    Solid meh. It's decently sporty and quite a step up from any Elantra ten years ago, but quite forgettable. I'd much rather have an Elantra GT instead, or of course my own car, a Veloster.

    I kinda like it but I don't feel like I should vote higher than meh. Also I can't decide whether I prefer the pre or post-facelift versions. The pre-facelift one is probably more traditionally nice, but I kinda like how the facelifted front end is more experimental.

    Very meh, because Compact cars weigh that much more 200hp isn't much these days and this is probably the worst car with this engine as I would much rather the I30/Cerato/Forte/Veloster/Pro Ceed.

    Uncool. It's a wrong wheel drive econobox that really doesnt exhibit anything "sport" worthy outside of the badge.

    It's no Veloster, but this thing doesn't look half bad. Low cool from me.

    Seriously uncool. It might be a sport but I still only see them filled with elderly wobbly-heads trundling up the coast road.

    EDIT: I tell a lie, must be another Hyundai Sport that some local salesman's pushing to the oldies... what's the UK equivalent?

    Closest I can think of is the i30 Fastback N-Line, but the most powerful variant has a 60hp deficit compared to the Elantra.

    Honestly, around me, for the price of that new, I could have a really good used Audi with around 20k miles. I'd take a used Audi over a new Hyundai (excluding the Genesis line up).
