2011 Hyundai Elantra - The Engine

It doesn't matter what trim level you decide to buy when you get a 2011 Hyundai Elantra - you'll still get 29 mpg city and 40 mpg highway. You also will get a great engine. The 2011 Elantra comes with a 1.8 liter four-cylinder engine that gives you 148 horsepower and 131 pound-feet of torque in ULEV. If you prefer, you can also get a PZEV variant but you will lose one lb-ft torque and three horsepower over the regular version. Either version you choose will give you more power and better fuel economy than the competition such as Mazda3 or Honda Civic. 
Hyundai went with a tradition multi-point fuel injection system instead of a direct-injection program. Why? Because it would keep costs down, and those lower costs can be passed on to customers. There are some clever tricks used to make sure that the engine will be as efficient as possible. These tricks are things such as dual constant variable valve timing and electronic throttle control. It helps keep the engine running as efficiently as possible while giving you great gas mileage.
