2012 Hyundai ElantraPatrick R - Wichita, KS06/03/2016
I bought this car three years ago and it's been a great change from my '91 Buick Century. I considered other compacts but landed on the Hyundai for its gas mileage, low cost of maintenance, great manufacturer's warranty and modern styling. It has nice amenities for even the basic trim and gets good gas mileage (not as advertised by still superior) for the class. I've done regular maintenance every 3k miles and only had one issue so far that was taken care of by the manufacturer. If you're looking for a commuter vehicle or just a daily driver this is a great vehicle. The space is great for the compact class as well, I play in a band and can move all of my equipment in the backseat/trunk with a passenger very comfortably.
This car is the perfect size for me and I love the steering so much. I really like the mpg calculator as well because I used to be a chronic speedster and now I drive the speed limit because I didn't realize how much gas I was wasting. Very comfortable seats, spacious trunk and a very quiet car. I love it more than I expected!
Perfect for me!

The rear cargo space is highly configurable when you lift the floor cover which helps keep things from sliding around on small shopping trips. Leaving the floor cover down provides ample space for bulky or larger trips. The amount of cargo space easily competes against small - mid size SUVs while enjoying the easy handling of a car. It also has an amazingly small turning radius, comparable to any compact car.
Despite their smaller size, these compact cars pack lots of power and plenty of enjoyable features for drivers and passengers alike. Check out this list of our best ranked small and compact cars, based on CarMax sales data from January 1, 2018 through April 30, 2018.
