The Hyundai Elantra is a compact range that was launched in 1990. The range was known as Lantra until 2001 when the name was changed to Elantra and is currently on its sixth generation. This most recent generation is more defined and less anonymous than any previous generation, helping the vehicle to stand out more in its class. The range was available with a selection of petrol engines up until a diesel engine was released in 2001 to even out the engine line up. The 2.0 litre Turbodiesel engine is a great addition to the range, as this strong engine delivers a great driving experience that was previously lacking. The brand itself has a reputation for reliability and customer service which reassures buyers and drivers alike. In all, the Hyundai Elantra is an affordable, practical and reliable range that is ideal as a used car buy.
