2012 Hyundai Elantra


That said, one or two improvements worth mentioning. First, the 2012 Hyundai Elantra with automatic transmission comes standard ActiveECO function, which modifies the response of the engine and gearbox to reduce consumption by 7%. In addition, XM Satellite Radio is now part of the equipment of the GL version.

That's basically what's new to report. So I can share the reasons, in my humble opinion, explain the great popularity of whether the Elantra in the country, not to mention my editor asked me an article of more than 100 words. Admit it still is quite an achievement than to dethrone the Civic !

The Elantra is arguably the most important model in the current range of the Korean manufacturer, which it generates a large part of the success of Hyundai in Canada. So far in 2011, its sales totaled 32,937 units, largely helping the brand to reach the top rank on the side of cars. Total vehicles sold, Hyundai now in 5th place, mainly due to a lack of trucks in its catalog.

Obviously, the Hyundai Genesis has won numerous awards and captured much public attention, but it is the entry level models like the Elantra and Accent that propel the company at a prodigious pace.

The new Elantra is 23 mm longer than its predecessor (for a total of 4530 mm) while the wheelbase lengthens to 51 mm more to reach 2700 mm. The trunk gains a little (18 liters) but especially the passenger who inherits these millim├Ętres.L interior is also completely revamped and it is difficult to reproach him. One can certainly decry the gray plastic too but, overall, we like the ergonomic dashboard and comfortable seats.
The engine is as new as the rest. This 1.8-liter four-cylinder develops 148 horsepower and 131 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual comes automatically while a six-speed automatic is standard on some models, is offered.

There was a time not so long ago, favor fuel economy meant sacrificing style and quality. Fortunately, times have changed. In my case, I'm having trouble finding a cheap car ("cheap", if you prefer) from among those offered by the industry today. Consumers expect more than just transportation. Hyundai knows it and strives to give them still more for their money.
