hard core touring

2011 Hyundai Elantra Touring SE 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
Hi, update after 20,000 miles in my 2011 elantra touring se model. Right to the point;
could use more top end horsepower for higher speed interstate travel, it doesn't really like to average over 80, especially up hills of any consequence. Off the line response is excellent, making easy work of around town driving. Better than many cars I've driven like a turbo VW or small mercedes; they are built for the high speed cruising at some expense of around town response. Perfectly reliable thru 20k miles. Drove through the 100 year storm last winter across tennessee, arkansas and oklahoma. I mounted Conti DWS tires, as the stock tires couldn't get me out of my snow covered driveway in Nashville!
great looks, reliability, in- town response, huge cargo area, inexpensive, comfortable for a few hours at a time.
Softer seats for the leather clad versions, more top end horsepower for high speed travel, better fuel economy would be nice; I average 20 in town, 28 on the freeway (75mph, or so)
