    I own a 2016 1.6 T limited with only 6300 miles on it and the dual clutch transmission does not work. Three computer upgrades to try and make it work but not yet right. Do not buy the 2017 with this transmission! transmission disengages while you are driving at speed or you lose accelerator control and rpm locks in at 1000 rpm. A danger to drive as you never know when it will happen. Have great sympathy for my dealer who is at odds to make this car run do to Hyundai design. Ford did not make this kind of transmission work either!

    Are you sure about adaptive cruise control? Current version 2016 – no way to get it, the do not provide adaptive just standard cruise control.
