First Look: 2011 Hyundai Elantra

The U.S.-market 2011 Hyundai Elantra will be produced in Alabama. It’ll be powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine producing some 148 horsepower (145 in California) and 131 pound-feet of torque (130 in California). Power will flow forth to a six-speed automatic gearbox with manual shifting capabilities or a six-speed manual before hitting the front wheels through a MacPherson strut suspension. The rear end will be held in place by a torsion beam design. Thanks to a slipper 0.28 drag coefficient, the new Elantra is rated at 29 mpg city and 40 mpg highway regardless of transmission choice. And, of course, the sheet metal and interior are all new.
