I have been aggravated more than once by what will not fit through the "opening" of the 2011/2012 Elantra Limited. Beware buyer! Don't buy this car thinking you have lots of trunk space. Most luggage and small things will fit fine. That is about it. Ordinary size containers that you won't have any doubt about -- will not fit into the Elantra trunk. Yes the trunk appears to be roomy but three things will frustrate you.
1) The trunk opening (circumference) is very confining. I can get larger containers into my back door than I can fit through the opening of the trunk. Sadly, this makes me put things on nice leather seats that I would not ordinarily place there. Folks -- I am not talking about "big" items. You've been warned. 2) The seat release mechanism drops down about 4 inches into the trunk and this limits the sizes of what you can slide through the trunk onto the back seats. Hyundai should have recessed the seat release mechanism. Lastly -- the trunk lid hinges are disproportionately huge and swing way down inside the trunk -- again limiting your actual storage space.
I love my Elantra. Bought a 2011 and then a 2012! HATE THE TRUNK -- CONSTANT AGGRAVATION.
