ELANTRA TOURING NAMED A TOP FAMILY CAR BY ABOUT.COM CARS Recognized the Elantra Touring on its List of Top Ten Family Cars Under $20,000


FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Jan. 29, 2010 – Cars recognized the Hyundai Elantra Touring on its list of Top Ten Family Cars under $20,000 for its big cargo bay, list of standard features and affordable price tag. Other cars that made the list include the Mazda5, Volkswagen Jetta, Subaru Impreza, Kia Rondo, Dodge Caliber, Scion xB, Honda Fit and Nissan Cube.

“Finding a budget-friendly car is tough enough; when you have kids, it becomes more difficult,” said Aaron Gold, Cars. “The innovative Elantra Touring is bigger than a hatchback, smaller than a wagon, and perfectly sized for new and growing families. The big cargo bay makes for a great vacationmobile.”

When introduced in 2009, the all-new more functional variant of Hyundai’s popular Elantra sedan, Elantra Touring was looked at as one of best bargains in the industry. Now the Elantra Touring is even better for 2010 with an all-new entry-level GLS model offering loads of standard equipment including air conditioning, AM/FM/XM/CD/MP3 audio system with six speakers and iPod®/USB and MP3 auxiliary input jacks, power windows, heated mirrors, power door locks, remote keyless entry with alarm, and plenty of storage compartments including a cooled glove compartment. The Elantra Touring also offers standard Electronic Stability Control (ESC), in addition to a host of other class-leading safety technologies.

“Elantra Touring is a perfect, affordable choice for families in the market for a new vehicle,” said Brandon Ramirez, Elantra Touring product manager, Hyundai Motor America. “And with the new GLS model, families can get more for their dollar with a long list of standard convenience features along with Hyundai’s commitment to class-leading safety features.”
