      yeah, this car is hands down a VERY cool little offering. I'm in the market for a new car and have been researching for a year. I've looked at and test drove all the usuals, VW GTI/R, New Civic sedan and Hatch, Focus ST..... all nice cars with their pluses and m inuses but when taking EVERYTHING into account ie, warranty, reliability, price, performance etc. This one wins. I even went to see its new brother the GT sport and I still come back to this one because of the interior and the exterior styling. I havn't pulled the trigger yet but very close, pretty sure I'm going to go with this vehicle, just checks so many boxes. I'm just trying to figure out if I could fit my mountain bike in the trunk...??

      It's definitely a nice car and possibly my next car in the next couple of years. The only problem is that I wish it was like 250 hp instead of just 201. 201 hp whilst good enough for most daily things just is barely cutting it to be considered sporty by todays standards where many cars are over 300hp.

      LaMont J. In reply to Monsieur Africain

      You should also consider the weight of this type of car. Just being around 3000lbs & 200hp is actually pretty good. I'm sure at some point there'll be a tune 4 it. If it's not already out there.

      Monsieur Africain I saw one at my local dealer that was tuned by Blood Type Racing here in Chicagoland. It had a bunch of mods. Sounded great, lots of pops and gurgles from the exhaust. It was raining the day I saw it and it was during rush hour so I didn’t test drive it. I just started it up. Went back a couple days later and it was sold!!! I’m kind of waiting for the new Veloster N version to come out later this year. We currently have a 2015 Elantra Limited that’s my wife’s Dailey driver. I have a company car with a gas card so when I get something, it will sit most of the time except when the weekend comes around.

      At night the gauges look really similar to that of the Mercedes CLA. A really nice inexpensive fun car it seems.

      Francis Fung cool I myself have a civic touring and wanted to see how they compare with each other, but you get a lot of value and technology with both cars I believe

      Kenan Feng In reply to oscar mora

      oscar mora Two different orientations to be honest. This is a lot sportier than the Civic, whereas the civic has a more refined ride and interior. You could say the civic is a better daily driver especially in Touring model with the drivers assistance features but this car is a bit more fun.

      I would only buy a DCT if it had true rev matching/blipping during down shifting. I'm buying the 18 premium with a MT soon!

      Matthew Hutzell In reply to M83 Collective

      For all intents and purposes, if you put it in drive and go and there's no clutch pedal, it's an automatic. Yes, DCTs are their own animal, but you can still put it in drive and let it automatically switch gears.

      Huh? This is technically not an automatic its a dual clutch, if you really think “theres no difference” between both transmissions, then you’re seriously a moron.

      Some people offered to work hard but spend smarter. I rather invest in multiple properties and by a sab par car. Cars always depreciate in value, best to only invest your assets in something that increases value. For me, a car like this is more the enough.
