The 2013 Hyundai Elantra GLS Sedan has gotten a price hike of $1,350 over the base 2012 Elantra sedan, starting at 17,470 USD, including the $775 destination charge.
The price hike is justified because the South Korean based automaker is saying that the 2013 Hyundai Elantra GLS Sedan is now coming in standard with more standard features, such as air conditioning, cruise control, telescopic steering wheel, solar glass with windshield shade band and more. We must take for granted what the Asian company is saying because the configurator of the 2013 Hyundai Elantra GLS Sedan hasn’t been launched yet.
The updated Hyundai Elantra GLS Sedan is more expensive than its competition, with the 2012 Honda Civic DX sedan starting at 16,745 USD including a destination charge, the 2012 Nissan Sentra costing 17,210 USD including a 780 USD destination charge and the Ford Focus Sedan, which starts at 17,295 USD including a destination charge, but the model is also cheaper than the base 2012 Chevrolet Cruze, which can be bought from 17,595 USD including a $795 destination charge. As a quick reminder, the 2012 Hyundai Elantra sedan has been named the North American Car of the Year. More details about the 2013 model year will be announced once the configurator will be launched.
