6. Hyundai Elantra
Sleek styling, a smart interior, and a value packed options list are what makes the Hyundai Elantra so appealing. The 145 horsepower 4 cylinder engine will get you where you need to go, but drivers looking for the sports car feel should look elsewhere. The fuel economy is great for a car this size, coming in at 24 mpg city and 35 mpg highway. The suspension is tuned to dampen road imperfections, giving the Elantra a great ride feel. Hard cornering or aggressive driving will cause some body roll, as the vehicle isn’t tuned like a sports car. Leather seats, LED accented headlights, a sunroof, power driver’s seat, push button ignition, and a 4.3 inch touch-screen display are all standard features of the Elantra, giving it a luxury feel for a budget price.
