2012 Hyundai Elantra Touring Trims

GLS

Avg. Price: $14,678

The Hyundai Elantra Touring GLS 5-door, 5-passenger hatchback rolls into 2012 with no updates other than new Volcanic Red and Dove White exterior colors. Inside, the GLS's roomy cabin comes equipped with such standard features as cloth upholstery, front bucket seats, air conditioning and remote keyless entry. Hyundai also includes a 6-speaker AM/FM audio system with a CD/MP3 player, SiriusXM satellite radio and USB and auxiliary input jacks. The second-row seat splits 60/40 and folds down, expanding cargo space up to 65.3 cubic feet, and includes a center armrest with cupholders. Other standard features include power windows and door locks and a center console with storage. Owners can add Bluetooth as an option.

Power for the front-wheel-drive Elantra Touring GLS comes from a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, which generates 138 hp and 136 lb-ft of torque. The engine pairs with either a 5-speed manual transmission, which comes standard, or an optional 4-speed automatic. The GLS makes the 0-60 jaunt in just under 9 seconds and manages fairly respectable fuel economy numbers of 23 mpg city/31 highway with the manual transmission and 23/30 with the automatic. Safety features include 6 airbags, electronic stability control with traction control and 4-wheel antilock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution. Outside, the GLS displays a crisp look, with an attractive front end and moderate wheel wells. Heated side mirrors are among the standard exterior features, along with 15-inch steel wheels.

SE

Avg. Price: $15,668

The 2012 Hyundai Elantra Touring SE 5-door hatchback comes equipped with a number of standard features not found on the entry-level GLS trim, including leather upholstery, heated front seats, an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. In addition, Hyundai includes a power tilt/slide sunroof, a trip computer and a tilt/telescopic steering wheel with integrated audio and cruise controls. The second-row seat splits 60/40 and folds down, which expands cargo space to 65.3 cubic feet. Other standard features for the 5-passenger SE include air conditioning, power windows and door locks, remote keyless entry and a 6-speaker AM/FM audio system with a CD/MP3 player, SiriusXM satellite radio and USB and auxiliary input jacks. Owners can add Bluetooth as an option.

A 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine powers the front-wheel-drive Elantra Touring SE. The engine produces 138 hp and 136 lb-ft of torque, and mates to either a 5-speed B&M Racing manual sport shifter, which comes standard, or an optional 4-speed automatic. Fuel economy numbers check in at 23 mpg city/31 highway with the manual transmission and 23/30 with the automatic. The SE rides on a sport-tuned suspension and 17-inch alloy wheels. Exterior features include a black chrome grille, front foglights and heated side mirrors with integrated turn signals, as well as new Volcanic Red and Dove White exterior colors. Standard safety features include 6 airbags, electronic stability control with traction control and 4-wheel antilock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution.
