First time Hyundai

by from Alexandria, MN on May 19, 2017

This little vehicle fits all of the needs I asked of it and is a pleasure to drive. The gas mileage is a huge bonus!

I cant believe that Hyundai , after just 2 years of production, dec ided to call it quits on the Elantra Touring. THis is a GREAT vehicle for the money. It hugs the road, very quiet ride, decent on gas, and extremely roomy interrior.. What a SHAME it is that this style of vehicle is no longer readily available to the public. THAT is my ONLY complaint to Hyundai!

The sales person was excellent as was the over all buying process for my very first Hyundai. The Hyundai drives like a dream, gets excellent gas mileage and handles better then any car I've ever owned. My hat's off to the sales person who made it all possible in explaining in detail what I could expect from the new Hyundai. Everything she said was 100% true. Thank you Hyundai for the best car ever!

I have manual transmission, about 50k miles put on it. Not one problem, and is a pleasure to drive in all conditions. The drivetrain is set up for Euro tastes, and probably gets less gas mileage that way, but sure is fun to drive. Storage is great, very roomy. Headroom and rear seat passenger legroom just fantastic. No complaints.

Safe and reliable

by from montreal, Quebec on April 29, 2013

I love my Touring. My main concerns when looking to purchase a car were, roomy, safe, reliable and cost efficient. It has exceeded my expectations.

Greatest Small Car I've owned since 1980 Omni

Replaced 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe with this Elantra Touring because I have very bad knees and had trouble getting in and out of Santa Fe. Did not want to lose the cargo room, so Elantra Touring was the next best thing. Unfortunately Hyundai will no longer build the Touring after 2012 and I had to search for one on internet, using Cars.com. Found what I purchased with 48 miles on odometer 180+ miles from home but was willing to travel to get it. Purchased it on 3/1/2013 and as of today (3/28/13) have 1034 miles on it after traveling to Austin, TX. Traveled a tat over 200 miles on half tank (holds 14) for 28.5 mpg and car is not yet "broken in." Great for older person for comfort, loading items in back & economical.

I actually bought this to replace my poor old Dodge Dakota...while I will not be hauling any lawn mowers in it, its a comfortable little car that gets good gas mileage (23/24 mpg city in winter...one long highway trip...35.5 mpg at 60-65 mph, minimal secondary roads) and has enough room to haul the equipment I need in my part time (retirement) work. Plenty of room for this 6' 2" frame in front or back, seat good for my forlorn lumbar discs (can easily drive 2 hours without stopping). Peppy, perhaps too peppy...though it seems like it could use another gear on the highway. Handles adequately/well, great stereo. Wish I could have found a standard, just to add to the fun driving it. I am a little worried about the low profile tire/alloy wheel vs. pothole scenario. Compared with the immediate competition its a real buy.

The Hyundai Elantra Touring is a 5-door mid-compact that has good features. Back seat passengers have plenty of legroom. with the rear seats folded down, the clear space is great for hauling recent finds at the antique auction including desks, bureaus etc. I was also surprised by the tucked away hold-down clips found on the bed of the cargo area. A nice feature!
