Hyundai Elantra Coupe Unveiled For the Global Market in 2013

This is the new Hyundai Elantra Coupe which will be launched in 2013. It is a two-door model based on the popular Elantra sedan. The Hyundai Elantra Coupe takes the “Fluidic Sulpture” language to a new level showing a wedge-like sport coupe silhouette with deeply sculpted surfaces. Under the hood we find the same 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with 148 horsepower and 131 lb-ft of torque found in the sedan and mated to a six-speed manual transmission. As expected, an automatic transmission with Shiftronic manual control is available as an option. The six-speed automatic is 11 pounds lighter than Hyundai’s previous 5-speed. It is considerably simpler, having 62 fewer parts, for greater durability, lighter weight and lower cost.

The Elantra Coupe is expected to deliver a fuel economy of 29 mpg city, 40 mpg highway for the six-speed manual transmission, and 28 mpg city, 39 mpg highway for the six-speed automatic transmission. This means that the 2013 Elantra Coupe will be capable to offer a highway-only driving range of up to 500 miles. The Elantra Coupe rides on a 106.3-inch wheelbase, an overall length of 178.7 inches, 69.9-inch width, and 56.5 inch height for uncompromised headroom.

 The 2013 Elantra Coupe will offer seven exterior colors, three of which are unique from Elantra sedan color choices: Monaco White Black Noir Pearl and Volcanic Red. Moreover, two audio systems will be available: a standard 172-watt AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system with six-speakers and iPod/USB/auxiliary input jacks or an optional 360-watt system with external amplifier is optional with the SE Technology package. In addition, a touch-screen navigation is available on SE trim and features a high-resolution 7.0-inch screen and voice-activation by headliner-mounted microphone. Will Hyundai Sime Darby launch this car in Malaysia? We think yes at it could well lead the mid-segment coupe market which is growing.
