I don't know why Hyundai has kept this car a secret. It's a great all purpose car, lot of room for my sporting gear; my dog loves it. Hwy cruising gets in the low 30's and even stop and go suburban driving is around 28 mpg. Wheelbase is longer than the sedan, it is a nice thruway cruiser. Only complaint is the reverse lockout on the manual -- it's a pull up type, I'd rather just have a gear position. I've had my Elantra Touring 1 1/2 yrs with zero problems. I'm always recommending to folks looking for a great price with lots of features, and lots of utility.
Cargo room. Fuel economy. Fun to drive for a little wagon.
Ax the pull up reverse lockout on the manual in favor of a gear position. My biggest suggest to Hyundai would be to let people know that it exits, it seems to be the forgotten child.
