#1 of 3 Hyundai Elantra Turbo Chances for Future? 2013 maybe?
Sep 18, 2011 (9:21 am)
I have the 2011 Elantra. If this had a turbo engine in it this would be a phenomenal car.
Anyone heard of any plans of bringing out one anytime in the next couple years?

With Hyundai's fuel economy push, I'd think we'd see a hybrid before a turbo. I'd be happy to be wrong, though.

On that note, I did see this on the Edmunds preview.
"The 2013 Hyundai Veloster will offer a choice of two engines. The standard Veloster will come with a 1.6-liter direct-injected inline-4 with 138 horsepower, while the new Turbo model will sport a turbocharged version of the 1.6 generating around 208 hp."
Since they share platforms, maybe we will get the engine on the Elantra as well. That would get me easily trading in my 2011 for a 2013 Elantra Turbo if they offered it. 208hp would be a LOT for that platform
