Default How much does an elantra weigh?

For performance reasons, i would like to see how much a 92-95 Elantra weighs, it doesn't matter what trim style, just a basic weight.

thanks

I weighed my XD and it was 3652 pounds with a 110 pound speaker box and 3 people inside.

I think the weight on the older models are about the same weight.

It is realy hard to compare an XD to a 92-95 Elantra since it was a completely redesigned from the ground up (engine and all).

I would guess the curb weight to be around 2500lbs but different trim levels will effect that too.

There is a replacement for displacement. It is on 2 wheels and 600cc.

Size wise, the XD is slightly bigger than the 92-95's. My neighbor has a 92 Elantra and has parked it beside mine. Mine is a bit bigger. Additionally, I have the leather, which is heavier than cloth.

When I weighed mine, I had about 600 pounds of additional weight (me, 2 friends and my speaker box) added on. If I were to subtract the leather seats and GT suspension components, I might have weighed about another 400-500 pounds less. I calculated this into my estimation.

According to the Auto Consumer Guide (on the net) it weighs 2500 lbs like Auto guessed. By the way, the difference in weight between the cloth XD seats and the leather XD seats is far from significant. Can't be more than a couple pounds each seat, no more than 10-12 lbs total.

Cool.

I've taken my 93 elantra, 4 door, with a 1.8 auto with a half tank of gas and it weighed in at 2550. So, a full tank should be in the 2700 range...

ok...i dont know what kind of gas you are using, but if you weighed in at 2550 with a half tank, there is no way your car will weigh 2700 with a full tank...liquid only weighs 8lbs/gallon...you have what, a 14 gallon tank? 1/2 of that is 7 (7gallons x 8lbs) extra 50 lbs...i hope you meant to put 2600 lbs

too many to list. check out member profile on EXD
