A reader from Carscoop caught the new 2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe in Fullerton, California. This new pictures of the future 3-door coupe caught close than the Hyundai Motor America Headquarters, gave us to think would make debut at the 2011 LA AutoShow, but finally the korean automaker will be waiting until next February at the 2012 Chicago AutoShow to do the reveal.
You can expect the model to adopt the 1.8 MPi with 148 horsepower engine and six speed automatic gearbox from the Elantra Sedan. Actually, we like dreaming about the 1.6 T-GDi with 208 horsepower, but, for the moment, not confirmed yet.
The Elantra Coupe will also get its own unique SE trim level, which as we know based on Hyundai’s traditional trim designations, is the sporty trim. The company expects the coupe to make up 20 percent of the Elantra’s volume, and its obvious target is the Honda Civic Coupe, as well as the Kia Forte Koup that will share the same basic underpinnings.
