No information available.


Next month will see two launches from Hyundai, the 'all-new' Elantra and Santa Fe.

The range starts at £10,999 for the 1.6 Si and reaches £13,999 for the 2.0 CDX.

Replacing the current Lantra the Elantra is a completely new offering and for the first time includes a five-door option. On-sale data is March 1.

Longer, wider and taller than the previous model, the Elantra is larger than the Vauxhall Vectra, Nissan Primera, Volvo S40 and Toyota Avensis, but undercuts them all on price.

Standard across the range are anti-lock brakes, driver, passenger and side airbags, air conditioning, radio/CD player, electric windows, seat-belt pretensioners, three 3-point rear seatbelts, power steering, central locking and engine immobiliser. The CDX has traction control, cruise control, climate control and leather seats.

Until the end of March, all Elantras come with free servicing for three years/30,000 miles.

Elantra prices (OTR):

  • 1.6 Si five-door - £10,999
  • 1.6 Gsi four/five door - £12,199
  • 2.0 CDX four/five door - £13,999

    Styled in America, with a Porsche-designed gearbox, the new Santa Fe will be available in March.

    The SUV is Hyundai's first 4x4 vehicle available in the UK. The Santa Fe features permanent four-wheel drive and is available with a choice of an all-new 2.4 engine or 2.7 V6-litre engine mated to an 'H-tronic' automatic gearbox, developed with Porsche, offering a manual and auto gearbox option in one.

    The 2.4 will cost £15,999 and £17,999 for the 2.7 V6. Both get driver and passenger airbags, anti-lock brakes, power steering, air con, CD/radio with RDS, electric front and rear windows and remote controlled anti-theft alarm.
