Beautiful Fast Little Beast — I love this car, it's great in every aspect. Great on gas, even as a turbo. And low cost maintenance. Never had a single issue with it. The rims add to the sleek style of the car. And it sounds great!

Comfortable, many luxury features that are not offered in other cars such as front and rear heated seats. Great reliability.

Cons

With 24 city and 35 highway mpg the fuel economy was good but not excellent.

A Reliable, Safe, And Fun Family Car. — The pros of the car include the luxury options, overall built quality and comfort of the car. The included options in the luxury package are excellent options for this price range of a vehicle. The mpg is was good but not great.

Fuel mileage ... hard to drive this beast the speed limit so fuel economy suffers.

Fast, Reliable And Fun To Drive! — Love just about everything about this car. I can't think of anything other than I wish it got 75 mpg on the highway! Gets decent mileage IF you can control your speeds which is tough in this beast. It flies ... the twin sequential turbos by Hyundai are amazing.

Clean, Comfy, Classy Car — I like the looks and roominess of the car. I dislike the road noise. I wish the cabin was insulated better. The gas peddle is a bit touchy. It gets good gas milage and makes for a nice commuter car. Good sound system too! The technology is great: back up camera and gps are awesome!

Pros

Good handling in all situations, and speeds. Sensible controls, well designed, with easy to reach cruise, blue tooth and essential controls.

Cons

Gas mileage.  I expected 33+ overall but tend to get only 29mpg. I personally don't like the LED lighting on the radio display: its too bright when the car engine is off/power on.

Solid Car With Less Than Steller City Mpg — Great handling, very good acceleration. Stops very short distance. Nice styling. I always feel safe driving this car!! MPG in the city could be better, as I usually get 25 in the city and 32 highway. The back seat 60/40 release latch are located in the trunk and a bit awkward to keep unlatched before pushing both seats down but its doable.

Super Car Great Value And Reliability — Superb car. Great fuel economy. Spacious trunk and cabin. Impressive acceleration . Reliability. Attractive design and has most modern conveniences; MP3,Bluetooth, USB. The Hyundais retain their value and from what I've seen as reliable as their Japanese counterparts. On the mark on all levels!

Above average fuel economy, sleek looks , comfortable ride, good performance and over err all excellent acceleration. From my research Hyundai stacks up or even exceeds the

Practical ,great Performance And Ride — Exceeds my expectations on almost all levels! Can satisfy the family sedan needs, techier Need and a good amount for those looking for good performance too! I'll admit I wasn't a Hyundai person prior to inheriting this vehicle but now I am convinced they're more than legit.

Pros

It gets excellent gas mileage and is a very sleek looking car. It rides comfortably both for driver and passengers. It's not too big or too small.

Cons

I honestly love this car but I am looking for something with more storage space like a hatchback or crossover.

Great Car And A Great Deal! — This car is fun and easy to drive. It runs smoothly and is a gas saver. I average about 30-32 miles per gallon on a tank of gas with a good mixture of city/highway driving. Truly a great car!

A Head Turner!! — Superb design, affordable price and maintenance, comfortable ride, powerful and economic. Two color interior gives it a refined look and a even more charm to a very well designed interior. Nissan, Toyota, Honda, Chevy, don't get even close to it's good looks, Ford however could make a run at it with the new fusion. Overall a very nice car, a pleasure to have.
