Elantra 2The Hyundai Elantra is a compact car sold by Hyundai Motors worldwide. First introduced in 1990 as a 1991 model, the Elantra has sold millions of cars worldwide and is one of Hyundai’s bestselling vehicles over the past twenty five years. It is currently in its fifth generation, which was introduced in 2011. A facelift of all the trim models was done for the 2014 model year, and a new trim line was added at the same time. With great gas mileage and a focus on affordability and reliability, it is not surprising that the Elantra is one of the bestselling Hyundai vehicles on the market, and you can learn more about it here.

The Elantra currently comes in three different trim levels, the SE, Sport and Limited. The SE is the base-level Elantra and is priced at $17,200 MSRP. It features a 145-hp DOHC 1.8L 4-cylinder engine that gets 38 MPG combined city/highway, a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission, cruise control, 15″ alloy wheels, power windows and locks and an AM/FM/CD/Sirius XM/MP3 audio system with six speakers. Next up is the Limited, which comes in at $21,650 MSRP and features the same engine as the SE, 17-inch alloy wheels, a Blue Link Telematics system, power driver seat with lumbar support and a one-touch-up driver’s window (pretty neat, considering most just go one-touch down). The highest level is the Sport, which features a more powerful 173-hp 2.0L GDI 16-valve 4-cylinder engine that gets 35 combined MPG, sport tuned steering and suspension, a 4.3-inch touchscreen display, 17-inch sport alloy wheels, a rear lip spoiler and more. It starts at $21,700 MSRP.

Like most compact cars, the Elantra is easy to ship due to its small size and light weight (when compared to larger vehicles). The most expensive part about shipping an Elantra is where you’re going to be shipping it from and to – without the size or bulk of a sport utility vehicle, an auto transporter doesn’t have to worry about upping the price because of additional fuel consumption, so that really helps keep your shipping price down on your Elantra. Make sure to note that longer routes will cost more, though that’s pretty standard and there’s no getting around it. There’s no need for enclosed shipping, even on a brand-new Elantra – its value will drop by at least a couple thousand the moment you drive it off the lot, and even if you keep it in top shape it’s not going to eclipse the threshold for recommended enclosed shipping. Open shipping is cheaper, faster, more economical and easier for you if you’re shipping a car like the Elantra.
