Driving in the new Hyundai Elantra is like driving in a luxury vehicle but with out the costs involved. You have comfort, looks (inside and out), speed & handling, safety, user friendly dashboard, and well… just fun to drive!
So I test drove the Limited with some added features like the Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS). At first was a little scared to try but then it was fun to use. I kept it on all the time.
So basically you can be driving down the highway and take your hands off the wheel (not recommended but emergency cases). It will steer for you. Then it beeps and alarms you to put your hands back on the wheel. Great for those that still text (bad, bad!) or might fall asleep at the wheel. Also, while you’re driving with this on you can feel the wheel trying to keep you in your lane. It’s not much but just enough to make you aware that a crazy driver or not paying attention. lol I think its a great feature and would save lives.

What a concept! As you turn the corner your lighting system will turn as well to follow you. It’s also designed to dim the lights if you have the high beam on when it senses a car coming ahead of you.
A very stylish car that fits all ages. With all the safety features I’d be very comfortable with a vehicle like this in the hands of my kids. I’m sure they wouldn’t complain either since it looks sporty as well. They did have fun riding in it and was super sad to give it up.
