.”

No longer will drivers have to grit their teeth at the thought of the amount of gas being wasted during their commute home, but can be confident that Active Eco is efficiently utilizing each gallon.

If you’re entering the highway or are in another situation that might call for a little more force behind the gas pedal, then never fear. Active Eco can easily be turned off momentarily by hitting the button to the left of the steering wheel. Once you’ve gotten past the on-ramp, you can quickly turn Active Eco back on and continue to enjoy its gas-saving benefits.
