Engine & Performance

In order to keep up with consumer demand and needs, Hyundai drastically improved the specs on their Elantra Coupe. While it no longer has a manual transmission, it does have significant improvements.

The Elantra coupe comes with a 1.8 liter, four cylinder engine that gives you 173 horsepower and 154 lbs.-ft. of torque at 4,700 rpm. It is fuel efficient and is a great choice for those looking for an economical yet sporty coupe.

The previous Elantra Coupe engine did not have a GDI engine (which is a direct gasoline injection engine). This lowered its horsepower by a staggering 25 hp, meaning that the 2014 model is has a 17% HP increase!

Another aspect worth noting in the new Elantra Coupe is the suspension, which is necessary for drivers to have a more stable turning experience especially with the increased horsepower.


The Coupe is equipped with a sporty looking rear spoiler, 17 inch alloy wheels, and a new front grill in black with chrome edging. The lines and design of the new Elantra Coupe make it look sexy and sleek; while the interior gives it the sporty feel that driver’s desire.


With controls around the steering wheel, an all black interior, a navigation system installed into the front console, the new Elantra Coupe is a vast improvement from previous years.
