It is a 4 cylinder so it doesn't eat gas crazily, and actually gets stellar gas mileage. Yet, it has an overhead engine, and is therefore capable of climbing to speed insanely quickly for a car of it's caliber. It's beautiful and extremely comfortable for anyone who sits in any seat. It's great for long trips with the best cruise control I've ever had on any car. It can make calls with the Bluetooth (which I adore) and the interior is gorgeous. My only complaint is the exterior white color, but that is easily fixable. Overall, best. Car. Ever.
I'm so happy about my car choice. I love that the Elantra looks sporty but is four doors. It feels like an almost-luxury car but at an affordable price. Running smooth even in the cold winters. Love, love, love!!! Definitely suggest springing for the heated seats- worth an upgrade!

2010 Hyundai ElantraEric H - Fresno, CA03/25/2016
Runs great, decent mileage, looks nice, plenty of cargo room. My only complaint is that the driver side window stopped working, and needs a whole new internal assembly, a $400 repair. This shouldn't happen on a 6 year old car. However, the car itself is great. It's really like a small SUV, as it sits higher than a Civic, but not quite as high as a Honda CRV. The gas mileage achieved is usually about 26 mpg, not great, but not bad. On longer trips, slightly more than 30 mpg can be achieved. It's worthwhile to note that this car is heavier than the Elantra sedan, which accounts for lower gas mileage. Fantastic car, very happy with it, no issues.
