Hyundai Elantra Overview

The Elantra sedan combines nimble and secure handling with a fairly comfortable ride. The 1.8-liter four-cylinder and six-speed automatic deliver solid performance and a very good 29 mpg overall. For 2014 some versions get a more powerful 2.0-liter four-cylinder. The car is well equipped for the price, the interior is nicely laid out, and rear-seat room is decent. Our major gripe is the pronounced road and engine noise. The GT hatchback is stylish and competent enough but not a standout. Fuel economy of 27 mpg overall is nothing special and the hatchback's loud cabin and stiff ride are drawbacks not found in the sedan.
