The 2011 Hyundai Elantra is an all-new model, completely different structurally than last year's model, and it hasn't yet been tested by either the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The Car Connection has high expectations for the 2011 Elantra, as other Hyundai products that have been recently redesigned—like the 2011 Hyundai Sonata—have earned excellent crash-test ratings.

Among budget-priced compact cars, not all safety equipment is always standard (stability control, for instance is sometimes optional in this class). But it's all here and standard across the model line: stability control; anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist; a new Steering Effort Assist system that helps steer you back toward stability and control in a skid; front seat-mounted side airbags; and front and rear side-curtain bags.

Outward visibility is quite good in the Elantra, even considering the swoopy shape, though there is a rearview camera system available.

Conclusion

The 2011 Hyundai Elantra is shaping up to be a very good choice for the safety conscious small-car shopper.

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.
