2012 Hyundai Elantra Touring SE Review
Everyday Grocery Getter That Handles Better Than Those Small Suvs. — Our main reason for owning this Hyundai Elantra Touring is we prefer a small station wagon over the ever popular small SUVs that are everywhere. I like that it feels like a car...a really nice, well made small sedan...instead of a small truck. The body roll is at a minimum, the ride is, well, car-like, and the performance is surprisingly good from the little 4 banger. Hyundais today are not the Hyundais of ten years ago. The build quality is first rate, the leather seats are excellent...and heated! These new Hyundais are definitely worth a look if you want a good, reliable, everyday car for taking the kids to school and picking up dinner! I love the 17 inch wheels and low profile tires. Really adds to the style as well as the handling. My wife calls it her go-kart!
Primary Use: Family transportation
Pros: Looks great, runs great, costs next to nothing to operate and maintain, does the family car job while feeling like a much more expensive sports sedan.
Cons: It's a family car, not a track-day car. But I guess that really isn't a con now, is it?
