Hy­dro­gen gets Olympic plat­form

Elantra lighter, more nim­ble on its wheels

Metro Canada (Winnipeg) - - METRO DRIVE -

Hyundai’s Elantra compact sedan gets more aero­dy­namic styling, more horse­power and torque, and bet­ter fuel econ­omy. It’s also lighter yet stronger through greater use of high­strength steels, and dis­plays a more nim­ble driv­ing na­ture with a re­vised sus­pen­sion. Power out­put, fuel ef­fi­ciency, com­fort and safety fea­tures have all been up­graded with ex­ten­sive use of new tech­nol­ogy, said Yang Woong-Chul, vice-chair­man of Hyundai Mo­tor Group re­search and de­vel­op­ment. High-tech up­grades in­clude a driver’s seat that re­mem­bers a driver’s pre­ferred seat­ing po­si­tion, au­ton­o­mous emer­gency brak­ing, au­to­matic high-beam dim­ming and blind-spot de­tec­tion, as well as rear cross-traf­fic alert and hands-free auto-open­ing trunk.
