    Of course it would be RHD capable. But should they bring it?

  • Henry Toussaint

    I acully kinda like it, to bad it wont come here…but like it’s Cerato Koup, it might not sell that well.

  • Blair Waldorf

    Considering the current interest in small coupes, it wouldnt hurt Hyundai to bring it here, even if it doesnt sell that well, it would provide an image boost.

  • Sumpguard

    No surprise they chose this car to do a coupe. It’s the best looking car in their compact range.

  • Robin_Graves

    Wow, looks great as a coup

  • Labryz

    Definitely looks fantastic.
    Hyundai Australia really need to bring this here. As has been said above, even if it’s not a volume seller it will boost their image no end.

  • DAVIDZ

    Gut feeling, $14,990 driveaway

    • TheREALDavidZ

      GO away phony.

    I genuinely don’t like the new Elantra (or any Elantra for that matter) but I have to say it does look better as a coupe, especially with those wheels.

    But Hyundai Australia, focus on the new i30 please, it’s a much nicer car!

  • Gizza

    Designwise, I prefer new Elantra over i30.

    Am I the only person who thinks the normal elentra looks better?..

  • Aus_poppa

    It is interesting that the new I30 is to sell in the USA badged as the Elantra GT, but with the US 1.8 petrol engine, rather than the European petrol and disel power plants. The outgoing I30 wagon was was also sold in the USA as an Elantra.

    The coupe Elantra will probably be made on the same line which makes for the US market, and may not be engineered as RHD.

      Which is the European petrol?

  • DanielR

    If it had a sporty ride that was up with Mazda’s then it would be alright. Problem is it will be like the Kia koup. Look nice but thats about it

  • jk

    I was honestly hoping for aggresive styling and the turbo engine found in the veloster.

    I can’t tell the difference between the sedan and the coup. This could have been a serious competitor.

  • Peanut

    Please bring it here with a turbo charged motor and flared guards with wider rubber.

  • al

    I so don’t like Hyundai’s current trend of curved cars. That is so 10 years behind and was a bad fashion of the automotive industry altogether. Like the yucky A Series Falcons. 
    I wish they brought back the chassis designs of the late sixties and seventies. The most beautiful cars built at that time.

    i30 is the hatchback version of Elantra. Hyundai Australia will not bring it here because they can not ripp us off on this coupe, as Hyundai Australia ripps us off on every car they sell here, even with the 4 speed autos at 2,000.00 extra.
