From Zero To Hero — The 2012 hyundai elantra is a very well rounded car, it offers a lot of value for money and turns heads on the streets. The engine provides plenty of punch and consumes fuel miserly. However it also has it own share of flaws like low headroom for both front and rear seats.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The 2012 Hyundai Elantra is a handsome car and is equipped with a spritely and fuel efficient engine. It offers good leg and shoulder room as well as capacious trunk space. The manual transmission engages with positive shifts and the handling is good

Cons: The headroom is low, no split folding rear seats for the base model

Had my Elantra for 3.5 years and within the first 8 months of owning it, I had to replace my front struts twice. And again right before I bought my new S60. Like driving an aluminum can around compared to my Volvo.
