2012 HYUNDAI ELANTRA
The award-winning Hyundai Elantra continues to combat high gas prices in 2012 by adding an ActiveECO System that modifies engine and transmission control to smooth out throttle response and increase real-world fuel economy by up to seven percent. In addition, the 2012 Elantra has added several new convenience features to enhance passenger comfort.
Elantra's exterior flowing lines lead to an aerodynamic body. Hyundai's signature front grille and detailed swept-back headlights give Elantra a compact athletic face. The assertive stance is complimented by 15-, 16- or 17-inch alloy wheels and athletic proportions. Available fog lights and side repeater mirrors complete the distinct design.
Under the hood, the Elantra is powered by an all-new 1.8-liter Nu four-cylinder engine with 148 horsepower and 131 lb-ft of torque.
The 2012 Elantra can be equipped with a six-speed manual or automatic transaxle with SHIFTRONIC manual control. The all-new six-speed automatic is 11 pounds lighter than Hyundai's global five-speed. Elantra's six-speed manual transmission is also all-new and provides crisp shifts and further optimizes engine performance.
Inside the Elantra, customers will find Hyundai's expertise in interior packaging, lighting, leading-edge design and craftsmanship. This approach is visible in the clarity of the instruments and the tilt and available telescopic steering wheel.
The seats are made of lightweight, environmentally friendly foam. Heated seats are available in the front and the rear, a segment first. Not only does Elantra have multiple storage areas, but it delivers useable storage capacity.
