My 23 Elantra HEV Limited STILL a very good choice

UPDATE: I have put 16,000 miles over the last year. It averages about 48mpg in the winter and 52 in the summer. The car has had zero issues to date. Tires are wearing evenly and well. It is comfortable on 16hr drives to/from florida. It has decent power from a stop and passing...for a hybrid. My Hyundai dealership has been good too with the free oil changes and tire rotations. So, to sum up, still very happy with my purchase. I have only driven this car for about 350 miles, so this is my initial thoughts on this car. I will update this review and the miles/time increase. 1. Looks-This car is a bright red and looks sharp. The interior also looks pretty nice, but the hard plastics at the top of the doors is a head scratcher. Why put hard plastic at all? Now...keeping it looking new will be easy, and it obviously won't get tears or dents, like leather or softer materials. It just seems odd they made that choice. 2. Performance-The Elantra HEV hybrid power systems blend perfectly into the 6speed dual clutch transmission. The power shifting and blending between gas and electric motors is seemless/smooth. It has decent pickup for a hybrid, with my timed 0-60 time at about 8.5 sec. The ride is exceptionally smooth over rough Ohio roads filled w potholes/cracks. It even has enough power for towing 1100lb or less (although, I won't be towing anything). MPG of 49/50/52 is pretty dang good. At $3.00/gallon, it costs me $33 to fill up from completely empty with my 11 gal tank...and gives me over 570 miles range on the highway! When calculated, that comes to 6 cents per mile (rounded up). 3. Comfort-The leather seats are decent. I have owned many luxury cars with better leather seats, but these seem comfortable enough so far. The drivers cockpit has a decent amount of space for a compact car. I am able to get into a very comfortable driving position. My last car had 30 way adjustments. This feels like it will be adequate even with only 6 way adjustable drivers seat. The front seats are heated AND cooled. The rear seats have adequate leg and head space for even taller people. It also has a sunroof; dual side controls for heat/AC; Easy entry/exit of car, even for bigger people 4. Tech (Get ready...its a long list)-Smart key(keep keys in your pocket); Digital Key (Hyundai is the only car company that offers it at this price point. It means I can turn my Android phone into a key that will open/lock and drive the car if I lose/forget my smart key That is a handy thing to have if you lose your key or just want one less thing in your pocket/purse; Remote start from key or phone app (if you're in the center of a building, you can still start it); Adaptive cruise w Stop & Go; Collision and Pedestrian Detection/Avoidance; Cyclist turning detection/avoidance; Lane keeping Assist (that is really a semi-autonomous driving feature); Rear back up collision warning and braking; back up camera; battery reset from Hybrid battery (if your starting battery gets to weak from sitting or something else, you can use the hybrid battery to jumpstart the car by using a simple switch); Brake Assist, Hill Hold Control and Electric Parking Brake; Voice Activated Dual Zone Front Automatic Air Conditioning; Power drivers seat w 2 person memory settings; multi configurable dashboard and vehicle settings; Entertainment/radio with 8 speaker Bose speakers (sounds pretty good for a Hyundai); Apple Carplay and Android Auto; Wireless phone charger 5. Value-It comes with a 5 year/60k miles Bumper-Bumper Warranty. 2 years better that most other car companies; All the tech, performance, comfort and better warranty for the same price range or better than other compact cars, like Prius and hybrid Corolla/Insight; 3 years of scheduled maintenance FREE Things I didn't like/thought they could do better: 1. The seat handle on the L side of the passenger seat...WHY??? 2. No Homelink for garage door 3. While it has Apple and Android systems, they are not wireless. You need a phone cord. 4. The before mentioned plastic on the interior top of the doors. Overall, I am thrilled with this car so far with it's Performance, MPG, Amazing amount of Tech, Comfort and it's Warranty (I even upgraded to the transferable extended bumper to bumper for 10 years/150K miles). Outside of regular maintenance and normal wearable items(tires, brakes, etc), I won't have to pay for a repair for 10 years. UPDATE: Ok, at 700 miles and 1 month so far and everything is still accurate. It is getting right at 50mpg with mix of highway and city. Love the fact it cost $33 to go over 550 miles. So far, a great choice. 2nd UPDATE: At 4K miles now. Car is still flawless. No issues at all. As it's gotten warmer, the MPGs have gone up. Getting 56MPG in mixed driving at times, usually closer to 55. The semi-auto driving is nice to have and works pretty well...but don't trust it 100%. Not on ANY car. This hybrid has really good pick-up for such good MPG. As far as Tech...It really comes in handy to be able to drive the car with your cell phone as the key. I'm sticking with my initial impression and highly recommend you buy one if value, great MPGs, smooth ride, decent power, great tech, reliable, good looks and a comfortable car matter to you.

I got the 2023 Hyundai Elantra Limited hybrid. The interior is very spacious and upscale. It comes with leather heated and ventilated seats, moonroof and great safety features. I like the digital displays and ambient lighting. I am getting 52 mpg combined. The ride is smooth.

2023 Hyundai Elantra Hybrid Blue!

The Elantra Hybrid Blue is a great car at a great price as the MSRP was about the same as my 2010 Toyota Prius! In addition, the Elantra gets better MPG and is a quick, fun to drive sporty sedan with edgy styling, safety features and technology. Speed limit driving yields EPA numbers of 56 hwy and 53 city and winter MPG stays above 45 MPG due to bigger battery and EV mode. Smart mode driving is more than adequate day to day and Sport mode is great for highway merges and passing. Favorite features are the quiet, smooth cabin, 6 speed auto tranny with manual option, quick warm-up heated seats,Sirius XM and intuitive safety sensors and driver assists. This a great entry hybrid and the hard plastics are no big deal given the overall spaciousness and value of this fun sedan!

Have had the car for just over a month now, with a little over 3,000 miles on her. It's supposed to get 30mpg city/40 mpg hwy. I've been constantly getting over 40mpg city/hwy combined, and if it's mostly hwy driving, mpg in the low 50's! It's got nice pickup as well, and is just a plain fun car to drive! Love the included warranties and maintenance specials, too!
