2016 Hyundai Elantra at Thompson Hyundai for Baltimore, MD

The 2016 Elantra adds a well-equipped Value Edition trim level, with the base SE losing a bit of standard and optional content in the deal. In other news, the Limited trim gains standard keyless entry and ignition and automatic climate control, while the Sport sacrifices its standard leather seats. The 2016 Hyundai Elantra still looks fresh compared to other small sedans, and that's quite an achievement for the segment's elder statesman. But the fact remains that the current-generation Elantra debuted way back in 2011, and it exceeds all other major players for length of tenure. A savvy consumer might wonder whether the Elantra can continue to compete against its relatively youthful rivals or whether this head-turning Hyundai is finally past its sell-by date.

Under the Elantra's Hood

Hyundai's Elantra SE and Limited sedans for 2016 both get a 145-horsepower 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine, while Elantra Sport and Elantra GT employ a 173-horsepower 2.0-liter 4-cylinder. We think the better bet is the 2.0-liter engine. It offers significantly better power, at the expense of only a moderate hit to fuel economy. Transmission choices include a 6-speed manual standard on the SE, Sport and GT hatchback. A 6-speed automatic is available for the sedan and GT, and standard on the Limited. The automatic comes with an Eco mode to further enhance fuel economy, and a manual-shifting mode for a bit of added sport.

Design of Hyundai Elantra

Although the 2016 Elantra sedan competes as a compact car, its roomy interior gets it classified as a midsize car by the EPA. The comfortable interior features some higher-end soft-touch materials, but there's also some low-end-feeling plastic on the doors and switches. The front seats are properly shaped for leisurely or aggressive driving, and while rear legroom is only adequate for the sedan, it's downright generous in the GT. Fold-down seats augment the large trunk in the sedan and Coupe, and if you haul extra gear but don't want an SUV, the hatchback-only GT is a good pick.
