About Hyundai Elantra

The revamped 2017 Elantra marks the sixth generation of Hyundai's compact sedan, and it returns in prime form to battle against other best-selling rivals like the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla and Nissan Sentra. As with the rest of Hyundai's lineup, the Elantra boasts stylish looks, premium amenities and a class-leading warranty that includes 10 years/100,000 miles for the powertrain. The standard 2017 Hyundai Elantra has a good blend of refinement, eager driving manners and efficiency, while a forthcoming Eco model promises even greater fuel economy. A late-arriving Sport model gives the Elantra something it lacked in standard and Eco trims -- brisk performance and nimble handling. All Elantras offer sophisticated design and surprising features at a great value.

"In winter snow, OK. But too much...like this year...I got stuck once.....so snow tires are a good idea. I got 46 mpg on the highway going through Ca, Az and Idaho. IN Boise I average 30 mpg city. Use regular octane gas since nothing less is bad for the engins...and should not be used. All in all, a very good vehicle with great reliability. Have not had to add oil to it...oil consumption is very low or not at all."

"Manual Turbo Sport. Awesome! Really fun to drive. If you want and Elantra you need to get one of these. The turbo is nice but not very quick. The suspension is really solid and very rigid. The interior and exterior are excellent considering the price. Mine is a manual and I love it. I added the tech package because I wanted the sunroof and extra safety features. If you drive one Im pretty sure you will be smiling."

"I got the Value Edition in Electric Blue MSRP $21,085 (before price haggling). DON'T GET AN SE WITH TECH GO TO A VALUE EDITION BECAUSE IT GIVES YOU MORE FOR THE SAME PRICE!!!! and it adds so many things that you won't find anywhere else. At this trim it comes with power driver's seat with lumbar support, auto dimming rearview mirror with homeLink and compass, tilt/side sun roof along with from other trims 3 stage front heated seats, blind spot detection with rear cross traffic alert, dual auto climate control, door handle approach lights, proximity with push button start along with a hands free smart trunk, leather wrapped steering wheel/shifter, stylish LED DRLs, rear view camera with bending trajectory lines that turn with the steering wheel, Android Auto/Apple Carplay, blue tooth, cruise control, HD FM/XM/AM with 40 presets combined. The handling is good for how it was maid to be, and people admire its beauty when I drive it around. At least give it a chance and give it a test drive and it will most likely make you top list. To me it is the car that feels like the manufacturer built it based on me."
