Hyundai Motor America will show a colorful glimpse of the future when it takes the wraps off the Elantra Touring "Beach Cruiser" Concept at the 2007 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) on October 30. The custom concept is derived from the all-new five-door Elantra Touring, which arrives in the U.S. in 2008, taking advantage of the strong resurgence in compact hatchbacks.
Hyundai announced company’s all-new five-door compact will be named "Elantra Touring," a model that will reach dealers in the spring of 2008 as a
2009 model year vehicle. The "Touring" name captures this all-new model’s
combination of high-function and fun-to-drive character.
The all-new 2007 Elantra makes its world debut today at the 2006 New York International Auto Show. Hyundai’s 2007 Elantra is the seventh all-new model from Hyundai in just 24 months, giving Hyundai the freshest lineup in the industry. All new from headlight to taillight, Elantra brings more refinement, safety and interior space to compact car shoppers.
