Would you like your Elantra with 2, 4 or 5 doors?

The Hyundai Elantra was redesigned completely for the 2011 model year, and it found success with consumers looking for great features and economy at a value price. For 2013, Hyundai built on that success with a pair of new Elantra variants -- a coupe and a 5-door hatchback, the GT. Throw in the Elantra's unexpectedly large-feeling interior and Hyundai's 10-year/100,000-mile warranty, and there's a lot in it to draw eyes away from competitors in the compact car segment.

A Commuter Car with Kick

The 2013 Hyundai Elantra offers a happy medium between the sportier and the softer cars in its segment, with the GT model offering some unexpected fun. From our review: "Bland it is not... the GT hatchback benefits greatly from Hyundai's first application of a 3-mode driver-selectable steering adjustment. GT models also feature a sport-tuned suspension that makes the car surprisingly fun to drive on twisty roads. In everyday driving the cabin is well-insulated from wind and road noise, and the front seats are comfortable for this class of car." Read our 2013 Hyundai Elantra full review.


Build and Price

The 2013 Hyundai Elantra sedan has an MSRP starting at just under $17,500, with the Coupe starting at just over $18,000, while the GT hatchback is just over $19,000. Adding an automatic transmission to any version costs an extra $1,000, and fully-optioned models of the Elantra can reach around $25,000.

New for 2013

Additions to the Elantra lineup for 2013 include the Coupe and GT models. The 2013 Elantra GT also has a sport tuned suspension and heft-selectable steering. All 2013 Elantras are powered by the same 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, good for 148 horsepower and 131 lb-ft of torque.

What Owners Say visitor Rob S has high praise for the 2013 Hyundai Elantra: "I absolutely love this car. I am a tall man, but I can get into, out of, and ride comfortably. I've been getting 42+ mpg. I get constant compliments on the way it looks. It handles beautifully and I feel very safe driving it. Visibility is very important to me and this vehicle has great visibility."

Other Compact Cars

It can be hard to narrow down choices in a segment as competitive as compact cars. The Hyundai Elantra has a lot to offer, but vehicles like the Honda Civic, Ford Focus, and Mazda3 have longer histories and grander reputations with the American buying public.
