An Elantra that’s fun to drive? Yes, it’s possible, with the Elantra Sport! Although it doesn’t quite hit the mark in terms of driving dynamics compared to its German and Japanese rivals, the Elantra Sport remains a fun car to drive. The basics are there: a 1.6-litre turbocharged four, a stiffened suspension, larger brakes, as well as a choice of two available transmissions, a six-speed manual and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. With a 0-100 km/h acceleration time of only 6.3 seconds, and a starting price that’s lower than all the cars on this list, the Hyundai Elantra Sport is currently the best performance bargain out there.
