2015 Hyundai Elantra Buyer's Guide

The 2015 Hyundai Elantra is a stylish compact car that was last redesigned for the 2011 model year, yet still looks modern thanks to a recent refresh. Unfortunately its sporty looks aren’t reflected in the way it drives, but the powertrains are smooth, and the ride is comfortable. The interior is spacious (as large as some mid-size sedans) and well put together, and the cabin is quiet and road noise is well isolated. Adults have plenty of leg room, even in the back, though head room for those in the rear might be a bit tight (though still better than most in the class). To make the rear even more comfortable, heated rear seats are an option (and one not often found in compact cars).

What makes it move?

Most Elantras are powered by a 1.8 liter 4-cylinder engine that turns out 145 horsepower and 130 lb-ft of torque. Sport models come with a 2.0 liter direct injection 4-cylinder that pumps out 173 horsepower and 154 lb-ft of torque. All engines send power to the front wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission or an optional (except on Limited versions, where its the default transmission) 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC and the Active ECO System. Fuel economy is best in the SE with an automatic, where the Elantra is rated at 28 mpg city, 38 highway, and 32 combined.

Why buy the 2015 Hyundai Elantra?

Heated power side mirrors are standard on all models. Leather seating surfaces are standard on Limited and Sport trims, as is a rearview camera (optional on SE versions). Safety features include Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA), and Hillstart Assist Control (HAC). Cars with the 1.8 liter engine get Driver Selectable Steering Mode (DSSM) which allows the driver to choose between Comfort, Normal, and Sport modes to adapt the steering to their driving perference. The Hyundai Elantra is a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS, and it is rated Good in all categories, except for the small overlap front test where it is rated as Acceptable. To show that Hyundai stands behind their vehicles, the Elantra comes with a 10 year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty, a 5 year/60,000 mile new vehicle limited warranty, a 7 year/unlimited mile anti-perforation warranty, and 5 years of 24 hour roadside assistance.
