The Hyundai Elantra has been completely redesigned to become one of the most appealing compact sedans. What kind of performance and handling can you expect, though? To find out, we brought the new Elantra to the Edmunds.com test track. Acceleration was tested with 0-60 and quarter-mile tests, while braking was calculated using 60-0. Handling tests included a timed slalom and two trips around a skid pad to generate a lateral acceleration calculation.
