Hyundai Elantra

Price: $15,695 (GLS)
Overall Rating: 8.2
Key Takeaway: 40 mpg; a sleek, sophisticated look; and even more value for the money confirm that this little sedan has officially left the Corolla in the dust.
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.

  1. Prediction: Fords will fly off the shelves once the company stops dragging it's feet and starts rolling out the ecoboost engines in their various iterations. The Ecoboost will do for Ford what the v6 did for Nissan about 10 years ago. It's all about what's under the hood and the combination of fuel efficiency with class leading horsepower will finally put bring Ford back to it's former glory.

    Bad stuff?

  2. Alright where are the Jetta's? you can get a number of different configurations for under $20K. They are a better car and a better buy than most on this list. Watch out for the depreciation of the Suzuki.
