Five Things We Like About The New 2011 Hyundai Elantra (Video)

Follow John

The 2011 Hyundai Elantra compact sedan, entirely redesigned for this model year, has won rave reviews and is selling like gangbusters.

We found many things to like in the stylish little Hyundai, and as part of our series of quick road-test and review videos, we listed the top five.

Check out the video below to see what we liked, from its exterior styling to the interior space.

Fuel economy, of course, is a big part of the equation. Over a mixed test route of more than 300 miles, with slightly more highway driving than around-town use, we got just a shade north of 34 miles per gallon.

Whether it's fitted with a six-speed manual or Hyundai's own six-speed automatic, the 2011 Elantra is rated by the EPA at 40 miles per gallon on the highway cycle.

  1. The nice thing about the new Elantra is ALL models get the high 40mpg HWY mileage for both automatic and stick! With the new Focus, Civic and Cruz models coming out, ONLY SPECIAL and probably rare and expensive trims/transmission configurations are rated at 40+MPG.

  2. Bought my 2011 Elantra in Feb and have already got 5,00 miles on it. I have been driving it to work around 40 miles each way avg mpg around 33-34.
    We just love it we got the limited it does have a trunk button and auto up/down window diver door. Sun roof and 7" navigation system. I can't think of anything that is missing but maybe a locking glove box.
