2009 Elantra Overview

The Hyundai Elantra is a compact car with handsome styling, a notable complement of safety features, commendable driving manners, a responsive and fuel-efficient powertrain, a strong warranty and above-average value for the money.

The 2009 Hyundai Elantra comes in four-door sedan and five-door hatchback versions, the latter a sporty model called the Elantra Touring.

The Elantra competes against the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, Nissan Sentra, Mazda3, Ford Focus, Chevy Cobalt and other compact cars.The Elantra offers lots of interior space for the class and, by several other measures, it holds its own against those cars.Hyundai claims the Elantra warranty, of five years or 60,000 miles, plus 10 years or 100,000 miles for the powertrain, is the best in its class, which gives buyers peace of mind.

Fuel economy is quite good.A 2009 Elantra sedan with the optional four-speed automatic transmission is EPA-rated at 25/33 mpg City/Highway.

Elantra's spacious cabin can seat up to five.We found the front seats very comfortable.The back seats offer ample hip room and adequate legroom, though it's more comfortable with four than it is with five people.Storage compartments galore add to its practicality and convenience.

The Elantra can cruise down the highway at 80 miles per hour all day without straining, and it's quiet at high speeds.The ride is good, although a bad freeway with relentless sharp bumps is more than the Elantra can accept without passing on some of the annoyance to those in the front seats.We found the brakes excellent and the cornering good.

For 2009, a sporty new Elantra Touring model joins the line-up.The Touring is a five-door configuration, with styling that's different than that of the sedan, and on a longer wheelbase.It's a sportier, yet more functional alternative that, by virtue of its sports suspension and more responsive steering, is fun to drive and, at the same time, delivers the versatility and utility of a five-door body style.In fact, it has more interior volume than any other five-door vehicle in its class.Elantra Touring comes standard with Electronic Stability Control, unusual for this class.

Other changes for the 2009 Elantra are minor.For 2009, the audio system has a larger display and improved XM Satellite Radio reception, and there have been enhancements to the instrument cluster design and suspension.
