2011 Hyundai Elantra Review

(3 Stars)  Value-minded, conservative, boring -- for now

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
Taking some of its new exterior styling from the Sonata, the Hyundai Elantra really brings a lot of car for the money. The 2011 Elantra starts at a price tag under $15,000 and still comes well equipped with extras like traction control, stability control, six airbags and many other nice additions to the base model. Debuting in late 2010 the 2011 model of the Elantra plans on bringing more economical minded styles, reliability and interior furnishings to this compact sedan model from Hyundai.

The new Elantra also comes with a touring option that will be rolled out in a small crossover looking wagon that will offer front wheel drive and a larger 2.0 liter engine that will give 138 horsepower to the driver. The dual overhead cam and continuous variable timing will be a big upgrade compared to the standard model and five speed manual transmissions should make a very fun to drive package that will surely be a consumer hit. There are also two trim levels to choose from on the standard Elantra that add some luxury features and alternate styling.
