A modest car that is anything but modest.

2018 Hyundai Elantra

I recently purchased my car 3 months ago and it is the first new car I have bought in 17 years. It has all of the latest features, apple carplay which is convenient because I can text and make phone calls while driving hands free. I can use maps from my phone when connected so I do not need to pay extra for a navigation system. It has heated seats that will come in handy in the winter months. It has a sunroof for when I want some fresh air but do not want my windows open so I can hear the radio better. The car itself runs really well. It has an eco mode for when I want to save gas while driving which helps when I commute to work during rush hour traffic. The car can be a little sluggish in eco mode but when you are looking to save on gas it is not that bothersome. It has a sport mode for when I am going on a long car trip and I can go a little faster. I have a push start ignition which is convenient because I do not need to take out my keys or worry about them getting lost because I always keep them in my purse. The trunk space is plentiful. Sometimes I take my mother out and she needs a wheelchair and it fits perfectly in the trunk. All in all I am very happy with my purchase. It has all the luxuries of a more expensive car without the hefty price tag.

2018 Elantra- reliable and smooth!

2018 Hyundai Elantra ECO

My Hyundai Elantra has been an amazing car for the past 9 months that I have had it. The engine runs smooth and it is a nice ride, even on long distances. I love that it has different driving modes, Eco-friendly (saves gas!), normal, and sport mode. With the sports mode, you can really feel a difference in how the car handles acceleration and deceleration. The back seat and trunk space is overall ideal. I have 2 car seats in my back seat, however, and it can get a little crowded in the back of the seats up front are at a comfortable position. I have mainly drive my Elantra to work and home, which is not very far. However, I have taken it on a few long distance drives (360 miles there and 360 miles back) and it was a nice drive. I especially like driving in the eco mode because it really helps save gas and money! The Bluetooth audio is easy to use and pretty straight forward. I have had one situation where my phone disconnected, but otherwise it has been flawless. The car also has a visual representation of the psi in each tire, which is convenient and safe.

Apple carplay is the best!!

2018 Hyundai Elantra

My vehicle is amazing! If you are looking for a car with great gas mileage then this is the car for you. Driving through neighborhoods and city roads I typically get about 30 mpg and on freeways I get 40-45 mpg. I have driven this car many places and it has never failed me. The only slight complaint I have is that if you have it in either normal or economy mode, then it is very slow at speeding up, so what I do when merging onto freeways or quickly changing speeds is change the car into sports mode and then switch it back into eco mode after that. It is a little bit of work, but is very easy and doable. One of my favorite parts about this car is the Apple carplay function! I can text from my car, play Spotify straight from the screen, and so much more it is amazing! The only recent concern that I have had with the car is that for some reason the right back door will not open so I have to get that checked out, but besides that I would 100% recommend this car to anyone and everyone.
