Not sure if good deal...
http://www.autoblog.com/2012/06/12/2...art-at-18-395/We don't have all the details just yet, but Hyundai has announced via Twitter that the 2013 Elantra GT (neé Touring) will be priced from $18,395. This does not include the destination charge(*) – Hyundai normally releases pricing numbers that don't factor in delivery, etc. – but we expect it to add around $775 to the GT's final price.
The five-door GT will be joined by a two-door Coupe to expand the popular Elantra franchise to three bodystyles for 2013.
According to Hyundai's tweet – attributed to North American CEO John Krafcik, no less – the GT's base price includes standard features like alloy wheels, seven airbags, heated seats, fog lamps and the automaker's Blue Link infotainment system.
Full GT pricing information is expected to be released soon and we're betting the Coupe won't be far behind, so stay tuned to this space for the official details.

That is a seriously good-looking little car. I like this more refined version of Hyundai's styling language.

My parents just picked up a 2012 Touring knowing full well that the 2013 was going to be all new. While I like the styling of the 2013 I think that they have sacrificed some utility with the new one.
I haven't driven my parents car yet but I am looking for to driving it as I am looking for a wagon to replace the xA in the next year and I will go for something used.
So ya, probably lost a lot of utility... the Elantra Touring was basically the only real compact wagon left outside of the pricier Volkswagen Golf Wagon.
You can tell just by looking at them that the GT will have less utility... but is a lot better looking.
I guess they are banking that people who want a lot of space/utility will move into CUVs, which is probably true.

The old one is a small wagon; the new one is a hatchback. The old one has 65 cu. ft. of cargo space; the new one has 51 cu. ft with the seats down. Despite the old iron-block Beta engine, the Touring is surprisingly spunky and gets better mileage than the sticker would suggest.
