    If that fails , call the regional office of Hyundai where you live and it will be corrected. The car has a sporty feel. I recommend this car to anyone. Our Sonata Hybrid out performs it in acceleration. Hatchbacks almost always look great.

    A good thing keeps getting better: The Koreans continue to improve on their value equation, offering better product for less money while continuing to provide an industry-best warranty to sweeten the deal. Or, at least, should be. Considering that, this car is pretty good deal. Right off the bat, I noticed it was quick off the line.

    The brakes did a good job of bringing this lightweight to a halt. The styling and shape are great, but the front end looks a little busy to me. The rear is very cool, though. Hatchbacks almost always look great. And I love the giant sunroof, which makes the Elantra GT feel like a convertible. However, it is a little buzzy through the firewall. Steering was adequate for a car in this class. Hyundai performed some enticing updates to this Elantra GT for the model year.

    It starts with the bump in power under the hood with the 2. Torque also climbed by 23 lb-ft to over the previous car. But the new sport-tuned suspension is what got most of my attention during my quick overnight with the Elantra GT. Unlike previous Hyundai vehicles, the chassis feels much more buttoned up. Steering response is also better when you select the sport setting, which helps raise the fun factor a little.

    So I have to give high marks to Hyundai for the chassis upgrades. The added muscle under the hood was noticed and appreciated when merging onto the expressway, but there is still a fair amount of engine noise that makes its way into the cabin. The six-speed automatic shifts are quick and slick enough, and the brakes are stout with firm pedal feedback.

    Topping the improved driving dynamics are all the features that Hyundai packs into this package. Then on the outside, you have sheetmetal that looks rather sleek. For non-enthusiasts, I agree with Natalie that the Elantra GT is an appealing package, considering all the features you get in it along with that year warranty. The Hyundai Elantra GT handles itself much better after it's model year updates.

    Hatchbacks are practical, inexpensive and now, finally, stylish. However, that stylishness, particularly at the rear end, limits the practicality as the back end leans forward and cuts off some storage room in the luggage compartment. It has a little more headroom, a little less legroom and more interior volume than others in its class. This year, the Elantra GT hatchback also gets 25 more horsepower than it had last year. But for fun-to-driveness, I might not. I drove it over miles in the week-plus that I had it, part of that time with four people and a dog in it.

    The Elantra GT was kind of loud, for instance, and the steering felt weird. Hyundai, perhaps sick and tired of car writers whining about steering, allows you to select three modes: They all felt heavy and wooden, particularly at low speeds. Response through that steering was more muted than the Ford, Mazda and VW competitors. Body roll, which was controlled by MacPherson struts up front and a torsion beam rear, was less than the VW but not as well-controlled as the Focus and Mazda 3.

    In a straight line, I managed an 8. There was even a little tire chirp at launch. My car had the six-speed automatic. The six-speed manual would have knocked a second off that time, which puts it in respectable territory. The engine, like much of the Hyundai line, is fairly sophisticated, with gasoline direct-injection and continuously variable valve timing on both camshafts.

    I like that Hyundai is going high tech in its powerplants. Even the Accent has GDI. Now go forth and choose. The Hyundai Elantra GT is equipped with a 2. I kept on gazing around the dashboard and at the center console, looking for a sport button to press, or if the Active Eco button had been turned on -- nope, this was how it was. I was doomed to my fate of a time in 8 or so seconds. Maybe it was the six-speed automatic that bogged the frumpy little Elantra down.
