My staid looking steed..... in Indian Cars Posted July 21, 2008 · Report reply Did the 300 km stretch from mysore to mangalore a couple of days back in my new possesion... an Elantra GT . First thing i noticed is that this thing handles much better than its CRDi cousin which has a heavier steering and rolls a lot. Though it is still no where near to an Ikon, it is more than adequate nevertheless. Road grip and the brakes are superb. I got to test this on several occasions during the journey since it was pouring. The drive was comfortable and the engine has lots of power in store. After nearly 150+ km of twisty roads i still came out fresh and stress free and also did the journey in a quick time. Overall it was a fantastic drive!!
