2004 Hyundai Elantra
The Hyundai Elantra is available with 1.6 and 2.0 L gasoline engines and a 2.0 L turbodiesel. North American models are only available with the 2.0L gasoline engine. Although the basic powertrain design has changed little since the second generation, successive improvements have improved fuel economy from an EPA rating of 24/33 to 25/33 and the current 27/34 for manual transmissions, with automatic producing 2-3mpg fewer. Horsepower also improved from 135hp to 138hp and torque from 132 to 136 mainly thanks to the addition of continuously variable valve timing (CVVT) in 2004.
