2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe Road Test Review

2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe Road Test Review : Road & Travel Magazine

 By Tim Healey

One way to make a sporty-looking car look even sportier is to lop off two doors, and that's what Hyundai has done with its new-for-2013 Elantra coupe.

The 2013 Hyundai Elantra has garnered positive press for its good looks, and a coupe version can't hurt that rep. Meet the next competitor to Kia's Forte Koupand Honda's two-door Civic.

The Basics
Besides being short two doors, the Elantra Coupe doesn't differ all that much from the sedan. That means it has the same 1.8-liter engine, the same 40-mpg promise (with the manual transmission), and the same "fluidic design" styling theme. It comes in two trims: SE (sporty) and GS (well-equipped), and offers two six-speed transmissions, one manual and one automatic. It’s also longer and wider than the Civic coupe.

Features & Prices
Bluetooth is standard on the Elantra Coupe, and available features include a USB port, an auxiliary port, 17-inch wheels (16s are standard), push-button start, a navigation system with a 7-inch touch screen and rearview camera, a tilt/telescopesteering wheel, fog lamps, and satellite radio.

A GS with the manual transmission starts at $17,445, while a top-line SE with the automatic will start at $20,745. Neither price includes the $775 destination fee. To continue the review, click here.
