2013 4dr Hatch 148-horsepower 1.8L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
We purchased this car for $18950 out the door in September 2012. For that price, it has excellent features.
2013 0 Very feature laden. For those who appreciate sheer quantity of electronic features, they will not be disappointed with the GT hatchback. The steering wheel has a high button count.

2013 4dr Hatch 148-horsepower 1.8L I4
6-speed manual FWD
Few put the features in cars like Hyundai does for the price. Mine is a base model with the Touch & Go package. I still got a better bluetooth phone system than Honda. With automatic contact syncing and voice recognition. Proximity key and push button start, Cruise control, fog lights, 6 speaker stereo with aux/usb mp3 ports, and bluetooth media streaming. The radio indexes my iPod touch quick and easily lets me find the song I want. I also got the auto-dimming mirror w/compass, bluelink and homelink. Many features are customizable such as door lock behavior and speed sensitive volume.

The owners manual is a joke. The index is next to useless, does not include the installed radio, does not explain the ESC system, and doesn't mention the bluetooth system in the car. They need to re-write it if they produce the Touring again.
