5 reasons to buy the 2014 Hyundai Elantra

1. Generously appointed

The 2014 Hyundai Elantra is offered in three trim options. This sedan is well appointed even on its base SE trim, with standard features including heated mirrors, power accessories, a six-speaker sound system, cruise control, adjustable steering wheel, and a USB interface for seamlessly connecting an iPod or MP3 player.

2. Spacious trunk

For a smaller sedan, the 2014 Elantra offers a surprising amount of trunk space. At 14.8 cu-ft, this is plenty of room to haul groceries or other cargo. If you need more storage space for larger or longer items, the 60/40-split rear seats can be easily folded down to create a large pass-through area.

3. Comfortable cabin

The 2014 Elantra can easily accommodate up to five passengers, with plenty of space to stretch out and stay cozy—even on longer trips. For added comfort, look for an SE model, which comes with heated front seats. Meanwhile, heated seats are extended to the second row on the Limited trim and a six-way power-adjustable driver's seat with lumbar support.

4. Capable engine options

Rather than being offered with just one engine configuration, the 2014 Elantra is available with two engine choices. Standard on the SE and Limited trims is a 1.8L four-cylinder engine at 145 hp, whereas the Sport trim receives a more powerful 2.0L four-cylinder at 173 hp. Both engines are paired with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.

5. Respectable fuel economy

If you're looking for a smaller sedan that will help you drive farther between fuel stops, the 2014 Elantra is worth a look. The 2014 Elantra base trim with standard 1.8L four-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic transmission gets an EPA-estimated 31 mpg combined.

Stepping up to the more powerful 2.0L four-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic doesn't sacrifice much in the way of fuel economy, as this model gets an EPA-estimated 28 mpg combined.
