The metaphorical under-30 beauty from a specific world region getting older and turning into not staying beautiful.
This Elantra has turned into it's mother.

Not nice. Its an ugly clone of the shipping container wagons everyone makes.

Even though it's very similar, the hatch looks much better.





This just shows the concept of a sporty Elantra is totally lost on the brains over at Hyundai USA. fit.gif

I don't much care for the looks of either, but I will concur that the hatch is the better of the two.

Does anyone else see Lumina APV/Silhouette/Trans Sport minivan in that? All it needs is sliding doors.

That hatchback has bigger wheels, side sills, it's a nicer color shot in better light and backdrop.
The wagon has a tint job that my mom could have done.

Enrique, that's all true so I found the cars in full side profile. Wagon still looks boxier, crappier and less sporty.

My main point here is I believe that Hyundai USA has their heads up their ass at times. Clearly they don't give a damn about the loyal Elantra hatchback owners/fans and to be honest, that sucks. I'm not blaming Hyundai, they designed a vehicle in Europe that should have been a replacement for the GT... the i30, but we're not getting it. thumbsdown.gif If I sound a little pissed off, I am. Hyundai is turning the Elantra into something few enthusiasts would want and it directly affects this club. Not that they needed to listen to members here but the poll below clearly shows enthusiasts don't like the wagon (except Bobzilla lol):

But the Elantra Hatch was so ugly. . . I can understand going away from it. . . biggrin.gif

No offense to you "loyal hatchback owners" I just never liked the hatch. Wagons, OK. Sedans, OK. Hatches, no. I see hatch and think Chevette. . .it's a subconsicous reaction.

Great post! Thanks for the 2 profile pics. I agree 100%, the wagon is ugly compared to the hatchback. The lines are just better and the back end is not as bulky. I think losing the roof rack might help but I still perfer the hatchback.

I agree that the hatch looks much better... having grown up in the UK with "hot hatches" I would rather buy a hatch than an estate car (wagon) but in those pix I must admit I much prefer the wagon's wheels B)
