SAFETY

The Elantra has two sets of lower Latch anchors in the second row's outboard seats. While they're buried in the seat cushions, they're not impossible to reach.

My younger son, who uses a booster seat, had a difficult time buckling up independently because of floppy seat belt buckles. Older children won't have as difficult a time using the seat belts.

The Elantra hasn't been crash-tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

The Elantra has standard front-wheel drive, all-disc antilock brakes with brake assist, an electronic stability system, traction control and six airbags, including side curtains for both rows. A backup camera is optional.
