Pleasantly surprised.
This is my first Hyundai vehicle after much research and i am pleased with my purchase. There are great discounts on this model in my case 3k discount. I wanted a reliable comfortable car with decent room and great gas mileage. The Value Edition Elantra fit the bill. My test drive revealed an uncommonly quiet and smooth ride for the class. Im 6 ft tall and was able to easily find a comfortable driving position. Once warmed up engine was smooth and quiet for a four cylinder. The performance for me was more than satisfactory as im not heavy on the gas. If i wanted more performance i would have opted for the sport version but you also pay more for it in gas and insurance. The sport driving mode gives this car a decent amount of pep if you want it but you take a hit in gas mileage. Regular mode is just fine with me. Ive been averaging 34 mpg in mixed driving. I hit 41 mpg in just hwy driving at one point. In addition this car has a real spare tire, a hand brake as opposed to electronic , real knobs for tuning , volume and other functions! Apple car play works flawlessly as with Bluetooth and phone functions. The fit and finish are top notch. I am impressed with Hyundai and will likely buy another one fir my next vehicle.
check it out for yourself
the vehicle is awesome.great ride and comfortable on long trips.handling is superb.but had my first problem ever was the lights went out on me when i used my turn signals.and it happened at night.now my elantra is in the shop having a turn signal harness installed.havent even made my first payment yet.very frustrating.
Way Better Than I Would Have Thought
A 2018 Elanta was the last car that I thought I would buy. I owned a 2008 Elantra which was the only new car that I could afford at the time. It was an okay budget car, but I have driven golf carts with better driving dynamics. Ten years later, I wanted something more upscale with better road manners. My research led me to believe that the Civic or Jetta would be my best choices. But the Civic looks to me like a weird insect and the seats are really low. And the new Jetta has promise, but the old maxim of not buying a redesigned car in its first year lead me away. I was thinking of buying the current Jetta model assuming that I could negotiate a great deal on a discontinued car. Then I was on vacation and the rent-a-car place allowed me to choose which car I wanted in the aisle. I saw the new Elantra and thought it would be interesting to see what it is like to drive. I was totally blown away. Inside the car is really nicely designed and looks sporty. The value edition feels like a luxury car. And the way it rides is so improved over previous models. It is quiet and holds the road well. A number of the professional reviews say that it is not fun to drive, which compared to other new compact cars on the market (Golf, Civic, Mazda 3) is probably correct, but I think it is fun enough. It’s certainly a refined driving experience. Gas mileage is really good. I’m getting over 45 MPG on highway drives. The engine is a little slow at lower speeds but not at all a problem on the highway when you are already over 50+ miles per hour. I would recommend taking it for a test drive. Hyundai seems to realize that once you drive you, you will actually like it. I guess that is why they are giving out $40 gift cards with test drives. Hey, that is nice of them as well. I suggest calling around to various dealers to get the best price. It was not too hard for me to get $4500 off MSRP for the value edition.

Hyundai Elantra vs. Honda Civic

The Civic is certainly one of the best small sedans on the road today. It has an excellent ride quality, a roomy interior, swift acceleration and sharp handling. But it has a few downsides, too. Option packages on the Civic tend to drive the price up quickly, especially compared to the Elantra. For drivers who look toward the future, the Elantra comes with a more impressive warranty upfront.

Hyundai Elantra vs. Kia Forte

The Elantra and Forte are closely related, so there's not much variation. They both have multiple available powertrains, strong value propositions and appealing interiors. The Kia Forte can save you a few hundred dollars depending on which trim level you choose, but we prefer the Elantra's interior design. It could very well just come down to which car's styling you like better.

Hyundai Elantra vs. Toyota Corolla

For decades, the Toyota Corolla has been one of the most popular cars sold in America. Like the Elantra, it has a long list of standard features and represents a good value. It's also very roomy inside. Also like the Elantra, though, the Corolla isn't as exciting or engaging to drive as class leaders. Fuel economy is merely average for the class, too. We wouldn't advise anyone against the Corolla, but it's not our first choice either. You'll probably like the Elantra more.

Is the Hyundai Elantra a good car?

The small sedan segment has a wide range of cars with a wide range of virtues. The Elantra stands out with its competitive price, premium-looking cabin and affordable upgrades. The interior surfaces in the Elantra feel high-quality for the class, and the car's ride on the highway is smooth. Rivals such as the Honda Civic and the Mazda 3 are sportier, but both are more expensive.

Does the Hyundai Elantra have good MPG?

The fuel economy ratings for the Elantra differ depending on which engine you choose. The base engine, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder, gets three different ratings depending on trim level: 33 mpg combined (29 city/38 highway) or 32 mpg combined (28 city/37 highway) with the six-speed automatic transmission, and 29 mpg combined (26 city/36 highway) with the six-speed manual. The Elantra Eco with the turbo 1.4-liter engine gets the best of the Elantra range — 35 mpg combined (32 city/40 highway). The Elantra Sport, with its turbocharged 1.6-liter engine, gets 29 mpg combined (26 city/33 highway) with the seven-speed automatic and 25 mpg combined (22 city/30 highway) with the six-speed manual. The Eco's numbers are the most competitive, while most of the other Elantra ratings fall behind segment leaders.

Does the Hyundai Elantra have good resale value?

If you're ready to buy, you're probably wondering about the Hyundai Elantra's resale value. How much will a 2018 Hyundai Elantra be worth in two or five years — or whenever you decide to sell? Check out the Edmunds True Cost to Own (TCO) calculator. It includes projected annual depreciation over the first five years of ownership based on Edmunds' robust market transaction data.

True Cost to Own calculator

The 2018 Hyundai Elantra helps to prove that compact sedans have come a long way. Once they might have been little more than barebones, budget-minded transportation, but the current crop offers a lot of quality and value for the money. In order to stand out in this crowd, Hyundai packed the Elantra with features, making for a good-looking small car that does more than you might expect.

Last year's complete redesign improved everything about the Elantra, so Hyundai hasn't done much to change the formula for 2018. The interior is still comfortable and surprisingly quiet, with well-laid-out and easy to understand controls. Space is used efficiently, with lots of clever compartments for small items and enough room to carry adults in the rear seat.

There are six trim levels available. The base SE comes with a pretty limited set of features, and really is the budget option. You get a stereo, Bluetooth phone connectivity, air-conditioning, and a manually adjustable driver seat: just what's needed and not much more. Move up to the SEL, and you get alloy wheels, disc brakes at all four corners, and technologies such as blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and, just added for 2018, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

The Value Edition adds keyless entry with push-button start, a hands-free trunk, dual-zone climate control and a power sunroof. Finally, there's the Limited, which Hyundai has loaded with leather, LED lights, three USB ports, and can be upgraded with a premium stereo, heated rear seats, and a full set of active driver aids such as adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist.

If the Elantra has a weakness, it's the performance of its base engine. All four of these trims come with a 2.0-liter four cylinder making 147 horsepower. That means these Hyundai Elantra trims are slower than average for the class. Still, they return good fuel economy, and there are two alternate engines for buyers looking for more grunt but who still want that Hyundai value.

The Eco trim is equipped similarly to the Value Edition, but minus the sunroof, and comes with a thrifty turbocharged 1.4-liter engine that returns 35 mpg combined (32 city/40 highway) and still produces more torque than the base motor. There's also the Sport trim, with a 201-hp turbocharged 1.6-liter engine, that comes with a lot of the Limited's upscale features.

The Elantra has a lot to offer tech-savvy and value-oriented buyers, and if you're looking for a compact sedan it's definitely worth checking out. Make sure to read our full review to find out more and take advantage of our shopping tools for the best deal on a 2018 Hyundai Elantra near you.
