Auto Journalists honour Hyundai Elantra with two awards

The All-new Hyundai Elantra and Hyundai Elantra Sport  have  been  awarded the best new small car title and the best new sports/performance car title by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC).

First introduced in 1991, the Elantra compact sedan,  now in its sixth generation has sold over 500,000 units in Canada and more than 10 million units worldwide.

Meanwhile, the Sport version is new to the Hyundai line-up and stands as the most powerful Elantra model ever produced.
A statement issued by the company said: “We could not be more thrilled to receive these awards. It’s especially rewarding for the engineers and designers who worked tirelessly to bring to market the best vehicle Hyundai could possibly develop,” said Don Romano, President and CEO of Hyundai Auto Canada Corp.

 He added: “The Elantra is our highest volume car and one of the best-selling cars consumers have decided to park in their driveways. Winning an AJAC award for both the Elantra and Elantra Sport demonstrates that our customers made an exceptional choice.”
