I really love this car dude! The Elantra is part of one of the most revolutionary changes we've seen in the automotive industry in recent years. Another fact that may be of interest is that now, with this new design which is the 5th generation of the Elantra, moved up to give real competition to the Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Fusion and Mazda 3, as the previous generation was not even close to tickle them. Amazing isn't it?

I agree, this Hyundai is great, has an excellent autonomy, comes with the latest technology gadgets and its price is relatively cheap, but the Elantra has some issues too, is not a suitable car for tall people (like me), when you are behind the steering you can feel how slow it is, especially when you are overtaking another car, there it is when it loses its sport feeling.

yep, I see your point and this isn't the first time I hear about those complaints with respect to the Elantra. But they also have a car for those worried for those concerns, and its name is Hyundai Sonata, it is bigger, more spacious and more powerful, and of course, more expensive too smiley its exterior design is pretty similar, but being honest, I prefer the Elantra design, it has something that makes it looks sexier.

The 4 door Elantra is too much better, cooler and modern, I really don't like the Sonata, many people think they are very similar but I see them completely different. I had the opportunity to handle a Elantra Limited Tech Package on highway and it is smooth, economical, very comfortable, but as somebody said, its acceleration is poor and also I didn't like the sound system quality.
Looking for some affordable car for my son!
