Тест-драйв Hyundai Elantra от RoadFly.com

Hyundai’s Elantra, redesigned for 2011, is taking at the compact segment’s big boys.

It undercuts heavyweights like the Civic and Corolla in price, and offers a fuel economy rating that Hyundai has vigorously defended. The company insists that all Elantras regardless of equipment level or transmission will achieve the same 40mpg highway mileage rating.

True to Hyundai form, it offers lots of cool features for the money (heated front AND rear seats, navigation, and a ‘smart key’ system) and the output of its 1.8L inline-four is surprisingly vigorous, at 148 horsepower and 131 lb.-ft of torque.

It’s not exactly fast, but Hyundai sells other cars for that. Our test car started at $17,080, but the Elantra line starts at just $15,550—an MSRP more at home in the subcompact segment, and an extraordinary value.

Check out Emme Hall’s review of the Elantra, including her famous laundry-basket rating and some hilarious out-takes!
