As I mentioned in my previous, post the family and I went away to the beautiful Kalahari. This trip was about 2 hours from our house, and traveling with kids you want comfort in a vehicle. I had the opportunity to take the 2017 Hyundai Elantra on the road for this trip. It’s a small compact car, but was actually comfortable. The passenger space in the back was small but comfortable and standard. This car is perfect for a couple that is just starting out or maybe for a college graduate.
- Quiet, comfortable cabin, especially at highway speeds
- Lots of available technology and safety features
- Classy and thoughtfully laid-out interior design
- Underwhelming performance from base engine
- Dual-clutch transmission feels clunky during slow-speed acceleration
- More steering effort required than in most cars in this class
- Limited cabin space
Luxury car technology
Elantra is the compact sedan with just about every popular luxury and technology feature. Available features include: Android Auto™, Apple CarPlay™, navigation system with 8-inch touchscreen with segment-first Clari-Fi™ Music Restoration Technology and rearview camera, plus Smart Cruise Control, just to name a few.
Safety is key, especially being a parent of 2 little ones. The Elantra has Seven airbags including a driver’s knee airbag. The list of advanced safety features is long and impressive, and includes available Blind Spot Detection and Automatic Emergency Braking with segment-first Pedestrian Detection—a feature not offered on most compact class sedans.
