2018 Hyundai Elantra Sport Sedan FWD Review
says:
Excellent car! Handles like it’s on rails! Nice power from the 1.6 turbo. I owed the premium edition. Car was purchased new and traded it with 38,000 trouble free miles for a 2019 Jetta GLI. Pros: excellent value, excellent stereo, fuel mileage, nice heated seats. Cons: rough ride, dual clutch transmission would search for proper gear sometimes when taking off.

OK car but kind of tinny. Like driving a skateboard. Sitting in vehicle quite low. Not a good car for adults.

2018 Hyundai Elantra SEL Sedan FWD Review
says:
Had a 2015 so it was like coming home, no learning curve, an updated version with a few changes, particularly to windshield and dash, a better headrest, and a lot more tech. than my 15. Same smooth ride with quick pick up and easy handling and a new look to the front bumper area. My only negatives are that it is so low to the ground in front it is a real pain in parking lots with bumper curbs or the slightest pothole or dip. Drags on driveways with any pitch at all! Wish there was a cushier seat cushion, too. Great gas mileage and love the lane changing assist!! I feel safe with all the airbags and superstrength steel panels in the sides. Tried a couple Kia Souls, looked at a Honda Fit Hatchback, and yearned for a Corolla which was just beyond my reach... but kept coming back to the 2018 Hyundai Elantra.. and purchased it today!!

Back Seats Ranked 2018 Kia Soul + better.
"Felt roomier, with a better wuality cushion"
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2018 Kia Soul + better.

Family Car Ranked 2018 Kia Soul + better.
"Just seemed to use the space better to create a roomy little SUV"
Value Ranked 2018 Kia Soul + worse.
"Priced just a little lower in the market I searched "

Would Buy Ranked 2016 Kia Forte5 EX better.
"Depreciation on the 2016 is already taken out and the price is affordable now. I have one that is very low milage and Tons of Options that I cant afford with the 2018 Elantra SEL plus the car will depreciate alot for the next 3 years. Cars are not a good investment anyway, so for me it can down to what I could afford plus getting the most options"

2018 Hyundai Elantra SE Sedan FWD Review
says:
I absolutely love this car, it is way better than the 2011 Hyundai Sonata. I have not had any problems with this car at all. I got it brand new with less miles than the Hyundai Sonata. It is spacious, drives smooth, doesnt stall or shut off. I would definitely recommend this car to my family and friends.

Looks/Style Ranked 2011 Hyundai Sonata SE FWD worse.
"Because of the style and color of the car and because theres nothing wrong with it. "
Family Car Ranked 2011 Hyundai Sonata SE FWD worse.
"On the mirrors it lets you know when a car is next to you in your blind spot. The light starts to flash letting you know you are not safe to turn. The camera also lets you know when it is safe to reverse. The Hyundai Sonata did not have any of those features."
