The 2017 Hyundai Elantra

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra comes at a small compact price, but with BIG style! It's new to the market, but already making waves and winning awards. The newest Elantra received the Biggest Bang for the Buck Award from the Greater Atlanta Automotive Media Association. Featuring a more upright grille, vertical turn signals, LED running lamps, and HID headlamps the '17 Hyundai Elantra is indeed the more stylish choice if you're even considering a Nissan Sentra.

The chiselled hood and body sides, in addition to 17 inch alloy wheels give the '17 Elantra a smooth, suave look that's unmatched in its class.

2017 Nissan Sentra is squarely under the bar for acceptable small cars.

That's a quote directly from Car and Driver, one of the most authoritative auto publications in the world. They rarely encounter modern vehicles with as many flaws as the 2017 Nissan Sentra. Problems with the '17 Sentra included:

  • Chassis is harsh over mild road imperfections
  • Road, tire and wind noise remain omnipresent
  • 191 feet stopping distance from 70 MPH. Worse than any other car in the segment
  • Only 130 horsepower, which would have been competitive two decades ago
  • Hollow sounding hard-plastic door panels
  • Clunky shift lever
  • Featureless expanses of panels
  • Inconsistent single-stitch seams on the seats
  • Seats that are both flat and lumpy
  • Unpredictable handling
