The Hyundai Elantra has been a staple in the Korean automaker’s lineup since 1990, but the 2013 model year is the debut year for the Elantra Coupe, which adds an element of sportiness to the lineup.
The all-new Elantra Coupe comes in a pair of trim levels: GS and SE. The base GS features high-end amenities like a 172-watt audio system, 16-inch alloy wheels and power windows. The SE brings a little more style and luxury with 17-inch wheels and a partial-leather interior. Both come standard with a 148-horsepower 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine and a six-speed manual transmission. A six-speed automatic transmission is optional. With either transmission, the Elantra Coupe delivers 28 mpg city and 38 mpg highway.
Hyundai offers one option group -- the Technology Package -- that features a navigation system with a 7-inch screen, a rearview camera, a 360-watt audio system with an amplifier, dual-zone climate control, automatic headlights and keyless entry with push-button starting.
The GS includes standard: power side-view mirrors; fog lamps; 16-inch alloy wheels; air conditioning; power windows and door locks; a six-speaker 172-watt audio system with AM/FM/CD/MP3/SiriusXM capabilities and an iPod input; and Bluetooth connectivity.
The SE adds: turn-signal indicators on the side-view mirrors; a sunroof; a rear spoiler; 17-inch alloy wheels; a one-touch power driver’s window; leather seating; and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter knob.
