Hyundai started off auto show season debuts with the redesigned Elantra at the 2010 LA Auto Show. In addition to great fuel economy and affordable price tag, the compact 2011 Elantra boasts the ‘Fluidic Sculpture’ design with four-door coupe styling, i.e. the same style you may recognize from the Tucson and Sonata. The Elantra will go on sale before the new year with a starting price of $14,830.
The range-topping Elantra Limited boasts heated leather seats (front and rear) and a 172-watt audio system with iPod/USB/Bluetooth connectivity. Other options include passive entry and GPS navigation. Under the hood, the Elantra is powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 148 horsepower and 131 lb-ft of torque, mated to standard six-speed manual transmission (a six-speed automatic is optional), giving the car a hybrid-like fuel economy rating of 29 mpg city and 40 mpg highway.
