A few weeks ago I had to chance to test drive the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Limited. My first reaction to this compact sports-like car was, “WOW!” I was thoroughly impressed with the sleek design, shiny wheels and overall chic exterior. Siting inside the car I was even more impressed! From the soft leather trimmed seats to the modern dashboard, the interior was superb. And although the car is compact, there’s much more room on the inside than I expected.

During the week I drove to and from work here in Columbia, as well as in and around D.C. and Baltimore for work purposes. All week the gas gauge stayed steady and I didn’t have to fill it up once. Of course I had to test the sound system as soon as I got it, which by the way was exceptional! Whenever I’m able to listen to music, podcasts and audio-books on the go, I’m a happy girl!

The one feature I was very impressed with was Apple CarPlay. By plugging up your iPhone to the car, this feature literally takes what’s on your iPhone screen and puts it on the built-in touchscreen display right in front of you. While focusing on the road you can ask Siri for directions, make calls, send and receive texts and of course, listen to music.
This car is perfect for college students, young professionals and even families because of its safe and modern features. Check out some of the other noteworthy features:
– Blind Spot Detection System with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
– Leather Trimmed Steering Wheel & Shift Nob
– Bluetooth Hands-free capabilities
– Apple CarPlay OR Andriod Auto
– Heated Front & Rear Seats
– Steering Wheel Controls
– Hands-Free Smart Trunk
– 7 inch Color Touchscreen
– Rear-view Camera
– Sirius XM & HD Radio
