KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Keith Buglewicz - Updated Date: 7/9/2014

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.

You'll Like This Car If...

The 2015 Hyundai Elantra offers up the style and sophistication of a more expensive car, while still remaining a bargain, proving that you don't have to pay an arm and a leg just to have stylish, feature-laden transportation.

You May Not Like This Car If...

While a game changer when it first came on the scene, many manufacturers have caught up to the Elantra's stuff-for-the-price ratio, while also offering a better overall driving experience. The Elantra's interior also has a few cheap feeling bits, and there's no premium audio option.

What's New for 2015

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.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The 2015 Hyundai Elantra splits the difference between the sporty-driving Mazda3 and Ford Focus, and the more mainstream and comfortable Chevrolet Cruze and Nissan Sentra. A 6-speed manual transmission comes standard, or you can opt for a 6-speed automatic. The transmissions do their best to make the most of the 1.8-liter 4-cylinder's 145 horsepower, but if that's not enough, the Elantra Sport sedan, the Elantra Coupe and the Elantra GT hatchback are all available with the 173-horsepower 2.0-liter engine. Elantra GT, SE and Limited models come with 3-mode, driver-selectable steering, designed to improve feedback in sporty driving. The GT and Elantra Coupe also get stiffer suspensions for more aggressive driving. Yet even in everyday traffic, all Elantras are comfortable and well insulated from road and wind noise, especially for a compact car.

Favorite Features

The 2015 Elantra's Driver Selectable Steering Mode allows the driver to choose from three settings: Comfort, Normal and Sport, and is available on the GT hatchback and the SE and Limited sedans.

One of the more surprising standard features on the Elantra Limited sedan is the heated rear seats. Usually extra-cost even on luxury cars, it's almost unheard of in this segment, and just one more way Hyundai is turning up the heat on the competition.
