Yes, there's been price inflation, but in this terrible car market there's some really nice new cars available for $15-16k, and slightly used ones for $10k and up. I think it might be harder for Hyundai to get people to go for an over-$20k Elantra than to ante up over $30k for a Genesis. Especially with the over-$20k Elantra sitting next to a very nice Sonata GLS at around $15k, or a Tucson or Santa Fe well under $20k, after rebates and discounts.

Touring now available in Chicago, but I must say sticker shock here as well. I was going to trade in my Civic for this, but not at $21k!

Hyundai must be listening to you. How many Tourings have you seen at your local dealers?
They sold two. Which is not too bad, since sales are terrible in general.

Side note, car prices continue to inflate regardless of the times. You've got your 21K Elantra, or your 26K Mazda3.
$23,850 MSRP for Mazda3 hatch Grand Touring automatic with Moonroof, Bose, Leather, Xenon lights. Current best price for this vehicle si $21 to $21,5K
Joe, How the heck did you arrive at $26K for a Mazda3?
Unless you are referring to a MazdaSpeed 3, which is NOT a good comparison to the Elantra Touring.
Being a Hyundai fan I'd still have to take the Mazda when the Touring is about $21K.

Considering that I can buy a new '09 Fusion or for that matter a Sedona for $16,500 locally, the Elantra Touring won't be on my shopping list.

Does the Grand Touring have leather? I do know the Elantra touring does not have a Bose stereo or factory nav (or leather). When comparing other cars to the Elantra Touring, let's compare apples to apples.

I was talking moreso on the general pricing structure than the specifics.
