July 8, 2011 - Hyundai Motor America is pleased to announce the release of the 2012MY Hyundai Elantra Touring. Elantra Touring provides the five-door versatility customers need, with all the features they demand. With package/option changes for 2012 including the addition of 16-inch alloy wheels and two new color choices, the 2012 Elantra Touring continues to add value in the compact car segment.

Elantra Touring GLS continues to offer standard air conditioning, EZ Lane Change Assist, power windows, heated mirrors, power door locks, remote keyless entry with alarm and plenty of storage compartments including a cooled glovebox. The Elantra Touring also offers standard advanced safety technologies including Electronic Stability Control (ESC). For audiophiles, an integrated 172-watt AM/FM/XM/CD/MP3 audio system with six speakers and iPod®/USB/Auxiliary inputs are standard.

Elantra Touring’s exterior dimensions make it a great fit in the compact five-door segment, while its long wheelbase means that Elantra Touring offers class-leading interior volume. Every Elantra Touring has 60/40 split folding rear seats for added storage, functionality and practicality.

The Elantra Touring matches best-in-class passenger volume with best-in-class cargo capacity. Features include a useful 24.3 cubic feet of luggage space with rear seats upright and a cavernous 65.3 cubic feet with the rear seats folded flat. As in any Hyundai, the utility and convenience in the Elantra Touring has not been overlooked, with a stow-and-go removable luggage cover that stores conveniently out-of-site under the trunk area. An optional restraining net is also offered. The available silver roof rails are designed to accommodate a rack system to take Elantra Touring’s utility to an even higher level.

Elantra Touring offers an unprecedented combination of safety, versatility, & value.
