Strongest Attributes: Features, Styling

The 2011 Hyundai Elantra has, as we've said, left the Corolla in the dust, and with a base price that's lower than most other vehicles in its class, it simply offers the most bang for the buck for smart-money commuters as well as small families who simply want a small sedan that hits all the marks. Performance is perhaps the Elantra's single sore point; while it handles better than the previous version, and its new six-speed transmissions aid both fuel economy and acceleration, it's not at all a choice for enthusiasts. But for those on a budget, it offers a very impressive list of features for the money—including a newly available navigation system and even heated rear seats—and an interior that doesn't feel chintzy.
