A Korean GTI
By flgtman on
Vehicle2005 Hyundai Elantra GT 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewThe 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?
Best FeaturesI 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.
Worst FeaturesI 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
