The Elantra was redesigned in 2007 and is a part of the new wave of vehicles from Hyundai. For 2009 the already impressive vehicle has received a few improvements to make it even more appealing to young and young-at-heart buyers with some iPod compatibility and a more dynamic drive.
The iPod connectivity is self-explanatory and the new iPod auxiliary input is a welcome addition, as is the USB port. The Elantra also features a redesigned optional audio system with a larger display screen – in part for showing iPod info so drivers need not take their eyes too far of the road.
The added driving dynamics are somewhat more complicated and make the Elantra, especially the pricier SE model, a genuine joy to drive.
