2015 Hyundai Elantra What's new for 2015? 
2015 Hyundai Elantra

After a more thorough refresh last year, changes for the 2015 Hyundai Elantra mostly poke around the edges. There are three new option packages, plus a smattering of new colors. Otherwise, the Elantra is the same sharp-looking compact we've come to know and love.

The Elantra sedan gets a slight exterior makeover and a new Sport trim. A new 2.0-liter engine replaces the 1.8-liter in the GT, Elantra Coupe and Sport sedan. Other changes include revised wheels, updated navigation radio with Pandora app, Hill Start Assist and Driver Selectable Steering made standard on some trims. The GLS sedan trim is renamed SE, while the Coupe is reduced to a single trim.

In addition to the sedan, the 2013 Elantra is now available as a 2-door Coupe and 5-door hatchback called the GT that replaces the wagon-like Elantra Touring. All are front-wheel drive and offer 5-passenger seating. The Elantra GT is the first Hyundai to feature a driver-selectable steering mode that can make the steering response feel firmer or softer with the touch of a button.

About Hyundai Elantra

After a slight facelift for 2014, the 2015 Hyundai Elantra compact gets only a few tweaks this year, mostly rearranging option packages. But that's OK, as its style, fuel economy, interior space, features, and warranty continue to make it a tough act to follow. Both its quality ratings and resale values are as good as the leading compact cars, and the Elantra's full lineup of sedan, coupe and GT hatchback models is a real threat to compact cars like the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla and Ford Focus. Your practical side will appreciate the 38 mpg on the highway, or you can tickle your inner enthusiast with a sporty 173-horsepower engine. Both camps will appreciate the Elantra's 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.

"Purchased new in Feb. 13....Saw a review that mentioned the mpg not being as good as rated. I would have agreed at first. I think the car has had a break in period. My last long interstate trip I was getting 39.5 mpg without using the ecoboost function. And my long trip through the mountain roads to work I rarely go under 30 mpg. Some reviews say the car accelerates slow, but I have had a lot of vehicles and this is the quickest four cylinder I've owned that wasn't a sports car. So far I have no complaints and you can't beat that warranty. Love the heated seats!!!"

"Great car. Looks good and fun to drive. Averaging about 35 mpg. with combined city & highway driving on 50+ mile commute each way. Over 40 on the highway. Radio and bluetooth work great. Some road noise as expected from a small car. But great space in the cabin and trunk."
