  • Powerful six-speed DCT
  • Super-cool 17.2-inch digital gauge cluster
  • Lots of standard equipment
  • Gas engine is a little buzzy when you lay into it

Summary

The 7th-generation Hyundai Elantra evolves the four-door-coupe look with "Parametric Dynamics" design. It is the first in the compact sedan segment to introduce wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also leads the segment in introducing the first Digital Key that allows owners to unlock, start, and drive with smartphone. The Elantra Hybrid is more efficient than the Honda Insight and Toyota Corolla Hybrid. The gas engine is a little buzzy when you lay into it, but the six-speed DCT is great. N Line models get comfy sport seats with leather bolsters, a thicker-rimmed steering wheel.

Hyundai's Elantra Hybrid is more efficient than the Honda Insight and Toyota Corolla Hybrid. A 1.6-liter I4 and 1.34-kWh battery combine to produce 139 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. Depending on trim, the Hybrid is anywhere from 240 to 340 pounds heavier.

The new Elantra N Line is a little more in-your-face than a Honda Civic Si, but I don't necessarily think that's a bad thing. N Line models get comfy sport seats with leather bolsters, a thicker-rimmed steering wheel, a wireless charging pad, alloy pedals and some red accent stitching. It's a fun sport sedan you really could drive every day, but the N Line lacks some active safety features.

The Elantra is 2.2 inches longer, 1 inch wider and 1 inch lower than the outgoing sedan. It has 99.4 cubic feet of passenger space, which bumps it up to the EPA's midsize classification. A 10.2-inch digital gauge cluster is optional on the SEL and standard on the Limited.
