Performance -- Feels a bit sluggish at low RPMs, but that gets you the high mpg, but pushing it up into the higher RPMs gives you plenty of performance, and the sports mode helps me keep in the RPM range I want without having to get a fully manual car.
Comfort -- I feel as comfortable in this as I do in a Buick, but I don't feel like I'm driving a boat!
Value -- For a "more full" sedan with packed features, it's great value! But if I were buying for myself, I find it hard justifying spending more on the Elantra vs. the Accent.
Fun: It's not really fun, but it gets you point A to point B wonderfully.
Design: A bit funky, but looks modern and advanced. Interior is more subtle.
