The Hyundai Elantra (or Hyundai Avante as it’s sold in South Korea) is a compact car produced by the South Korean manufacturer Hyundai. The car was born in 1990 and is currently in its fifth generation. For a compact car, the Elantra has quite a lot of room! The spacious interior seats five and it has a class-topping cargo capacity. The outside isn’t too bad, either. In fact the sleek lines and low profile really make for an attractive car. The Elantra comes equipped with an extensive list of top end safety equipment. All that for a price that is very reasonable is surely why the Elantra is one of the leading sellers in the United States.
