Awards and Accolades

Author Jack Gillis and the Center for Auto Safety named the Elantra a "Best Bet" in The Car Book 2007, which selects vehicles based on how well they respond to the safety and performance needs of today's consumers.

The Yahoo! Autos Green Center ranked the 2007 Elantra as one of the top 20 "Green" cars for 2007.

2007 Elantra is named one of the "Best Cars of 2007" by Auto A Fondo Magazine, the only Spanish language car enthusiasts' magazine written by highly recognized Hispanic journalists and mechanics in Los Angeles.

More highway and city MPG than a Chevrolet Cobalt. Less money -- 2007 Elantra
- 36 MPG Hwy/28 MPG City


The 2007 Elantra was awarded a 5-Star rating for frontal crash by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA's) New Car Assessment Program.

The American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE)
recognized the 2007 Hyundai Elantra as one of the top 12 "Greenest Vehicles of 2007". The 2007 Hyundai Elantra placed 11th and received a “superior” green score of 45 out of 100. The Elantra is certified as a Partial Zero Emission Vehicle (PZEV) and is as clean as many hybrid electric vehicles. Elantra achieves this certification, with its advanced 2.0-liter in-line four-cylinder engine that features DOHC and CVVT, to ensure improved fuel economy.
