I have driven and owned almost every make...Opel, ford, toyota, dodge, nissan, pontiac, saturn, and the list goes on. Having driven commerical trucks for over30 years in the California Bay Area I was very excited to find a car that was both sexy and practical, with great safety features, warranty and styling all in on package. Drove many dealership cars like subaru impressa, ford focus hathback, toyota prius 2013-2015 models Honda CR-V and yes, enen a Honda Insight. If your catching a theme here, your right...A HATCHBACK ( not listed on edmunds site so put it here) I'm 59 years old now and set in my ways of safety, be a carefull driver and can hypermile even my current 2000 chevy malibu 6 cylinder full size car to 26 miles average using "PRIUS STEALT MODE" driving modes...yes I'm pretty good at this for a car that the epa said was only 20 mpg. Anyway....after driving the sporty ELANTRA GT HATCHBACK...I was hooked...But there are some things you need to know first...It's not a LEXUS OR BIG CAR RIDE...Its listed as a compact but has room inside bigger than a AUDI A4, toyota matrix ( I drove two of those too) and bigger cargo space than even a CHEVY VOLT ( yes, drove that, did that) tthe pick up is great like a turbo( they use the 2.0 GDI ENGINE in thier currnt 2016 turbo models). NOW TO THE PUNCHLINE...THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW.. This is a sporty, sport tuned ride and as one review said TAUNT" in ride. BUT THE REAR SHOCKS are crap and my new car had to have them replaced before 30,000 miles because I thought the backend was falling off just taking it home about 50 miles from the HYUNDIA DEALERSHIP in MODESTO,CA. After calling them the same day I picked it up, upset and only 1 hour old..they told me to wait till thursday (picked it up on friday) due to the long weekend. I could drive it that way so went to my mecahnic Ive used for years and was told the Hynudia shocks where shot and unsafe and most any speed, not just freeway. I shelled out 300.00 the next day, after picking up the car from the dealer and it rides much better....so moral of the story...take any used car to a trusted mechcinic BEFORE YOU BUY THE CAR and pay him up to 100.00 for a Full "TUG AND PULL AND FLUID CHECK AND ROAD TEST BY A PROFESIONAL its well worth it if you plan to keep the car and all the safety features it has..but make sure it's safe first, THEN TALK PRICE NOT BEFORE !!!! Yes I'm seeing the dealer this week. Yes the warranty is hella long and can take it to a local dealer then drive from UNION CITY TO MODESTO HYUNDIA but "LUCY...YOU HAVE SOME SPLANIN TO DO".... Love the car and all it can do and hold, performance is great...desgn is wonderful and jazzed about finding a RUBY RED "HOT HATCH" color to boot. The 2016 Elantra gt hatchback is the last of it's kind due to under 36 mpg ( which you can get with ECO on the hwy) and power, power, power...did I say power. TEST DRIVE THIS GEM and see what I mean..P.S. the 2015 GT is the same car but more simple front styling..GO GET THE SONATA-GENESIS inspired model... get practical, sexy, family hauler, outdoor gear packer, fun to drive and toss into corners 6 speed fun mobile. Just check it out completely , then pull that trigger and watch it go...Jay Cobbs Tri-cty area BAY AREA California

The paint started peeling, dealer tried three times to fix and did a real crappy job. Tried to contact Hyundai and they won't even respond. Bought the car for the warrant, but Hyundai won't back the warranty, will never buy a Hyundai again. No support.

Good car overall, but beware of a few weaknesses

The car is roomy and looks good in and out. Acceleration, braking and handling are also good for a car in this class. However, I feel that a few weaknesses must be pointed out: (1) Very poor design of the air vents in the dashboard. At the highest position, the air blows right on the driver's wrists on both sides. If you try to hold the wheel differently, it will be in your face and shoulders. Lower directions are about as inconvenient and also reduce the air flow. (2) Poor engine braking when descending steep slopes. I drove this car up Mount Washington (average slope 12%) without any problems but on descent the first gear (selected manually) could not hold it. Even on the less steep portions of the road, in a few seconds it was approaching the red line. I had to brake a lot and wait for the brakes to cool off a couple of times. There is no excuse for this. Every other car I had the chance to observe was doing better. A few years ago I drove a 2006 Corolla (also automatic) into a canyon in Colorado (average slope 16%) and the first gear held beautifully at no more than 15 mph. (3) So-so rear visibility. (4) No spare wheel.

Best Looking Mid-Size Sedan - The Fluidic Design

I believed this was the last batch of 2016 inventory of the fluidic design Elantra, before they introduced the 2017 new look. For me I still preferred the fluidic design because it can easily be identified as originally Hyundai design. Like it has it's own trademark which really became famous in the auto industry, where other car manufacturer tried to copy but nothing came close to it. Aside from it's looks of course, is the performance which is highly rated as well, plus the comfort and safety of the car. On top of that with Hyundai 10 year power train warranty, where else can you go wrong in choosing this car. It's really an excellent investment.

Highly recommend this car. I am so proud to own it, only 2 problems i have noticed. One, driving with passenger side window down there is always a funny noise like driving on a flat (not a big deal to me). Two the handling when driving over a bump is kind of shaky but not too bad it only took me a few times to learn my car and how to handle a big bump. Above all this car is amazing and can not talk negative about it in any other way. I made the right decision and picked the right car for me!

Fantastic and Fun little car at low cost

Be sure to get the Option 2 package with larger, wider alloy wheels and P205/55R16 tires. These wheels and tires increase handling and stopping power immensely. Beware the Korean Kumo tires that come with it, as I had tred break lose inside on one on my 2009 Elantra SE. This can be fatal, but fortunately I caught this when it was just beginning to cause vibration due to a lump when tires were perfectly balanced. I immediate had all 4 tires changed to Michelin Premier A/S. For the 2016 Elantra I just bought, I had the dealer take car to Costco across the freeway from them to install 5 new Michelin Premier A/S for about $750. I bought a 5th wheel identical to the 4 on ground, and a tire change kit, thus ending up with a full size spare--which fit in trunk well, rather than the ridiculous air and sealer kit, which will ruin tire if used. Another cheap mfr deal: There is no auto-transmission fluid dipstick, and no key locks on door or trunk. If you lose keys, you're out of luck, as only way in is with push button on key fob. This saves them a few pennies and says to heck with my customers... just as no spare tire at all does. Only thing is, all mfrs are going this way.

Excellent.

If you are looking for quick take off and power with four in the car forget it. Noise in cabin from suspension is poor. terrible in snow. the traction and anti-lock brakes make it hard to drive. the car won't move if you get stuck. shifts gears terribly. great gas millage. nice sound system. great controls for everything. very well equipped. lots of space. nice color choices. looks good.

GREAT CAR, no soul

this has been an VERY good car at a great price. in 12,000 miles have had no problems. I would recommend this car to anyone as a great "a to b" mode of transportation - gas mileage has been excellent - in the low to mid 30's. rides nice, handles nice, roomy interior and trunk. while it has performed very good in EVERY respect it has no soul, no wow factor, nothing to make you go "awesome".

My 2nd Elantra and still loving it

I bought my first Elantra back in 2013. The GT hatchback automatic. After 3 years and 80K miles I thought I'd trade it in while still under warranty to get a better deal. And I certainly did. My new SE with Popular Equip Pkg listed for $20, 550. I paid $16, 885. WOW! They allowed me $8350 for my GT and threw in a spare tire kit and mud guards too. It was so cheap I paid cash...lol. No payments. Yippee! Its silver with grey cloth and has the auto dimming mirror with homelink and compass. The only thing I miss is no heated seats which the GT had. The gas mileage is averaging 36.5 with mostly highway driving in heavy rush hr traffic. Acceleration is decent. The Hankook tires are great. Sure glad I got the '16 because the new '17 is kinda boring looking and many of the great standard features are gone unless you really add on pkg after pkg.

Fit and finish Terrible. Handling poor. Bad weather Handling DEADLY. It is so bad in snow and ice I just left it home. Brakes were bad from DAY 1. Dealers response was they couldn't find anything wrong. I eventually had to do an entire brake job. New pads and rotors. Dealer put an inspection sticker on it even with bad brakes and worn tires. Corporate Hyundai is a total waste. They are uninterested in anything but M O N E Y!!! You get subtle threats when trying to resolve an issue. I could go on and on but there isn't enough space here. But something else this company vehicles are a waste of time.

I love just about everything about this car. It's too bad that Honda decided to sell me a $2,500 in dash GPS system that is totally useless. The voice recognition is impossible to use, the maps are inaccurate from day one, & a map update cost hundreds of dollars. The very last thing that I want to do after spending $22,000 on a car is get home and find out I need to spend another $250 for accurate maps. It's a deal breaker for me and will steer me away from the Hyundai dealership the next time I'm looking for a car. I feel like they have taking me for a ride, and not the kind I was hoping for when I purchase my Elantra.

Very good car. This is the 4th Hyundai I've owned (the 2nd Elantra) and I've been satisfied with each one. The acceleration is a little sluggish but OK. Nice front seat area though the center console on the 2016 could go back to the slightly larger one on the 2013. Back seat area is a little small for bigger adults but really good for kids. Overall features in the Value Edition are top notch and the trunk is a good size for this type of car. Warranty is top notch and Columbia Hyundai in Cincinnati is the best dealership I've ever dealt with.

2016 Manual Elantra...to Replace Our 2013 Elantra

From another reviewer: We just upgraded from a windy sea blue 2013 to a windy sea blue 2016......we love the blue....////////// Well! We replaced our 2013 Venetian Red auto Elantra with a 2016 Venetian Red manual Elantra!!! The 2016 is deeper with a bit more metal flake, but still not spectacular. As good as Hyundai cars are, their colors need to be much more like Ford colors, richer, more depth, more undertones, more.....jump. Other unadvertised improvements between the 2013 & 2016, are more precise & responsive electric steering, & major improvement in the really quiet & smooth 1.8 liter engine. Both the auto 2013 & manual 2016 obtained the same mpg, ~33mpg to 35mpg with 25%-30% city driving, 36mpg with 15% city driving, & with 100% ethanol-free gasoline & 15% city driving, 39mpg. Also with E0, long distance highway driving gave 43mpg for the auto(could be more?), & 46mpg with the manual.

Was going to lease a Sonata but was more impressed with the 2016 Elantra SE. Seats were more comfortable, handling was better, overall like the Elantra better. Have driven for 1 month very happy with our choice, have gotten 38 MPG on the highway also good gas mileage in the city.

I am in love with my Elantra! I love the way it drives, I love the way it looks, but more importantly I love how much money it saves me on gas. It takes like $15-20 less than what my old car took to fill up and that is awesome to me. I definitely recommend this car!

Good buy for the money!

This is my first brand new car to purchase. I may be a little biased due to the fact this was the first car that I looked at, first dealership that I went to, and I ended up buying the car. I have put 1600 miles on the car so far in the month I have owned it ( I know, my girlfriend loves it and always wants to drive it). The car has been great so far, it feels nice on the road, when i get on the highway going at a fast speed the tires grab the road very well when sliding, if i hit a bump i never feel like my tires aren't in contact with the road, I know this has to do with the traction control the car has. Once you get on the road or highway the drive is nice, its a little noisy but nothing you can't get used to, the stock radio/cd/xmsiruis rado is delightful. I got the base model SE which my only upgrades are rubber mats (highly recommend) and the auto-dimming mirror/compass. You can hear road noise but it's not overwhelming, I don't expect silence when I drive anyways, its really not safe when driving long distances and with this car you will get amazing gas mileage doing that. I have been getting around 38 MPG although I drive a lot of highway, once you put on the Active ECO you can get higher, my highest yet is 40 MPG. My only gripe with the model I got is there isn't automatic headlights and I would have liked the window lock button to light up the same way that the other window buttons on the driver side light up. The car drives great though even with a 1.8 liter 4 cylinder engine, the transmission shifts very smooth and I never have a problem merging with traffic or accelerating to make a lane change. The body of the car is very sexy. I chose the black version and with tinted windows its a very good looking car. If you are looking for a reliable car with a 100,000 mile power train warranty and a 60,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty that will definitely last the length of your car loan, this is a great choice.

Besides being a little hard getting in and out, I have become use to sliding the seat back! I love this car! I feel like I stole it from Phil Long of Motor City in Colorado Springs as I can't believe the deal that I got! I had to drive to and from Arkansas (2000 miles) due to an emergency not long after I bought it so got to know the car very well. The car handled like a dream the whole way! Many people on the way at rest stops, gas stations, etc. complimented me on my car and it made me swell with pride! Hyundai definitely has a winner with this one!

love my car!!!

I love my Elantra! This is the best vehicle I've bought in 10 years! Well, to be fair that's because my last one was a 2005 Hyundai Tucson that my eldest grandson is now driving. Due to mobility problems, sedans became difficult for me years back because they were too low, but the 2016 Elantra has a height-adjustable driver seat which makes is perfect for me. I'm my 83-year-old 4'9" mother's caregiver so the Elantra is a perfect match for her, too, whereas the Tucson was a bit too high for egress safety. This is my first vehicle with keyless ignition about which I was a bit dubious, but I've come to love not having to carry a key ring around. I love the sunroof (standard on the VE), and the backup camera has been very useful at night backing out of our long driveway which has a curve in it. My only two negatives are: 1. The curve of the roof line toward the A pillars is a bit shallow as it goes toward the windshield which makes getting in and out a little bit difficult without bumping my head. It's taken a while to remember to lean back into the seat but I'm getting the hang of it. 2. Visibility, especially obliquely, is somewhat reduced by the wideness of the C pillars combined with the narrowing of the rear windows. These are things that one can adjust to eventually so I'd just advise additional caution until adapted. All-in-all I would heartily recommend this vehicle. My sister, who went with me to buy mine, liked it so much she bought one the next day.

The little engine that could!

I recently purchased this vehicle, and I am in love with it. This is my first Hyundai and I'm glad I got the 2016 Elantra SE with popular package over an older, used version of this car. My sales consultants Tim and Aaron at Malcolm Hyundai were amazing! They helped me through this entire process and I was able to purchase the car I wanted in the color I liked for the price I wanted. This is also my first new car so I'm extremely excited about that. The 2016 Hyundai Elantra combines the best of both compact and midsize cars. The outside has this sporty, compact look and it's bigger on the inside like a TARDIS! It's still spacious even with four adults in the car; although, tall people may be uncomfortable riding in the car for long periods of time. It's no sports car but the engine still packs a punch. I routinely drive on city streets and highways and I haven't had a problem keeping up with the traffic even though it only has a 4 cylinder 145hp engine. My Elantra is an automatic but it has manual capabilities with this transmission they call Shiftronic. I'm terrible at using a manual transmission so I haven't tried this feature yet. The good thing is there's no clutch to worry about if you use the Shiftronic. I really love the touchscreen media system, Bluetooth, and rearview camera. The rearview camera is really awesome. I've never been this calm backing into a parking spot before! It only took seconds to connect my phone to the Bluetooth and I didn't have to use the owner's manual to figure out most of the bells and whistles in the car (I still recommend reading it). The noise level in the cabin isn't loud but it's not silent either. The Sonata was quieter than this but the Elantra still does a good job keeping out a lot of the road noise. Overall, I really like my 2016 Hyundai Elantra. It's a beautiful, sporty looking car that's packed with a lot of features.

I cross shopped cruze, focus, corolla and sentra. I bought an elantra for the unbeatable room, ride, performance, features and warranty!! I am 6'4'' and I am very comfortable in this car - in most of the above cars the console cut on my right calfe of my leg. And the gas mileage is AWSOME I drive about 500 miles per week and with only 1000 miles on this car I am getting 33 - 37 mpg!!!!!!! the only thing I miss is not opting for the automatic headlights - trivial issue at best. I would HIGHLY recommend this car

Sparkly Red, Sunroof, and Attitude!

This is a great vehicle with features I only dreamed of having. I have under 2,000 miles on my car so far and am averaging 34 MPG in a mix of town and freeway driving, mostly in town. Plenty of pep, very comfortable, and great styling. I love the comprehensive warranty...a special blessing for a single senior woman. The trunk is gigantic. Highly recommended. August 2016: I have now had the car fourteen months and love it more than ever. Absolutely no problems whatsoever. It went through a lot of snow like a champion last winter.

I have owned many different vehicles in the past include two Grand Cherokees, a Firebird, Escape, Land Rover, and a Corolla. My new 2016 Elantra is by far the BEST car I've ever owned! The Value Edition offers many bells and whistles that I've not been used to on other vehicles I've owned. I was highly impressed with the heated seats, touch screen radio, Bluetooth, back up camera, sunroof, and XM. With Hyundai, they give you 90 of XM subscription for free. However, I already had XM in my Corolla so all I had to do was transfer the service from the Onyx box to the vehicle itself. I absolutely love the fact that my vehicle includes hands free calling. I travel A LOT for my job and being on the phone while driving is part of my everyday job. I was not even planning on really buying a vehicle the day I purchased my 2016 Elantra. My Corolla had just turned 100,000 miles and was starting to really show its wear and tear. I went into the dealer to look at a 2013 model that I saw for sale online. My luck-they had just sold the car that morning. The salesperson asked me to consider buying new due to the warranty and the fact that a new car was not much more expensive than a used one. He asked me what features I was looking for in a car and after I told him, he suggested the value edition for me. After looking at the car and starting the engine, I fell in love with it instantly. It had so many features! After taking it for a test drive, I knew I was going to purchase the car that day. The only changes I would make to the vehicle is the power of acceleration. (I am cognizant of the fact that it's only a 1.8 4 cylinder and that it's not going to have much power). However, it gets great gas mileage despite not having a lot of power. The only other feature I would add is power seats. The handling is perfect and it has an extremely smooth ride. The sound system is excellent. I will definitely buy Hyundai again!

Black, Curvy, and Sporty!

I know your initial thought: am I talking about Serena Williams? No, but you can bet it was not hard to name my new 2016 black and beautiful Hyundai Elantra after the world's best women's tennis player of all time. I bought my car fully loaded from Rick Case Hyundai in Duluth and I could not be more happier! I came in pre-approved so I was pretty much shopping for what I wanted. I sealed the deal in the same day with minor tit-for-tat negotiating and walked away with my new baby! Salesman, Blessing Iyere blessed me with the vehicle of my liking and I could not be more satisfied. Truly grateful!

Upgrade!

We just upgraded from a windy sea blue 2013 to a windy sea blue 2016 (we really love the blue color). Our 2013 was the preferred equipment package which we thought was comparable to the 2016 Value Edition. After some research, we realized that the Value Edition is actually a huge upgrade when it comes to options. Our new car has black cloth interior. It is a huge upgrade from the 2013. the cloth feels much more upscale. The shifter actually has a leather boot instead of the plastic track, definitely better. Push button start and proximity keys are great. The back-up cam and touch screen work great so far as well. We also love the sun roof. The exterior chrome and turn signal indicators on the mirrors are nice touches . Our 2013 averaged about 33mpg all the time and 40-42 on the highway. So far the new one is averaging about 31. I think it will be comparable with a few more miles. I only have two minor issues. This car has great fuel economy, but it really could use more horsepower. We have two fairly steep inclines that we travel regularly, and the engine really works hard to maintain speed. I know the sport and limited models have more horsepower, but just 15 or 20 more in this car would make a noticeable difference. My other issue is with the rear view mirror. My 2013 had the auto dimming mirror with the compass. I know it seems like something small, but shouldn't a car with all these great options have an auto dimming mirror?

Very attractive

My only two complaints is that the electric steering is hard to adjust to. Feels stiff. The road noise and ride could improve more.
