Elantra virtues minus two doors


2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe - Instrumented Test

The coupe designation has been blurred by the marketing minions, but we ordinarily understand it to describe a car with two doors and a formal trunk. Beyond that, we tend to perceive coupes as sexier than their sedan equivalents, with a suggestion of more performance.
The sexier part of this perception is true of the 2013 Hyundai Elantra coupe. Its four-door sibling is already one of the more eye-catching members of the compact crowd, and subtracting a set of doors adds a little more visual zing to the package. But if you expect a corresponding increase in dynamic zing, you’re likely to be disappointed.

Subtracting a set of doors can be an oversimplification, but not in this case. The exterior dimensions of the two- and four-door versions of the Elantra are essentially identical—wheelbase, width, and height.
