The Hyundai Elantra is manufactured by the South Korean-based Hyundai. The Hyundai Elantra was introduced in 1990 as advertised a compact car, although has been classified as a mid-size vehicle and is currently a strong contender as a niche in the market.

The Hyundai Elantra is also known as the Hyundai Lantra in Australia and various European markets.
Over the past 21 years that Hyundai has produced the Elantra it has debuted five different generations of the Hyundai Elantra.

The Hyundai Elantra wagon design was available until 2001, when the third generation was introduced. The third generation of the Hyundai Elantra brought with it a resigned exterior and dashboard.
