My friends at DriveShop & Hyundai gave me a 2017 Hyundai Elantra to test drive for a week. Of course, all opinions shared about the vehicle are my own.

My first car was black. My current car is black. I vowed that I would never buy a black car again. But when the 2017 Hyundai Elantra showed up in my driveway, I remembered how sleek and sexy black cars look when you first get them. Yea, I decided that this new black car was worth my time.

Now that we’ve established how sexy the car is, let’s get down to the details! If you have ever read any of my other car reviews, you know that I have to let my kids chime in first. I can always count on them to give me the real deal about everything.

The kids were immediately impressed with the interior. They said it was really nice and the seats were “super comfortable.” I have to agree with them. When I opened the door to enter the 2017 Elantra, I was so impressed to see that they did a lot to make the sleek interior match the sleek exterior.

As you can see below, they had a blast pretending to drive the car in our driveway. They crack me up!

As as a mother of two (soon to be a mother of three), this isn’t the ideal vehicle for my family. We need some more space. But I must  say that for a new family with one or two kids, this is a excellent vehicle at a great price (starting at $17,150). We comfortably went for a nice fall drive with both of the kids and came home with a trunk filled with groceries and two lamps we purchased for our bedroom (we are redecorating!).

Of course, I had to ask my husband for his opinion because he literally can’t lie when it comes to how he feels about a car. He said, “it’s a great car and a really smooth drive for the price point.” And one of his favorite features? The LED lights. I usually don’t notice features like this right away, but those LED lights were pretty awesome at night.

Sot we’ve covered the kids and hubby, It’s now time to share what I love about the 2017 Hyundai Elantra (aside from the obvious sexiness).

The technology in this vehicle is awesome. From the rearview camera with dynamic guidelines to the Bluetooth hands-free phone system, I found myself in technology heaven.  My favorite feature is the Apple CarPlay Support. If I can’t enjoy my music, it’s a major problem. This car made me one happy lady when I had to leave the house early one morning to go teach my blogging class. I had my heated front seat (it was cold that morning), my Apple CarPlay, and enough features to keep me feeling safe and comfortable.

With advanced safety features, a sleek design, a great price point, more standard horsepower than its competitors, and enough bells and whistles to keep you happy and satisfied, this compact vehicle is worth taking for a test drive. And did I menton that it’s fuel effecient? I dont think any of us take that for granted these days.

If you are looking for a  car that offers a great driving experience at a very reasonable price, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra may be the right car for you.
