...All trim levels can be equipped with either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic transmission that routes power to the front wheels. Note that automatic-equipped Elantras sold in California and the Northeastern states carry SULEV/PZEV certification and are rated for just 132 hp. Fuel economy ratings are 28 mpg city and 36 mpg highway, regardless of transmission choice. Safety: Every '07 Elantra comes with antilock disc brakes, front-seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags and anti-whiplash front head restraints.

...Under the Hood The Elantra is powered by a 138-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder teamed with a five-speed manual transmission. A four-speed automatic is optional on all trim levels. The engine is a modern powerplant with continuously variable valve timing, the latest must-have technology in this vehicle category. Hyundai says the Elantra is projected to qualify as a Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle in California, a rare distinction that means it pollutes so little it earns credits for the manufacturer with the EPA. Hyundai says the Elantra's body stiffness is almost 50 percent above the...

...Air conditioning, cruise control, steering mounted controls, and CD player are the major comforts available. For the first time, the Elantra line does have the option of heated seats, though not on all of the trims. In today's market, the Elantra isn't overly burdened with comforts, but it certainly has enough for any normal person. And as far as safety goes, this front wheel drive has ABS and front and side airbags.Owners are very fond of the 2007 Hyundai Elantra. The biggest complaint I found was that it didn't have enough power, but it is a 4 cylinder after all. Several people also...
...Indeed! As far as safety goes, I want to note that there are six standard airbags in the Elantra, including side-curtain airbags for the back seat. Standard! I love it. Also, I'm happy to tell you that the Elantra comes with ABS. One safety hiccup with the Elantra is the back seat. Installing car seats is easy enough, and the kids have just enough personal space. Three car seats will not fit in the back seat. Three boosters just might if they don't have any cup holders. So take note of the fact that while the Elantra more interior space in its class, it's still not a school bus. The main...
...The Elantra, which is a step above the compact Accent and intended for people who can afford to spend a bit more, has been one of Hyundai's top-selling models for years. The new model, with its vast improvements, is expected to help build significantly on the Elantra's previous success. "The all-new Elantra delivers a level of ride and handling refinement that's both agile and comfortable," said John KrafcikÖ, Hyundai Motor America's vice president for product development. "Add in great standard safety features like six air bags, antilock brakes and active front head restraints, and our...
...If rear-seat passengers don't mind the relatively flat, hard seat, there's ample legroom. Up front, twin bucket seats are very comfortable. Seat quality is something Hyundai has long needed to address -- and has. The 2007 Elantra comes in three models: The base GLS, which starts at $13,395 -- it's pretty bare-bones, as that doesn't include air conditioning. At the other end is the relatively deluxe Limited, starting at $16,895. In the middle is the SE, which is tested here. It starts at $15,695, and at that price has most everything I want: The only option was a set of $85 floor mats, and...
