The Sport’s 201-pull 1.6-liter turbocharged four moves more criticalness to reviving. Cutting loose around the slants outside of San Diego in the midst of an expansive evaluation, we valued the diversion mode that hardened the Elantra’s directing feel and held moves longer. On a later torrent from Las Vegas through Death Valley, we were to a great degree awed with the Sport’s quick security.
