I was wondering the same thing
Bob Jones Feb 08, 2012
Why's the coupe longer than the sedan?
Description: The Elantra coupe also takes the sedan's engine as well, meaning the 1.8-liter inline-4-cylinder engine carries over. It is rated at 148hp and 131 lb-ft of torque. The 2013 Elantra Coupe practica...

28/39? Better than a kick in the nuts 8-) But really, that's a prettyd decent HP (and more importantly, torque) figure for an engine that size and car that size.

I love my 2013 Elantra stick it's awesome, coupe looks sweet but same specs so no biggie! I don't mind the 4 door makes it easier for my son to get in & out, now bring out turbo E in 4 door model!

Korean heritage really shows on these. Not a good thing
Matt Piccolo Feb 08, 2012
I agree... Copy of the civic much!!!
Simon Trépanier Feb 08, 2012
The 5 doors hatch will be avaiable too?
Matt Piccolo Feb 08, 2012
Theirs no way this wouldn't b boring
Cho Dan Feb 08, 2012
Slam it, stretch it, put the engine in the back, slap a Lamborghini badge on it and raise the price to 300 grand so all these idiots won't think it's so boring. It's a freakin KIA people!
Matt Piccolo Feb 08, 2012
Theirs absouloutley nothing different from the sedan except theirs 2 doors... BORING... I'll take a civic coupe
Josiah Thomas Clements Feb 08, 2012
I mean the roofline is boring... The window lines could use some spicing up too...
Jason Dannheim Feb 08, 2012
I'm guessing they drew inspiration from The Dark Knight when designing the front end. "Why so serious?"
Brent Cairns Feb 08, 2012
what's the difference?
Mike Botté Feb 08, 2012
Boring? Are you serious. And the civic is exciting?
Josiah Thomas Clements Feb 08, 2012
It looks boring... It doesnt have any wow factor... Just like the 2012 civic coupe. Boring to look at IMO
Knox Ferraro Feb 08, 2012
Well hell, I'll be the first to say I like it.
Raymond Reynoso Feb 08, 2012
It's a Hyundai that's what it is
Matt Piccolo Feb 08, 2012
I agree, theirs something about it that I absolutely hate!
Vince DeMasi Feb 08, 2012
I can't get into the front of that car it looks like a goblin or something
Kyle McCullough Feb 08, 2012
A bit awkward, but it should make a nice, stylish first car.
Justin ChalkChalk Smalyinator Feb 08, 2012
I like the four door. These not as much. The roof needs two inches taken out down the center and the sides pushed in.
Matt Piccolo Feb 08, 2012
Looks EXACLY like the 4 door :( and I hate the 4 door, its just trying to hard! It looks horrible
Mike Conrad Feb 09, 2012
Not aggressive enough for a coupe.
Tyler Murphy Feb 08, 2012
Looks better then the wheel arches of an eclipse which are to big. It just takes less to fill the space this way.
Matt Piccolo Feb 08, 2012
I agree As well... Typical hyundai though lmao!!!
Darius Glover Feb 08, 2012
This side profile does look awkward
Tom Mcleod Feb 08, 2012
I will always hate how some cars (traditionally Hyundai) construct a car where the wheels look to small fr the car.. The wheel arches are so low and makes the whole thing look so awkward. Anti aggressive.
Phillip Peterson Aug 25, 2012
Love how they added the rear diffuser as a lot of us Elantra owner myself included are buying them since they're not included, just adds a little sportiness to it! They are amazing little cars and they sell like crazy!
Jake Knickmeyer Feb 08, 2012
@jason if you read the article, a 6 speed manual is also available.
Jason Dannheim Feb 08, 2012
No 6-speed? It is a coupe after all.
Knox Ferraro Feb 08, 2012
Justin, it helps you to not overshoot a gear like you're bound to do if all you have to do is pull back. It quickly becomes a fluid motion.
Justin ChalkChalk Smalyinator Feb 08, 2012
Dont mind the interior. Looks alittle cramped. Cant stand the auto shifters these days, need to move 4-5 directions to drive forward.
Matt Piccolo Feb 08, 2012
Horrible interior too
Phillip Peterson Aug 25, 2012
It's true they've actually came a long way in a relatively short time, my step mom had the Accent back in i think 2000 brand new 60,000kms it was burning oil running like shit no power but still a gas miser! Still gas miser but looks 100% nicer!
Jake Knickmeyer Feb 08, 2012
No, Caleb, it isn't crap. It's boring but Hyundai makes some damn good cars nowadays.
