Hyundai Elantra test drive and feedback

Today had tested cars on New Hyundai Elantra 1.6 and 1.8. Below are the feedback:

Exterior (4/5)
-Look sporty, solid and nice build quality.
-Lack of exhaust pipe design.
-Solid door and handle but there was crispy sound when closing the door.

Interior (4.5/5)
-Very solid interior and design but door paddle handle was too light and plastic.
-Having large passengers space and Very huge boot size... that can place around 3 to 4 golf bags.
-Nice and comfort leather seats.

Handling (4/5)
-Excellent smooth response either in low speed or high speed.
-Gear shifting response was not direct and slightly delayed due to automatic 6 speed gearbox.
-Suspension setting was good in road ride.

Performance (4/5)
-Engine power is stunning. Good in pick-up and high rev. Feeling almost like 2L engine car performance.
-Engine design and performance setting is much more better than Kia Forte in 1.6L and 2.0L

Sound proof (4/5)
-Good sound proof from engine bay, gearbox and external 
-Air-conditional noise slightly loud but still can acceptable.

Price (5/5)
-Worth to buy it in 1.6 high spec and 1.8L.
-Should not compare this price with Kia Forte or Honda Civic or Toyota Altis because it was different driving experiences and very good in ergonomics.
-Fuel consumption was good and almost in middle of Toyota Vios and Honda Civic 1.8L.

Overall/Conclusion (5/5)
-Very recommend!
-Value for money, in term of car design, performance, fuel economy and maintenance cost.
