It drives smoothly, looks sporty, has a lot of features on the steering wheel, and is a reliable form of transportation with comforts.

My Hyundai Elantra is silver and has a sporty look to it. I love the hatchback aesthetically and it also provides function by giving me a lot of trunk space. It has never broken down in the 2.5 years I've had it so I do consider it reliable. There are a lot of exciting features that are right on the steering wheel, which I love. I often listen to music via my phone and don't have to hook anything up -easy and makes being in the vehicle more fun . I tend to let the gas tank get down low and the car tells you exactly how many miles you have to drive . This is a convenient feature. Sitting in the car is comfortable . For the most part the car drives with ease, every once in awhile I have trouble getting "pick up" when getting on the highway.This doesn't happen a lot, but it happens. The ride is so smooth that when I first purchased my car I was doing 70 on a back road without even realizing it. I immediately slowed down and now I pay more attention to the speedometer. Now for the bad part...this is a new car and I've had to have a lot of maintenance work completed. Stuff just seemed to go wrong the first year and a half I had the car . Knock on wood I haven't had any problems in approximately a year , so let's just hope it was bad luck not a bad car. Overall, I am happy with my purchase. I would like to purchase an SUV in the future and will consider Hyundai.

Small, Affordable Car with Spacious Interior and Good Reliability

The Elantra is a very comfortable car to drive, and easier to see out of than you would think considering the small-seeming back window. The interior is designed in such a way that you feel like you're driving a much bigger car. (The pros being that you have a lot of room, the cons(?) being that you're more careful parking or changing lanes than you probably have to be.) I've driven mine for about 5 years and the electronics still work well. The seats are also pretty easy to clean with a store-bought seat cleaner. I haven't had any major issues with the engine or other vital components, but have kept up with regular maintenance on the car. The biggest downsides I've seen are the road noise and the suspension. It's quite loud when you're driving on the highway, and while I haven't blown out a tire, the car does not handle potholes or rough roads smoothly. If you're driving through an area with a lot of bumps at a high speed, you're likely to feel anxiety that the car will be damaged or a tire will blow out. Again, with regular maintenance I haven't had issues, but it's not a smooth ride over any kind of rough roads. The trunk is a bit small if you're planning to haul lots of things, but that's a minor concern. In general, the car gets good gas mileage in-city (up to 40 mi per gallon on the highway) and is an affordable, reliable vehicle.

2014 Hyundai Elantra- a pretty great car.

I bought it used, four years old at this point, not quite at 72k miles. Now at nearly 76k I haven't had any issues with it, I run it pretty hard most of the time and still get 34-38 mpg on average. The steering wheel has buttons that allow me to cycle through the amount of time my car has been on since I reset the timer, driving range, average mpg, two trip odometers, average speed, and I can't decide between three different steering styles- comfort, normal, and sport. The radio has 12 different spots to save your favorite stations, and if you have an apple device you can listen to and choose music through your car rather than just using the AUX cord to use the speakers. There is the option for satellite radio as well. As far as comfort goes, it is a rather comfortable car, lots of space and the seats are supportive yet soft. The back seats can fold downwards ( I have been able to fit two 112 inch stand up paddle boards in the back with the trunk open and the seats down), and there is a lot of trunk space. It is rather quiet at highway speeds as well. My biggest issue is the glare from the sun on the dials on the dash, but you get used to it. Also, if its raining very hard at night and you have oncoming traffic the windshield gets pretty difficult to see out of.
