Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

The ‘wood’ look to the interior may be off-putting to some buyers, but look past it and you will see that Elantra has a simple, useable interior. The seats are a bit on the spongy side, but the driver’s seat is adjustable for height and the steering wheel has height adjustment. A clear dash, only let sown by fiddly stereo controls.

The seats could be more supportive and soon become uncomfortable on longer trips. Doesn’t offer the interior space of rivals. Adequate rear space for two adult rear passengers or three children.
