2011 Hyundai ElantraAnita Alfaro - San Antonio, TX10/15/2015
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.
Good on gas and affordable car
2013 Hyundai ElantraChristie Johnson - Raleigh, NC08/27/2015
I transitioned from a SUV to a car which I wasn't sure if I'd like. I was looking for an affordable car with good gas mileage. Surprisingly, I'm enjoying my Hyundai Elantra immensely. My 13 year old son loves when I pick him up from school in the car as he enjoys the sporty look with the additional spoiler. I will be holding onto the Elantra as long as possible as my son will inherit once getting his license.
Good car for the model year at the price
2010 Hyundai ElantraMax Barlow - Prairie Village, KS04/29/2016
This car may not be the best looking or very stylish inside and out, but for a car at its price, it has great safety rating numbers, seatbelts, and a lot of different airbags that make it so (I can attest to the airbag and safety when I had this model before from 2010 until 2014 when it was totaled in an accident. It protected me well). It also gets great gas mileage, has a very roomy, comfortable cabin for its compact sedan size, large trunk space, Great stereo system and speaker volume balance, fog lights, chrome door handles, steering wheel cruise control and stereo system controls, Auxillary plug in for iPod or phone music, charging power jack, cigarette lighter, spare tire with jack and tools, and traction control. Not bad for winter .
