Hyundai Motor America spokesman Jim Trainor has confirmed the Elantra Coupe is being dropped in the United States.

Speaking to Edmunds, Trainor said the model is being discontinued so the company can "focus on Elantra sedan and Elantra GT."

While it's sad to see the model go, the Kia Forte Koup has been given a reprieve and will stick around for at least another year.

As a refresher, the Elantra Coupe was billed as a "fun-to-drive" model that featured a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that developed 173 bhp (129 kW) and 154 lb-ft (208 Nm) of torque.
