Hyundai Elantra Touring





Basically a wagon version of the Elantra based on the european version.
It's pretty nice. But I'm not sure. The Rondo isn't setting sales charts in fire...

The body isn't hugely interesting...but the US Elantra sedan needs that nose job YESTERDAY. So much better than the Disney/Chinese knock-off half smiley, half something, mostly cheap nose the current car has. Changes the car a lot, and positively.

The grill looks almost identical to the Civic
that I'm surprised that Honda didn't say anything.
Also, the emblem is a knock off from Honda.

Is this like the Rondo & Mazda 5 or more like a Mazda 3 Mattrix. If the latter I would like it.

this car isn't even worth commenting about.

Never has a more ignorant statement been posted. This car was voted as the car of the year in Austrailia!

It Bested such makes as Toyota, Nissan, Mercedes,etc.

In the land down under, Aussies are a very picky bunch when it comes to their cars!

I like it. I think it would sell well as there are few wagons available now. I also like the new dashboard.

hyundai chairman, aka, the big cheese of hyundai AND kia worldwide was imprisoned for"STEALING" from the 2 companies. YES! your hyundai / kia company is run by an imprisoned thief. He is now set to speak/preach on ethics, what a croc, hey.....enjoy your Korean crap. ya they rate at the top, i'm sure , that "no-one" was paid off for that. This is an upstanding company. When a crook is at the helm, nothing these companies say or do matters or is reality!

I have a 03 Elantra and love it. I would consider this if it's priced right. The problem with the Rondo is that it's priced too high. Most of the ones you see on the lot are around 22k. You can get a Rav4 or CRV for that price.

Rondos are on the expensive side, though I've seen new '07s for around $16K (LX with 3rd row seat & Convenience Pkg).

However, if they'd send us the Aussie version of this with the CRDi engine it'd definitely be on my list.

That's all you can say? Not the best Hyundai bashing troll remark I've heard. Now I know Hyundai's are good because all the trolls are staring to nitpick from two year old info. Hyundai bashing is an art form and I can tell your a novice.

What is it with ignaramouses? they keep spouting trash and spreading lies from their pie holes! Want proof? Here is the scope on why the Chairman of Hyundai was indicted not that it matters to liars and propagandist like "truth"
here is a quote from the links at the end of this post:

quote "South Korea indicted on Tuesday the chairman of the Hyundai Motor group on charges of misusing company funds and breach of trust, a senior prosecutor said.

Chung Mong-Koo, 68, the head of the country's top automaker, was arrested in late April after a month-long investigation into allegations that Hyundai Motor and its affiliates had created slush funds to offer cash for political favours." end quote


It was bribery the 2nd oldest sin. It only makes news when you are caught. But what really is at issue here is the hate on this brand by haters who have never nor will ever test drive or consider a Hyundai.

Don't act as if you know this brand or cars for that matter by ripping on a brand because you are a hater.

If you don't like Hyundai then say so just don't post garbage that makes you look like a fool, a foolish, ignaramous fool!

Ted you babbling idiot fool you, if you read your rambling non-sensicle rant, you will, or someone that is sane will, see that it has no ryme or reason. Hyundai builds garbage, do not associate with them. you obviously work for them because toyota, nissan and Honda told you where to go. Don't feel bad, until kia and hyundai pull out of the country, they do need sub-standard people to sell their sub-par cars. The Hyundai/ Kia boss is a crook....end of story.
