The Hyundai Elantra has rapidly evolved in to one of the best offerings in the compact segment. The latest Elantra is roomy, stylish and fuel-efficient. With a wider track and longer wheelbase, the Elantra compares favorably with the top-selling Honda Civic in size. Models include the base SE, upscale Limted and more powerful Sport model. A 1.8l four-cylinder engine is standard on SE and Limited models, whereas the Sport equips a more powerful 2.0l engine. Most models equip a six-speed automatic, although a six-speed manual is available on SE and Sport models. Elantra's four cylinder is more powerful than other similar engines in the segment, yet turns in an estimated fuel economy rating of 28/38 (city/hwy). If you are shopping in this segment, the Elantra bears consideration.
The Elantra wears updated styling for 2014. The GLS model is been renamed SE and a new Sport trim level joins the lineup. The Sport model is powered by a more powerful 2.0l four-cylinder engine. Exterior changes include new front and rear fascias, but the most noticeable changes are to the head lamps and tail lamps. Interior changes include updated HVAC vents, a new shifter and minor trim changes.
