Cool 2.0T or V6

I've been a hyundai fan since my first car ( 02 Elantra GT 5 door hatch 5 speed). I'm now looking to get rid of my 06 sonata LX/limited for a G coupe. Test driving the 4 cyl turbo, I can believe how much FUC**** power that engine got! More horse however is always good especially in RWD which makes me consider the 6 cyl. Money is kinda tight though..... so help me out.... should I get the 4 or 6??

I haven't driven either the 2.0T or the V6, but this is my opinion.
If you've been driving a Hyundai Elantra (I have experience because this is my mom's car) and the Hyundai Sonata (I drove a 2005 Kia Optima V6).. I think it's safe to assume that even the 2.0T will have more than enough power for you to have fun with it.

And if money is tight, definitely get the 2.0T.
But don't make rash decisions until you also test drive the V6.

I have driven them both twice now. It is a tough decision. I think it comes down to how you plan to use the car. If you do mostly highway driving, go with the v6 as the 2.0 runs out of steam at high speeds. If you are mostly around town, I think the 2.0t has a better, lighter feel to it.

I am torn myself, but leaning towards the 2.0t after my last set of test drives. And this is coming from someone who's last two cars have been v6s.

I must have gone through this dilemma a million times myself and invariably, it comes down to whether or not the extra few thousands are worth the extra power and amenities like HIDs, push-start, rims, brakes, etc. and to me, it is.

I can live without the power but I like the exclusives that are available on the V6. If only the 2.0T had push-start, HIDs, mirror mounted turn signals and all black leather instead of the cloth. Once you get to the 2.0T Track the price difference between the 3.8GT seems very close; $4000 close.

I dont know where you are getting this number from but its not even $4000 difference between the two track editions lol. It's more like just under $1000 between getting a 2.0T Track and a 3.8GT.

I'm in the same predicament, i dont know whether to get the 2.0T track or getting the 3.8gt. i will just have to wait and see how they both drive when i finally get a chance to test drive them

IT is in Canada. The Canadian 3.8GT is essentially the Track for you guys.

the turbo 2.0 is sloooowwww. like really, its still a great car, smooth power, and it has some usable power, but its real slow at this point... needs a tune and what not.

the v6 will be a ton of fun, but i would miss the track editions push button/proxy key and HID's plus suspension. its just enough to sway me track and wait for that tune rather than get the v6, have it for a while, do exhaust intake and a tune (and high angle cams), but then have it at a dead end because i dont want to spend 5 G's on a turbo kit just to have it blow up and be a pain in my ass.

i think you would be plenty happy with the 2.0 =], but for sure test drive them both!!

Ban for massive repost

OP, this has been discussed to death but the only way to make the choice is to decide for yourself which car suits your budget and your wants.

The v6 just sounds so good! I roll down the windows for tunnels and such just to hear that sexy exhaust note.

even those it is a massive riposte, it's still nice to see the argument come up now that the cars have been out for a few months.

Most manufacturers don't and hyundai especially seems not to... the naming is VERY confusing too, since Canadian GTs are American Tracks and Canadian base models are similar to the American GT.

The Canadian 4 cylinder is fairly nekkid of options, so lots of deletes compared to what y'all get.

No wonder.. I'm planning on getting a 2.0T Premium here in the States and that's plenty of options for me..
