When the Hyundai Elantra first graced the auto scene nearly three decades ago, it received no standing ovations. At the time, no one wrote home about the stunning lines and features of this mid-size sedan. Today, it’s one of the top compact cars in the business, outshining competitors like the Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic. If you want a finely tuned car that delivers exceptional value, consider a pre-owned 2016 Hyundai Elantra.
This Hyundai comes with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, which produces 148 horsepower and131 pound-feet of torque. A review by The Car Connection comments that the Elantra delivers a smooth ride and accelerates well through both a manual and automatic transmission. It also laud’s the car nearly silent cabin, which employs cutting-edge sound insulation to guarantee a quiet ride for you and your passengers.
Safety is always a concern and the Elantra’s crash test scores will put anyone’s mind at ease. It received a perfect five-star overall rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It also garnered a Top Safety Pick from the sticklers at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, receiving a “Good” score (the top possible rating) in all but one category.
Inside the Elantra, front seat passengers will be able to spread out, while back seat passengers are treated to ample head and legroom. The interior is fitted with copious storage cubbies, including a covered bin located in front of the shift lever. Inside, you’ll also find a power point, USB port, and aux jack.
