Hyundai unveiled today at the CHicago Auto Show the 2009 Elantra Touring, a sportier, more functional variant of Hyundai’s popular Elantra sedan.
Elantra Touring is powered by the same fuel-efficient 2.0-liter, in line four-cylinder found in the Elantra sedan. This sophisticated 16-valve powerplant employs Dual Overhead Camshafts (DOHC) and Continuously Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) for a very broad power band, coupled with high fuel efficiency and low emissions.
The Elantra Touring’s exterior dimensions (176.2 inches long, 69.5 inches wide and 59.8 inches high) make it a great fit in the compact five-door segment, while its long wheelbase (106.3 inches) means that Elantra Touring offers class-leading interior volume.
UPDATE 12/23/2008: Hyundai has just released prices for the 2009 Hyundai Elantra Touring. Pricing starts at $18,495 for the 2.0-liter (only one offered) 138 hp hatchback/wagon. The price starts to climb when the customer begins to add options with the most expensive model being $19,995 featuring a Premium-Sport package.
More details after the jump.
