Warren Brown Warren Brown 7.3 out of 10 2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe

The 2013 Hyundai Elantra coupe is a stylish, excellently crafted, fun-to-drive coupe that is easy to maintain and fuel, with one of the best new-car warranties in the business. All of this in an ‘economy’ car that is better designed and better equipped than many more expensive rivals.

If you like snappy styling, efficiency, and value-packed pricing, the GT adds an element to the Elantra lineup that was previously missing: hatchback practicality and a dash of European flair.

Lawrence Ulrich Lawrence Ulrich 7.3 out of 10 2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe

The Elantra coupe states its claims in looks, comfort, efficiency and value. Flipping the usual script, though, the Elantra sedan actually seems more dramatic and different than this two-door.

The Elantra GT is for real human beings who want nothing to do with the Mazda 3’s busy ride. The Elantra GT doesn’t offer the steering feel, control, precision or fun factor of its main rivals and that’s OK. In other words, this car is a highway commuter’s dream.
