With modern vehicles being packed of technology these days, there are only a few automakers that dare to break away from the norms. Most vehicles these days have infotainment systems that require the driver to touch a screen but not the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport. This model makes use of more buttons like the way it used to be and for good reasons.

2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport: Why Buttons Are Better

According to a report, the 2017 Hyunda Elantra Sport still has the modern features of a touchscreen display in the forms of an eight-inch full color touchscreen with high resolution along with a 3.5-inch thin film transistor (TFT) display situated on the dashboard. The problem with touchscreen is it mostly requires the driver to take their eyes off the road, which could potentially be dangerous. Given this fact, physical buttons are considered to be safer.

Given these facts, it simply makes sense that physical buttons are present in order to help drives access features in their vehicles by simply pressing a button. The 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport excels in this regard as drivers have more buttons pressing instead of screen touching.

Sound system is one of the common features of any modern cars but in most cases, the controls for it have already been integrated into the touchscreen infotainment system. The 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport basically shows an old configuration of allowing drivers to push buttons for the controls of the sound system. The buttons are naturally situated on the center console along with several buttons on the center of the steering wheel.

The buttons located on the steering wheel include driving mode buttons such as cruise control. In addition, there are also buttons for the volume of the sound system along with buttons for receiving and rejecting incoming calls.
