Hyundai's strong warranty also makes Elantra a recommended pick

The Hyundai Elantra lineup has been reconfigured a bit for 2010 with the introduction of a new base Elantra Blue model. Formerly base GLS models have moved more upmarket, while the sportier top of the range is still the Elantra SE.

ConsumerGuide proclaims that "a robust feel, attractive prices and Hyundai's strong warranty also make Elantra a recommended pick." MotherProof cuts right to the chase and explains, "What strikes me about the Elantra is the fact that I never say to myself, 'I wish it had ...' I don't miss anything that isn't already there."

The base Blue includes power heated mirrors, power locks and windows, keyless entry, a split-folding rear seatback, and a tilt (though not telescopic) steering wheel. Options include air conditioning, an upgraded 172-watt audio system with MP3 compatibility, iPod and USB inputs, and cruise control.

The Washington Post reports that "all [Hyundai] Elantras have remote keyless entry and power windows," adding that "air conditioning, cruise control, and CD player are optional" for the Hyundai Elantra GLS but are "standard on SE."

Cars.com is particularly enthusiastic about the 2009 Hyundai's "abundant convenience features, most of which are rarities at this price—things like lighted vanity mirrors, a telescoping steering wheel, a sunglass holder and a rear armrest with cup holders."

The upgraded GLS adds most of those options plus a few more minor features, such as fog lamps, while the top-of-the-line SE includes steering-wheel audio controls, leather trim, telescopic steering-wheel adjustment, sport-tuned steering and suspension, and 16-inch alloy wheels. At the top of the range you can get a sunroof and heated seats. Bluetooth is offered only as a port-installed option, and it's a mediocre headliner-speaker system rather than integrated with the audio system.

Conclusion

The 2010 Hyundai Elantra comes well equipped, but it's missing some tech-savvy essentials like a well-integrated Bluetooth interface.

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.
