The Hyundai Elantra Touring gets better for 2011 by adding leather seating surfaces to the SE model and “EZ Lane Change Assist” to all trim levels.
To help notify other drivers of an upcoming lane change, Hyundai has added “EZ Lane Change Assist” (one-touch triple turn signal stalks). Slight movement of this new stalk will cause the turn signals to blink three times and then automatically go off — an ideal feature for highway passing.
Flowing curves and strong character lines highlight the broad stance and long wheelbase of the Elantra Touring. The clearly defined, unbroken, rising beltline unifies the vehicle’s functional proportions. The effect is an exciting shape that provides a dynamic impression of performance and capability. Elantra Touring has a low coefficient of drag for optimal fuel efficiency at highway speeds and minimal interior noise.
Up front, the pronounced dual air intakes flow smoothly into the hood and A-pillar lines. Sharp projection headlamps, available fog lights and available 17-inch alloy wheels complete the modern design.
The clarity of the instruments, optional B&M Racing sport shifter (M/T) and tilt and telescopic steering wheel contribute to a superior driving experience. For extra clarity, Hyundai’s signature blue LCD lighting technology has been used for the central information display and gauge cluster.
Elantra Touring is powered by the fuel-efficient 2.0-liter, four-cylinder with Continuously Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) for a very broad power band, coupled with high fuel efficiency and low emissions.
Base model estimated mpg: 23/31
Estimated starting price: $15,995
