Roadfly.com – 2011 Hyundai Elantra

Hyundai unveiled the redesigned 2011 Elantra at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The Elantra features a ‘Fluidic Sculpture’ design with four-door coupe styling.

The range-topping Limited boasts heated leather seats (front and rear), air conditioning, and a 172-watt audio system with iPod/USB/Bluetooth connectivity. Other options include passive entry and GPS navigation.

Under the hood, power comes from a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine which produces 148 hp (110 kW / 150 PS) and 131 lb-ft (177 Nm) of torque. It is mated to standard six-speed manual transmission (a six-speed automatic is optional), which gives the car a hybrid-like fuel economy rating of 29 mpg city / 40 mpg highway.

On sale later this year, the Elantra will be priced from $14,830.

Written by Roadfly Charlie

Charlie is Roadfly’s founder and publisher, and was taught to drive by his father in a 1974 Porsche 914. That made poor Charlie a Porsche fanboy for life, and after driving a 911SC at 16, he bought and campaigned a variety of 944s at racetracks up and down the East Coast, earning awards and track records in his twenties. Charlie never really got over the car bug, and after a career in real estate development he founded the Internet media firm that became Roadfly. Charlie lives in McLean, VA with his wife and two daughters, and between the demands of family and business doesn’t have much time to play with cars anymore, excluding the machinery we review.
