Just the HD drive video and 40 pics of this plucky little sedan. One pic for every highway MPG this advanced-tech compact can achieve? Yes indeed. 32-mpg city and 40-mpg highway are the audited, confirmed EPA numbers on this most-efficient Elantra ever.
No full review today. Our time in the car was too brief to really make many lasting impressions. Do recall loving that seven-speed DCT and 128-pony, 1.4-liter turbo engine. Less the stinky brakes/clutches after a fast drive and those embarrassingly tiny alloy wheels. At least they painted up the mini alloys a discrete anthracite grey to hide the shame, though!
Overall, the appearance is not a huge hit. Nor is the cabin. Whereas the previous Elantra felt nearly-midsize in its scale and achievements, this new Elantra is firmly a compact in style, ambiance and drive manners.
