ElantraXD - Hyundai Elantra on KBB Green Car List
  • Hyundai Elantra on KBB Green Car List

    More praise for the Hyundai Elantra. This time from KBB. Here's the Hyundai Press Release on it and a link to the KBB site.

    The 2012 Hyundai Elantra has been named one of the 10 Best Green Cars for 2012 by Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com for the second consecutive year. In this annual list, especially timely this year due to rising gas prices and just in time for Earth Day 2012, the kbb.com editors present a variety of fuel-efficient vehicles worthy of buyers’ consideration.

    “The elusive 40 mpg mark is hit and miss for non-hybrid cars, but for the 2012 Hyundai Elantra it's an easy target,” said kbb.com editors. “The Elantra obtains 40 highway mpg in all trim levels thanks to its fuel-efficient 4-cylinder engine, all while looking good in its wavy sheet metal and offering value with its low entry price.”

    Standout fuel efficiency alone is not enough to win a spot on kbb.com’s annual 10 Best Green Cars list. Kbb.com’s editors also weighed factors like value, features and comfort in putting together this year’s collection of exceptional efficiency experts.

    “With its 29 mpg city and 40 mpg highway standard fuel economy rating, Elantra is a perfect vehicle for consumers looking for an affordable solution to rising gas prices,” said Scott Margason, director, Product Planning, Hyundai Motor America. “Elantra is one of the vehicles at the core of Hyundai’s fuel economy strategy. In the first quarter of 2012, 39 percent of all Hyundai vehicles sold achieved 40 mpg on the highway thanks in large part to Elantra’s continued success.”

    All Elantra models achieve the milestone 40 MPG highway fuel economy rating, along with the Accent, Sonata Hybrid and the Veloster. The 2012 North American Car of the Year Elantra adds an ActiveECO System for 2012 that modifies engine and transmission control to smooth out throttle response and increase real-world fuel economy by up to seven percent.

    Not bad, man, looks like you're making it your own! Only thing I would recommend is ditching the Dodge front plate ASAP and find something that suits

    If I went the Fatmat route, how much would 50 sq ft get me? I don't plan on doing it all at once, but the ultimate goal would be the inside of the rear
