2012 Hyundai Accent SE 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 6A)
I had previously driven a 2005 Subaru Forester which was totaled in a collision. So when I was looking for a replacement I began to think about what I really needed. I commute around 50 miles per day to work, so fuel economy was very important. Secondly I am 6 feet tall, so I really need ample legroom when I drive. Most cars I end up hitting my knee on the center console, not with the Accent. I did not even have to move the seat all the way back. There is so much interior room in this small car. So far on the highway Im getting 42 mpg, and with my commuting Im still averaging 37 mpg! Not bad. I really love the pick up of this small engine, it feels very peppy.

The only thing I can think of is a bit more padding on the door where you rest your elbow when driving. It's a very small complaint.
