2010 Hyundai Elantra Blue

What the Elantra BLUE is (from the media site):
"To make the Elantra 'Blue,' engineers added a 'smart' alternator management system, lower-friction engine components, revised transmission gear ratios, engine calibration changes, and a shift indicator to last year's Elantra GLS manual. This new, high-mileage Elantra will be indentified with unique 'Blue' badging. From the Blue edition, the rest of the Elantra line receives its lower-friction engine components, 'smart' alternator management system, and an improved lock-up torque converter to maximize fuel economy at highway speeds."
