When it recently made its debut at the Chicago Auto Show, the new 2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupé revealed only subtle changes apart from the obvious two fewer doors to set it apart from the its sedan sibling.
As the sedan already has a coupé-like shape, it was seemingly easy to adapt the design. On the outside the 2-door Elantra’s front fascia has only received minor tweaks to the lower part of the grille and fog lamps while both are almost identical underneath. Both vehicles share the same wheelbase, overall width and height. The only dimensional difference is length, with the coupé being only slightly longer than the sedan. And drivetrains? These are also carried over from the sedan range.
Hyundai also debuted its five-door 2013 Elantra GT alongside the Coupé at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show.
