Performance: Hyundai Elantra

The 2018 Elantra is available in either a sedan or a hatchback body style, so you can choose the option that best suits your lifestyle. For additional cargo capacity, you'll want to opt for the hatchback, but the sedan makes a great commuter car. The Elantra comes with a front-wheel drivetrain.

Overall, the Elantra is EPA-estimated to achieve a fuel economy of 28 city/37 highway MPG, which are some of the highest ratings from a non-hybrid vehicle.

What's Inside?

The compact Elantra offers seating for five occupants on standard cloth upholstery. For a luxury touch, you can upgrade to leather upholstery and add heated front and rear seats and a power-adjustable driver's seat for more comfort. The Elantra sedan offers a trunk measuring 14.4 cubic feet, which is large for a compact sedan.
