By Alan Ng - Jun 16, 2011

If you are thinking of picking up the recently unveiled Hyundai Elantra vehicle, you’ll probably want to check out this brief review of the 2011 car that has already been published. The car was first introduced at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show but now critics are starting to have their say on it.

A brief summary of the Elantra has been made by the guys over at TheWeeklyDriver, and according to them, they think that the 2011 Hyundai Elanta is probably the best car out on the market at the moment, for under $20,000.

Their reasons for this are it’s exterior styling, great leg room both in the front and back seats, unique design around the wheels, an ideal screen position and generally good system quality all round.

A few key facts about the car include an acceleration of 0-60 mph in 8.5 seconds, 138 horsepower, antilock brakes as standard and 40 mpg fuel economy when driving on highways.

However, they’ve also listed their distastes with the Elantra and they include not coming with a spare tire, and the fact that it doesn’t have a sunroof facility. If you can overlook these two areas, then chances are you are going to be very impressed with the model. Check out their article above for the full lowdown.
