All kind time of day! Think you’re a happy owner of this car, the purchase of which happened just two weeks ago, so the review may be completed in the future.
So, why the Elantra? Well, first, in our 2018 model year, the 17th year in got a solid discount. But not only that. First and foremost is the atmospheric two-litre engine and a traditional automatic, which allow you to feel confident on the road, and in terms of estimated reliability. This engine really gives the car enough dynamics for driving pleasure.
The execution of the cabin, the ergonomics — everything flawlessly. Although features are, for example, when a comfortable position of the seat and height of 187 cm, right foot when moving from gas to brake applies to the wheel and right hand in turn rests on the knee, if at the same time the maneuver. I would also like to have hours in front of the eyes on the tidy and not to look away on the radio. Another point — Microsoft front head restraints in the area of the button fixing, leading to noises. Eliminated, plastered stand transparent tape (as much ashamed to admit such a collective farm).
But pay no attention to the little things. The car likes a dynamic ride, responsive in response to the accelerator pedal (need to learn to go slow and not fast, Yes). And as for me — with all the vigor of acceleration in the cabin remains quiet (subjective, but I don’t think the cover is bad, especially salomlar engine compartment). On the suspension you can sing a song. The softness was very pleasantly surprised, and after Ffii with its tiny base will finally go as a man.
Good box. Responsive as the gas pedal, and without hesitation reduces the transmission where it is needed. Manual mode quite adequately following what you are asking (I mainly use it for engine braking on hills and sharp decrease in speed if necessary). Comfortable chairs with good finish, the seat enough for this class with the head. When I moved from Fabia, it was noted by all the friends (unsurprisingly, but still). Although the specific shape of the roof can be not like large passengers in the rear row, to be honest, sitting for myself, I was able to find a comfortable position. The big plus I think a variety of compartments for storing things — in armrest deep niche, there is also a drawer under the unit climate control with a nice opening mechanism.
The level of equipment is decent, I think you’ll agree, after reading the details of the configuration comfort+safety. Below I will describe those options, which should complement it, not to pay for Premium but get less. I have, I hope, will you!
The car cons:Little headroom in the back row
Advice to buyer: Take this package (or just «Comfort» without the security package, anyone that). Be it Parking sensors or rear view camera the dealer. Install the radiator protection grille which is located very low to the ground.
The same day Andrew finished: Editing position on the pros and behavior on the track, originally made a typo:
Performs well on the track (especially for those who Believe that instability left over from the previous generation model)
