Pros : Looks; Comfort; Features

Cons : lack of upholstry colur choice

Look and Style: Great trendy looks. Does not give that exuctive class looks but more sporty and young so may not appeal to people who want to project a serious image, But definately for the ones on the go. Comfort : Very spacious, both for the front and back seats. Leather seat quality is good, specially the ventellated  one with 10 way electronic adjustment for the driver. Has the right space and pockets for keeping those keys, mobile and various nick nacks. The boot is so large that it may not be used to the full capacity normally. The ride is smooth on an average road. Pickup : Nice smooth  and fast pickup. Althoough missed that kick which the earlier Accent used to deliver.  Mileage : Yet to checkout, but the claim as made by the company for 22.5 Km/L, if true, is excellent. Best Features : At the given price the package of features is a steal, specially the 6 airbags , the parking sensors, rear AC vents, rear music console,  16 alloy wheels,... and the list goes on.  However wondering why they have missed out on something basic like the rain sensors, although it is availaibe in i20 . Needs to improve : With so much luxury thrown in, I think the customer needs to have a choice of upholstery colours. The beige interiors though international in character, are somehow a shade too dark according to my choice. The colour combination used in VW-Jetta is far better. The fnishing of the interiors though good, could still have been about 10% better. Overall Experience : Very Good family car in the segment and the best  value for money. Still not dared to check out the effective ground clearence on a bumpy road.

    Hyundai like all other car manufacturers r fooling Indians, why not, after all most never know the difference in important featured between an Indian and an Ametican spec eventhough Indian spec costs 3.5 Laks more than the Elentra 2017 top spec Amercan model. In US host of additional safety features exists over its Indian counterpart. Go to You tube and review the same. Unfortunately car reviews undertaken by Indians in India for Indians r well aware yet dont comment. Sad, but thats the truth. After all these guys r well paid for jobs to promote without making a real comparison between Indian spec that costs far higher then its US or European spec that costs cheaper. Even though i know taxes in India really sucks.
