2014 Hyundai Elantra Limited Review: Introduction
The 2014 Hyundai Elantra proves that the Korean automaker hasn’t abandoned its compact car roots in an effort to better itself in the more premium segments of the automotive market. Much has been made of full-size sedans like the Equus and the Genesis, and while they are deserving of attention it’s important not to forget the more humble Hyundai Elantra, whose refresh for the current model year underscores that the car has been holding the fort in the entry-level segment since its 2011 redesign.
You would be hard pressed to determine that this little four-door’s platform is four years old, given how well it holds up face with newer competitors like the Chevrolet Cruze, the Toyota Corolla, and the Honda Civic, and while it might be outclassed by a few of the latest and greatest compacts out there, there’s no doubt that the 2014 Hyundai Elantra remains a strong choice in a highly competitive field. This is especially true for value-focused shoppers seeking to stretch their budget and obtain as many features as they can for their money.
