HYUNDAI ANNOUNCES NAME OF FUTURE FIVE-DOOR
ALL-NEW 2009 ELANTRA TOURING MOVES A POPULAR NAMEPLATE IN A SPORTIER, MORE FUNCTIONAL DIRECTION

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich., 08/08/2007 Hyundai Motor America Vice President of Product Development and Strategic Planning John Krafcik, speaking at the Center of Automotive Research Management Briefing Seminars, announced Hyundais all-new five-door compact will be named Elantra Touring. Elantra Touring will reach dealers in the spring of 2008 as a 2009 model year vehicle. The Touring name captures this all-new models combination of high-function and fun-to-drive character. Elantra Touring will once again extend Elantras product line into the compact five-door segment. (The previous generation also featured a sporty five-door model). Elantra Touring will come with class-leading standard safety technologies, including Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with Traction Control, ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution, and six standard airbags, including side curtain airbags and active front head restraints. The vehicle will be the first compact five-door with standard Electronic Stability Control.[1]

Elantra Touring will have the most interior volume (passenger volume plus cargo space) of any five-door in its class and will be powered by the same fuel-efficient 2.0-liter, in-line four-cylinder found in the Elantra sedan. This newest Hyundai will also feature unique sport suspension and steering tuned for greater response and handling, while offering Hyundais first USB port, along with a standard auxiliary jack and standard XM Satellite Radio. Elantra Tourings competition will include the Toyota Matrix, Dodge Caliber and Mazda3.

Bad news: It's not I30 or Cee'd.
Good News: It doesn't look all that bad.

I know sketches normally exaggerate things, but if the real Elantra Touring has taillights that huge, that'll be another man-made object you can see from space.

It's interesting (I like the amount of standard and available features), but I'm not getting too excited yet.

What do u mean by " bad news: its not i30 or cee'd"? Isn't the i30 going to carry the Elantra badge when on sale in NA?

In fact, my guess is that the i30 Wagon that will be sold in Europe is pretty much the Elantra Touring we'll next next spring--the only difference is that unlike the i30, the US model will only be powered by the 2.0-liter I-4 engine.

I wonder why they registered that name Neos, and why we saw that pic of that logo?? Maybe another product in the mix, though I am doubtful.

My thoughts exactly. It makes sense
