2010 Hyundai Elantra Touring SE 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

We recently traded our Sonata (2010) for this Elantra Touring. The Sonata was (and is) a great car, but we wanted more rearward visibility and less bulk. This car fills the bill, and adds a fun/sporty factor along with it. So far, we have really enjoyed the car and look forward to a lot of pleasant miles together.


Best Features

Styling, seat firmness, outward visibility.


Worst Features

A few more ponies under the hood would be welcome. The brakes are very touchy, so tone down the assist. The gas pedal requires a firm push to move it down, so lighten up on that, please.

2010 Hyundai Elantra Touring SE 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This was my first new car purchase - I've had it for about two months now and am loving it. Averaging 35 mpg mixed driving. I'm 6'3" and have plenty of head and leg room. Love the blue color. Overall, I'd say it's a great value at about $19.8k OTD.


Best Features

Design, nice sound system, storage space, dash lighting, handling, price.


Worst Features

Rear visibility is poor, button on key fob to open hatch, beige interior for more colors, auto-headlights.

2010 Hyundai Elantra Touring SE 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

A really fine car - great driving dynamics. Superior design, finish, and assembly using average materials to control cost. Very obviously well engineered - check the engine well layout. Zero rattles/extraneous noise in my car. Comments on issues others have mentioned: "dead steering" - not really, just sort of a "notch" at top dead center which helps give this car great tracking at speed on the highway - on 2 lane twisties, not an issue rough ride: firm suspension, beefy roll bars, and 45 profile tires do not give you a Bentley - get the GLS or get the SE and replace the 17" rims with 16" or 15" (I am considering this - but the cornering sure is fun as is) ugly: no - just restrained..


Best Features

Clutch/b&m shifter offer feel as good as any . Really roomy. No buffeting from sunroof. Very low wind/road noise altogether. Modest total power but engine revs willingly and pulls well from low revs 30 mpg in mixed suburban driving and improving - computer and "by hand" closely agree.


Worst Features

Wish I could have bought the European 1.6 cdi - or could use a 6th gear. The 2.0 has enough grunt to drop back 500 rpm on the highway ... what a car this would be with longer legs The ET one does more things well than most If the long term quality is as good as I hope, this will be a fine car to own

2010 Hyundai Elantra Touring GLS 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I am in love with this car! I was actually in the market for a new Santa Fe, but I wanted to keep my payment low. As an alternative (I have two big dogs so I needed a car that would suit them comfortably), the touring is perfect for my needs. Lots of interior space, especially with the back seats down. The car is sporty and fun to drive, economical (so far, I'm averaging 25 mpg) and has nice eye appeal. I chose the chili pepper red (my first red car!) with the tan/taupe interior: really nice combo. The bluetooth and XM/Sirius system is great. Excellent safety features, unbeatable price, and a quiet ride. I would highly recommend this car to anyone.


Best Features

Love all of the storage compartments. The refrigerated glove box is awesome. Dash instrumentation is nicely laid out with thoughtful ergonomic design and calming, ambient blue lighting.


Worst Features

The car is a bit slow to pick up speed, but I really don't consider this much of a negative. It zips around wonderfully, is responsive, and offers a smooth ride. I really don't have any complaints at all.
