2010 HYUNDAI ELANTRA
The award-winning Hyundai Elantra enters 2010 an improved weapon against gas prices, with the all-new Blue model achieving an estimated highway fuel economy rating of 35 miles per gallon. Smart engineering enhancements to the rest of the 2010 Elantra lineup improve fuel efficiency by up to four percent.
To make the Elantra "Blue," engineers added a "smart" alternator management system, lower friction engine components, revised transmission gear ratios, engine calibration changes and a shift indicator to last year's Elantra GLS manual. This new high mileage Elantra is indentified with unique "Blue" badging.
Hyundai's advanced 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine powers the Elantra. It is rated at 138 horsepower and 136 lb.-ft. of torque. Elantra delivers a comfortable ride and responsive handling, thanks to a front MacPherson strut suspension with coil springs and gas shock absorbers, and a multi-link independent suspension with twin-tube gas shock absorbers in the rear.
Elantra has the convenience of Hyundai's iPod/USB auxiliary inputs, a new "waterfall" grille, rear chrome trim, chrome interior accents and a monotone black interior color choice for SE models.
Music lovers will welcome the 2010 Elantra's inclusion of XM Satellite Radio and standard auxiliary input jacks (3.5 mm mini-jack and USB input).
Standard on the Elantra SE, Electronic Stability Control is the industry's most significant new safety technology since the seatbelt. All 2010 Elantras have six standard airbags.
