Performs Better Than Expected — Was not sure how it would perform as the miles keep adding up, but even after almost 55000 miles, there has not been a single problem! Hyundai rocks!

Pros: Options

Cons: 138 hp

I Love This Car — Had the car for edging toward two years now. still love it as much as day one. Accel, Braking, Handling are all better then expected for a car in this price range. id give it an 8/10 personally. but i am biased in that i just love the thing.

Pros: most things

Cons: its no race car

"ALL WHEEL DRIVE!!!"
Would Buy Ranked 2013 Subaru Legacy better.
"I have owned Subarus, as well as Honda, Nissan, Chrysler, Lincoln, Honda, etc...hands down, subaru best handled on the road, was most affordable, had the least high mileage problems, and was the car I owned the longest. I feel safer putting my teenage drivers in a subaru over anything else. If I could afford to get out of my Jeep loan, Id buy a subaru immediately."

2006 Hyundai Elantra GLS Sedan FWD Review
Own and purchased the car with 40k miles and having sat in a driveway for years. Parts are dirt cheap and and easy to maintain. Once all of the previous damage was fixed, the car has driven beautifully and quietly for almost a year now. Fantastic visibility and surprisingly utile, this car would make a great car for somebody needing a reliable car, a teenagers first car, or someone who just needs a low profile vehicle to use. Rated 10/10, hope to drive for hundreds of thousands more miles.

Power Ranked 2007 Honda Accord EX better.
"Car had a bit more torque and engine power when accelerated on flat road."
Handling Ranked 2007 Honda Accord EX worse.
"Although a bit less tight, the handling seems to be better overall, especially once new struts were installed. Honda is tighter but rougher around the edges. Hyundai is much smoother, albeit less tight. For me, thats a better and more comfortable drive"
Looks/Style Ranked 2007 Honda Accord EX worse.
"Honda cars are very similar and are more common than anything else."
Front Seats Ranked 2007 Honda Accord EX worse.
"Much more space and Honda seats are kind of hard on the back."
Back Seats Ranked 2007 Honda Accord EX worse.
"Roomier and not as compact, especially height wise"
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2007 Honda Accord EX worse.
"Trunk is larger and seats arent as cramped in the back"
Family Car Ranked 2007 Honda Accord EX worse.
"Space, and comfort in a packed car"
Value Ranked 2007 Honda Accord EX worse.
"Ease of maintenance and parts are easy to come by online for cheap."
Would Buy Ranked 2007 Honda Accord EX worse.
"Overall better car, simply put"
