Model Highlights

A 138-horsepower, 2.0L four-cylinder engine powers all 2009 Hyundai Elantras, and this powerplant is paired with either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. The engine has variable valve timing for responsiveness and efficiency; fuel economy estimates are 25 mpg city and 33 mpg highway.

The Elantra has a revised four-wheel independent suspension with MacPherson struts in front and a multi-link setup with twin-tube shocks in back. Stabilizer bars are utilized both in front and rear for responsive handling. SE models feature stiffer springs for a sportier feel.

Six air bags are standard on all Elantras, including front seat-mounted side air bags and full-length side-curtain air bags protecting all four outward occupants. Front-seat active head restraints and four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with electronic brake-force distribution are also standard across the line.

Elantra is offered in two models: a four-door sedan in either GLS or SE trim, and a new Touring five-door hatchback. In addition to the safety equipment, the GLS has standard power windows and locks, remote entry, tilt steering and a split-folding rear seat, while the sporty-themed SE adds 16-inch alloy wheels, a trip computer, a telescoping steering wheel with audio controls, air conditioning and cruise control. The Elantra Touring is optioned much like the SE, with amenities like heated mirrors, air conditioning, power windows and door locks, and front fog lamps.

Option packages including a CD player, sunroof, cruise control and fog lights can bring more luxury to the base GLS. Option packages on the SE include heated seats, a sunroof and leather interior. For the Elantra Touring, options include Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, a rear cargo tray and cargo net and mudguards.


Model News

The big change in the Hyundai Elantra lineup for 2009 is the addition of the Touring model, a five-door hatchback. The new model shares much of its mechanical underpinnings with the sedan, but has a 2-inch longer wheelbase and is one inch shorter overall. It is powered by the same 2.0L four-cylinder engine found in the Elantra GLS and SE sedans, though output is increased to 141. A five-speed manual transmission is standard, while a four-speed automatic is optional. The new model boasts an impressive 65.3 cubic-feet of cargo volume, and starts at an MSRP of $17,800.

Elsewhere in the Elantra range, GLS and SE cars get revised suspension and steering, while the SE includes stiffer springs for a sportier drive. XM satellite radio is now available on all models, and a USB/iPod jack will debut later in the model year.


Value Writeup

The 2009 Hyundai Elantra has more interior room than the two leading competitors. The Elantra can be considered a strong value based on standard features alone, but its standard safety features are especially impressive. Front side airbags and full-length side-curtain bags, usually optional in this class, are standard on all Elantras. An attractive new Touring model adds versatility to the lineup, featuring an impressive 65.3 cubic-feet of cargo space.

Summary
HYUNDAI IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2007-2009 ELANTRA VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM JULY 14, 2006, THROUGH NOVEMBER 1, 2008. THE FRONT PASSENGER SEATS IN THE VEHICLES CONTAIN A WEIGHT SENSOR DESIGNED TO DEACTIVATE THE RIGHT FRONTAL AIRBAG WHEN OCCUPANTS OF CERTAIN WEIGHTS OCCUPY THE SEAT. THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR FOR THE WEIGHT SENSOR IS LOCATED UNDER THE CENTER CONSOLE, BETWEEN THE FRONT SEATS. UNDER CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES THE CONNECTOR COULD BECOME CONTAMINATED AND MALFUNCTION SUCH THAT THE FRONT PASSENGER AIRBAG WILL DEPLOY REGARDLESS OF THE WEIGHT OF THE OCCUPANT.

Consequence
THE FRONT PASSENGER AIR BAG COULD DEPLOY IN CRASHES IN WHICH IT SHOULD NOT DEPLOY, INCREASING THE RISK OF INJURY TO THE SEAT OCCUPANT FROM THE DEPLOYED AIR BAG.

DEALERS WILL INSTALL A PROTECTIVE COVER OVER THE WEIGHT CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM CONNECTOR TO PREVENT CONTAMINATION. THIS SERVICE WILL BE PERFORMED FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTING TO BEGIN DURING APRIL 2011. OWNERS MAY CONTACT HYUNDAI'S CUSTOMER ASSISTANCE CENTER AT 1-800-633-5151.

HYUNDAI'S SAFETY RECALL CAMPAIGN NUMBER IS 099. OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

Summary
Hyundai Motor Company (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2007-2009 Accent and Tucson, model year 2007-2010 Elantra, model year 2007-2011 Santa Fe, model year 2008-2009 Veracruz, model year 2010-2011 Genesis Coupe, and model year 2011 Sonata vehicles. The stop lamp switch in the affected vehicles may malfunction. A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause an inability to deactivate the cruise control by depressing the brake pedal. Additionally, a malfunctioning stop lamp switch may also result in intermittent operation of the push-button start feature, affect the operation of the brake-transmission shift interlock feature, preventing the shifter from being moved out of the PARK position and cause the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) malfunction light to illuminate.

Consequence
Failure to illuminate the stop lamps during braking or inability to disengage the cruise control could increase the risk of a crash. Additionally, when the ignition is in the 'ON' position, the transmission shifter may be able to be moved out of Park without first applying the brake. This may lead to unintentional movement of the car which may increase the risk of a crash.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the stop lamp switch, free of charge. The safety recall began on April 22, 2013. Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's recall campaign number is 110.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
