My new word for this is, “spooring”. A contraction of sporty and boring.Idk... without the added spoilers... the hatch just looks like the sedan with a super short trunk lid... the shape is horrible... but without the spoilers like the 10th gen has, it looks like honda is going more for a sportback/liftback sedan rather than a hatchback... (hyundai also offers a similar sportback version of the elantra in other markets). Hopefully if they make an Si hatch, it'll have a spoiler... or at least be available as an accessory to add. Because right now that rounded, smooth back end just looks like the bottom of an egg. I thought the hatch was supposed to be the sporty option now (one of their claimed reasons for cancelling the coupe)... but this just looks like a sedan with a weird bubble butt, it lacks anything even remotely sporty.
Some state XI will be superior to X. That’s a long way off to find out. Let’s go with updated as I think a more reserved design will secure future value in the Gen-X CTR.
