First Drive: 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT

A European spin on a popular Korean compact.

The 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT.

After scoring a hit with its latest compact sedan, the Elantra, Hyundai is aiming to broaden the nameplate’s appeal with two spin-offs, the Elantra Turbo and the even sportier Elantra GT.

The maker has good reason to want to expand the line-up, considering Elantra’s success in the U.S. market.  The base car won the coveted North American Car of the Year award, last January, and Hyundai has ever since been struggling to meet demand. If anything, the 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT could put the model in even shorter supply.

The GT is more than just a tarted-up version of the current Hyundai Elantra sedan. It features a distinctive hatchback body originally developed for Europe, where it is sold as the i30.  The version we’ll get here is largely the same motorists can buy in London or Berlin – though Hyundai has softened the suspension a bit for American tastes.

First Look: Hyundai Elantra GT and Elantra Coupe

If they come, can you build them?

The new 2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe with the already wildly popular Elantra sedan.

What do you do when you’re already short of cars to sell – as is the enviable problem faced by Hyundai with the compact Elantra model? How about adding a couple new variants likely to stimulate even more demand.

The Korean carmaker is clearly on a roll, with sales setting yet another new record for 2011, largely driven by demand for the Elantra, the original version of the sedan winning the North American Car of the Year trophy just last month.

News Now!

Now, the maker is offering potential buyers even more options, adding both a new Elantra Coupe and a sporty 5-door Elantra GT model for 2013. That will have Hyundai offering more distinct variants of the popular Elantra line than any competitor in the compact segment.
