/sigh. I kinda like the redesign, but it really does look just like a Sonata other than the back. While I don't mind the Sonata, my biggest beef is the fact they are sticking to the anemic 1.6T and this terrible DCT. Oh well, it is what it is, and doing it this way keeps the pricing down where most people can afford it. :)

I wouldn't necessarily call it anemic. I think if that is your word for it, you bought the wrong car. Either way, it's not the same engine despite the similar power numbers.

@R1600Turbo I take it back, then. :) I can agree I probably bought the wrong vehicle, but it is may also be a case of my car not performing like it should. I got the OBD reader and the app to read the boost, so that I can make a better assessment of its performance. It just feels like the 2.0L with the Auto performed better on acceleration than this ES. According to the linked article:
Powering the Elantra N Line is the same turbocharged 1.6-liter engine featured in the old Elantra Sport and GT N Line, as well as the Veloster Turbo.
I do also agree that my disgruntlement with it may be more with the transmission than the engine...

I personally love the new look, especially the rear.I was not a fan of the 2019/2020 fronts, hence why I picked up a 2018, but I think they've done a good job of shaping that front. Not a huge fan of the interior, especially missing the D shape wheel and making the infotainment screen a cheaper model. The drive select switch is an interesting add-on that I felt was missing from my 6MT 2018.

Article is wrong. :) This engine is the new Smartstream unit, pretty much shares nothing with the current 1.6L.
