HYUNDAI ELANTRA IS 10 BEST GREEN CARS BY KELLEY BLUE BOOK
The latest Hyundai Elantra has hit an impressive sales figure of 2,000 units in Malaysia just weeks after its launch. With a long list of global awards, it now gets a new one to add to the list. The 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 petrol prices in the rest of the world (not yet in Malaysia) 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 fuel economy by up to seven percent.
