Hyundai Elantra 2007: Compact or Mid-size?
The 2007 Hyundai Elantra is rated by the EPA as a mid-sized sedan, based on interior volume. It actually has more interior room than some of the standards of the mid-sized class, e.g. the Accord EX and the Mazda6. So... is it a compact car or a mid-sized car? If you are looking for a mid-sized four-cylinder car, would you consider the Elantra?

It is a midsize.
You could say it is a compact, you would be incorrect.
Elantra is a midsize.
Still, I think it will attract many buyers who might have been looking at a low-end mid-sized sedan but realize the Elantra has enough room, at a much lower price.
Actually, as of 06 the Sonata is now classified as a large car by the EPA. This "upsizing" seems to be a Hyundai strategy to provide something different.
And, yes, it's deliberate upsizing, and I fully support that.
Now if only they'd come out with a convertable - but that's a completely different forum...
