Nobody thought I'd buy this car, including me, but I haven't regretted since. A lot of power for its curb weight. The other day, I had no problem keeping up with a Mazdaspeed 3 on the freeway going 90mph. Like some people say, you don't realize how fast you are going because the ride is very quiet and smooth. Of course, it also helps that Hyundai has such long warranties on it. Haven't had need to take it back to dealer yet though. Roomy interior and superb upholstery, though not leather, all the nice touches are there including the "fake" wood plastic finish. Large trunk. Exterior styling is ok, but not the best. But for a $23K car, it's not bad.
Acceleration, sports car feel on the freeway (due to the high torque output), roomy interior and excellent upholstery for a non-luxury car, large trunk, comfortable seats both front and back, excellent performance and value to price ratios.
I can make suggestions, but it would add to the cost. It's fine as is.
