New for '09: Hyundai Elantra
The Elantra lineup gets a new model for 2009, a four-door hatchback dubbed the Elantra Touring. It's essentially a four-door sport sedan with the added cargo capacity of a rear hatch. It will come with a 2-liter four-cylinder engine coupled to either a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmission. It features a sport-tuned suspension and a long list of standard equipment, including a power driver's seat, power windows, keyless entry and air conditioning. With pricing expected to start at less than $15,000, the Touring should provide competition for the Toyota Matrix/Pontiac Vibe.
