2011 Hyundai Elantra Price, Review & Picture – New Car Reviews, Hyundai’s ideology seems to be fading: the philosophy of manufacturing value-conscious vehicles that are dependable but overlooked by consumers is disappearing. Yet, the Hyundai Elentra goes against the grain. It may be in need of some improvements visually-speaking, but the vehicle is well executed. When compared to cars with similar layouts, the Elentra is often less expensive, and this vehicle has a nice selection of standard specs and amenities including things like traction control, stability control, and safety airbags.
The Elantra in a wagon crossover or in the Touring configurations have received some changes too; now this vehicle is offered with a 2.0-Liter 138 horsepower motor delivering 136 foot pound of torque, continuous variable valve timing, and it has four DOCs. The wagon and the Touring have motors married to a four-speed automatic or a five-speed manual transmission. Additional trims include the GLS basic and the SE.
While the present Elantra and Elantra Touring are similarly styled, a new Elantra sedan is coming early in 2011. The new Elantra, a version of which was unveiled in Korea earlier this year, looks a lot like a small Sonata and will come with new powertrain options. In the meantime, the Elantra Touring gets minor styling changes, including new colors and the availability of leather.
The Elantra and Elantra Touring are uncomplicated, value-minded cars with easy-to-use cabins to match. Leather seats are now available on the Elantra Touring SE. Cruise control and a cooled glove box are options. The current Elantra and Elantra Touring are decent-looking, no-frills vehicles. Things get a lot more interesting in early 2011, when swoopy lines and Sonata styling take over. But will there be a new Touring model?
The current-generation Elantra sedan’s 136-horsepower four will get the car to 60 mph in 10.2 seconds and its stops from 60 mph in 118 feet. Get the Elantra or the Elantra Touring with the five-speed manual, and you can have a bit of fun, but we’d advise waiting for the new Elantra’s powertrain options, which are expected to be both more powerful and fuel efficient. We also expect a hybrid option at some point for the Elantra.
Elantra and Elantra Touring come with six standard airbags (dual front, front side, and side curtain), four-wheel disc brakes with ABS and electronic brake-force distribution, and tire-pressure monitoring. Traction control and stability control are optional.
