Sadly lacking

First the good bit(s). For a one litre 3 cylinder car with only 100bhp the car can be quite nippy when accelerating through the mostly smooth changing automatic gearbox , and if it’s in sports mode it does get truly mental! Although I tend to take it easy most of the time for reasons which will become clear later in the review, Steering is nice and light, just the way I like it. That’s about all I can say positively, it’s quite cramped and the rear seats are particularly awkward to access for some reason, on less than perfect roads is can be a bit clunky on the suspension , interior fit and finish is ok but not superb, but bear in mind it’s not a premium vehicle, the radio is ok but for some reason I have found myself using it less frequently than our last car, a Seat Ateca? To be honest it’s mostly ok but the biggest gripe that I have is that the fuel economy is nowhere near what the claimed mpg is, in the 14000 miles I’ve driven it’s averaged a paltry 39 mpg not the 53mpg the specs or the salesperson alluded to, I can get very close to that in my old school 22 year old ford focus 1.6 automatic saloon. Considering that the Hyundai is a hybrid I was expecting better! I will probably see the year out and then get shut of it tbh.
