4.5 out of 5 (26 reviews)

Great choice for a sports sedan

If you want a sporty, yet reliable and comfortable me ride, then the Hyundai Elantra Sport is a great choice. I had a 2018 Honda Civic SI that I actually traded for this one because I wanted the dual clutch automatic. The subtle exhaust note is just noticeable enough to be enjoyable.

Pros

  • Ride and Handling:
  • Value:
  • Power:

Cons

  • Fuel Economy:

- Matt F, 2018 Hyundai Elantra

Great car, great price

It’ a pretty car, that I enjoy driving. Mileage is great, handles well. Has all the bells & whistles. The dashboard section that indicates driver information is very difficult to read, but has all the necessary information. There is some difficulty noted when accelerating to get on the interstate. Otherwise it runs well.

Pros

  • Cabin Noise: Very quiet
  • Fuel Economy: good
  • Interior Space: very comfortable on long trips

Cons

  • Cargo Space: Small
  • Dashboard: See previous comment
  • Cabin Noise: too much technology

- Cynthia Gibson, 2018 Hyundai Elantra

Exceeded my expectations

When I first purchased the car I wasn’t really sold on it; it has a good design style, modern inside and at a great price, but it didn’t quite feel right. Well now that it is months later, it has become my favorite car. It handles well, the fuel economy is fantastic, and it has features for both apple and android phones to plug right in. The only con of note is that it’s quite popular, my last car was very unique and I only ever saw a handful of others driving around in the city. I’m sure this isn’t a standard complaint so I do not really bring it up unless specifically asked.

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: It’s good, the eco and sport mode actually offer different driving experiences.
  • Technology and Entertainment: Apple car play and the android auto are both included.
  • Value: Unbeatable

Cons

  • Visibility: The headlights are low and not optimized for rural driving.
  • Seat Comfort: I got used to it, but the center console comes right up to my knee while I drive.
