Hyundai discontinues the Elantra Coupe, eliminates it from US lineup for 2015

Article by Christian A., on August 14, 2014

The Hyundai Elantra Coupe was introduced in February 2012 but it appears that sales of the vehicle failed to impress the Korean car manufacturer. As a result, the Elantra Coupe was discontinued and eliminated from the US lineup for 2015. According to Jim Trainor, a spokes man for Hyundai Motor America, the manufacturer will now focus on the Elantra Sedan and the Elantra GT.

The good news is that Kia will continue to offer the Forte Koup but for those who want something else, Honda offers the Civic Coupe. Based on the sedan, the Elantra Coupe was offered for 2013-2014 model years and had a starting price of $20,410, including the $810 destination charge.

The model was powered by a 1.8-liter Nu four-cylinder engine that generates 148 hp and 131 lb-ft of torque. Hyundai offered the six-speed manual transmission as standard while the automatic transmission with Shiftronic manual control was available as an option.

With the manual transmission the Elantra Coupe returned 29 mpg city and 40 mpg highway, while the automatic transmission was able to return 28 mpg city and 39 mpg highway. With a fuel tank of gas the highway driving range was up to 500 miles.

Elantra Coupe was available in GS or SE trim, with tilt and telescopic steering wheel, standard heated seats, aluminum pedals and two interior color choices. Moreover, seven exterior colors were offered, but three of these were unique from Elantra sedan color choices: Monaco White Black, Noir Pearl and Volcanic Red.
