Hyundai Elantra

Hyundai's small Elantra four-door sedan is one of the company's top sellers worldwide, but lives in the shadow of the i30 hatch locally.

It was first known here as a Lantra, after another car company objected to the name, but claimed back its rightful title in 2001. The sixth generation of the Elantra went on sale locally in 2015, and is offered in three grades; the Active and Elite are sold with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that can be had with a six-speed manual or automatic, while the range-topping 1.6-litre turbocharged SR is manual only.

Current prices range from $21,950 for the Elantra Active 2.0 MPi to $31,585 for the Elantra SR TURBO (RED).
