The Monday closest to April 19th is known as Patriots’ Day in Massachusetts, and I guess in Maine, too, as it was once part of Massachusetts. There are parades and the prestigious Boston Marathon is held. To be honest, it’s a good time to get out of state because you can go all the touristy places that are typically filled with tourists, except they’re not because everyone is working. I’ll be in New York City and New Jersey this weekend.
The Patriots’ Day has absolutely nothing to do with today’s mystery car. I just wanted to brag that I have a day off and you probably don’t. That said, I wouldn’t want to drive today’s mystery car from Boston to New York city – it would be quite a misery. As usual, make and model, perhaps chassis configuration.
Hit the jump to see what was last week’s mystery car. Some of you came close but no one really got it right. Geez, you people just aren’t that good with new cars.
Last week’s mystery car was the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT. The GT is a misnomer here, as it’s neither grand nor touring. It’s a nice hatchback and an interesting alternative to the VW Golf, but I wasn’t blown away by it. The Elantra GT Sport is probably a lot more fun, with almost GTI-like 201-hp engine.
