      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I have had my Hyundai Lantra 1.6 SI Estate for several months now. This is my second Hyundai and is a 1999 T reg. My previous one was an N reg Lantra Jura 1500. The 1.6 Lantra Estate had 13000 miles on the clock,when I bought it. It feels much quicker in acceleration than my previous Lantra 1500. It corners well, with good road holding and a comfortable ride.The only criticism in this department is the power steering is a bit too light for my taste. The SI designation means it does not have all the "bells and whistles" of the GSI. However, I believe it has enough standard features to qualify it as an honest workmanlike estate, and in my opinion is better looking than the equivalent saloon. It has a driver's airbag, good effective brakes, electric front windows, a split folding rear seat, rear window wiper with rear washer, two speed plus variable intermittent wipers, comfortable seats and the obligatory cup holders. The load area also has a cover as standard. This seems a little bit flimsy but is OK if you treat it with care. The rear sill is low, so loading heavy objects into the back is no problem. The heater is effective, which is important in an estate car, as there is more interior that needs heating. I have not accurately measured the fuel consumption, but I believe it to be around 32 to 34 mpg on shortish journeys, with more on longer ones. I certainly put no more petrol in this car than I did in my previous 1500. If you are in the market for a medium size estate you should consider the Lantra 1.6 SI. I paid £6995 for mine, and I believe it is money well spent.
