2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe: First Impression– What do you think if the Elantra nameplate gets more attention from the manufacturer? Right now we are going to share the first impression of the new car series. We are very pleased that Hyundai find the right time to expand its cars. And now is the Elantra’s turn to satisfy consumers. The car will compete with other compact cars. Let’s start this 2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe review.
Firstly, you need to know that it is a five-door car. In 2011, the car sales recorded a hit in Canada. It was in the second position as the top-selling cars in the country. And in the first position is the Honda Civic. Many people suspect that Hyundai gives their best efforts for the 2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe. It’s nothing but to compete with its Japanese rivals. It has sold more than 6 thousand units. Rumors say that the Elantra doesn’t want to catch up to the Civic. That’s because the sales gap is quite significant. It’ the Alabama plant where the car is being produced. Other news said that the GT and coupe versions will be heading to the Hyundai’s plant in Korea for production. Many people seem very interested in the car.

We are sure you are also interested in the 2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe. It’s said to target those who are looking for cars with a sportier look than most sedans out today. But, another requirement is that the car should not be as dynamic as the Genesis coupe. Although the car will give a new color to the auto industry, but the sales are expected to be moderate. If you want to look for another alternative instead of the five-door model, Hyudai said that 5% of the total production will be the 2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe with 2 doors.
What we know is the coupe and sedan versions are mechanically similar. On both models, you’ll find a 1.8 L four that is capable of producing 148 horsepower and 131 lb-ft. While they share similarities in terms of the machine, you can choose your car to come with either 6-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual. Another interesting offering is the hydraulic power steering. Another thing that could be considered is the coupe has quicker steering ratios. Not just that, the car also will benefit from modified dampers. If you have a plan to buy a coupe, the engine is very crucial to consider. So does the 1.8 L engine do the car any favor? We think that the car is not too nimble as compared to the Veloster. But the car isn’t designed like it though, so it’s forgiven. Additionally you need to make constant corrections while driving the car because you will feel a little numbness in the steering.
That was the 2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe first impression.
