Tested: Hyundai Elantra Sport

The extinct attributes

Not too long ago, things looked rather different on our roads. Only farmers and plumbers drove bakkies, Moms would zip between extramural activities in Kombis or station wagons, nobody had heard of crossovers or hybrids and occasionally you’d see something which is now almost extinct: a sports sedan.

Nuwe Hyundai Elantra; nou ook met ‘n sportiewe variant 

Die nuwe Hyundai Elantra is nou al ‘n rukkie met ons. Maar daar is weer nuwe lewe geblaas in ‘n model wat met sy bekendstelling ‘n paar jaar gelede die koppe behoorlik laat draai het. Al was dit net vir die sprankelende voorkoms en lyne! Van die kant gesien was dit moeilik om hom van die Beierse vervaardigers te onderskei – behalwe vir die baie billiker prys. En natuurlik het hierdie model in 2012 die prys as Suid-Afrikaanse Motor van die Jaar vir hierdie stilering, en hantering, verwerf.

Paslaken tussen die i20’s en i30’s

‘n Ander opskrif vir die artikel miskien ‘n Noord-Kaapse sêding gewees het;  “tussen die tjoep en die taaier.” Daar is net-net plek vir die paslaken tussen die twee bestaande modelle en dit is meer ‘n saak van die verskil in pryse as in grootte wat die nuwe aankomeling so welkom maak op ons mark.

Stel nuwe standaarde in sy klas

Die stof het nog nie behoorlik gaan lê, en die roes is nog nie behoorlik afgeslaap ná die fenomenale ontvangs en prestasies van Hyundai se nuwe Elantra nie, of die i30 verskyn op die rakke om nog enige moontlike gapings in Hyundai se arsenaal van puik en aantreklike motors in die kompakte segment te vul.

The better value

Picture the scene. You’re at a braai and the obligatory man huddle at the fire has turned its attention to the mandatory subject of cars. It’s your turn and a few years ago you would’ve faked an illness before admitting ownership of a Hyundai Accent, but today you may proudly do so.
