mad.gif ......................... I got a great idea! Why don't Hyundai bring both over to America and let us decide. Give the hatch a little more sportyness; make the wagon a little more family friendly so that Elantra name can appeal to a wide range of people. Didn't they learn a lesson from the GT? huh.gif

Or just have brought over the hatch. I'm sure the cargo capacity with the seats folded down in the hatch is decent. Look, the Elantra sedan is pretty generic looking. The new wagon is boxy. I think bringing the sportier hatch would have been the way to go. Then again Hyundai tends to do exactly the opposite of what I want. laugh.gif

I keep hoping that at one point they will bring the hatch here......maybe they are introducing the wagon first as it seems that North Americans have to have the biggest of models. Then down the road introduce the hatch....

I just hope one of the World Engines will eventually make their way into the Elantra.

And to compete with the new El Camino, the Elanchero. biggrin.gif

(It was a quick chop, I apologize for the poor quality of it.)


I would buy that. They could call it the Elantino.

They are fond of saying "most ________" blank in its class. If they are after the Matrix, Vibe and Mazda3 hatch, they need as many marketing angles as they can. I like the hatch better, too. The Elantra Touring hatch and wagon both look a lot like the Saturn Astra 5-door hatch. Both have European roots.

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

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.



Just scanning through some of these older FD posts, and have to comment.

Having the wagon for a few years now, she's grown on me.
The hatch looks odd to me, as you don't see any around here in Canada.

Without the roof rack, the wagon does look better.
Other mods will help.
