It is now called Hyundai Elantra 2011: First Look

The all-new Hyundai Elantra is now available in Singapore, many months after it was launched in Korea. *at last* Looking at the crowd at Komoco’s HQ at Alexandra this afternoon, this car has already generated quite a bit of hype without any tv spots or radio ads.

I’m pleasantly surprised. Another game changer? Let the pictures say those thousand words. Too tired to type!

  1. I went to test drive this also. Why doesn’t the SG model come with a configuration which includes bluetooth, GPS and rear camera? The US models do.

    The Chevy cruze, which is presumably in the same class as this comes with Navtrak and all its bells and whistles. How I wish the Elantra had it! I’m slightly disappointed.

    • Hi there.

      About those extra freebies, you actually could discuss with your SE to get them to provide for you.

      And yea, I always hear stories about how KMC loves to mark up the prices of their new models to test the market. Just hold out for a while before making up your mind.
