Hyundai Elantra Ties For First Choice In Compact Sedan Comparison Test

Posted on August 29, 2011

Tying for first place along with the Honda Civic, the Hyundai Elantra came out on top in Kelley Blue Book’s all-new 2011/2012 Compact Sedan Comparison Test. The Elantra beat out the Chevrolet Cruze and also the Ford Focus in’s very thorough vehicle comparison list. Scoring a 7.5 out of 10 possible points in the ratings, the Elantra won favor with editors throughout sub-categories based on exterior, interior, performance, comfort/convenience, and value.

KBB experts said, “When the 2011 Hyundai Elantra Limited sedan showed up for our test, it arrived as a gut-shot to the entire compact sedan class. It started with the all-new Elantra shape, a small-sedan variation of the look that we already love on the Genesis and Sonata. It continued with a leather-lined, feature-filled interior that would have been considered excessive in a car from the next class up.” The experts went on to say, “At $22,830, the Hyundai Elantra Limited was the least expensive compact sedan in our quartet. The Chevy Cruze LTZ had a nervous breakdown. We spotted sweat on the Ford Focus SEL’s lip spoiler. And even the 2012 Honda Civic was having trouble catching its breath.”

Mike O’Brian, Vice President of Product and Corporate Planning for Hyundai Motor America said that the 2011 Elantra stands out with characteristics “often missing from this competitive segment.” He was thrilled that recognize the Elantra and that the standard 40-miles-per-gallon highway fuel economy, luxury and convenience features, and advanced design is all found at such an attractive value. O’Brian stated,”The 2011 Elantra stands out in the compact category, offering innovation, content and style…We are thrilled that recognizes that standard…can be found in a compact sedan at such an accessible price point.”
