Hyundai Canada has released pricing for the all-new 2013 Elantra GT and Coupe, which will soon join the Elantra lineup in Canada.
The Elantra GT, which pairs European style and driving dynamics with a practical new five-door hatchback layout, will have a starting MSRP of $19,149. Prices for the Elantra Coupe, a sleek two-door variant of the award-winning Elantra sedan, start from $19,949.
Standard equipment in both vehicles includes a fuel-efficient 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine with 148 horsepower, a choice of six-speed transmissions, air conditioning, heated front seats, Bluetooth, a six-speaker audio system with iPod/USB/auxiliary connectivity, and much more.
Both the Elantra GT and Elantra Coupe will offer highway fuel economy ratings of 5.0 L/100 km and 4.9 L/100 km, respectively, when equipped with the six-speed manual transmission.
With the addition of these two new models, the Elantra line-up becomes one of the most comprehensive in the compact segment in Canada.
All Elantra GT models feature seven airbags, including one for the driver’s knees, and a Hyundai-first Driver Selectable Steering Mode (DSSM) system.
The uplevel GLS model ($21,349) adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, panoramic sunroof, leather-wrapped steering wheel, fog lamps, 16-inch alloy wheels, and more. A six-speed automatic transmission is available as a $1,200 option on both GL and GLS models.
Next up comes the SE model ($24,349 ), which includes the six-speed automatic transmission as standard equipment and adds leather seating surfaces and door trim, fully automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with Homelink, 17-inch alloy wheels, and mirror-mounted turn signal indicators.
The top-of-the-line SE Tech model ($26,349) features premium amenities such as proximity keyless entry with push-button ignition, 7.0-inch touch-screen navigation, and a back-up camera hidden behind a mechanized Hyundai badge in the trunk lid.
The Elantra Coupe GLS ($19,949) includes such standard features as 16-inch alloy wheels, power sunroof, fog lamps, leather-wrapped steering wheel, front bucket seats with deep side bolsters, and more.
As with other Elantra models, a six-speed automatic transmission is available for $1,200.
The Elantra Coupe SE trim level ($25,199) comes fully-equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, alloy pedals, a sport-tuned suspension and premium content such as leather seating surfaces, proximity keyless entry with push-button ignition, a 7.0-inch touch-screen navigation system with back-up camera, fully automatic climate control, and a 360-watt audio system with external amplifier.
The Elantra GT's styling represents a further evolution of Hyundai’s "Fluidic Sculpture" design language. In addition to providing an attractive silhouette, it gives the coupe a slippery aerodynamic profile with a 0.30 coefficient of drag, which helps reduce fuel consumption.
