Purchased As New
I test drove the following hatchbacks: Mazda 3, Subaru Impreza, Ford Focus, and Toyota Matrix. The Mazda has a great engine/performance quotient, but the interior is extremely bland with a sparse standard feature set. The Subaru is very handsome but the interior is very bland. The Focus was the peppiest, but the features I wanted were not standard and cost $$$$. The Toyota has a great shape but, the interior is SO UGLY. Feeling a bit disheartened, a friend told me to check out the Elantra GT.
WOW! First off I love the styling. Very fluid and dynamic, it keeps your eyes busy. I love the crease down the length of the car, and the tail lights are very unique. This is definitely not the sedan. And then I looked inside. Wonderful interior layout. It just oozes quality and premium touches. I love the dash layout the best, especially the way the air vents frame the AC and radio controls with silver accenting. Nice! All the controls are logically laid out with no need to look twice.
The standard features are phenomenal. Heated cloth seats, fog lights, bluetooth connectivity, steering wheel mounted controls, etc. More than enough to entertain and keep you happy.
So the engine needs a skosh more horsepower, mostly for those freeway passing/entering maneuvers. But it rides really nice and handles like a dream. Excellent gas mileage is the icing on the cake. Lastly, I noticed this is a Very quiet riding car too.
So I drove it home that day. Funny thing was, I kept going in the garage to just stare at it, the shape and lines are very pleasing.
Thank you Hyundai, I was beginning to think I was going to have to settle for something that didn't make me truly happy, and this car does!
