REVISIT: 2019 Hyundai Elantra Active review

It was the mid-life facelift that signalled the Elantra sedan would be the testbed for Hyundai's design experiments. Now we know what the new one looks like, so let's revisit this 2018 refresh of the outgoing model.

2019 Hyundai Elantra Sport Premium review

The latest Elantra Sport is at the pointy end of the warmed-up performance segment delivering solid fun behind the wheel, as well as practicality and good looks. Plenty of standard kit, too, if you go with this Premium variant.

2019 Hyundai Elantra Sport review

Hyundai once owned the warm-sedan segment. Now, it has some competition. How does it plan to defend its turf?

REVIEW: 2019 Hyundai Elantra Sport (SR replacement)

The Elantra Sport, despite its polarising facelift, is goo buying. Its balance between ride and handling is judged to perfection, the exterior is sharp, and the cabin feels slightly more upmarket than its Kia Cerato GT cousin. Plus, it still handles. What more could you want?

Honda Civic RS v Hyundai Elantra SR Turbo comparison

It was only July when the Honda Civic VTi-S outshone both the Skoda Octavia Ambition and Hyundai Elantra Active. Here though, we have just two rivals going head-to-head: the 2016 Honda Civic RS and 2017 Hyundai Elantra SR Turbo. And, based on their most recent individual reviews – the Civic RS scoring 8/10 from Mike Costello, the Elantra SR Turbo scoring the same from Matt Campbell – this has the potential to be a rather close-fought little battle...

2003 Hyundai Elantra GLS review

  I purchased my Elantra second-hand in 2015, and it had two previous owners. My car had additional extras from the previous owner including a new CD radio, tinted windows and tow bar. The most impressive aspect of this car is that it is entirely free of any rust and the paintwork is still high in lustre and blemish free...

2005 Hyundai Elantra FX 2.0 HVT review

  The 2005 Hyundai Elantra 2.0 FX hatchback has been our daily driver for the past six years. We purchased it after arriving back from London as an interim car before we bought a luxury leather seat (nice) car. It is a very reliable and easy to drive car and has now done 216,000km...

2017 Hyundai Elantra Elite 2.0 MPi review

I had a Ford Territory and always owned Australian-made, and now that I do not have that option and my lifestyle has changed, I decided to go with what best suits my lifestyle and the best value for my hard-earned dollar without breaking the bank. My partner purchased an i30 and I was impressed driving that, but needed something bigger...

2016 Hyundai Elantra SR review

Background In 2016, I decided to trade in my manual Alfa Romeo for an automatic, as my wife wasn't too comfortable with manual transmissions. We were looking for something in the vicinity of $30–$40K, not a hatchback (wife doesn't like them) and with a bit of poke. After much contemplation, we ended up with an A3, a base WRX and the recently launched Elantra SR...
