Let us go through the pros and cons of Hyundai Elantra by the experts
- It is not a performance car, but it is a great car for anyone that wants a super-looking car that provides much more than expected. Great handling, good performance when you need it, and much more space inside than you would expect. The Value Edition offers many more perks than the standard SE model and for only a small increase in cost.
- Great high-speed stability. Breaks are great. The suspension is a bit stiff but it works for the user as he chooses stability over comfort.
- A luxury car with affordable price. It has looked like any one of the luxurious cars. The sunroof and its curve on the body look awesome.
