In the U.S. market, the Elantra is Hyundai’s bestselling nameplate and through August sales were up 10% to 173,238 units. Hyundai wants to be seen as providing quality and handling, which is why they have refined the ride.

Other upgrades will include a hands-free auto-opening trunk and rear cross-traffic alert.

The 2013 Hyundai Elantra coupe is basically the same as the older Elantra sedan models, except with two fewer doors. The front fascia has also been tweaked to allow it to stand out from the sedans. The Hyundai styling and wedge-like profile looks far more stylish and sporty on the coupe as opposed to the sedan. The lower rear diffuser is also black to make it stand out but even the most conservative buyers will think it adds value to the overall design. The sedan and the coupe version of the Elantra have the same wheelbase and height, the only exterior size difference is that the coupe is 0.4 inches longer than the sedan. With such close dimensions the coupe is exceptionally spacious and beats out most of the competition for cargo space.
Under the hood consumers will get a 148-hp, 1.8-liter inline four-cylinder engine that produces 131 lb-ft of torque. An automatic transmission comes standard but there is also the option of a six-speed manual transmission both produce about the same fuel economy of 28 mpg city/ 39 highway.

Hyundai has also released the Elantra GT, formerly known as the Elantra Touring, this version of the Elantra is a hatchback. Outside of the name change, the second-generation Elantra GT will have more occupant space as well as more cargo room than all of the five-door competitors in its category. Despite the spacious interior the newer GT is shorter in length and height and rides on a shorter wheelbase, but is slightly wider. The styling allows the GT to fit right in with the rest of the Hyundai line-up and is more attractive than previous models.
The U.S version of the GT differs slightly from the European version and uses the same engine as the Elantra sedan; a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 148 hp and 131 lb-ft of torque. As with the coupe version, the GT comes standard with an automatic transmission but a manual is available as an option and both produce similar fuel efficiency with 28 city mpg and 39 highway. The fuel efficiency for the updated GT is much higher than the previous Elantra Touring’s numbers.
“The new Hyundai GT is sportier than the sedan and is much more enthusiast focused” says David Hupart, Sales Director of Chapman Hyundai, he also adds “The new GT improves upon the Touring’s dynamics and is a great value per dollar”.
In which he may be referring to the added features such as electric power-steering system and driver selectable modes that provide variable assist and build-up characteristics. The GT also comes standard with a six-speaker stereo with iPod and Bluetooth connectivity, power everything, and Hyundai’s Blue Link telematics system. Optional upgrades include leather interior, panoramic sunroof, and navigation.
