2012 Hyundai Elantra 4dr Sdn Auto Limited (Ulsan Plant) User Reviews
Roomy small car.By Betty Tarcy(I am an Owner), Oct. 19, 2012The Elantra has plenty of room for a not so large car. It gets an average of 32 miles per gallon. It's comfortable and easy to maneuver.
New 2012 ElantraBy John Silano(I am an Owner), Oct. 19, 2012This is the second Hyundai Elantra I have purchased new. The 2012 hits the mark in so many ways. I love the way the car looks and drives.
2012 Hyundai Elantra OverviewThe Elantra is offered in two different body styles--a 4-door Elantra sedan or a 5-door Elantra Touring wagon. Both models have the same powertrain but there are some mechanical differences between the two.
The new Elantra follows Hyundai's current corporate look, with liquid curves and prominent side creases. A short hood and rear deck maximize interior space. It comes with a new 1.8L 4-cylinder engine that uses variable valve timing to make 148 horsepower. Connected to either a 6-speed manual or optional 6-speed automatic, in either form, it's capable of an astounding 38 mpg on the highway and 28 mpg in the city.
The base manual-transmission-equipped Elantra carries a value-laden feature list. It includes heated mirrors, an iPod-integrated stereo, power windows, power door locks, remote keyless entry as well as advanced safety equipment such as stability control, anti-lock brakes and front, side and curtain air bags. Air conditioning, cruise control and a telescoping steering wheel are all now standard on automatic-equipped versions, but remain optional on manual-equipped cars. Alloy wheels, steering wheel audio controls and Bluetooth all come with the optional Preferred Equipment Package.
The Elantra Limited sets new standards for compact sedans. Included equipment is well above its class and includes 17-inch alloy wheels, a power sunroof, fog lamps, power-adjustable leather seats, a heated rear seat and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Other Limited-only features include keyless entry and remote start, both of which are optional. A navigation system is also available top-level Limited cars, including a 7-inch screen, 360-watt amplifier and automatic headlamps.
2012 Hyundai Elantra Model Changes
Following a complete redesign in 2011, the Hyundai Elantra returns largely unchanged for 2012, save for several trim modifications. The base GLS model now has air conditioning, cruise control and a telescopic steering wheel all standard on automatic-equipped versions, and all optional with manual transmission. Navigation is no longer available on the GLS, but is still optional on the Limited.
2012 Hyundai Elantra Value
The Hyundai Elantra is no longer just an affordable alternative to the Honda Civic, it aims to match, and in some ways, beat it. For 2012, the Elantra features a powerful and very efficient engine and a choice of two 6-speed transmissions. With either transmission option, the Elantra is capable of an amazing-for-any-class 40 mpg on the highway. The base model starts at just under $16,000 and a fully loaded Elantra tops out around $23,000.
