In December, Hyundai Auto Canada Corp. flew a bunch of automotive journalists to San Diego to test out the Hyundai Elantra. Steve Kelleher, Hyundai Canada’s chief executive told the journalists that he predicted that the Hyundai Elantra will be the best selling car in Canada in 2011. While such a confident claim isn’t unique among workers at their own car company, what is unique however is that (so far at least) what Steve Kelleher predicted has come true.
When the industry’s January sales figures arrived earlier this month–pronouncing Elantra as the best selling vehicle, of any type, in Canada–Mr. Kelleher admitted he was tempted to send the group of journalists an “I told you so” note.” (http://www.montrealgazette.com/business/Hyundai+gobble+market+share/4320281/story.html)
Though I doubt Mr. Kelleher actually sent the automotive reporters an “I told you so” note, the fact that Kelleher’s prediction came true bespeaks to the quality of the Hyundai Elantra. Getting not only mostly positive, but stellar reviews, it’s easy to see what the Hyundai Elantra is selling so well.
The i40 is the first large family car where Hyundai specifically attracted the European market. The Hyundai i40 has some cool new features, such as: a heated steering wheel, heated and reclining available for both the front and back seats, and a “de-mist system” which automatically spots and removes mist located on the windshield.
“The i40 also demonstrates the advances Hyundai is making towards being a leader in eco-technology. The 1.7 litre diesel engine emits 113 g/km CO2 just beating other manufacturers to the best-in-class figure. As a comparison the Ford Mondeo 1.6 DV6 TDCi achieves 114 g/km, the VW Passat 1.6 TDI Blue motion achieves 114 g/km and the Peugeot 508 1.6 e-HDi saloon achieves 115 g/km.” (http://www.girlracer.co.uk/motorsport/anna-livesey/8711-hyundai-i40-to-star-at-geneva-but-will-the-veloster-steal-its-thunder.html)
The i40 also comes with a five year warranty which means five years of health checks for the car, five years of unlimited mileage warranty and five years of roadside assistance.
The i40 is one of the best environmentally friendly cars. The i40 also has a sporty sleek look, uses a lot of miles per gallon, and uses the best in car technology at an affordable price.
