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


Review

I love this car! It rides well, fits all of my stuff, bikes, painting canvas etc and looks great. On the highway, it really cruises and in the city, short stops have felt seamless. For the money, I would (and did) pick this car over all others in its class.


Best Features

Price, safety features, cargo room, XM radio


Worst Features

Acceleration is a little slow.

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


Review

I drove a 2000 Elantra wagon for the last 10yrs. I loved it so I purchased a 2010 touring. This time I got 5sp Manual GSL to save $1200 on purchase price and to get better gas mileage and performace. Paid $15000 vs $11700 ten yrs earlier. I since added Rosta after market cruise $400 and trailer hitch $100. Heated seats cost $250 each aftermarket. Whats better with my new car. Faster, Handeling, brakes,radio,headroom,gas mileage, power door locks on key fob, storage areas. Whats worse, stiff ride,jerkiness of manual shifting vs automatic,tires, no lumbar support. Both cars dent too easily. I love the rear loading area. I call it my covered pickup truck. Getting use to firm ride. Fun to drive


Best Features

Cargo area, lights do shut off automatically after 30 secs, Ipod connection, good pickup, well built


Worst Features

Softer ride, stronger sheet metal, factory cruise with 5sp, low rolling resistance tires like my old Michilin NRG tires. They lasted over 90000 miles and gave me 2 mpg better gas mileage. 6 sp transmission or variable. More quiet. Increase towing from 700 to 1000lbs. Better gas mileage. More colors

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


Review

We bought this because CR is in love with the vehicle. The car (as the i-30 elsewhere in the world) has garnered all kinds of awards over the past 3 years. Compared to my Pontiac Vibe (Corolla), the ET has better fit and finish, excellent visibility, transmission, and is unbelievably quiet. The dash layout is simple and attractive, the Bluetooth is voice interactive and a must have, and the air conditioner is far superior to any other car I have ever seen. The ET is much more comfortable for rear passengers than the new Tucsan. If the reliability holds up as CR thinks it will, I'll be buying Korean products instead of Japanese from now on. Buying this car is a no brainer.


Best Features

Bluetooth speakers are easy to hear and speak; rear seats are quite roomy; storage tray in cargo area is Styrofoam and easy to clean and provides sound dampening; as quiet cabin like a luxury car; easy to change the oil; great visibility all around for the driver; lights turn off after 30 seconds


Worst Features

Give the driver at least one more inch of legroom; put a storage compartment on the lower left side of the dash and one in back of the center console for rear seat passengers; put a mute button on the steering wheel for when phone calls come in on Bluetooth; don't put Hankook junk tires on the car

Review

Wow! Look out Toyota and Honda. If you are considering a corolla or a civic I would recommend you stop by a Hyundai dealership and test drive the Elantra Touring. Excellent build,features and overall design. This vehicle is a european Hyundai with german design. Ride is excellent and the ESC, traction control, six airbags and 4 wheel anti-lock disc brakes are standard. Add the 5 year, 60,000 mile warranty and you can see why Hyundai recently outperformed Toyota in customer satisfation. This vehicle is well thought out. This is my first Hyundai and previously drove a Volvo S80. Volvo may want to look in there rearview mirror. Hyundai is right behind them.


Best Features

Safety features and overall build quality. USB and I-Pod, storage and instrument layout. Price


Worst Features

None really

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


Review

I've logged about 7,000 miles on my Touring, and I've got nothing but praise for it. The cargo area allows me to comfortably transport two dogs (one large, the other medium sized). Despite the abundant cargo space, the car still feels small and handles like the sport-tuned compact hatch it is. Build quality is very tight just like the past two Hyundai's I've owned. Acceleration is surprisingly satisfactory with the MT given the engine's horsepower rating and aged design. The best part of the deal is that I am getting consistently above the published mileage ratings. With the cruise control set at 70mph I push 33.5-34 mpg on an 1.5 hour trip, and at 76mpg I get 32-32.5mpg. Great car!


Best Features

Tail-light design, no under steer, mileage, blue radio display, integrated blue tooth, seat warmers, cargo room, handling, etc.


Worst Features

The electronic assisted steering feels odd at first compared to normal hydraulic systems. "Leather" steering wheel is more like rubber. Need electronic power seat for driver at least. I wish we had the center console from the European market!
