Vehicle Review: 2018 Hyundai Elantra Limited - Rain, Disneyland, Dole Whip Flights and Pi(e) Day

Time for another vehicle review and this time it is the 2018 Hyundai Elantra Limited! This was one of my favorite vehicles to review last year and the 2018 version is nearly identical to the 2017 version.

It was a rare rainy day here in Southern California and the 2018 Hyundai Elantra Limited handled masterfully in the wet conditions. The vehicle I reviewed had the Ultimate Package added to it and gave a wide variety of safety features to the Limited including tire pressure monitoring, vehicle stability management, electronic stability control, traction control, anti-lock braking, brake assist, blind-spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert, a rearview camera, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian crossing, smart cruise control, lane keep assist, automatic high beam assist and HID headlights with dynamic bending light.

And what better place to drive in the rain than to Hula Girl Shave Ice in Huntington Beach to try this beauty, the dole whip flight! They currently only offer it on the weekends and you have to ask for it since it is not on the menu! The dole whip flavors shown here are not always going to be on the menu so you never know what you are going to get. But as seen here, going from left to right you have strawberry and dole whip, strawberry dole whip, pineapple dole whip, orange dole whip and citrus swirl which is orange dole whip and vanilla soft serve! You get all of this for only $10! Such a deal and totally delicious! Oh, bring a friend because this is way too much for one person to finish!

The next day it was time to hop back into the driver's seat and head to Disneyland! You can take a 360 degree look around in the vehicle interior and see just how roomy it is! The Ultimate Package on the 2018 Hyundai Elantra Limited gives you a navigation system with an 8-inch touchscreen, Infinity Premium Audio with eight speakers and a subwoofer, power sunroof, leather seats with heated front and rear seats, driver's seat memory and Blue Link.

Another early morning when you are the first one in the Disneyland parking lot! Love coming early to get a great parking and to get into the park at rope drop!

One of the first things I do at Disneyland is head to the coffee cart to the left of Sleeping Beauty Castle to get a donut. They typically carry three different donuts each morning and you never know which three they will have. This morning they had one of my favorites, the maple bacon bar!

After a full day at Disneyland, I like taking my time to head out of the park to get cool shots like this one! By far one of my favorite photos ever!

The next day was Pi(e) Day! So, it meant taking friends to one of my favorite places for pie! Plenty of leg room in the back for my friends that are of average height.

The Pie Hole is one of the very best places for pie if you are in Southern California! They carry sweet and savory pie so you can easily get a great lunch or dinner here!

I got a slice of cereal killer pie topped with frosted flakes! Such a perfect pie to have on Pi(e) Day!

A lot of trunk space to put in all of our pie we purchased to take home. Who am I kidding, we ate all the pie! But there is still so much trunk space for traveling, grocery or Holiday shopping!

The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine makes 147 horsepower. The Limited gets 32 MPG combines with 28 in the city and 37 on the highway.The drive is smooth and solid even in the rain. 

The Elantra Limited starts off at $22,100 but the Limited Edition with the Ultimate Package brings the total to $27,460 as reviewed. You also get the best warranty with a five-year, 60,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty and a 10-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty. There is also five years of complimentary roadside assistance.

A stylish looking compact sedan combined with the Ultimate Package maxes out this vehicle's luxury potential and transforms it into a premium sedan. The 2018 Elantra Limited with the Ultimate Package gives you the fullest available comfort, safety, and entertainment options. This is a sedan that should not be overlooked.
