Used Car: 2012 Hyundai Elantra Touring Review
Though reviewers said it has a surprisingly roomy, high-quality interior, they were let down by the 2012 Hyundai Elantra Touring’s lackluster acceleration.
The 2012 Hyundai Elantra Touring comes with a four-cylinder engine, and some critics said that the Elantra Touring feels especially strained when carrying a heavy load or traveling at highway speeds. The 2012 Elantra Touring is available with a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic. The EPA reports that the 2012 Elantra Touring gets up to 23/31 mpg city/highway, which is good for the class. Some reviewers said the Elantra Touring has a comfortable ride, strong brakes and nimble handling. However, others remarked that the Elantra Touring leans too much during cornering.
Automotive critics liked the 2012 Elantra Touring’s high-quality cabin materials and practical interior design. The front and rear seats have plenty of head- and legroom for most test drivers, they said. The Elantra Touring has a maximum of 65.3 cubic feet of cargo space, which is good for the class. Standard features in the 2012 Hyundai Elantra Touring include a USB port, satellite radio and a six-speaker stereo. Available features include a sunroof, leather upholstery and heated front seats.
The 2012 Hyundai Elantra Touring has a poor reliability score for the class.
Other Wagons to Consider
The 2012 Toyota Prius v offers more available features, and it gets great fuel economy for the class. Additionally, reviewers were impressed with the Prius v’s spacious seats and large cargo area.
The 2012 Subaru Outback has standard all-wheel drive and more cargo space than the Elantra Touring. The Outback also pleased critics with its controlled handling and roomy back seat.
