Not an Econobox
There was a time in the U.S. when small cars were inexpensive and boasted great fuel economy, but that was about it. Those cars were referred to — often disparagingly — as econoboxes. The inexpensive new Elantra gets very good fuel economy, but it offers so much more in terms of style, performance, safety and features that it is about as far from an econobox as a car can get. All new for the 2017 model year, the Elantra embodies why Hyundai continues to have so much success in the U.S. market.
