The 2007 Hyundai Elantra is wider and taller than its predecessor featuring an all-new chassis with a fully independent suspension, front and rear stabilizer bars and motor-driven rack-and-pinion steering, and the body is up to 49 percent stiffer. Styled with a more assertive front end, rising beltline, and sculpted body side, the exterior is highlighted by chrome headlight bezels and grille bars, body-colored door handles and mirrors, body-colored rear license plate garnish and integrated bumper fascia, and the taillights echoes the theme of the headlights. A standard power braking system has front and rear discs with a four-sensor, four-channel ABS that includes Electronic Brake Force Distribution. Heated front seats and steering-wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls and telescoping adjustment are available for the first time. A smooth four-speed automatic with a new gated console-mounted floor shifter is available as an option and includes an overdrive lock-up torque converter for higher fuel economy at freeway speeds.
