The 2014 Hyundai Elantra has catapulted to the front of the compact car segment, offering expressive styling, an amazing array of available equipment, and the best warranty going. Offered as a sedan, coupe or sporty GT hatchback, the Elantra covers all the bases and even some left out by rivals such as the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla and Ford Focus.

Great things do come in small packages.

For a little car it has a decent amount of room. It is great on gas which is big. It handles very well has a fairly smooth ride. All the little extras like the backup camera, panoramic sunroof, cruise control, Audio controls on the steering wheel. You can also choose the type of steering setting like sport, comfort etc. which is a neat option. The stock radio is very good. The power seats with lumbar control are great. And for heating the dual compartment heating/cooling is wonderful along with the heated seats with 2 different settings. The hatch back has decent trunk space and the security hatch is nice. I love that I can just press the button on the door while my keys are in my pocket or purse and be able to open the doors without hunting for my keys. This also works for the trunk.

Moderate mileage, tire locks are weird, splash guard is strange.

I love my car! Gas mileage could be better- it gets about 22/23 miles but I am not really complaining either. It rides great, the air works great and living in the south that is a biggie. I feel it is reliable, and comfortable. I have only had it about 2 years and haven't had any major problems with it. The only thing I think is weird about the car is the tire locks- if you do not have the key (which 2/2 mechanics I have been too do not have on hand) you cannot get tires off to be changed/rotated. That and there was at one point something called a "splash guard" underneath the car which a bolt fell out of and will spark, melt, and burn should it rub against the highway whilst you are going 80+ mph. It can be removed but not easily.

Vehicle is a blue 2014 Hyundai Elantra. Has 80k miles on it and recently replaced engine. The drive is smooth and is very easy to handle. The fact that the engine needed to be replaced so early is very concerning. Has a review camera.

I recently received my used Hyundai Elantra a week ago. I had purchased it a month ago but there was a ticking noise coming from the engine and I requested the dealership replace the engine before I received the vehicle. The vehicle had about 80k miles on the vehicle when the ticking noise was noticed. Drive is smooth, sleek design, nice interior. Very comfortable to drive. Pretty big blind spot in from of vehicle where the frame is surrounding the windshield. Difficult to see if there is a person on the crosswalk that you are approaching without having to weave around to look past the blind spot. I am 5'4" which may play a factor into that. Other than that handling and ride is nice and enjoyable.
