Must not be selling them in my region...here sedans have to outnumber coupes 10:1. It should have another name - I don't believe the cheaper and non luxurious coupe is on the same footing as the posher sedan - and the big mouth bass theme from the hybrid Sonata isn't pretty either. I think Schreyer is on loan from Kia. The weird beltline has aged fine anyway.

Elantra offers so much car for so little money. Stylish. Roomy. Inexpensive. Well equipped. Great warranty. Good fuel economy. Hyundai helped by Honda, Toyota, and Nissan playing it safe and boring for past few years. But Hyundai will have to work even harder in future as Detroit finally waking up in this market.

I swear they said they were gonna have a Elantra Coupe at the Detroit Auto Show. The new Genesis was introduced in LA , and they even had spy shots of the new coupe an stated it would be in Detroit. Any one else heard that. Also, I noticed that Motor Trend hasn't said a word about about the Elantra being voted the NACOTY. Guess their kinda biased, seeing they chose the VW Passet.

"By moving upscale with its product line, CNW mentioned Hyundai has seen the age of primary drivers climb 12.6 percent — “on purpose,” according to Spinella.
Now at 42.4 years, “it remains among the youngest brands, but is now in the demographic sweet spot,” he added."

"Despite Hyundai's turnaround, Krafcik still worries about quality.
"It only takes one small mistake with a critical part in a safety-related system to derail all of the good work that we've done," he says."
