2011 hyundai elantra – rpmGo.com

We all heard and perhaps even driven a small car manufactured by well known brands such as Ford, Hyundai or Toyota. These car brands focused on manufacturing amazing 2011 small cars. So, being as well informed as possible is the key to getting the best deal while buying an incredible small car at an affordable price.

I chose to describe two incredible small cars which must be taken into consideration in the process of buying a new small car for you and your family. I was amazed by the 2011 Hyundai Elantra and the 2012 Ford Focus which offer you an incredible interior, comfort, all at a great price. The cars will be available in early 2011 and offer high-end styling, incredible fuel economy, value-conscious pricing and a lot of space if we consider their size.

The 2011 Hyundai Elantra is entirely redesigned and its sheet metal looks like is wrapped around underlying muscles. This car impresses with its unique “Wind Craft” shape featuring front fog lights, wraparound headlights and muscular wheel arches. These features give a sportier and lower profile to this amazing small car.

The interior of this small car impresses by its amazing features that give the car a much more expensive look. Inside the car the driver and the passengers enjoy more space than in a Honda Civic or a Nissan Maxima. The instrumentation is designed around the driver and all the controls are placed handy. The technological features include audio system, iPod/USB, XM Satellite radio, navigation system, Bluetooth, hands free phone system with voice recognition, a rear view camera and climate controls. The cargo space is around 14.8 cubic feet, perfect for a family trip. A special attention was given to reduce the noise, vibration and harshness and as a result the ride became smoother and quieter.

Under the hood, the 2011 Elantra hosts a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with a sophisticated six speed automatic transmission. Using dual continuously variable valve timing, the engineers optimized the intake and the exhaust valve offering maximum performance at different speeds. With a 40 mpg on the highway fuel consumption, this small car is more fuel efficient than the Civic or the Corolla. The 2011 Hyundai Elantra can become your new small car for a price ranging between $15,200 and $20,289.

The second must to buy new small car is the 2012 Ford Focus which looks incredible in both the four and the five doors version. The designers used the massive faux air-inlets on each side of the main grille giving the car an incredible look. The interior makes this car a winner with piano-black and aluminum finishes and an impressive dashboard. The instrumentation panel includes a blind-spot warning system, a rearview camera, a navigation system with an eight-inch screen and keyless ignition. This 2012 Ford manages to offer a high level of comfort, sophistication and handling never seen before in the small cars segment.

The 2012 Ford Focus is powered by a 2.0-liter direct-injection four-cylinder engine equipped with a variable intake and exhaust valve timing. This engine produces 155 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. The Focus is equipped with a six speed manual transmission, but it is also available a six speed dual-clutch gearbox. The electric power steering is a new option along with the “torque vectoring”. If you are thinking about buying this new small car, you must know that its price starts at $16.995 for the S trim level and can go up to $23,490 for the Titanium trim.

What ca I say? Good luck in your attempt to buy a small new car!

It seems that compact sedans are quickly becoming extremely popular in the USA, at least judging by the impressive array of new models set to arrive on the market. These include cars like the Chevrolet Cruze on the 2012 Ford Focus.

Now, a new contender is preparing for its own launch, the 2011 Hyundai Elantra.

We’ve already seen the Elantra be revealed in its native South Korea, at the Busan Motor Show, as the KDM-spec Hyundai Avante. At that time, no details were revealed about US availability. Now, as the Avante is hitting showrooms in its native country, Hyundai has confirmed that the 2011 Elantra will also be reaching US shores by the end of the year.

As you can see, the new model will boast the ‘Fluidic’ design we already saw on the bigger 2011 Sonata. In South Korea, the model is offered with the 1.6-liter Gamma inline-four cylinder engine, capable of 138 HP with 123 lb-ft of torque. While power figures aren’t all that impressive, it can achieve a combined fuel average of 38.8 mpg.

Expect more details about the US-spec 2011 Hyundai Elantra as we reach the end of 2010.
