2002 Hyundai Elantra GSi 1.6 from UK and Ireland
Cheap luxury car
Well equipped reliable car.
Quiet and smooth running.
Stiff suspension though, and the handling is not as good as euro cars.
With its handling, I forgive it because it feels like I am driving a bigger car than it is, and also with its luxury spec, I feel like I am driving a big old Jag.
Its Mpg on the auto is not very good; about 25-30 mpg around town, and it's dear to tax in the UK at £215 for a 1.6. Thanks Mr Gordon Brown, you robber.
I like the car though, because it's different to everyone else. It looks fantastic from the back and sides, although the gaping grille at the front is not to everyone's taste.
Overall, not bad, and if you buy one, get a low mileage full history one like I did, and I paid very little for it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
