The 2014 Hyundai Elantra is a catchy compact that’s sold as a coupe, sedan and five-door hatchback that lightens up the category with fresh design and commendable fuel economy as added value. There are two engines to choose from — a 1.8-liter engine that produces 145 horsepower and 2-liter Sport engine that produces 173 horsepower.

What's New for 2014

The Elantra badging has changed slightly for 2014 — the GLS is now called the SE and a Sport model has been added to the lineup. On the exterior, fog lamps and front and rear fascia have been tweaked. Inside, Pandora radio is now available. Telematics systems and screens have also been updated.

CarsDirect Tip

Our pick of the Elantra lineup is the plucky Sport, but at $21,700 it's slightly more expensive than a midsize Sonata GLS. For value pricing, the $17,300 Elantra SE is hard to beat – and still includes plenty of creature comforts.
