Only a month after being named the 2012 North American car of the year at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the Hyundai Elantra has won the 2012 Canadian Car of the Year award.
Steve Kelleher, Hyundai Auto Canada president, said the win was a “vindication for all the effort Hyundai designers and engineers invested into the project.”
The Elantra gets great gas millage with 4.9L / 100km highway (40 MPG) and 6.9L / 100km (29 MPG) in the city. Running a 1.8L four-cylinder engine that produces 148 horsepower.
This is the second time that Hyundai has won both awards in the same year back to back in the past four years. The Genesis luxury sedan earned both titles in 2009.
