Pros

The car is all about commuting and reliability.

Cons

It's a little tight at times when I have more than 3 friends in the car.

The Car Is Practical And Comfortable. — I like that the car is easy to take care of and maintain. It seems like I always have to wash it, but when it's clean, it feels good to take it for a ride. I'm glad I have my car, but I wish I had more time to take it on the open road with some friends up the coast.

Amazing Car For A Nice Price — I felt the acceleration was on par with the type of car, it's not the fastest on the road, but it's there when you need it. The handling was great, I've never lost control, even in snowy or rainy conditions. All electronics seemed to work well and I haven't noticed a single issue so far. Braking is great as well. I feel 100% safe while driving this car. It's comfortable, viability is pretty good, and does it's job. All in all, a great experience, I am very satisfied with the vehicle and will continue to stay with Hyundai.

This Is A Great Car And Does Well Among Its Competitors — Performance - For it to be a 1.6L 138 hp motor it has strong pull. Braking and handling are ok. Initial quality is high for entry level B/C segment car. Haven't had it long enough to know how reliable it is. Appearance: Its cute to say the least. I have added some subtle mods to enhance its looks that work for me. Cost of Ownership - Its a cheap econobox so everything is pretty inexpensive to maintain. Gas at $4.00/gal barely cost $40 to fill up and lasts two weeks Fun factor - The car is a blast to drive. Not necessarily sporty but it is fun to rev the engine a little and use the auto/manual option. This coming from a guy that drove a Malibu.

Pros

Not as nice as my Elantra, but economy was the prime incentive.

Cons

Two things I wish I'd negotiated better - no tint, and I just found out no spare tire. Egads!

Economical Car With A Great Warranty — I bought it because it was economical and because of the great warranty. I haven't made a mistake - low mileage, Hyundai roadside assistance, peace of mind. It's quite zippy for a four cylinder but still gets great mpg.It's quite attractive, and the hatchback design offers a lot of storage space for a small car.

Nice — Very handy and good-looking car. I have 1400 cc. using CVVT engine. Performance, fuel economy, quietness very successful. The most successful in the Class B cargo volume. Modern and ergonomic cockpit. The sound system was adequate. ESP and VSA as standard. Mediterranean to the requirements of a successful and quiet air conditioning. 1400 cc. engine turbo prop could have been.
