Model News

A new base Elantra Blue model joins the Elantra sedan lineup for 2010, offering a 2-mpg improvement in both city and highway driving. The rest of the lineup gets a 1-mpg improvement in fuel economy.

All models now get USB, iPod and auxiliary audio inputs. The formerly base GLS model has been moved upscale somewhat and the former elements of the Popular Equipment Package have been made standard. All models now get the rear chrome garnish trim that was only seen on the SE model last year, the grille has been redesigned, and thoughout the line Elantra models with cloth seats get a new upholstery and a chrome finish for inside door handles. The former black and dark-gray 2-tone interior is replaced with a black-on-black theme.

On the Elantra Touring wagon, a new lower-priced GLS model has been added alongside the SE; 15-inch steel wheels are newly standard and roof rails are now available.

New colors include Carbon Gray Mist, Space Black and Polar White, replacing Carbon Gray, Black Pearl and Captiva White.


Value Writeup

The Elantra is very roomy compared to other small cars, and it has a high-quality interior feel; Hyundai says that the Elantra sedan is larger inside than most other vehicles of comparable exterior size, with more interior and cargo space than the Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla. Hyundai also says that the Touring wagon also has more interior volume than any 5-door in its class. Ride quality and refinement are also better than most rivals.


Model Highlights

The Elantra is offered in two different body styles--a 4-door Elantra sedan or a 5-door Elantra Touring wagon. Both models have the same powertrain but there are some mechanical differences between the two.

A new base Blue model is available for the Elantra but not the Elantra Touring. The Elantra Blue comes with the same 138-horsepower, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that powers the rest of the model line, but with a number of small changes engineers have improved fuel economy by 2 mpg, to 26 mpg city, 35 highway with the standard 5-speed manual transmission. The other Elantras get the same changes except for revised gear ratios and improved 1 mpg over last year in both city and highway driving.

The Elantra has a front strut-type suspension with a multi-link rear suspension, and the setup is tuned a bit differently depending on the model. Blue and GLS models ride comfortably with just enough firmness to maintain crisp handling response, while SE models have stiffer settings. The Elantra's engine doesn't need to be revved as much as other engines its size, so it works quite well with either transmission, with a reasonably lively driving feel.

The Elantra and Elantra Touring both have comfortable seating for four adults (three kids can fit across in back), including a height-adjustable driver's seat, plus a 60/40-split folding rear seatback. Touring models get a sportier seat design, while 8-way adjustable seats are optional. The Touring's cargo capacity expands to more than 65 cubic feet with the seats folded, to accommodate cumbersome cargo.

For 2010, a new, more affordable Elantra Touring GLS model joins the Touring SE. The upgraded 6-speaker audio system is included on all Touring models. A Popular Equipment Package adds roof rails, steering wheel audio controls, telescopic steering-wheel adjustment, a cooled glovebox, fog lamps and premium cloth upholstery to the Touring GLS. The SE gets dressed up with the contents of that package plus 17-inch alloy wheels and a sunroof, along with the sport-tuned suspension.

Standard-feature content is rich, even on base Blue models of the Elantra, including keyless entry, power accessories and air conditioning. Electronic stability control is standard on the Elantra SE along with all Elantra Touring models. Also standard are front side airbags, full-length side-curtain bags and front-seat active head restraints. Optional on the Blue is a Comfort Package that brings cruise control and an upgraded 6-speaker audio system. Across the product line, the Elantra includes XM satellite radio capability, plus USB, iPod and auxiliary-in jacks.

Options are limited on the Elantra models. A Bluetooth hands-free interface is available as a standalone extra.

Summary
Hyundai Motor Company (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2006-2009 Accent, model year 2007-2011 Azera, Sonata and Sante Fe,2006-2011 Tucson, 2009-2011 Elantra Touring, 2007-2010 Elantra, 2008-2011 Veracruz, 2009-2011 Genesis, 2010-2011 Genesis Coupe, 2007-2008 Entourage, and 2006-2008 Tiburon vehicles. Originally, in April 2013, Hyundai recalled 1,059,824 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. In September 2013, Hyundai informed the agency that it was adding more vehicles to this campaign, representing an additional 652,512 units. The total number of vehicles being recalled is now 1,712,336. In the affected vehicles, the stop lamp switch 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 crui...

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).
