9. Hyundai Elantra GT
From there, cruise on over the Hyundai for a trip back to reality. Blending sporty fun with functionality is the all-new Elantra GT. The successor to the function-over-form Elantra Touring, the GT aims to add some spice to the segment and take on cars like the Mazda3, Ford Focus hatch and VW Golf.
It gets the same 148 hp 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine as the rest of the Elantra lineup, but offers some unique toys like a hidden back-up camera and a brand-first button that delivers different steering ratios to better suit your mood.
And while you’re there, check out the Elantra Coupe too.
