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
