The Elantra GT is the Korean equivelant
of the first Volkswagen GTI. Put a
strong motor in a small car with a good
suspension a decent 5 speed
transmission, add a nice interior a
good stereo and an attractive price and
it will sell. I have seen as many new
GT's as I did when I had purchased my
GTI 20 years ago cruising down the road
and passing me with a wave or knowing
smile. This is a well thought out and
quality built car that is fun to drive
and turn's heads. I have had people ask
numerous times if it's the new saab?
I love the leather interior and the mp3
capable kenwood stereo that is as nice
as an aftermarket system. the moonroof
is nice as well as the folding rear
seats that allow my 2 large dogs to
cruise in style without damaging the
leather. the interior is cavernous for
a car of this size.
I would love to see it with a V-6
option or a turbo. Also the GT should
have a larger tire and wheel option.
The 6 speed transmission from the
Tiburon would be nice too. Hyundai has
many loyal enthusiast the should have a
performance shop like SVO, TRD or SRT
like other manufacturer's
