I was able to try out the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Eco for a week and get a feel for its sleek design and safety features. Driving yourself around is one thing, but when you are carrying precious cargo like family, you tend to be extra cautious. That's why I was so thrilled at all of the features this car had to offer and not only was it comfortable but it was very economical!
Here was my first glimpse:
I must say I didn't mind this gorgeous thing sitting in my driveway! Now, it's nice to have something look good but you want it to drive good too!
Behind the wheel I felt extremely comfortable. The seat was easy on my back and the steering wheel was easy to grip. The controls were easy to notice and I didn't have any issue figuring out the cruise control, so it was time to enjoy the ride on the highway and listen to some tunes!
The Sirius XM was a bonus and I loved the touch screen. My husband specifically liked it because there were so many stations to choose from and the touch screen made it easy to navigate through.
Even with the car off, you can still tell just how sleek the design is by the look of the inside.
Another great feature was being able to control my own heat opposite of my husbands'. I'm usually the one that is cold and he's usually the one that's warm so this worked perfectly. We both had plenty of leg room as well!
There was ample space in the trunk for groceries, or if you have kids' sports gear to haul around, because it was surprisingly deep and roomy so there is plenty of storage for your entire family! This would be a fun road trip car too!
Driving on the highway, I got about 42 miles to the gallon making this an extremely economical ride. It did rain a bit while I had this car, and the tires clung to the road and didn't give me any concern. This car turned on a dime and handled the curves in the country roads great!
