2011 Hyundai Elantra
Review, Prices, Comparisons, Pictures
The 2011 Hyundai Elantra has a new body shape that is not unlike its midsize counterpart, the Sonata.
The style of the new Elantra breaks free of the boring style most compact cars display. Designed in Southern California, the 2011 Elantra's style has a coupe-like roofline and an increased wheelbase, changing its profile to be lower, sportier, and more appealing than its boxy competitors. Because of its shape, the 2011 Elantra has a low 0.28 co-efficient of drag. This allows it to achieve an impressive level of gas mileage: 40 mpg on the highway. The 2011 Elantra houses a new, better engine that gives it higher mpg and generates more hp than the previous generation engine. This new engine comes with either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission.
Even the least expensive 2011 Elantra comes with a six-speed automatic transmission, alloy wheels, heated mirrors, Bluetooth connectivity, a USB iPod interface, and power windows and locks. With all of these features, it is a very strong value, as its most popular version prices out at around $18,000. Every 2011 Elantra is eqiupped with remote keyless entry, and a height-adjustable driver’s seat. 2011 Elantras have 60/40 split folding rear seatbacks. The dashboard displays more information than you might expect including distance to empty, average gas mileage, and average speed. The fully equipped $22,700 Limited version provides heated leather front and rear seats, a navigation system, and pushbutton ignition.
Standard safety features include front torso-protecting side air bags. There are head-protecting curtain side airbags in both seating rows.
As you can see, the Hyundai, with its new sporty styling and improved features is a great value for a compact sedan. In particular, the 2011 Hyundai Elantra provides numerous luxurious features for most of its models, even the least expensive packages. For features, mileage, and styling, the 2011 Elantra will not disappoint you.
