The completely redesigned Elantra is almost here.

The all new redesigned 2011 Hyundai Elantra is loaded on the truck and headed to the dealership.  Glenbrook Hyundai could not be more excited.  We haven’t had the oppurtunity to drive one yet but all the critics are raving about all of the exciting changes.   Hyundai Motors has already provided some great special APR’s and awesome lease specials.  With price points from $15,500 and up to 40 miles to the gallon the Elantra will be one of the best buys on the market!

Elantra is the fourth vehicle in Hyundai’s 24/7 version 2.0 product initiative (seven new models in the next 24 months), following on the heels of the all-new Tucson, Sonata and Equus. The 2011 Elantra represents a modern approach to the traditional compact sedan segment, using emotional design and luxury features offered with Hyundai’s strong value proposition. The 2011 Elantra poses some intriguing questions:
• Why can’t a compact car have modern, sleek, sophisticated style?
• Why pay luxury car prices to get advanced safety features?
• Why buy a mid-size sedan when you can get exceptional room in a compact car?
• Why can’t a compact car get subcompact car fuel economy?

Elantra exemplifies Hyundai’s emotional “Fluidic Sculpture” design principles. “Fluidic Sculpture” considers the interplay of wind with rigid surfaces to create the illusion of constant motion. Elantra is an evolution of the design qualities found in Sonata. Successful sedans in the U.S. market all have a distinct silhouette and Day Light Opening (DLO – a designer’s term for the side glass) and Elantra is no different. Along Elantra’s sides are Sonata’s flowing lines, with the addition of a strong undercut feature line starting at the front door. These lines, along with muscular wheel arches and a sleek roofline, create a memorable and spacious package. Flowing lines also lead to an aerodynamic body. The drag coefficient for the Elantra is an exceptionally low 0.28 that compares favorably to the Chevrolet Volt (0.29).

Hyundai’s signature hexagonal front grille and detailed swept-back headlights give Elantra a compact athletic face. The assertive stance is complimented by 15-, 16- or 17-inch alloy wheels and athletic proportions. Available fog lights and side repeater mirrors complete the distinct design. Elantra was designed at Hyundai’s North American Design Center in Irvine, Calif.
