2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe pricing starts at $18,220
The 2013 Hyundai Elantra will be offered in two trimlines when it hits dealerships around the US later this month, the entry level GS and the sportier SE.
The 2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe GS comes with a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission and while Hyundai’s press release announcing the pricing of the Coupe doesn’t mention power output – it does claim that the Elantra Coupe will offer at least 40 miles per gallon when fitted with the manual transmission. Based on the power output of the 2013 Elantra sedan which features the same 1.8L engine, we can expect ratings to be around 148 horsepower/ 131lb-ft of torque and thanks to the lighter structure of the Elantra Coupe, perhaps the 2-door model will exceed the 40 miles per gallon fuel economy ratings forecasted for the new model. Surprisingly, the release does not mention that the Elantra Coupe SE (with the same 1.8L engine and transmission options) will top the 40mpg mark so perhaps the added weight and extra goodies will raise the weight enough to impact the fuel economy figures negatively.
