Hyundai Elantra Coupe (2013)

  
CARBARN | Hyundai Elantra Coupe (2013) | Coupes, by Their nature, are a risky proposition. Hyundai is estimating the coupe will hit 40 mpg on the highway with the manual (39 with the automatic).  Because it uses the same architecture (unlike the Elantra GT hatch) as the Sedan, Coupe Elantra four-door shares the 106.3-inch wheelbase's, though the two-door is 0.4 inches longer. Surprisingly, the interior space Remains virtually the same, with the Coupe having slightly less hip room due to its sportier front buckets. Even cargo room and rear headroom REMAIN the same - 14.8 cubic feet and 37.1 inches, respectively.


Suspension settings are further tweaked on SE models, the which come with 17-inch wheels and lower-profile 215/45 tires instead of the 16-inch wheels and 205/55 tires Offered on the base GS. The Elantra Coupe also receives unique three color choices - Monaco White, Black Noir Pearl, and Volcanic Red. Visually, the Elantra Coupe looks much like the sedan. 
 


From the side, the elongated front door and small rear window conspire to make-the Coupe Elantra seem smaller than it really is. It's from the rear (or at least the rear three-quarter) where the Elantra Coupe looks the best and sportiest - thanks in no small part to the visible exhaust tips. It Remains to be seen how much of an impact the Coupe Elantra Elantra will have on total sales, but a variant Executed properly never hurt anybody.
