Which you should buy, 2014 or 2015? 2015
The compact Elantra is Hyundai's best-selling model but was last redesigned for 2011, so its sales are falling at the same time that the midsize Sonata (redesigned for 2015) is on the upswing. That and the competitive nature of the compact car market mean that suggested retail prices on 2015 models are about the same as comparable 2014s.
Starting prices are $17,250 for the SE, $21,600 for the Sport and $21,700 for the Limited, not including the $810 destination charge (unchanged from 2014).
