Here are the first photos of the 2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe. Aside from the elongated front doors, the 2013 Elantra Coupe also gets different fog lamp surrounds, black trim on the lower part of the rear bumper and a new trunk incorporating a spoiler in the design.
It’s also half an inch longer than the sedan at 178.7-inches, while the rest of the dimensions remaine the same at 69.9-inches wide, 56.5-incnes tall with a 106.3-in. wheelbase.
The Elantra Coupe’s total interior volume of 110.2 cubic feet and 14.8 cubic feet trunk both exceed the 2012 Honda Civic Coupe and 2012 Kia Forte Koup by “large margins”. The new Elantra Coupe sharing the same 1.8-liter four-pot with 148-horsepower and 131 lb-ft of torque found in the sedan and hatchback models of the Elantra series.
Power is transferred to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic that returns an estimated 28 mpg city and 39 mpg highway, or a 6sp manual gearbox delivering 29 mpg city and 40 mpg highway. The new Elantra Coupe will arrive in U.S. dealerships later this year.
