While there's too much chrome and bling on the outside, which may not be to everyone's liking, the Elantra clearly stands out from the crowd in terms of design and styling. It is, however, in no way understated as some of the European cars. It's an aggressive and very bold design!

While the petrol motor is sprightly in the Elantra, it's the diesel which is more fun to drive with oodles of torque on offer. It does have a fair bit of turbo-lag, but once you are on the move, the performance from the engine is simply excellent. The powerband is wide, and it does not force you into downshifting even while the speed drops significantly. The driveability of the engine is superb!
Although smooth most of the times, the automatic transmission on both petrol and diesel variants feels a little bit sluggish when you thrash it. The manual on the other hand is slick and precise with short and accurate throws.

First things first. Handling is not Elantra's forte. It's suspension is on the softer side, meaning it istuned for a comfortable ride over enthusisatic cornering antics. It tends to wallow on speeds over 130km/h, but that said, it is not feel completely disconnected. The steering, although it lacks feel, is direct. The handling is also predictable. Disc brakes on all four wheel means it's braking is excellent.
