The Hyundai Elantra made its U.S. debut in 1992. At the time, Hyundai was the new kid on the block facing off with the Big Three U.S. automakers. It took some time for Hyundai to get a foothold on the American market, but as consumers began to recognize that the up-and-coming automaker produced quality cars at a cut-rate price, it only took a few years for Hyundai to establish itself in the states. In the Elantra's first generation, it served as a replacement for the Hyundai Excel and was propelled by a Mitsubishi-designed 1.6-liter DOHC engine. The second, third and fourth generation grew to become a popular choice among American car buyers, and when Hyundai purchased struggling car maker Kia, sales began to take off. The newly redesigned Elantra appealed to the American aesthetic of sleek modernity that maintains affordability and quality. Hyundai even introduced a new model to the U.S., the 2009 Hyundai Elantra Touring, which was previously sold overseas as the Hyundai i30 cw. The 2012 Hyundai Elantra maintains its bargain-priced small car status while adding a distinctive "Wind Craft" inspired shape that many Dallas Hyundai drivers are excited about. Van Hyundai has a large inventory of new and used Elantra cars for sale with a variety of Elantra incentives and pricing options, so stop waiting and start driving today!

The Elantra's design philosophy creates a body style that gives rise to the illusion of constant, fluid movement, and its extremely stylish, modern appearance gives Carrollton area customers a luxury vehicle look without luxury vehicle prices. The 2012 Hyundai Elantra has best-in-class standard fuel economy, due in part to its 1.8-liter DOHC 16V 4-cylinder D-CVVT Nu engine. Its Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing camshafts, hydraulic engine mounts and electronic throttle control provide optimum power and efficiency to achieve the Elantra's 40 highway mpg. The engine also produces an impressive amount of power with 148 horsepower and 131 pound-feet of torque.

While it sports a sleek compact profile, Hyundai Elantra reviews give the vehicle high marks for its spacious interior. The Elantra's designers were presented with the difficult task of creating an affordable compact car that delivered the interior room of a midsize car.
