The 2015 Hyundai Elantra splits the difference between the sporty-driving Mazda3 and Ford Focus, and the more mainstream and comfortable
Chevrolet Cruze and Nissan Sentra. A 6-speed...
... manual transmission comes standard, or you can opt for a 6-speed automatic. The transmissions do their best to make the most of the 1.8-liter 4-cylinder's 145 horsepower, but if that's not enough, the Elantra Sport sedan, the Elantra Coupe and the Elantra GT hatchback are all available with the 173-horsepower 2.0-liter engine. Elantra GT, SE and Limited models come with 3-mode, driver-selectable steering, designed to improve feedback in sporty driving. The GT and Elantra Coupe also get stiffer suspensions for more aggressive driving. Yet even in everyday traffic, all Elantras are comfortable and well insulated from road and wind noise, especially for a compact car.
