ReviewitOnline Ratings are based on a number of factors including reputation, appearance, model age, engine & other comparative aspects.

The 2012 Hyundai Elantra Sedan impresses everyone with its 1.8 Li 4 cylinder engine that has a 148 horsepower output and 131 torque. The fuel efficiency is impressive as well, with a mileage rating of 29-city- and 40-highway-mpg; this is a 7% improvement compared to the previous model. All thanks to the special fuel efficiency package included in the vehicle, Hyundai managed to improve the eco-friendliness of the engine to be nearly emission free.

What really makes the 2012 Hyundai Elantra a definite winner is the impressive exterior and interior designs. Visually, the Hyundai Elantra is an apple-in-the-eye. The sharp styling combines futuristic looks with sporty fashion. It is actually considered a cheaper alternative to the Honda Civic. Inside, the Hyundai Elantra has an impressive design as well. The 2012 Hyundai Elantra has a boldly designed cabin with controls that are very easy to use. The materials used for the interior offer comfort and style, but are not really the top of the class.

The Hyundai Elantra Sedan is a roomy vehicle which can accommodate passengers comfortably, with added cargo space in the trunk-one that is outstanding for a sedan. The Elantra sedan is currently offered in two body styles: the 4-door Elantra Sedan and the 5-door Elantra Touring Wagon. Though the two models have some mechanical differences, both models are already air conditioned and equipped with cruise control. Another impressive feature of the Hyundai Elantra Sedan is the long warranty life.

However, the Hyundai Elantra still has some flaws that are worth mentioning, despite the fact that it managed to surpass all standards. First, the engine power falls behind other competitors. Also, the exterior look of Elantra is traditional-looking compared to other Hyundai car designs today.

Overall, driving the 2012 Hyundai Elantra offers excitement and comfort. The 1.8 Li engine is perfect for daily driving with its improved fuel efficiency, while the 6-speed transmission offers smooth transition. The compact car is perfect for long drives with a relatively noiseless cabin. For an inexpensive sedan that is stylishly designed and has good engine performance, the Hyundai Elantra Sedan is the perfect alternative.
