Hyundai Elantra Review

Just call the Hyundai Elantra the comeback kid. Introduced in the early '90s, the economy-priced sedan didn't exactly get off to a good start, earning a well-deserved reputation for overall shoddiness and unreliability. But two decades later, the Elantra is now a class leader buoyed by better reliability, agreeable performance, handsome styling and a long list of standard features. Take it for a spin and you'll likely be impressed with its smooth ride and responsive handling. Throw in a roomy cabin, solid build quality and a lengthy list of safety features, and the Elantra is a formidable competitor in its segment.

Shortcomings? Newer models have quieted the cabin some, but older Elantras let in enough road noise to remind you it's still a budget compact. The high-strung 2.0-liter engine remains pretty whiny at even moderate rpm, and it's hard to find older Elantras equipped with ABS. But these blemishes fade into insignificance when you consider the great value a new or late-model Elantra represents. If you're looking for a small sedan that suits a tight budget, Hyundai's Elantra belongs on your short list of contenders.
