2018 Hyundai Elantra Eco Review: High On Economy, Light On Options

– Detroit, Michigan

Verdict 6.5 / 10

Shopping for a compact sedan is all about getting the most bang for your buck, both in terms of purchase price and when it comes to refilling the car at the pump. The 2018 Hyundai Elantra Eco is specifically designed for higher fuel economy; it has a different powertrain than other Elantra models, and hits the magic 40 miles-per-gallon number on the highway.

Unfortunately, the Eco trim level is not particularly well-equipped compared to other similarly efficient small sedans – and it’s not as satisfying to drive as the competition, either. But if your primary interests are high fuel economy and a reasonable sticker price, the Elantra Eco merits consideration.

Pricing 9/10
