The all-new 2009 Elantra Touring is a sportier, more functional variant of Hyundai’s popular Elantra sedan.

The Elantra Touring, with its modern, sleek styling and fun-to-drive qualities, was developed by Hyundai in response to the growing demand for stylish and functional five-door vehicles.

Flowing curves and strong character lines highlight the broad stance and long wheelbase of the Elantra Touring. The clearly defined, unbroken, rising beltline unifies the vehicle’s functional proportions. Sporty front seats, designed to complement the athletic driving dynamics of the vehicle, and carefully contoured rear seats, provide long distance comfort and support. Hyundai engineers focused not just on the seats’ form and function, but also on the stitching, materials and bolstering.

The Elantra Touring matches best-in-class passenger volume with best-in-class cargo capacity. There is a useful 24.3 cubic feet of luggage space with rear seats upright and a cavernous 65.3 cubic feet with the rear seats folded flat.

Elantra Touring is powered by the same fuel-efficient 2.0-liter, four-cylinder found in the Elantra sedan. This sophisticated 16-valve powerplant employs Continuously Variable Valve Timing for a very broad power band, coupled with high fuel efficiency and low emissions.

Base model estimated mpg: 23/31

Estimated starting price: TBA
