TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2022 Hyundai Elantra excites us with its styling and gas mileage, but loses us with interior quality. The 2022 Hyundai Veloster N continues to take up rent-free space in the Civic Type R’s head—for now. The 2022 VW GTI is a good hot hatch, but the Golf R fully realizes the platform’s potential.
