10) Hyundai Elantra Sport
Korean car maker Hyundai gave the Elantra a more powerful turbocharged engine for the 2017 model year. They also added a sport tuned multilink rear suspension and a drive mode selector with ‘normal’ and ‘sport’ options. The car’s flat bottom steering wheel is also sport tuned.
The new Elantra has a 1.6 litre turbo GDI four cylinder engine with twin exhausts. Power transfers to the wheels via a 6 speed manual transmission. A 7 speed dual clutch automatic transmission is available as optional.
Stopping power is provided by 4 wheel disc brakes which have been enlarged for the front wheels. Other features include HID headlights, LED taillights and a power sunroof. On the inside the car has been equipped with an 8 inch touchscreen navigation panel, heated front sport seats and illuminated vanity mirrors. For a car which starts at US $20,000 the Elantra is a more than decent package.
