I own both a 13 Elantra Limited & a 13 Elantra GT. I lined them up last night & drag raced to 70mph & my GT got out the hole quicker but lost by a car length at the finish. Both cars are auto & 1.8 engines & drivers were about the same weight . I was really surprised that the GT lost as it's suppose to be the sportier of the two cars. Just curious if I was the only one shocked at the outcome:eek:

Odd

I was doing some searching on how much horsepower and torque each on had and they both had 148hp with 131lb torque. I thought the GT would have won due to it being lighter than the sedan. I did come across Edmunds review and it did mention something interesting. One of the cons for the GT was a "sluggish automatic transmission". I am not sure what that means for the GT but here is the link to it.
