The 2018 Hyundai Elantra is a compact sedan that competes with the Ford Focus, Toyota Corolla, and Honda Civic. This year, it remains largely unchanged.

Five trims are now available: the SE, Value Edition, Eco, Sport, and Limited.

Exterior
The Elantra retains the same appearance from last year. The frontend features a large, hexagonal grille and narrow-slit, angry headlights. The rear end also has an athletic appearance with its angular taillights and chiseled molding. Standard features include LED daytime running lights, power side mirrors, and 15-inch wheels. HID headlights, heated side mirrors, LED taillights, hands-free smart trunk, a power moonroof, chrome exterior accents, and larger 16-inch alloy wheels are also available. The Sport trim level comes with more aggressive body styling.

Under the Hood
Powering the Elantra SE and Limited trims is a standard 147-hp, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. The Eco trim is driven by a 128-hp, turbocharged 1.4-liter 4-cylinder joined to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. The Sport has a more powerful 201-hp, turbocharged 1.6-liter 4-cylinder with the 6-speed manual or optional 7-speed dual-clutch automatic.

Fuel economy for the SE with manual is an EPA-estimated 26/36 mpg city/highway. The rating improves slightly to 29/38 mpg with the automatic. The Eco has the best rating of 32/40 mpg, while the Sport with manual has the worst with 22/33 mpg. With the dual clutch automatic, the Sport improves to 26/33 mpg.

Interior
The Elantra has a sporty cloth interior with a 60/40 split folding rear seat. The center stack features a standard audio system with MP3 playback and a USB port. It can be upgraded with a 7- or 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, BlueLink connect services for emergencies, security, and diagnostics, and an Infinity premium audio system. Standard features include air conditioning, power windows/locks, and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel. Leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a power driver’s seat, heated front seats, and heated rear seats are available as well.
