Very comfy, good styling, easy to drive and reliable
Outside temperature gauge.
Well, I was about to buy a brand new Kia Forte for RM 85,000 (approx.), but then I happened to test drive a 2008 Hyundai Elantra X20, and I changed my mind.
The X20 runs like a continental/heavy car as compared to the Forte, and it has a much smoother drive due to its 2.0 engine.
Nice interior, and a decent yet trendy exterior.
Don't get me wrong, the Forte is a very good car, but the drive and bells and whistles are targeted more towards the younger crowd. I'm in my mid 30s, and preferred Hyundai's styling and drive, plus I got to save almost RM 30,000 :)
Yup, I paid RM 56,000 for my beautiful Elantra, and have been driving it very happily for past few months, with an average fuel consumption of 9-10km/litre in the city.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
