2011 Hyundai Elantra

Last Updated:

That is one slick compact sedan.
I think the new Elantra, just like the new Sonata, will open a lot of minds about buying a Korean car.
The quality seems to be at least the equal of most other brands now.
But their new designs seem to be ahead of most.

Just compare this to a Corolla….

  1. Wow! That does look good. I'm guessing it's gonna be a little short on rear seat headroom. I'm 6'4". I'd probably need a couple of "Gurney bubbles" in the rear roof.

  2. The interior on this upcoming Elantra looks TERRIBLE.

    I had such high hopes for this vehicle but as far as the interior goes, it is a tremendous letdown.

    I am really curious to see what the 9th generation Civic looks like.

  3. If people put aside their prejudices about Korean cars, the Cruze would be in trouble. The Elantra Blue is supposed to get a 140 hp 1.6 GDI engine with an estimated 40 mpg highway. Same mileage and power as the Cruze's 1.4 turbo without the extra cost of the turbo. The regular Elantra is supposed to get a 165 hp 2.0 GDI engine with mileage close to 40 mpg highway.

    Considering the good reviews the new Tucson is getting, the new Elantra should really stir things up in the compact market.

  4. WOW!!! What an AMAZING car! Hyundai this car looks U N B E L E I V A B L E!!!! From the picture you can clearly see that this is probably going to be the most beautiful car ever made!! You can clearly see it has wheels! and, and, Windows! bumps and some curves. No crappy Japanese car has ever looked this good. Yup Hyundai you are going to WHIP the competetion with this baby.

  5. Wow. The Cruze is in trouble. Why? because it is coming out too late. The cruze will only have a few months to be the most fuel efficient car in its class. I agree I don't really like the interior as of yet. I really think the Cruze is overrated. Don't forget it's only a Daewoo with a chevy grille. Hyundai/Kia is wayy better than Daewoo.

  6. What will ruin the overall shape will be some hideous swoop or crease similar to what is on the Genesis Coupe. That car has one really nice overall shape, eye catching and conteporary in a field of reruns from Ford,Chevy,Chrysler. It would have been a cleaner, easier on the eyes design without that droopy back passenger window and that hack line running into the back flank of the car.
