The large cargo hold can be expanded with a 40/20/40 split rear seat. This gives you more combinations for people and cargo. For 2018, Hyundai has bundled consumer favorites into an affordable value package. This makes it easier for shoppers to get a bigger touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. These features, which were new to the 2017 menu, greatly expand what a user can do with the touchscreen system. It also adds push button start, a dual-zone programmable thermostat, and heated front seats. The driver’s seat also gains power adjustments for your comfort. The exterior picks up roof rails, foglights and heated side mirrors. Still want more? A new Premium equipment package adds an auto-dimming rearview mirror and color information screen for the driver.
