The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
Not quite a hot hatch, the 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT gives up some rear-seat space in the name of cargo room and European style. The 2013 Mazda 3 drives with a lot more sophistication and verve than you might expect for a small car this affordable, practical, and fuel-efficient.
