An undeniable bargain at first glance, the Elantra is a well-rounded economy car. If it turns out to be as reliable as Hyundai's warranty suggests, there will be few reasons to spend more on its Japanese competitors.
Solidly built, powerful engine for its class, plenty of standard features, ultralow price tag.
Poor offset crash test score, ABS available only as a package option.

Hyundai has added a GT sedan to the lineup. It has the same price and equipment as the GT hatchback, save for a rear wiper, and it gets a body-color rear spoiler. The hatchback will wear a black rear lip spoiler, and both GTs will come with floor mats. Meanwhile, the value-packed GLS sedan remains unchanged, except ABS will be slightly more affordable, as it has been added to the Accessory Group 3 options package, which costs $925. Finally, Hyundai announced that it had misstated the horsepower ratings for all of the models in its lineup -- the Elantra is now rated at 135 hp, rather than 140, though the engine itself is unchanged.
