Is the motor that is coming in the 2012 Elantra Coupe the same 2.4L 6 speed automatic found in the 2012 Sonata as well?

Curb Weight (lbs) 3161
City (MPG) 24
Hwy (MPG) 35
Horsepower [email protected]
Torque (lb-ft) [email protected]

Those are the numbers from the 2012 Sonata

I haven't looked into it but I don't see why not, it wouldn't make sense for a manufacture to develop two engines that have the same liter rating. Never seen this happen, ever....not with Hyundai and not with any other brand.

^ agree. doesn't make any sense at all to have 2 engines that are identical. More than likely it's the same engine.

a lot of car makers use specific engines in a few or more of their vehicles. saves R&D money!

I just have to say it but this elantra 2.4L will be flying! Isn't that a lot of displacement for such a car. For some reason I though the max was going to be a 2.0L
