Hyundai’s Elantra: Light-years beyond ‘cheap’

The 2018 Elantra GT Sport –Hyundai

The Hyundai Elantra is no longer a cheap car in the traditional defamatory meaning of the term — inexpensive, poor materials, flimsily made.

In the 2018 GT Sport hatchback version, driven for this column, it remains relatively affordable at the fully optioned price of $29,210. But it is worth the money.

This is a likable car, arguably the best small Hyundai the South Korean automaker has presented to America since its laughable Excel sedan in 1990.
