2021 Hyundai Elantra First Impressions; Why a Fender Bender Can Be So Expensive | Talking Cars #291

We recently purchased a new 2021 Hyundai Elantra for the Consumer Reports auto testing program, and we share our first impressions on the performance, infotainment, and styling of this small sedan. We also discuss why many modern cars seem to lack a traditional bumper, and why the cost of minor dings and fender benders can be surprisingly expensive. We also discuss the role a tire’s sidewall can play in ride comfort, recent government reports regarding booster seat weight limits and how they impact CR’s testing, and if a car from Alaska could have any issues at its new home in Florida.
