Elantra GT Sport vs. The Others
Well, From Hyundai, they've tested this Elantra GT Sport on the Ring' and have been getting it to that hot hatch level. But it still does look like it falls short.
With it producing 201hp from it's 1.6L I4 engine, looking at the 220hp Golf GTI and the 252hp Focus ST, you may start to lose a little hope in that area.
BUT it still can compete a bit closer with the Honda Civic Sport that produces 180hp and the Mazda 3 Sport GT that produces 184hp
That being said, HP on it's own shouldn't be the only deciding factor and it obviously isn't. We'll really have to wait and see how weight, torque, power delivery and what not tie in and if they create a beautiful harmony of great performance.
