Hyundai Elantra at Eddie Mercer Automotive: Model History
In 2000, Hyundai completed a major redesign of the Elantra. Included in that generation were some standard features that were surprising from a Korean car at the time, including side passenger airbags, so that generation of vehicle is still suitable for today’s roads. Many also have keyless entry and electronic traction control, so they represent incredible safety and value today for the price. Another redesign came in 2007, which added more standard features and proved that a Hyundai could hold its own against the likes of Honda and Toyota. Yet another refresh of the Elantra took place in 2011, giving it a unique, highly-aerodynamic shape that’s extremely fuel efficient. The modern Hyundai Elantra design emerged in 2016.
Hyundai Elantra at Eddie Mercer Automotive: Technology and Connectivity
Hyundai Elantra models from 2007-2010 were available with six-speaker audio systems with AM/FM radio, CD player and AUX input — so they’re still compatible with today’s smartphones via an affordable auxiliary cable. Touch-screen infotainment with built-in navigation became available in the next generation, available from 2011-2015. We sometimes even have used examples of the current Hyundai Elantra generation, built from 2016 on, which come standard with Bluetooth® phone audio and steering wheel controls; Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto® are also available on some models.
