2007 Hyundai Elantra Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought a white 07 GLS 5 speed stick with the $1500.00 option (ac,cd,crusie,175 watt sound with 6 speakers,ect) for $14800.00! What a bargin!! From a safty standpoint alone where else can you get a car with 4 wheel disc breaks, abs,electronic break force distribution, AND 6 (yes thats six!) standard airbags for under 15 grand? Not to mention all the other standard goodies included, the excellent fuel economy, super low emessions, power everything, outstanding warranty, and all built to great quality. Hyundai has come a long way and has come to par with the Japanese automakers. The old public perception will still keep resale values down but that is the only knock as far as Im concerened.


Favorite Features

Fuel economy,Ultra Low Emissions, Standard equipment, Safety, Overall value, Warranty, Fun to own and drive! Excellently redesigned


Suggested Improvements

Lose that big radio antenna for a more streamlined smaller one, The old Beta 2.0l engine is getting a bit outdated allthough still reliable, Going to a stainless steel exaust would be nice.

2007 Hyundai Elantra Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Although I just bought the vehicle, I can tell that it is a good choice. Unlike some suggestions, it felt very stable on the road at speeds over 90 MPH. The standard features and looks are great, as is the price.Add all this to the warranty, and you'll find yourself getting a great deal.Compared to competition, Hyundai offers more for a reasonable price. Compared to the Corolla, it has better looks, options, and is more sophisticated. Compared to the Mazda3, it is a smoother ride and also has more options to offer. Finally, I found the Civic quite pricy and the looks on the Elantra are better. Add all this to better safety features and warranty, and you'll find that this is a good choice.


Favorite Features

the looks, standard options, interior lighting, storage space, interior space, safety features, good stereo, relatively quiet, and the fuel economy isn't bad. The EPS gave me a sense of security and stability on the interstate highway


Suggested Improvements

Simple things like coin holders. Lumbar support would be a good addition. Maybe the glove box could have been slightly bigger

Review

I am very pleased with the car. Very quiet on the road, good but not great acceleration, handles very nimbly, will hold 90 mph with seemingly no effort or noise.


Favorite Features

Driveability, low road noise, price compared to class, solid doors, blue background instruments look cool, comfortable seats, lots of rear leg room and head room everywhere, excellent stereo with a lot of speakers, folding rear seats and amazing trunk space. They get this by raising the rear end.


Suggested Improvements

One complaint - driver position and arm rests. They made the car seem bigger by expanding the doors outward, which is great for a big person but for me it takes my arms off the rests. If you can afford it get the package with telescoping steering wheel which would solve the problem.

2007 Hyundai Elantra Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I wanted a small, well equipped, commuter car with good gas mileage. I also considered the Honda Civic LX & Mazda M3 I-Touring. If you want style and performance get the Mazda. Excellent long term reputation and a name brand, buy the Civic. For me the M3 was too too small inside and not as comfortable. The Civic was at least $2000 more with fewer standard features and has questionable interior styling. The Elantra is very comfortable, quiet, has fine performance for a small commuter and the warranty far surpasses the other two. With side curtain airbags and four wheel ABS disc brakes it is a leader in safety. Time will tell for long term quality but the longer warranty mitigates this risk.


Favorite Features

Overall value; warranty; extensive standard features including 4 wheel ABS disc brakes, audio controls on steering wheel, side & side curtain airbags, alloy wheels; interior room; interior styling and blue lighting; comfort and quiet; gas mileage; turn radius; ease of handling.


Suggested Improvements

Better exterior style; needs a blade or window antennae.

Review

My wife and I have owned a 2007 Elantra GLS since Oct, 2006. So far, we are delighted with this car; it has an unrivaled value/price ratio. Its fuel economy is impressive: 28/36 mpg (8.4/6 l/100 km) city/hwy. According to the EPA 2007 Fuel Economy Guide, the Elantra is 2nd among non-hybrid mid-size cars. We love our Elantra because it handles great, it's *roomy* and exquisitely appointed. The car is very quiet, though engine noise is evident at high speeds (>75 mph/120 km/h). On the highway, our 5-spd handles just like an automatic: we can cruise/pass without down-shifting! The Elantra is a high-quality, affordable, fuel-efficient car with lots of features and all-around good performance.


Favorite Features

1. Quality - this car is refined and well designed 2. Fuel economy 3. Safety - 6 air bags standard 4. Interior/trunk/rear seat space 5. Lots of storage compartments 6. Pull-down cup-holder in the rear seat 7. 5-yr bumper-to-bumper warranty


Suggested Improvements

1. Trunk hinges/arms should not invade trunk (e.g., like Mazda3) 2. Bigger glove box 3. More space between clutch and brake pedals 4. A six-speed manual transmission (to avoid high RPMs on 5th gear)

Review

This car is well-equipped, and I really appreciate how much attention was given to the detail and accessories in this car. The sound system is fabulous. I would recommend the Elantra as a really nice surprise. Just sit in it and you'll see. Even the dash is attractive. Good job. Hyundai!!


Favorite Features

My favorite features are the design, the details on the door, the roomy trunk and the radio.


Suggested Improvements

I've collected cassets over the years and I will add one, so I can drive and listen.

Review

This is my second Elantra. My first was a 2002. The 07 is a beautiful car. The steering is great and the acceleration is much better than the 02. The larger interior space is a welcome change. The automatic shifter is really cool. I purchased the premium package with the sunroof. 1st one sold in my state. Lots of heads turn as I drive by. the car has some cool lines, and the blue lights in the dash are easy on the eye and very appealing. The styling and features are better than that of the Sonata. Truly a great car!


Favorite Features

blue lights, body style, comfort and safety, steering and brakes.


Suggested Improvements

maybe a bit more power??

Review

In Sept we brought a 06 Elantra and were very happy with it, untill it was totaled a week ago. We were not injured ,much to the suprize of the local EMS people.I am now sold on Hyundai. Returned to same dealer and feel in love with a Black 07 SE. Lots of room ,great looks and a ton of standard features. Best of all got a great deal on the cars. Even with under a 100 miles on it already getting 30 mpg.


Favorite Features

Great looks and preformance for the money


Suggested Improvements

nothing so far
