Why the 2017 Hyundai Elantra?

Feature availability

Drove the Hybrid version. Since the battery takes up a large space in the back, they deleted the spare, and give you a spray can of goop, and a 12volt air compressor. ok, end of test drive. The goop and the air compressor would help you limp home if you had a puncture. If you ripped the sidewall, or broke the wheel, you are staying where you are. Most mamufacturers are including at least a fake spare (donut), good for 100 miles or so. No spare, no deal. I have been stranded before.

Powertrain performance

Not great. They choose a 6 speed automatic, not a CVT. Shifts were jerky.

Exterior styling

ok. easy to get in and out of. The sun roof was part of the package. To get the one thing you want, you have to take the rest. I don't like sun roofs. I want a piece of metal over my head, not glass. Every flip a car? You'll never get a sun roof. But where the lost the deal (the manufacturer, not the dealer) was the bundling. They have a basic model, an expensive model with all the bells and whistles, and a mid-price model. Unfortunately, the mid-price omits some of the latest safety features. So, they priced themselves out of my budget.

Why Not the 2017 Hyundai Elantra?

Discounts & incentives

There were published discounts on the Internet. 5 in fact. "For a total savings of..." However, it was impossible to qualify for more than 2 of the mutually exclusive deals. They weren't interested in selling me a car, just making a lot of money.
