The Best Aerodynamics in the Class!
2012 Elantra was designed at Hyundai North American Center in Irvine, California, U.S.
“Fluidic Design” are Hyundai`s design principles based on nature. Hyundai Elantra design considers the movement of the wind and creates an illusion of constant movement. Actually, Elantra`s design is advanced evolution of the Sonata`s lowing lines design with an obvious undercut feature line with a start at the front door.
All these flowing lines and sleek roof-line are creating the best coefficient of drag in its class, only 0.28. (For example Chevrolet Volt has 0.29).
Spacious and Comfortable Interior!
If you sit in the front, this refers to Elantra coupe; you get With 95.4 cu. ft.passengers space and a car heavier than Elantra sedan. The back seat passengers get the same headroom, knee-room enlarged by 0.50 centimeters and sitting space enlarged by 1.01 centimeters. Even if you buy the basic model you will have well equipped Elantra coupe.
