Benefits of Driving a 2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe Coupe
The Elantra is Hyundai's entry into the compact car market, competing with household names such as the Honda Civic and the Toyota Corolla. It is a competitive segment, but Hyundai hopes its standout styling, high level of equipment and outstanding warranty are enough to convince buyers that the Elantra is the car to have. Starting at $16,695, the Elantra has plenty of standard features and even manages to top 38 mpg on the highway, while offering much more than just basic transportation.
What's new for 2013?
The Hyundai Elantra was given a complete redesign in 2011 and reintroduced to the American market as a 4-door sedan. For 2013 Hyundai has expanded the Elantra lineup to include a coupe and a hatchback. The hatchback, dubbed Elantra GT, has five doors, while the coupe is a 2-door with a traditional trunk. The sedan also receives minor trim updates, bumping up equipment levels on the more economical trims.
- well-equipped and available in a variety of body styles.
The sedan version of the 2013 Elantra continues to offer premium style and features at an economy car price point. Available in two trims, GLS and Limited, the Elantra packs a lot of car into a relatively small package. The GLS is the more basic of the two trims but still includes many uncommon features for a car at this price point, such as an iPod-ready 6-speaker stereo, heated mirrors and a tilting and telescoping steering column. Adding the Preferred Package to an automatic-equipped GLS Elantra will further increase equipment levels by adding steering wheel-mounted audio controls, heated front seats, fog lights, 16-inch alloy wheels and Bluetooth connectivity.
