Default Hyundai Elantra GT

A freind of mine is considering between Optra Royale, and Elantra GT. He wants to know how much FE can he expect from Elantra petrol and why is it soo cheap yet so loaded?

GT ? and just that?

whats the price diff b/w Optra Royale and Elantra GT

I would vote for Elantra as it would get atleast 10+ and I would be saving 1lac+ (?) over Optra

The royale comes at around 9.13.

The Elantra Petrol gives around 6,7kpl which is worst then Optra. Only the CRDi gives 10 which costs 1Lac more then the optra

hey guys - to add a bit the confusion

The base model of elantra is the GT - petrol. It does not have airbags or ABS !!! (or thats what hyundai's site says) minus a lot of leather, chrome, alloys, climate control etc. And its priced at 6.99L ex-showroom delhi.

see here

but when you compare elantra GT to Optra LS - it says GT has ABS and airbags - now i am confused.

btw - aseem, i think the FE of both the cars should be the same only - they are not known to be very efficient nor too much guzzling.

and elantra is cheaper as hyundai desperately wants a slice of the small market the optra 1.6 has been slowly gathering.

The GT does not have abs and airbags and no alloys too. Confirmed from the dealer.
Specs are same as in goldie's link.
I dont think they updated the info on the comparo (it might be the older gt)

Isn't Optra 1.6 (VGIS) more fuel efficient? If company claims it as 12kmpl, it should be somewhere close to 10?
