2008 Hyundai Elantra Review

A CAR WE CAN ALL FEEL GOOD ABOUT. The 2008 Elantra unquestionably a car with something for everybody. Take your seat. Then prepare to take hold of the wheel as Elantra’s 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder engine gives you plenty of thrills along with an impressive emissions rating. Even more inspiring is Elantra’s 36 Miles Per Gallon. Keeping everything under control is a confidence inspiring 4-wheel independent suspension. All of this is definitely worth a standing ovation if you weren’t already sitting so comfortably in the driver’s seat. The moment you sink into the Elantra’s comfortable spacious interior you may never want to leave. Just don’t forget to come out every once in a while—or at the very least open the sunroof. The Elantra’s standard six airbag system includes advanced dual front airbags front side-impact airbags and front and rear side-curtain airbags. The 2008 Hyundai Elantra Showcases an assertive new hood design with a chrome-accented grille and a sleek sculpted profile the Elantra strikes a very confident pose. Larger and more sophisticated than ever before it’s Bound to leave a lasting impression with you and anyone else who sees it. Of course it’s still safe to say that the Elantra’s best angle just might be what you see from behind the wheel.
