According to Autocar, the eighth-generation Golf’s hot (but not hottest) hatch variant won’t go the […] The post Weirded Out by the Idea of a Golf GTI Mild Hybrid?

Hyundai Prepared to Juice Elantra GT Sales, Without Adding Extra Juice

Hyundai’s Elantra GT is an oft-overlooked compact hatch, muscled aside by Honda’s compact king Civic, the handling (and snob) appeal of Volkswagen’s Golf and GTI, and further threatened by the impending release of a Toyota Corolla hatch that doesn’t suck.

I've logged 2,500 miles and am super happy with it--except the color; I wanted it in silver, but VW doesn't offer it, so I went with this dark grey. The Alltrack is only offered in seven fairly boring colors, because us station wagon buyers are a bunch of squares. But folks who purchase VW's sporty hot hatch, the Golf R, are a lot m...
