“Compact-car buying used to be a compromise with consumers settling for affordable, fuel-efficient cars without style, space, or luxury amenities,” said Scott Margason, director of product planning, Hyundai Motor America. “The 2011 Elantra challenges the current compact sedan segment, offering a sleek, sophisticated look and affordable price tag, while still returning 40 mpg of fuel economy.”

“Hyundai [has] pulled it off and delivered a car that not only challenges the compact status quo, but seemingly has the competition totally outgunned,” said CarsDirect.com editors. “With a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine producing a respectable 148 horsepower, the Elantra has plenty of power for a compact—especially when you take into account that it has more power than the industry benchmarks, the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla.
“But what really sets the Elantra apart is its incredible fuel economy. Rated at 29 City/40 Highway mpg, the Elantra is nearly untouchable in its class. Moreover, with its thoroughly modern body style, the Elantra looks and feels more advanced than its Japanese rivals. Even with a new Civic due next year and a new Corolla planned for 2013, we believe this generation of Elantra will enjoy its spot at the top of the compact car hierarchy.”
