The Hyundai Elantra loses two doors

Hyundai has unveiled the all new Elantra Coupe at the 2012 Chicago Autoshow. Basically an Elantra sedan minus away two doors, Hyundai hopes to attract younger buyers who want a sporty car and at the same time do not wish to burn a hole in the wallet. The formula was proven to be highly successful in the Kia Koup, which is a two door version of the Kia Forte sedan.

The Elantra Coupe is powered by the same 1.8-liter Nu four-cylinder engine with 148 hp and 131 lb-ft of torque found in the Elantra sedan. The carís fuel economy is estimated at 28 mpg city, 39 mpg highway for the six-speed automatic model. 148 hp from a 1.8L does not sound like very much these days. Hyundai should equip the car with their latest 1.6 T-GDI engine which is good for 204 hp. Mate it to Hyundaiís dual-clutch transmission to deliver that knockout punch to its competitors such as the Honda Civic Coupe.

Hyundai does not skim on safety features for the new Elantra Coupe. It gets equipped with six airbags, Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) and Electronic Stability Control (ESC). Interior features include push-button start, dual automatic temperature control with Clean Air Ionizer and a Navigation with high-resolution 7.0-inch screen.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
