Very short production run considering they were only on sale from January-ish until late July. 18's are hitting now, so they've been in production for a month or two.Question is, will they increase production numbers for 2018? Very difficult car to get for a lot of buyers out there for the 2017 run.
Im kinda hoping it stays low volume. I've enjoyed the fact that I've only seen another 3 (including one at the dealership) other Sports since I started car shopping in January. I like feeling like Im rare Adds to the whole subtle speed that no one expects me to have haha.Yes I'm kind of surprised they made the sunroof stock on the base model. For those that hate sunroofs, too bad according to Hyundai apparently. I'm sure it was a production/cost saving decision. Does Hyundai break down their production numbers in detail? I haven't found anything yet. Only 450 plus or so 2017's both DCT and manuals left if you go by cars.com. That's not a lot. I'm guessing not even 3000 were made during this 2017 run.
Although early, the 2018's are just trickling out now. I'm hoping we'll see a full ramp up of production in a few months as 2018's are hitting the dealers now way earlier than last year when the car was first released.
No doubt a low volume car.
I understand. I'm staying in the N. Virginia area for the time being and one of my neighbors had a Grey base Sport. I've never seen another one on the road but drove by his daily. For whatever reason the neighbor either left or sold his. I don't see it any longer. Nor any others on the road. Rare car indeed if you don't see them in this populated area.Im kinda hoping it stays low volume.

$885 Delivery Fee is included. The extra $500 incentive just showed up 1 Sep - got lucky and able to use it in time. Here are some pix.Excellent price for a 2018! Congrats! Rebates really pushed it down. I wouldn't worry too much about the $937 as half is $499 doc fee. Dealers normally don't waive those. So the dealer got $400 in extras from you. Seems like a nice easy purchase, so let them have a little. IF the deal is a pain in the arse, then I'd say go hard about the bottom price. But that's not the case with your purchase.
Looks like the 2018's are missing $1000 from Hyundai and $500 from financing compared to the 2017's. No shocker there as they just came out. It will increase to $2000 rebate and $750 off for Hyundai financing at some point. Just have to wait it out.
As others have said, hopefully there will be more 2018's out there. This car has been difficult to find for a lot of us for 2017 models. I was just in Des Moines, IA and there wasn't a single Sport in the area. For either year. Pretty bad Hyundai. Pretty bad.
PS. Didn't know they had a $500 off Labor Day rebate. Anyone know how long this will last? And is it available for everyone? No restrictions?
Lastly, was the $850 delivery price included in your pricing? I notice the N. Virginia dealers add it back into their online pricing. Go 50 miles away and it's included. Pretty lame to tack it on and would for sure be a deal breaker for me. About as bad as their $699 doc fees in the same area.
Glad the delivery fee was included. I'm going round and round in the DC area and it's the same BS for all dealers. Here's a decent online quote. Please note it doesn't mean squat until I walk into the dealership:$885 Delivery Fee is included. The extra $500 incentive just showed up 1 Sep - got lucky and able to use it in time.

USAA TrueCar quote for a base DCT Elantra Sport is $20,525. That's with dealer discount of $1260 and $2000 from Hyundai. That's before any Uber, BoostUp or other rebates so you can get it lower. Add those two in and you're down to $19,025 plus TTL. That's about $1000 more than the DC area, which usually have the lowest prices.Vegas dealer is quoting 22k otd for base '18 ES w/ dct I feel like im overpaying even though I understand MSRP is around 24k
