    Saw a new Elantra GT Hatchback today, that my dads friend bought. Black, and gotta say the paint job looked better than my black Civic. Seemed like a deeper high quality paint. HP is 173, nearly identical to my 17' Civic EX-T. Anyone test drive one to compare, and what were your thoughts? Price is under 20k.

    A buddy of mine at work just picked up the GT Sport hatch (which is comparable power-wise to my Si). We haven't had a chance to go compare them in Mexico yet, but I'll report back once we do. :)

    The Si smokes the GT lol. In the end it's a Hyundai. And it looks boring as well. The Civic is not a masterpiece but it certainly looks less generic than the Elantra. Si any day over the Elantra, please.

    I seriously considered a GT sport. That pano-roof is one of a kind in this class of cars. The reason I didn't pick it was because of lower gas mileage/highway range, didn't like the DCT transmission that Hyundai offers, handling felt worse than a civic, the tacked on tablet infotainment was ugly, and a few other minor issues.
