2012 Hyundai Elantra Touring
There are 2 user reviews for the GLS Automatic trim shown below
- SUV-like cargo room for a compact sedan's fuel economy.
- It offers so much; why not just a bit more, so the whole world would find it irrestible?
Purchased As New
Offers almost all features you would want in a vehicle. In fact, I could not find another car that offers so much for the money. I won't bore you with the feature list; it is the GLS automatic.
For the record, this may have the name Elantra, but it is not really a hatchback version of the Elantra. It is a vehicle in its own right, designed in Europe for the European market.
With the Elantra Touring, I get the trunk space of an SUV with the ride and fuel economy of a sedan.
With careful driving, I get 32 mpg in sub-urban driving. Have not got a chance to take it to the highway yet...hoping I will get more there. Drive smooth and gentle, and your mileage increases.
It has no Daytime Running Lights. Bluetooth handsfree is not standard. The exterior paint seems to be a dust magnet. I wish the rear seats would fold flat (there I go again, wishing for everything). Initially, I found the driver's seat slightly uncomfortable, even with lumbar support engaged; but I am now getting used to it, and it feels better and better.
People who have spent over ten thousand dollars more on their cars have compared their cars to mine; theirs have fallen short. I am practicing hiding my elation.
For what it is worth, complete strangers have complemented its looks at parking lots.
