Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2019 Hyundai Elantra OVERVIEW

The 2019 Hyundai Elantra, the automaker's popular compact, gains fresh styling and expanded safety technology to bolster its appeal. Perhaps most important to buyers, the Elantra maintains its economical price and abundant features for this class.

What's New for 2019

The Elantra gets an exterior makeover, including a restyled front end, new wheel designs, and LED headlights on upper trims. Interiors gain an updated instrument cluster and center control panel, plus an available eight-inch touchscreen with faster processing. Hyundai's SmartSense safety suite is now standard on most models. The newly optional Safe Exit Assist feature warns drivers of approaching rear traffic when exiting.

Choosing Your Hyundai Elantra

Most Elantra models are powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. The 2.0-liter comes with a six-speed manual transmission on the base model or a six-speed automatic gearbox on all other trims. With the automatic, the Elantra is EPA-rated at 28 miles per gallon city, 37 mpg highway, and 32 combined. The manual transmission reduces these estimates to 26/36/29 mpg (city/highway/combined).

The efficiency-themed Elantra Eco carries a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 128 hp and 156 lb-ft of torque. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission does the shifting. The Eco leads the lineup with EPA ratings of 32/40/35 mpg.

The Elantra Sport packs a 1.6-liter turbo-four that produces 201 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. With the standard six-manual manual transmission, the Sport is EPA-rated at 22/30/25 mpg; the optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic bumps efficiency to 26/33/29 mpg.

The Elantra is once again offering in six trim levels:

SE

Starting at $17,985 (all prices include the $885 destination charge), the SE carries a six-speaker sound system, a rearview camera with parking guidelines, power windows and locks, and 15-inch steel wheels with full covers. Models equipped with the optional six-speed automatic ($1,000) also get Bluetooth and cruise control.

SEL

The $20,285 SEL comes standard with the automatic transmission, heated mirrors, automatic headlights, a driver information display, 16-inch alloy wheels, and a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with satellite radio and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. Safety gets a major boost from lane keeping assist, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, driver alertness warning, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

Value Edition

The Value Edition, which starts at $21,285, adds a number of worthwhile features, including automatic dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, a sunroof, push button start, hands-free trunk release, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.

Eco

The high-mileage Eco costs $21,835 and gets the 1.4-liter turbocharged engine and seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Other equipment is similar to the Value Edition, except the Eco runs on 15-inch wheels for enhanced efficiency.

Sport

For $23,285, the Sport offers the potent 1.6-liter turbo, 18-inch wheels, and more aggressive suspension tuning. Other upgrades include leather sport seats, a flat-bottom steering wheel, revised instrumentation, and LED exterior lighting. The six-speed manual returns as standard, and buyers can choose the seven-speed dual-automatic (with paddle shifters) for $1,100. The available Premium Package ($2,250) adds an eight-speaker Infinity sound system, navigation, an eight-inch touchscreen, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and an integrated garage door opener.

Limited

The $23,485 Limited carries everything found in the Value Edition, plus leather seats that are heated up front, a power driver seat, a wireless charging pad, LED headlights and taillights, gloss black interior trim, chrome side moldings, and 17-inch wheels. The Limited also comes standard with the Infinity sound system, auto-dimming mirror, and garage door opener offered on the Sport. The Limited's Ultimate Package ($3,350) tacks on the eight-inch touchscreen, navigation, a power sunroof, memory for the driver's seat and side mirrors, adaptive cruise control, and Safe Exit Assist.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2019 Hyundai Elantra SE's lack of safety technology – which is standard everywhere else in the lineup – makes it an unattractive choice. We consider the SEL to be the real base model. The appropriately named Value Edition continues to offer the best balance of features and affordability.
