  I would have gotten the H Wagon if not
  Posted by: Kocho on Oct-09-12 10:50 AM (EST)
 

For its pretty bad fuel economy figures compared to what I think such a relatively small and low power car should be getting. It has the older style engine that was phased out in the current generation Huyndai cars - one reason I did not get it, otherwise a nice car and drives fine too.

For the same $$$ as what I could locally find the 2011 Hyundai Elantra Wagon SE for (or whatever the "sport" version was - everyone asked at least $16.6K before fees and taxes and registration), I got a brand new 2011 Honda Insight hybrid that gives me almost 2x the MPG with very little loss in utility comapred to the E. Touring (hatch vs. wagon). I got permanent mounts for Yakima racks installed on it for a quick conversion from rack to no rack...

Of course, that's no help to the OP (as isn't the Elantra too, as both cars are too small for what the OP wants)...
