2016-hyundai-elantra

Hyundai Elantra

One of the reasons why the 2016 Hyundai Elantra is thought to be an upscale compact is its interior, which is roomy enough to get it classified as a midsize car by EPA. The current generation Elantra made its first appearance way back in 2011 and is competing really well with the big players.

Overview and Trim Levels

It's available in the trim levels of the SE, Value Edition, Limited and Sport. All versions of Elantra feature cruise control, air conditioning, keyless entry and power mirrors, locks and windows. The Elantra Sport removes its power sunroof and leather seats in order to start at a lower price. The Elantra Value Edition is great in that it offers much more value at a really small price-raise. The added features include tilt-and-telescope steering wheel, side mirrors integrated with turn signals, aluminum sill plates, chrome beltline molding, heated front seats, proximity key with push button start, leather coverings for the shift knob and steering wheel, a power sunroof and different 16 inch alloy wheels.

Interior

As mentioned earlier, the interior of the 2016 Elantra is one of its greatest strengths. Although the car is compact, the EPA has classified it under midsize cars for its roomy interior. It owes to its roominess for ample space around front seats and more than sufficient legroom at the back. The interior, however, is not as spacious when it comes to the vertical space. Headroom can be a little tight even for not so tall passengers. The front seats are designed perfectly to allow aggressive or leisurely driving. Fold-down seats go well with the large trunk in the sedan. Apart from being roomy, the interior is also beautiful in that it features high quality materials and upholstery but there is also some low-end plastic on the switches and doors.

Power-trains and Performance

The engine featured by the 2016 Hyundai Elantra SE, Value Edition, and Limited is 1.8 liter and four cylinder, which delivers 145 horsepower and 130 pound feet of torque. SE makes use of six-speed manual transmission, however, six speed automatic is also available as an option. The six-speed automatic is standard on the more upscale versions of Value Edition and Limited.

When it comes to the Elantra Sport, things are slightly different and much powerful. The engine is a magnificent 2.0 liter four cylinder that produces 173 horsepower and 154 pound foot of torque. Automatic transmission is optional and the car accelerates from rest to 60 mph in 8.2 seconds.

Safety & Technology

The 2016 Hyundai Elantra features some safety provisions that are standard on all editions. These features include front and side airbags, stability and traction control, hill start assist and antilock disk brakes. Moreover, a rearview camera is standard on all the trims except the SE.

In addition to this, it also received a five star rating in government crash testing including both frontal and side impacts. All these factors make the 2016 Elantra one of the safest cars on road.

In case you are looking for a compact car with a spacious interior and solid fuel economy, the 2016 Hyundai Elantra is one of your best options. If you're anywhere near Adams, please visit Fuccillo Imports for the test drive.

2016-Mazda-6_2_lg

Mazda 6

The 2016 Mazda 6 is a favorite among automotive enthusiasts. One of its key highlights is its four cylinder, 184 horsepower engine that manages to give an impressive net torque of 185 pound feet square. Both the Touring and Sport models consist of 6-speed automatic or equivalent manual transmission.

Exterior

When it comes to exterior, the 2016 Mazda 6 seems to fit well in the running trend witnessed by mid-size sedans - the trend of transition from rather plain-ish looks to more stylish ones. Its aerodynamic bends and a remarkably beautiful front along with the 4-door feature give it a sporty look. The way its body is designed makes one realize that it's going to stay in the market for long. Some of the features that grant it the style it takes pride in include a long hood, the rear windshield, the rear-wheel haunches and a retouched grille. The LED headlights it garners offer evidence to the fact that Mazda 6 is a modern phenomenon.

Safety

After presenting an overview of its exterior and powerhouse, let's now focus on the ergonomic factors. Among them, safety naturally comes first. It feels as though Mazda 6 specially was designed to be the safest car on road. Each of its models garners antilock brakes, stability control and traction, front seat air bags, full length side air bags and head restraint. Another important feature that all its models share (except the Sport) is the rear view camera and automatic emergency accident notification. Other optional safety features include parking sensors, cross traffic rear monitoring and blind spot monitoring. Automatic cars can even make use of remote locking via Mazda's smartphone app called Mazda Mobile Start.

Interior and Special Features

After safety, the most important ergonomic factor is the driver's ease of control and level of comfort. Mazda's interior features seem to have been designed keeping in view just that. Despite a sloping roofline that gives the sedan a congested look from the outside, it actually allows more than sufficient headroom even for drivers taller than 6 feet. The front and back leg-room, again, is comfortably spacious. The same goes for the luggage space it offers. The shiny aluminum trim, leather upholstery with complementing stitches, the quality, fit and finish all give the 2016 Mazda 6 the best in the category of elegance.

However, the touch screen interface does not sit well with the highest quality interior it offers. The small screen and continuous glitches when working with Apple gadgets are the source of user disappointment.

If you are on the lookout for a sedan that is stylish, fuel efficient, safe and fun to drive, Mazda 6 is your best bet. Visit Fuccillo Imports if you are in Adams and want to test-drive this vehicle.

Mazda CX-3

The 2016 Mazda CX-3 subcompact crossover is one of the latest additions to Mazda's fleet. Preserving Mazda's unique brand of driving pleasure, it flaunts a sport-tuned suspension and employs smart weight saving measures to end up with a feather light i.e. 2952 pounds. With a 146 hp 2 liter 4 cylinder engine, the car can achieve 0 to 60 mph in mere 8.1 seconds. It is a six-speed automatic available in both front wheel and all wheel drive. Its cabin is another spectacular sight, adding to the grandeur the car boasts.

The car belongs to the latest generation of affordable crossover SUVs that are economical in price but include a list of features that were once only the trademark of much expensive cars.

Overview

CX-3 comes in 3 major trims: Sport, Touring and Grand Touring. Although Sport comes in 16 inches aluminum alloy wheels, the Grand Touring flaunts 18 inches wheels.

With a wheel base of 101.2 inches and a total height of 60.9 inches, this car is really compact when it comes to size. The overall length of the car is 168.3 inches and its width without mirrors is measured at 69.6 inches. The body contours are both aerodynamic and beautiful, giving the car a unique exterior. The luxurious Grand Touring even includes LED headlights with auto-leveling feature and LED fog lights.

Safety and Special Features

When it comes to safety, the 2016 Mazda CX-3 seems to be equipped with everything a car really needs. An Apple iOS or Android smartphone can remote start the Mazda CX-3 using Mazda's Mobile Start. However, remotely starting the car is only the beginning. Using Mazda's Mobile Start app, users can even start the car's defroster, panic alert the alarm, find the car's location and control the door locks. Also, there is an ABS system in place.

Interior

The passenger capacity of the 2016 Mazda CX-3 is 5 with an overall passenger volume of 87.6 ft3. The car has a reasonably spacious front headroom of 38 inches in spite of a cramped vibe one might get while casting a look from the outside. The Sport version comes with MAZDA CONNECT infotainment and remote-less key entry systems. It also has power windows with driver's one touch up/down feature. However, Touring version comes with far superior features including Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Leatherette-trimmed sport seats with complementing stitching, and Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring. It also features heated front seats and exterior side mirrors. The provisions of sunglasses holder and leather-wrapped steering wheel might seem small mentions but they do add a great deal to driver comfort, not to mention the interior look. The Grand Touring, however, tops the shelf by boasting a power moonroof with tilt feature. Moreover, there is an adaptive front-lighting system. It also includes 7-speaker Bose« surround sound system and i-ACTIVSENSE Package.

If you happen to be in Adams and are looking for a stylish compact SUV, you might want to visit or contact Fuccillo Imports to test drive the 2016 Mazda CX-3.
