Review: 2013 Hyundai Elantra

The 2013 Hyundai Elantra continues the great tradition established by Hyundai over the course of the last decade. The Elantra picks up from the 2012 model, which was named North American Car of the Year. That’s just one of many awards the Elantra has won. Overall, few cars have as many great standard features as the Elantra.

Hyundai puts great effort into modern design, highlighted by long, swooping headlights and  long, flowing lines that stretch across the side.

Everything inside is also high quality, from the cloth or leather seats, steering wheel design and the design of the center console.
