The Elantra has been equipped with the perfect engine, suspension system and driving technologies to comfortably cope with every kind of New Zealand road. So whether you’re doing errands around town, driving a long distance or negotiating uneven road surfaces - the Elantra has got what it takes to deliver an enjoyable, efficient and safe drive.
The Elantra can set pulses racing, with a responsive 2.0 litre 16-valve 4-cylinder petrol engine that delivers 112/kW of power at 6,200 rpm and 192 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. Dual Overhead Camshafts (DOHC) boost performance, while Continuously Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) improves efficiency and reduces emissions.
No matter how long or short your journey, a 6-speed electronic automatic transmission makes for easy, pleasurable driving.
Air vents within the front bumper redirect air to the outside of the front wheels, cleverly helping to improve performance by reducing drag and air turbulence.
Electric-motor driven power steering puts you in total control, perfectly complementing the Elantra’s powerful engine and smooth transmission.
Refined suspension means that the Elantra provides an even more comfortable ride, whether you’re cornering at speed or driving on bumpy surfaces. The front has MacPherson strut suspension with coil springs, gas-filled shock absorbers and an anti-roll stabiliser bar. The rear has coupled torsion beam suspension, also with forgiving coil springs and gas-filled shock absorbers.
