Meanwhile, excellent crash-test scores allow families to travel with an extra peace of mind. Hyundai’s class-leading, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty gives you yet another reason to choose the new Elantra. Let’s see how the base Elantra SE compares to the Elantra Limited.


Both the 2018 Hyundai Elantra SE and Limited come standard with an economical 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine. Multi-point fuel injection helps it to develop a satisfying 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque.
