Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Hyundai Elantra delivers good handling and a lot of value for the money.

Pros
Sharp styling updates
Good value for money
Strong turbo engines
Elantra GT’s space and pace
Good fuel economy

Cons
Sedan’s less fun, especially without turbo
SE lacks safety tech
Clunky shifts in Eco
Some cheap touches in sedan

Variety and value are the main ingredients in the 2019 Hyundai Elantra's appeal. Three available engines and six configurations mean it's easy to find an Elantra to suit your needs, whether that's you're focused on fuel economy or just something fun to drive. As for value, the Elantra doesn't deal in subtlety.

Pros
Offers broad range of technology and safety features
Comfortable ride
Quiet cabin with simple, intuitive controls
Offers one of the best warranties in its segment

Cons
Seven-speed automatic can be clunky at low speeds
Lackluster performance from base 2.0-liter engine

By:

The subcompact crossover SUV class is gaining in popularity and the latest entrant, the 2018 Hyundai Kona, has a lot of potential to take the lead. Its exterior style may be somewhat polarizing, but it drives better than the competition. It also delivers a lot for the money and checks all of the boxes that shoppers want in this type of vehicle.
PROS
Optional turbocharged engine provides quick acceleration
Nimble handling makes it enjoyable to drive
Lots of features for your money

CONS
Weak base engine

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2018 Hyundai Kona ranked #1 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Hyundai Kona has a score of 8.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 14 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Agile handling
Potent available turbo-four engine
Intuitive infotainment system

Cons
Lower maximum cargo capacity than rivals
Uninspiring base engine

By: 
usnews.com

With its quirky styling, the Kona is set to perk up some fun. Choose from a 147-hp 2.0-liter inline-four with a six-speed automatic transmission or a 175-hp turbo 1.6-liter inline-four with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Front-wheel drive is standard; all-wheel drive is optional with both engines.

Pros
Tight build and rattle-free cabin,
well-tuned dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Cons
Some interior plastics not up to par,
penalty-box rear seat.
