The Hyundai Elantra Touring is an all-new five-door compact which is scheduled to reach dealers in the second quarter of 2008 as a 2009 model year vehicle. The name "Touring" stands for the model`s combination of high-function and fun-to-drive character. It boasts class-leading standard safety technologies which include Electronic Stability Control with Traction Control, ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution, and six standard airbags. It will offer the most interior volume and it will receive power from the same fuel-efficient 2.0-liter in-line four-cylinder, which is also found in the Elantra sedan. Its unique sport suspension and steering gain greater handling and response.
