In the driveway: 2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe SE

2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe SE - Subcompact Culture

In the driveway this week is Hyundai's 2013 Elantra coupe. As you may know, Hyundai's venerable Elantra is available in sedan, hatchback (in GT trim), and also coupe form. Main competition would include the likes of the Honda Civic coupe, Kia Forte coupe, and Scion tC.

I've had the car for 24 hours, and it feels surprisingly nimble and smooth. Power is decent, and it's quiet at 55 mph. This thing has a huge trunk, too. Rated 27 city, 37 highway, it'll be interesting to see what this 1.8-liter, 145 horsepower engine will in the economy department. Interior is pretty nice, too. I have to say, I think it looks pretty good, especially in red. Stay tuned.
