Model News

The Hyundai Elantra was given a complete redesign in 2011 and reintroduced to the American market as a 4-door sedan. For 2013 Hyundai has expanded the Elantra lineup to include a coupe and a hatchback. The hatchback, dubbed Elantra GT, has five doors, while the coupe is a 2-door with a traditional trunk. The sedan also receives minor trim updates, bumping up equipment levels on the more economical trims.


Model Highlights

The sedan version of the 2013 Elantra continues to offer premium style and features at an economy car price point. Available in two trims, GLS and Limited, the Elantra packs a lot of car into a relatively small package. The GLS is the more basic of the two trims but still includes many uncommon features for a car at this price point, such as an iPod-ready 6-speaker stereo, heated mirrors and a tilting and telescoping steering column. Adding the Preferred Package to an automatic-equipped GLS Elantra will further increase equipment levels by adding steering wheel-mounted audio controls, heated front seats, fog lights, 16-inch alloy wheels and Bluetooth connectivity.

Buyers who opt for the Elantra Limited will get an Elantra packed full of features normally only seen on much more expensive cars. Starting with leather seats, the Limited features items such as 17-inch wheels, a tilting and sliding glass moonroof, heated front and rear seats, a power driver's seat with lumbar control and side mirrors with built in turn signals. Adding the technology package further enhances things, with a 7-inch screen housing a navigation system and rearview camera. Also included in the technology package are automatic headlights, dual zone climate control and an upgraded 360 watt stereo system.

The Hyundai Elantra GT is brand-new for 2013. A practical hatchback, the Elantra GT competes with the likes of the Ford Focus, the Mazda 3 and the VW Golf. The most tangible benefit of having a hatchback in place of a traditional trunk is of course, interior volume. Happily, the Elantra GT tops its competition in terms of space while also adding a certain sportiness. Weighing significantly less than its competitors, the Elantra GT reaps the dual benefits of improved handling and improved fuel economy. The slightly more upscale nature of the Elantra GT is also obvious in the list of interior accoutrements, featuring items like a cooled glovebox and a hidden rear camera for reversing.

The Elantra Coupe comes in two trim levels, GS and SE. Both models utilize the same powertrain as the rest of the Elantra line up, with a 1.8L 4-cylinder attached to a 6-speed manual or optional 6-speed automatic. Removing two doors has a nice effect on the cars styling, further highlighted by the more aggressive front fascia. Alloy wheels are standard on the coupe, 16-iches for the GS or 17-inches on the SE. The SE also benefits from nice touches like a leather wrapped shift knob, leather door inserts and a sport tuned suspension. The Elantra Coupe is an excellent choice for people who value good style in a small package.


Value Writeup

The Elantra is Hyundai's entry into the compact car market, competing with household names such as the Honda Civic and the Toyota Corolla. It is a competitive segment, but Hyundai hopes its standout styling, high level of equipment and outstanding warranty are enough to convince buyers that the Elantra is the car to have. Starting at $16,695, the Elantra has plenty of standard features and even manages to top 38 mpg on the highway, while offering much more than just basic transportation.

Summary
Hyundai Motor Company is recalling certain model year 2011-2013 Elantra vehicles manufactured from November 12, 2010, through March 5, 2013. A support bracket attached to the headliner may become displaced during a side curtain airbag deployment.

Consequence
If the headliner support bracket makes contact with an occupant during a crash, it may cause a laceration injury.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will apply adhesive strips to the headliner, free of charge. The safety recall began during April 2013. Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's recall campaign number is 109.

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.

Summary
Hyundai Motor America (Hyundai) is recalling certain model 2013 Elantra vehicles manufactured December 1, 2012, to April 30, 2013. The brake pedal stopper pad can deteriorate allowing the brake light switch plunger to remain extended when the brake pedal is released.

Consequence
If the brake light switch plunger does not retract as it should when the brake pedal is not being pressed, the brake lights may stay illuminated preventing accurate communication to following vehicles that the vehicle is slowing or stopping. Additionally, if the brake switch plunger is not retracted, then the transmission can be shifted out of PARK without depressing the brake pedal. Either condition increases the risk of a crash.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the brake pedal stopper pad with an improved part, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on September 30, 2016. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-855-371-9460. Hyundai's number for this recall is 146.

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.
