Good ride and a more precise gearchange than before.


There's little grip and it's still not quite up to European standards.

A higher quality product than the Lantra it replaced. But it’s no driver’s ca. Steering lacks feel, there’s more bodyroll than expected and grip is not a strong point. Elantra is a spacious family choice, but best bought used, as depreciation is high compared to European rivals.
