High Value Meets High Fashion

All-new for 2017, the Hyundai Elantra isn't just one of the most stylish entries in the compact car segment, it's one of the best-looking sedans on the road. But it also offers plenty of features for the money, competitive resale values and the best warranty in the segment, qualifying it as one of the best values in its class. In addition to the sedan's attractive new look, the comfortable, efficient Elantra also boasts a bevy of new premium convenience and safety features.

A Commuter Car with Kick

From our 2017 Hyundai Elantra full review: "The 2017 Elantra does an admirable job blending comfort, efficiency and even some sportiness. This, despite the fact that it doesn't have the most powerful engine or the most sophisticated suspension among compact sedans."

Comparison Test

The Hyundai Elantra was one of four compact sedans we drove 400 roundtrip miles from KBB's headquarters over freeways and twisting roads to San Diego County, as part of our 2016 Compact Car Comparison.

Build and Price

Hyundai Elantra pricing starts at just below $18,000 with destination charges, and fully optioned models can climb to right around $28,000. Build and price your own 2017 Hyundai Elantra right here at KBB.com to unlock its Fair Purchase Price, 5-Year Cost to Own and more.

Hyundai Elantra Sport

Looking for an Elantra with a little more oomph? Hyundai has announced a new model that will be the most powerful Elantra available. The 2017 Elantra Sport, expected to go on sale at the end of the year, uses a 200-horsepower engine, a choice of manual or automatic transmission and unique styling cues, and will be the only Elantra with independent rear suspension.

A Dozen Choices

It's hard to settle on one car in a segment as competitive as this. The Hyundai Elantra has a lot to offer, but vehicles like the venerable Honda Civic and sporty Mazda3 have longer histories and grander reputations with the American buying public.
