TheCarConnection.com finds that the 2009 Hyundai Elantra offers plenty of standard and optional equipment.

Overall, reviewers are impressed with the 2009 Hyundai Elantra. ConsumerGuide proclaims that "a robust feel, attractive prices and Hyundai's strong warranty also make Elantra a recommended pick." MotherProof cuts right to the chase and explains, "What strikes me about the Elantra is the fact that I never say to myself, 'I wish it had ...' I don't miss anything that isn't already there." All versions of the 2009 Hyundai Elantra come standard with power windows, power heated rearview mirrors, power door locks, remote keyless entry with alarm and trunk opener, rear center armrest with cup holders, intermittent windshield wipers, and tilt steering wheel. Edmunds points out that the "base GLS is sparsely equipped with 15-inch steel wheels, keyless entry, a 60/40-split folding rear seat, a tilt steering wheel and full power accessories." The Washington Post reports that "all [Hyundai] Elantras have remote keyless entry and power windows," adding that "air conditioning, cruise control, and CD player are optional" for the Hyundai Elantra GLS but are "standard on SE."

Cars.com is particularly enthusiastic about the 2009 Hyundai's "abundant convenience features, most of which are rarities at this price—things like lighted vanity mirrors, a telescoping steering wheel, a sunglass holder and a rear armrest with cup holders."

The Hyundai Elantra GLS's optional Popular Equipment Package, however, "adds air-conditioning, foglights, cruise control, vanity mirrors and a six-speaker stereo with CD/MP3 player, auxiliary audio jack and satellite radio," Edmunds reports.

For 2009, XM Satellite Radio and USB inputs are newly offered for the audio system. Options include a Bluetooth hands-free system and a package that brings leather seating surfaces, leather door panel inserts, a leather armrest, and heated front seats. A Sun and Sound package combines a power sunroof and a 220-watt premium audio system.

Conclusion

The Hyundai Elantra offers a respectable slate of features, including upgraded audio features for 2009.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
