Just as good as a Mazda3

Edmunds.com logo Edmunds.com 7/9/2015 Joel Leininger

I'm really a Mazda guy, but decided to get this Hyundai because it seemed to have everything the Mazda 3 has, and was less expensive...and.....I know it's probably a silly reason not to get your favorite car brand...the Hyundai still has big bins in every door for storing all your stuff (Mazda has done away with the door bins--just a bottle holder now). I've had my 2014 Elantra GT, manual transmission, for just a couple of months; it's a fully loaded 2014 which I bought new (4 miles on odometer) in May 2015. I don't fully understand why it doesn't sell better, but maybe traditional Hyundai buyers don't like manual transmissions unlike Mazda buyers, which seem to like manuals in larger numbers. I did have to adjust to a different throttle response in the Hyundai; starting from a dead stop and also accelerating while moving, there seems to be a slight delay in the throttle response, compared to my former Mazdas, but I'm used to it now. If you like the driving dynamics of Mazdas, I don't think you'll be disappointed in the Elantra GT..Go for it!
