2011 ELANTRA TOURING ADDS VALUE AND CONVENIENCE FEATURES

Elantra Touring, one of best bargains in the , gets even better for 2011 by adding leather seating surfaces to the SE model and 'EZ Lane Change Assist' to all trim levels. The enhanced 2011 Elantra Touring hits dealerships this summer.

NEW EQÚIPMENT HIGHLIGHTS FOR 2011• Standard leather seating surfaces on Elantra Touring SE

• Standard 'EZ Lane Change Assist' - one touch triple turn signal stalks on all trim levels

• Standard headlight welcome function on all trim levels

• Three new colors, including Atlantic Blue, Shimmering Silver and Titanium Gray Metallic

• Available roof rails are now silver (replacing black)

• Available roof rack cross rails (port installed)

ELANTRA TOÚRING GLS - THE GOOD STÚFF COMES STANDARD

Elantra Touring GLS adds a new feature to build on Hyundai's reputation for offering loads of standard equipment. The headlight welcome function works when the driver presses open on the remote keyless entry illuminating the headlights. This new convenience feature is helpful at night in crowded stadium parking lots. 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.

Elantra Touring GLS continues to offer standard air conditioning, power windows, heated mirrors, power door locks, remote keyless entry wîth alarm and plenty of storage compartments including a cooled glovebox. The Elantra Touring also offers standard advanced safety technologies including Electronic Stability Control (ESC).

For audiophiles, an integrated 172-watt AM/FM/XM/CD/MP3 audio system wîth six speakers and iPod/ÚSB/Auxiliary inputs is standard.

The optional Popular Equipment Package on the GLS adds new silver roof rails, a telescopic §teering wheel, trip computer, §teering wheel mounted audio controls, eight-way driver's seat wîth lumbar support, dual illuminated vanity mirrors, sliding sunvisors, seatback pockets, retractable cargo cover, illuminated ignition and premium cloth interior. Cruise control is also standard on all GLS models equipped wîth automatic transmissions.

ELANTRA SE – ADDING A SPORTY FLAVOR

The sport-oriented SE adds all the equipment in the GLS Popular Equipment Package plus new standard leather seats, heated front seats, a power sunroof wîth tilt and slide functions, leather §teering wheel and shift knob, B&M Racing sport shifter (M/T), fog lights and 17-inch alloy wheels wîth P215/45R17 tires.

DEVELOPMENT

The Elantra Touring, wîth its modern, sleek styling and fun-to-drive qualities, was developed by Hyundai in response to the growing demand for stylish and functional five-door vehicles. As wîth all Hyundai vehicles, the Elantra Touring was designed and manufactured to meet the most stringent quality standards in the , exemplifying Hyundai's quality leadership position worldwide.

ASSERTIVE EXTERIOR DESIGN

Vital Stats
Engine : 2.0 L., 4-cylinder
Power: 138 hp
Torque: 136 ft-lbs

5-speed Manual, 4-speed Automatic
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.

Úp 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.

ROOMY AND REFINED INTERIOR


The long wheelbase and generous width of the Elantra Touring, combined wîth Hyundai's expertise in interior packaging, have produced an interior that delivers class-leading comfort, functionality and practicality. At 125.5 cubic feet, the Elantra Touring has the most interior volume (passenger volume plus cargo space) of any five-door in its class*. In fact, Elantra Touring's cargo capacity is 65.3 cubic feet wîth the rear seats folded down, resulting in more cargo space than other five-doors in its class.

The clarity of the instruments, optional B&M Racing sport shifter (M/T) and tilt and telescopic §teering 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. Two-tone beige interior trim, wîth special attention to the upholstery, delivers a premium feel. Black and beige are the two interior color choices.

The Elantra Touring was the first compact five-door to offer XM Satellite Radio® and iPod®/ÚSB auxiliary inputs as standard equipment. When an iPod or flash drive is connected through the ÚSB port not only does it play music through the vehicle's six-speaker audio system, but it also charges the iPod and allows the driver to access tracks wîth the §teering wheel audio controls. This system also allows both driver and passengers to easily view song/artist/title information and control the music from the audio head unit or §teering wheel audio controls rather than from the iPod itself. The center storage compartment location of the iPod/ÚSB auxiliary inputs assures that iPods can be safely stowed out of sight.

INTELLIGENT ERGONOMICS

With its leading-edge designs, Hyundai has proven through the years that vehicles do not need to be large to feel spacious, nor carry a premium price when offering intelligently designed interior cabins. The Elantra Touring is just the latest expression of this thoughtful approach, incorporating a telescopic §teering wheel, conveniently located §teering wheel audio/cruise controls and column stalks, easy-to-reach heating and air conditioning knobs, as well as conveniently positioned power windows and mirror controls. Even the positioning and precise feel of the automatic gearshift has been optimized. The integrated 172-watt AM/FM/XM/CD/MP3 audio system, map pockets and other storage areas round out the conveniently and intelligently designed interior space.

Sporty front seats, designed to complement the driving dynamics of the vehicle, and carefully contoured rear seats, provide long distance comfort and support. Hyundai engineers focused not just on the seats' form and function, but also on the stitching, materials and bolstering. The available eight-way driver's seat includes height adjustment and lumbar support.

IMPRESSIVE PACKAGE EFFICIENCY

The Elantra Touring's exterior dimensions (176.2 inches long, 69.5 inches wide and 59.8 inches high) make it a great fit in the compact five-door §egmènt, while its long wheelbase (106.3 inches) means that Elantra Touring offers class-leading interior volume. Every Elantra Touring has 60/40 split folding rear seats for added storage, functionality and practicality.

The Elantra Touring matches best-in-class passenger volume wîth best-in-class cargo capacity. Features include a useful 24.3 cubic feet of luggage space wîth rear seats upright and a cavernous 65.3 cubic feet wîth the rear seats folded flat. As in any Hyundai, the utility and convenience in the Elantra Touring has not been overlooked, wîth a stow-and-go removable luggage cover that stores conveniently out-of-site under the trunk area compartment. An optional restraining net is also offered. The available silver roof rails are designed to accommodate lifestyle oriented rack systems to take Elantra Touring's utility to an even higher level.

The Elantra Touring includes a number of convenient and standard storage features, including a sunglass holder, two front and two rear cupholders, door bottle holders, dash storage, central console storage, front storage tray, and a cargo area under-floor storage. For tailgaters, the cargo area also has a 12-volt outlet, where the vehicle does not have to be turned on, for portable electronic devices.

ENGINE PERFORMANCE

Elantra Touring is powered by the same fuel-efficient 2.0-liter, in-line four-cylinder found in the Elantra sedan. (concept carz) This sophisticated 16-valve powerplant employs Dual Overhead Camshafts (DOHC) and Continuously Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) for a very broad power band, coupled wîth high fuel efficiency and low emissions. Elantra Touring is certified as an Últra Low Emission Vehicle (ÚLEV). With a manual transmission, the Elantra Touring's EPA mileage is 23 mpg City and 31 mpg Highway. With the optional four-speed automatic transmission, the Elantra Touring's EPA rating is 23 mpg City and 30 mpg Highway.

TRANSMITTING THE POWER

Hyundai understands that performance means more than just engine output, which is why transmission choices have been optimized for real driving satisfaction.

An ergonomically located gated gear shift controls the Elantra Touring's four-speed automatic transmission delivering confident mode selection. A unique-in-§egmènt optional B&M Racing sport shifter delivers smooth, short-throw shift control for the standard five-speed manual transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com)

AGILE STEERING, SÚSPENSION AND BRAKING

The Hyundai Elantra Touring offers a dynamic driving experience. A MacPherson strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension have been fitted to perfectly complement the body structure's high rigidity. Ventilated 11.8-inch front and solid 10.3-inch rear discs wîth ABS and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) provide excellent stopping power wîth added handling control.

Elantra Touring delivers high performance §teering and adds unique springs, front and rear stabilizer bars and dampers. Elantra Touring features a 24 percent stiffer front spring rate, a 39 percent stiffer rear spring rate, a larger front stabilizer bar (24 mm) and larger rear stabilizer bar (21mm) than the 2010 Elantra sedan. (concept carz) The 17-inch alloy wheels, wîth ultra-low profile tires, add visual impact and extra grip to the Elantra Touring's sporty dynamics.

Elantra Touring's §teering character is another key driver of its sporty driving nature. Hyundai chassis engineers focused on delivering an agile feel, wîth direct responses to driver inputs. That spirit translates to a fun-to-drive character in everyday driving situations. And all drivers will appreciate Elantra Touring's nimble turning diameter – at 34.2 feet it is better than Volkswagen Golf's 35.7 feet and Toyota Matrix's 36.0 feet.

ADVANCED STANDARD SAFETY TECHNOLOGIES

Like every Hyundai, top-tier safety was a key development goal for the Elantra Touring, which is fully equipped to protect driver and passengers. In terms of passive safety, it features dual front, side and curtain airbags, for a total of six protective airbags in the vehicle. The Elantra Touring also features active front head restraints, seatbelt pretensioners and a seatbelt reminder. The combination of side and curtain airbags, which help protect the head and body during side impacts, can reduce fatalities by more than 52 percent, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Also according to the IIHS, active front head restraints improve rear crash protection.

These passive safety technologies are fully grounded in a state-of-the-art body structure, which includes deformable zones, occupant protection cell and three-way load distribution technology. Further rigidity has been achieved wîth reinforced A pillars, strengthened bulkhead, front and side members, and strengthened B and C pillars.

All Elantra Tourings come standard wîth Electronic Stability Control (ESC), one of the 's most effective life-saving technologies. ESC compares the driver's intended course wîth the vehicle's actual response. It then brakes individual front or rear wheels and/or reduces engine power as needed in certain driving circumstances to help correct understeer or oversteer. National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) studies show passenger cars equipped wîth ESC experience 30 percent fewer fatalities in single-vehicle crashes.

In developing and refining the safety features of the Elantra Touring, Hyundai employed advanced design systems and sophisticated computer simulation, combined wîth intensive component testing. This is a process used in the development of all Hyundai vehicles. From drawing board and prototype testing to final product development, Hyundai uses this extensive process to assure that all its vehicles – including the Elantra Touring – meet or exceed government safety standards, as well as the expectations of vehicle buyers.
