Purchased As New
After lots of research, we decided on the new Elantra Touring for our first "family" car. The safety and convenience features are fabulous. We love the stereo, especially the iPod connectivity. We're still undecided about XM radio; it's great, but I'm not sure if I want to pay for it. The displays are easy to read and the controls are intuitive. I would rather have had power front seats than heated front seats, but I may feel differently if we have a cold winter. If people wanted to pay for them, leather seats and a navigation system might have been nice options. I liked the feel of driving with the 17" wheels better than the 16", so that and the sunroof are why we chose the SE. I'd hate to ask for more features because the price really can't be beat by anything similarly equipped in its class, and Hyundai has the best warranty. I never thought I'd want a red car, but I liked the Chili Pepper Red with Beige interior so much more than the black interior or the silver or blue that only come with black interior. The black and gray colors were nowhere to be found in my area. I'm a new mom, and installing the infant carseat couldn't have been easier. The back seat and storage area are very roomy and easy to load. Some reviewers have complained about lack of power, but for a commuter who takes some pretty windy roads with an infant in the back seat, it has all the power I need as it handles perfectly and feels very safe. Besides, I wouldn't want them to have to increase the price and reduce the fuel economy for a more powerful engine. The only thing I'm having trouble getting used to is the firmness of the front seats. For looks, cargo, and value -- if you're looking at other small wagons and crossovers, don't overlook the Elantra Touring! I am so glad I found this car.
