    Hyundai Elantra Comparisons

    • With a base sticker of about $12,000, the Elantra stacks up well against such Japanese stalwarts as the Toyota Corolla, not to mention one of our personal favorites, the Ford Focus.

      - Automobile
    • Pound-for-pound it matches the Honda Civic in several areas on the overall refinement scale.

      - Edmunds.com
    • Much like the Focus ZX3 and the VW Jetta, the Elantra's chassis feels light yet sturdy.

      - Automobile
    • Hyundais long have meant function; GT adds a dash of fun.
