Great styling and low cost of ownership for a very low price. It's no hot rod, but it definitely has the space I need without burning up gasoline. The hatchback has a ton of room: with the seats down I fit an entire rabbit hutch in the back of the car!
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!
Solid commuter vehicle.
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.
