You guys know that I practically live in my car, not only do I commute to work from Middletown, Delaware to Wayne, Pennsylvania, which is a 114 miles round trip, I also teach Building Your Own Blog Workshops at DelTech Community College in Stanton, DE so I definitely need an economical and efficient vehicle to get around.
Whether I am stopping in for coffee at Wawa or picking up a gallon of milk and a few candy bars from Walgreens, I am always zipping around town.
Driving up and down the highways between two states on a daily basis means that I need an economical and efficient vehicle and this 2018 Hyundai Elantra Eco definitely fit the bill.
I loved jumping into this vehicle early one morning and having it warm up quickly in the frigid temps and having the heated front seats keep my tush toasty on an early morning drive to the Riverfront for our bi-weekly Chamber of Commerce meeting.
I drove all over town between Delaware and Pennsylvania for an entire work week without having to stop for gas once so at 35 MPG it definitely saved me a few bucks.
I also loved how it hugged the curves as I drove through the “cattle shoots” on Route 202. The 7″ display and audio system was great, whether I was listening to Watercolors on SiriusXM Radio or to Les Brown’s motivational moments from my YouTube Channel via the AUX Bluetooth connection.
Another safety feature that I found to be unique yet very convenient was the volume of the radio, it would automatically lower when the vehicle was put into reverse. So even with the Rearview Backup Camera, it was another safety feature that helps you concentrate when backing out of the driveway or parking lot.
In addition to the comfortable front seats, there was plenty of trunk space so my bags and camera equipment fit well. However, the back seating is tight for an adult but since my sons and hubby have their own vehicles, it was perfect for me. The back seats have a 60/40 split fold so if I ever needed more trunk room, this would be a good option to have.
This particular model of the 2018 Hyundai Elantra Eco had many standard features which you can click the link to read more, but with an MRSP of $21,560.00, I think it’s a perfect vehicle for anyone who drives a lot and needs an economical and efficient vehicle with a 5-Star Safety Rating.
Two of my favorite features were the push button start, and there is a key within the fob in case the battery dies and the light on the door handle illuminates at night. Check out the video below to see more and make sure to leave me a comment as to which feature you liked best.
Thank you Drive Shop for giving me an opportunity to review this 2018 Hyundai Elantra Eco, it was definitely a great vehicle and met my needs perfectly.

We have a 2009 Elantra which we love-so well designed- lots of little touches. Happy to hear Hyundai is still doing that.
I know what you mean, I loved my 2005 Hyundai Sonata, it gave me over 180K miles before any major problems occurred.
Looks like this is a great option for someone who spends a lot of time in their car like you do. It sure is pretty, too.
Yes, I smiled and waved every time I passed my gas station!
Hyundai has really stepped up it game and is giving other cars a run for their money! Stylish and economical? I had no idea that they were so good gas wise, plus for the price!
Now that’s a zippy little car there! I’ve never thought about a Hyundai but this one is nice.
Hyundai sure has come a long way since back when they came on the scene. This car is cute and economical! I wouldn’t mind zipping around town in it.
Next time, you get the Hyundai and I’ll take the Lexus!!!
