Hyundai Elantra Hatchback (01-06)
Good ride and a more precise gearchange than before.
There's little grip and it's still not quite up to European standards.

New price range:

£10,995 - £13,845

Used price range:

£133 - £1,042

Summary

Parkers Rating:

3 out of 5

A higher quality product than the Lantra it replaced. But it's no driver's ca. Steering lacks feel, there’s more bodyroll than expected and grip is not a strong point. Elantra is a spacious family choice, but best bought used, as depreciation is high compared to European rivals.
