new Accent VS. Elantra?

Why is it that the Elantra is the "better" and more expensive model here when the new 2012 accent has TONS of features?? Anybody drive one? I'm taking about the hatchbacks more specifically.

anytime you buy the base model of a vehicle you will pay more for the engine but won't get any features you know you're going to want.
when buying a new car, never look at the base model price, most dealerships don't even have those cars.

the 2011/2012 Elantra Touring (Wagon style) has the same styling, just the 2012 comes with more standard features like Fog lights, roof racks and so on... body is same...

Elantra is a bigger car then Accent. I have the 2011 Elantra Touring and I like it.. Lots of room to haul shit... Gas mileage could be better... lots of road noise... Get the new Elantra GT (hatch) if you want smaller car...
My Buy&Sell Feedback, Thanx

+1 on new elantra GT, pretty unique styling, not a bad car if u want a bit more trunk space than the sedan.
