Commented On: Toyota Corolla Vs. Hyundai Elantra: Compare Cars

Yeah the Elantra looks great, but it has yet to prove itself of having the bulletproof quality or real world gas mileage of the Corolla.

If it succeeds on those two points, Toyota is going to have a huge challenge in upping their game. If not, people who take a chance on the sexy sheet metal of the Hyundai will go back to the stress free ownership experience of the Plain Jane Corolla.

That kind of gouging may work when the car in question is a hot, new serving of automotive eye-candy. But in this instance, the C is essentially a poor-man's Prius hatchback. If they're going to charge more for the cheaper car, why would anybody bother with the C instead of simply opting for the hatchback?

Needs a smaller wheel option. You'll spend the better part of a $1000 to replace the tires. Yikes! I would also like to see a hybrid version offered.

Commented On: 2013 Chevrolet Cruze Wagon vs Hyundai i30 Wagon: Not For U.S. Consumption

I'd buy a Cruze Eco (manual) wagon in a second. Great MPGs and lots of space. The current Elantra Touring was eliminated from my shopping list solely due to its mediocre gas mileage. Choice of roomy, hi-MPG wagons in the US are virtually non-existent. The Prius wagon is a good combo of size and economy, but driving dynamics are nil. Mazda needs to put the Sky-Activ engine in the 5 and that would make for a fun, efficient ride with lots of utility. Ford's C-Max is looking promising, but it's a pity they dropped the sliding doors and I fear its price may take it off my shopping list.
