Driver’s Seat: It’s a not-so-cheap version
of a cheap car, so I wasn’t preparing
myself for the coddliness of a Lexus. But
the GT’s seats did OK, though; my wife
didn’t complain until I asked what she
thought, so that means not so terrible.
Friends and stuff: The rear seat is not too
awful. It’s roomy in the feet and legs, a
little less so in the head, but not as bad
as I expected. The seat itself is low of
comfort, and reclines a bit too much.
Thanks to the GT hatchback, cargo space
is 24.9 cubic feet with the rear seat up
and 55.1 with the seat folded. Pretty
generous, for its size.
Play some tunes: The Elantra receives
the standard Hyundai stereo, with 8-inch
display and six speakers. Sound is really
good for a basic Hyundai model, at least
a B+. (Definitely plays rings around the
basic Toyota version.)

less-expensive ride.
Keeping warm and cool: Giant dials
control the temperature, and buttons
control the fan speed and location. Seat
heaters were also included with this car,
which is a nice touch for the price range.
