2013 Hyundai Elantra GT Hatchback 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 6A)


Review

I bought my '13 GT just over 15 months ago.
It now has 36,000 miles and no issues whatsoever.
I average 36mpg driving 80% highway... not bad at all.
I highly recommend a test drive if you're shopping for a reliable, stylish hatchback.


Best Features

Great looks, good economy, funt to drive, reliable. Comes standard with features that were only on luxury cars 20 years ago. Outside temp sensor. Compass built into the mirror. Homelink with garage door openers (3) Hyundai BlueLink USB ports for music Locking Gas cover Controls are easy to use and reach. Comfortable ride yet handles very good.


Worst Features

Back-up camera should be standard as the view out the back is not good. Kinda scary backing up. Can't think of anything else.

2013 Hyundai Elantra GT Hatchback 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 6A)


Review

I got the touch and go package I really liked the Wheels and really wanted the proximity key.
The Voice commands are the best of any that I have used and really like it and use it.
The performance is acceptable and can get out of its own way.
I went in to the dealership to look at the velositer and was very disappointed by the performance.
The sales lady showed me the Elantra GT and it was much snappier and better.
The fuel economy I get isn't as bad as others I have owned it for 9 months and 20000 miles I have seen in 45MPG in summer using summer gas and going down hill most of the way.
most of the time combined would be 32-33MPG on summer gas on winter gas 27-31.


Best Features

Proximity key, Voice Commands


Worst Features

better fuel economy most drivers feel cheated by the fuel economy

2013 Hyundai Elantra GT Hatchback PZEV 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 6A)


Review

I recently purchased the Hyundai Elantra GT...and I love it. I was driving a
Lexus RX 350 which had been a wonderful car. But it was 8 years old and time for a replacement. I'm a single mom and a teacher so another Lexus was not in my price range. I researched tons of vehicles trying to find the most for my money and hoping I wouldn't be missing the Lexus. The Elantra was it!
The ride, the comfort, the bells and whistles...all of it. I don't miss my Lexus at all. I got it fully loaded and it was totally in my price range. In fact, dare I say it's more fun to drive. A little smaller and zippier around the neighborhood. My 10 and 13 year old boys even like my new car better.
:)


Best Features

The interior looks like a luxury vehicle. I drove other cars in the same cats gory and was not nearly as impressed. The ride is very smooth. It handles bumps and road issues very well.


Worst Features

I would love for all the windows to be auto up. Also would like to see curb sensors. But those are minor details that I can live without.

Review

I've been driving my GT for about 5 months now and have just under 3000mi on it. There have been zero mecanical issues as expected for such a new car. My wife was very suprised by me getting this car because I've been into either sprots cars, or SUV's for a while. I eneded up test driving the GT just to pass some time while my wife's car was in for service. Thats all it took for me was one test drive. I came back later that day to trade in my Jeep. I opted for a 6spd manual with the touch and go package which added 17" wheel, keyless entry, push button start, and sport pedals. It also had the homelink mirror which has a nice auto dim feature.


Best Features

Interior, Sound system even on the base model is great! The looks are more reflective of a high dollar car. MPG's are great I'm getting an average of 29mpg with mostly city driving in congested South FL.


Worst Features

Not everything gets high praises with this car. There are a few places Hyundai fell a little short. First off the factory tires are garbage. This is the first time in my life I will be happy when the tires get low so I have an excuse to change them. Hyudai should have gone with a better brand for thier cars. The rear suspension can be a little sketchy when going over bumps while turning. I, for the most part, fixed this problem with changing the rear shocks to KYB's. It was only $150 for the parts and they made a world of difference. 1st and 6th gear are mostly useless on the manual trans. The gearing should be changed a little. Finally the Engine should have about 30 or so more HP.
