If you actually drove cars and had your own opinion you wouldn't trust some magazine or publication to tell you what to like.

I disagree with publications all the time because they get wined and dined.

Between members of my family and friends I have driven all sorts of cars. Spent at least a straight week in the Elantra. If you like driving dynamics of aCorolla while enjoying the interior that's better than an Acura then sure this the car for you. Me I like to drive the driving dynamics of a Forte are better. And OP sounds like a younger person life's too short for boring cars.

Looks nicer in black? I'll challenge anyone to pick the Elantra over my Car in its summer guise.

I feel bad for Hyundai and Kia I get better Hwy mileage (hand calc'd) than their ratings. But can't complain about $150 back a year for life.

The Lancer is a POS it handles and drives well but the interior, soundening and build is really sub par. If its not a Evo just get a Mazda 3 same type of driving dynamics but way better interior.
Are you mad? It seems you own a forte and trying you defend how good your forte it while trying to hide how much you hate it.

First of all I am a car enthusiast and I would never buy either a forte or elantra. However I have driven a elantra and it wasn't bad. I am simply saying the elantra is a better choice for the long term, the kia does not have a good resale value. So if you want to drive a car that will lose half its value after its driven off the lot then got for it.

I myself am somewhat a car enthusiast...I didn't even test drive the Elantra it was so ugly...the Forte I test drove and I liked...even though it's simple (imo it looks much better than the elantra and its 2014 upcoming model) The only reason I chose not to buy it was the resale value and the fact that the 2014 coming out will kill its value entirely

Buddy stop youre trying too hard. Yes I own one. I'm objective and I call it like it is. You seem to have a vested interest in the Elantra. Like I said I like the interior but that's not what I was base my buying decision on. Mom owns the Elantra while yes it's a nice car isn't not leaps and bounds better than a except for the interior.

Dont call yourself a car enthusiast because you're not. I bet the closest you have to track time is sitting on a train




...or having one run on you?

You seem pissed off. Clearly the Kia isn't satisfying. I drive an Acura sir.
