FULL Review: Elantra AD 2.0 and 1.6 Turbo T-GDI

You are looking at Newly Launched 2017 Hyundai Elantra AD.  It comes in 2 Variant.  The Elantra Nu 2.0 MPI Sedan and Elantra Sport 1.6 T-GDI DCT.

It's priced from RM115,658 OTR to RM119,858 for 2.0 MPI.  While the 1.6 Turbo T-GDI's priced RM131,048.  All price OTR including GST but Without Roadtax, Registration fee and Insurance.

Firstly, the Elantra 2.0 MPI.  this is a Familiar Nu 2.0 MPI engine as seen in Sonata LF and Tucson TL and Kia Cerato 2.0.  It produces 152ps@6200rpm and 192Nm at 4000rpm mated with Familiar 6 speed Automatic transmission.  It goes from 0-100km/h in 9.7 seconds.

The Elantra Sport is powered by the Gamma 1.6 Turbo GDI (T-GDI) 4-cylinder engine that generates 204 PS and 265Nm of torque, mated with an Ecoshift 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.

This is a C-segment GERMAN Sports Sedan with a Korean Badge". It comes with 3 years OR 50,000km OR 6 times free Service.

Why above statement?

Because it's Designed by Peter Shreyer. He was Audi TT Designer. It's the 1st Hyundai C-segment sedan carrying the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0. It's both Engineered and tested in Alabama, USA and Russelsheim Germany. It's also fine-tuned in Nurburgring, Germany hence class leading Ride and Handling with European car refinement. Please test drive to agree with me.

The Elantra Sport 1.6 Turbo handles differently compared to Elantra 2.0 Due to Retuned Rear Multi-link suspension instead of Torsion-Beam and 7 speed Dual Clutch gearbox over 6 speed Auto. That explained why Hyundai Sime Darby took the trouble to produce 2 Different Brochures.
