The 145-hp, lightweight, high-tech engine, standard on the SE and the Limited, generates 130 lb.-ft. of torque. It also gives the Elantra sedan more standard horsepower than the Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic. And the Elantra Sport's 2.0L GDI engine kicks the power up to 173 horsepower and 154 lb.-ft. of torque.
With two highly efficient 4-cylinder engines and a more responsive 6-speed transmission, the Elantra sedan can take you farther on less fuel. At an EPA-estimated 38 MPG on the highway.
Its 173-hp 2.0L engine, special 17-inch alloy wheels and sport-tuned suspension and steering make it the perfect choice for a freeway on-ramp or your favorite twisty, two-lane back road.
The sophisticated technology in the Elantra sedan's available 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC® improves durability and reduces weight. So you can enjoy better fuel efficiency with smoother acceleration on the highway. And a healthy balance of power and comfort for navigating in-town traffic.
