2011 Hyundai Elantra Safety
The safety of the 2011 Hyundai Elantra should be an important consideration when making your vehicle puchase decision. The Elantra has consistently rated at the top two tier levels of national safety ratings.
One of the three components of the 2011 Elantra's Vehicle Stability Management System, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), places electronic sensors in the steering system and at each wheel which compare where you want to go with where the car is currently going. If there is a difference between the two, Electronic Stability Control slows the component to redirect the car and help keep you on the right course. The traction control system (TCS) limits power and applies brakes to individual wheels to reduce the occurrence of wheelspin. It routes power to the wheel with the most traction. The 2011 Elantra has a sophisticated vehicle stability system that coordinates ESC, TCS, and the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS).
The 2011 Elantra has invested in many of the same features you would find in more expensive cars. For instance, high tensile strength steel, which helps protect people in the unfortunate case of a crash, is standard on the Elantra. In addition, six airbags are included in all models.
