Making Changes to the Elantra Already?

Flattering Changes is Hyundai's New Way. Read this whole article.

"Hyundai's new Elantra is one of the auto industry's most undeniable hits, and the South Korean automaker could afford to let the model ride along unchanged for a couple of years. But it's already making changes. Despite being on sale for less than a year, the 2012 Hyundai Elantra gets new standard equipment that should help improve fuel economy.
All of the compact sedans equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission now get the "Active Eco System," which modifies engine and transmission controls to improve gas mileage by smoothing out throttle response. Pressing the Eco button should improve real-world fuel economy by 7%, Hyundai says. A similar feature is available on the smaller 2012 Hyundai Accent. Fuel economy is still EPA-rated at 29/40 mpg city/highway with either the automatic or manual transmission." --Colin Bird,'s Kicking Tires

Pretty sure the Elantra is doing just fine on it's own two feet, but Hyundai decide to not stop while their ahead in this marathon race of perfecting the car for the consumer. I guess they can't stop thinking of you.
