Expert Quotes:

The Limited trim also brings along a 360-watt, six-speaker stereo system with an external amp should you decide to rock your passengers' socks straight off their body.
Autoblog

Like most Hyundais, it has about a $1,000-$1,500 price advantage with comparable equipment.
Consumer Reports

Optioned smartly, the Elantra is more than just a lot of car for the money.
Edmunds' Inside Line

one of the industry’s most straightforward iPod interfaces

The infotainment interface is merely okay unless you order navigation-some of the functions require multiple steps to access.

Hyundai has become known, in any of its vehicles, for sweetening the package with a few more features than you'll find standard elsewhere in that model's class. That's again the case with the 2011 Hyundai Elantra; even the base GLS comes with power windows, locks, power mirrors, keyless entry, and (on automatic models) air conditioning, cruise control, and telescopic steering adjustment.

Oddly, Hyundai makes the telescopic adjustment optional on manual-transmission cars, available as part of a Popular Equipment Package. The Limited model adds a sunroof, leather seats and trim, heated front and rear seats, fog lamps, mirror-mounted turn signals, and 17-inch alloy wheels with Continental tires. Top options on the Elantra Limited, all part of a Premium Package, bring the nav system, premium audio, and proximity key entry and push-button start. Even on the GLS, you can get a Navigation Package.

To help make the whole ordeal of supply and demand a little easier for all involved, the new Elantra is being offered in just seven build combinations. The down side of this strategy is that there are still holes; you can't, for instance, get the navigation system if you want a manual transmission.

Hyundai boasts that the nav system has the largest screen size in this class. For the price, its beautiful. And it really is a great system, incorporating voice recognition for phone, audio, and nav control, plus XM NavTraffic, NavWeather, Sports and Stocks integration, Bluetooth audio streaming, 16GB of onboard flash memory, Satellite Radio capability, and the capability to play JPEG or BMP slideshows from thumb drives.

The 2011 Hyundai Elantra Limited Premium that we spent the most time with cost $22,700, while the base 2011 Elantra GLS starts at $15,550 (both prices including destination).

Conclusion

With a long standard-feature list, and some excellent tech and connectivity options at the top of the line, the 2011 Hyundai Elantra offers more for less.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
