2013 Hyundai Elantra
2013 Hyundai Elantra

New For 2013

A two-door coupe joins the lineup, and the Touring wagon gives way to the GT hatchback. Lots of features are now standard on the base sedan, including air-conditioning, cruise control, sixteen-inch wheels, and a tilt-and-telescoping steering column. (The car’s base price rises accordingly by $1350.) The sedan’s packages pack more goodies now: the Preferred Package adds heated front seats, and the Limited Technology Package adds dual automatic climate control. Also, Atlantic blue has been added to the list of available colors.


The Elantra plays in a tough category that is traditionally dominated by the likes of the Honda Civic and the Toyota Corolla and has recently been joined by top-notch new models such as the Ford Focus and the Chevrolet Cruze. The Elantra sedan was entirely new for 2011, and a coupe and a hatchback join it for 2013. The snazzy two-door is new to the Elantra lineup, and the sharp GT replaces the fine-driving-but-dowdy Elantra Touring wagon. All these cars are ready to take on the best in their class, but none will particularly scintillate enthusiasts. Distinctive styling is now an Elantra hallmark, but ride quality is merely OK, and excess engine and suspension noises sometimes invade the otherwise pleasant cabin. Every Elantra earns great EPA fuel-economy ratings, although some trim levels of the new body styles come short of the magic 40-mpg highway mark. Fancy features such as a top-notch navigation system, heated leather seats, a sunroof, and a backup camera won’t break the bank. Six air bags, antilock brakes, power windows and locks, tilt-and-telescoping steering, and an iPod-friendly stereo are gimmes these days at Hyundai. A lengthy warranty helps seal the deal in the fight for thrifty buyers’ cash.


Front, side, and side curtain air bags are standard on all Elantras, as are ABS, traction and stability control, and tire-pressure monitors.

2014 Hyunda Avante In Motion
Just because a car is sold throughout the world, it doesn't mean it's offered the same way in every country. An example of this is the 2014 Hyundai Avante, which is essentially the Korean version of the U.S.-spec Elantra. And among the features that will be offered on the Avante -- one that isn't yet confirmed for the 'States -- is a self-parking feature.
2013 Hyundai Elantra GT Front Right Side View
Someone once very astutely remarked to me that "Hyundai is very good at putting shiny things right in front of the customer in the showroom." The new Elantra GT may embody this more than any Hyundai right now. At $22,000 this Elantra GT came with such high-end goodies as heated leather seats, a panoramic glass moonroof, and sleek European-feeling design inside and out. The interior feels especially premium with its piano black trim, cool blue lighting, and dampened buttons.
2013 Hyundai Elantra Right Front
Honda, Hyundai is knocking at your door. March 2013 sales saw a few major changes in the compact segment, with the Hyundai Elantra moving up to third place, right behind the Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic.
2013 Hyundai Sonata Left Side View
In the course of years or even quarters, the fortunes of an automaker can rise and fall relative to the industry overall. Despite record-setting sales in the U.S. and other markets, Hyundai and Kia profits fell short of analysts' expectations for the fourth quarter of 2012, according to reports from Bloomberg and Reuters. Fourth-quarter profits of $1.8 billion were 5.5 lower than the same period last year. Among the major factors affecting profits are the growing strength of the South Korean Won, which makes exports more expensive.
2013 Hyundai I30 Wagon Hotel Hyundai Rear Three Quarter
Imagine your favorite hotel room--what does it have? A nice kitchenette, maybe, or a full-sized shower with beautiful tile? Hyundai's new hotel room has none of those things: it's a specially equipped i30 Wagon, dubbed "the world's first five-star hotel room on wheels."
