I am using Elantra GLS 2005 model since a year from now. Its an ultimate sturdy car when it comes to the drive, space and performance. 1800CC engine is a plus for its pull. It plunges on a highway with full speed without any vibration.
Space: 5 people can sit comfortably with a spacious leg room, which is seldom found in Corolla, Skoda, and in fact not even in the new Elantra Fluidic.
Fuel: 11-12 Kms in city and 13-14 on highways.
Reliability: Genuine parts, DOHC Engine, Ultimate interior quality which is absent in new Elantra Comfort
Luxury: Great comfort and joy of drive itself is a big pleasure.
Trust me no cop dares to stop you because of its rich looks. From side view it resembles exactly like an Audi, or BMW. Now the latest design although has a stylish look as of Civic or City but Cannot beat older version's looks. If got a chance to drive this big bully on highways, don't miss the chance. A luxury sedan, which I recommend wholeheartedly..
Happy and Safe Driving !!!!
