2012 Elantra Coupe Audio System Specs

Quote:
Elantra Coupe is available with two audio systems. Standard is a 172-watt AM/FM/Satellite Radio/CD/MP3 audio system with six-speakers and iPod®/USB/auxiliary input jacks. A 360-watt system with external amplifier is optional with the SE Technology package.


Touch-screen navigation is available on SE trim and includes a high-resolution 7.0-inch screen and voice-activation by headliner-mounted microphone. The sound system plays compact discs, accesses digital music files via Bluetooth streaming audio or allows driver and passenger to access their personal listening devices through the iPod/USB/auxiliary inputs. Bluetooth audio wirelessly streams music from select mobile phones to the head unit. The XM Satellite Radio interface is also integrated into the navigation unit and features channel logos, real-time NavTraffic and XM Data services, such as XM NavWeather®, XM Stock Ticker and XM Sports Ticker. The system also integrates a rear-view camera, which cannot be found on the Honda Civic Coupe or Kia Koup. Users can even upload personal pictures from a USB rather than a CD to be displayed on the system’s home screen.


Man it almost seems as if the new trend in car is to provide a TFT display for the radio and other things needed as well, sounds a lot like the new dodge dart and civic with the TFT displays!

Yea I also find that there is a growing trend using TFT displays for the audio. Not sure why though. Why not just keep the regular radio and not waste space for displays. Just offer a double din for those who really want a real display.

Garage
I think they're using touchscreen displays for a few reasons: only one part and no moving parts (aka fewer things to break). The other reason I think is that the OEM can put multiple controls in the same space without needing dedicated dashboard real estate. Fewer wires and cables, makes the car lighter etc.
