The Elantra delivers the roominess and fuel economy to compete in this crowded segment, but it fell short in refinement and performance when this generation debuted. For 2020, it received a round of improvements that improved ride comfort and reduced engine noise.
User-friendliness is an Elantra strong point, aided by a relatively spacious interior. Open and airy feeling inside, the cabin features a broad cockpit and one of the most spacious rear seats in the class. Controls are super simple, combining familiar buttons and knobs with a touch screen for the infotainment system. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are available.
