If your talking about the 2001 Elantra then yes they do both share the same 105 bhp Alpha engine. The last generation 1.6 Elantra/Lantra had the Beta unit under the bonnet, which produced 112 Bhp. Not sure why they decided to "downgrade" the engine in the current car???

Don't know about the US spec Elantra's but elsewhere get a choice of 1.6 alpha or 2.0 Beta.

...and what's new in the 2002 elantra GT? (which are, i hate to say, butt friggin ugly)
I thought it was the 2.0L too....different output? Would it fit in the accent like the tib 2 litre? Which brings up another topic. Has anyone actually completed the 2 litre engine swap to an accent? I hear talk, but no finished product yet....

Just wonderin...

I think I can help out on this one.

Goto :
http://www.hyundai-car.co.uk/frameset.html

And lookup the specs on the Tiburon. And then goto:

http://www.hyundaicanada.com

And look up the Specs on the Accent GSi.

I believe that since the power output of the Base Tiburon 1.6 in UK is very close to that of the GSi, that they are the same engines. Basically the GSi in Canada has the base motor for the Tiburon in UK. And in UK for the Accent you can only get the 1.5DOHC as the top engine, the same as the 96-97 Accent GT sold here.

So the engines are not related as the 1.6 used in the Early Elantras sold here was a Mitsu motor and the 1.6 in the Accent GSi and GL (2001 + models) is a Hyundai engine.

And besides, if you look at the torque ratings, the torque is produced MUCH lower on the scale (3000 vs. 4500) which means better off the line acceleration even if the overall Horsepower rating goes down a bit.

Ok, the Accent has NEVER had a Beta engine in it. The Canadian Accent GSi has the same 1.6L DOHC Alpha III motor as the Accent GS has here in the states.

As for the 1.6L Elantra, I'm not sure about the 2001, but the 96-2000 Elantra (and Tib) had the 1.6L Beta as an option.

I just checked out the UK site, and the 2001 Elantra has the 1.6L Beta. Most likely the 2G Beta that the Elantra GT has.

NO IT DOESN'T!!! it has alpha as of 2001.

And as for the Coupe it doesn't have the same engine as the accent!!, it has the same Beta motor as used in the lantra producing 112bhp. 2001 1.6 Elantra's here in the UK use alpha producing 106bhp.

Pony, the Elantra 1.6L (Beta) and the Accent 1.6L (Alpha) has two complete different torque outputs, AND two completely different bore and stroke. Explain that to me if it's the same engine. <img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle>

uh if i were you i wouldnt push it pony, rob is accent man. what i seriously think is WEIRD! is a 1.6L in the 2001? GD. my lantra 1997 has the 1.8l, but you said that the 1.6 lit was optional.... but who would want that instead of the 1.8 or 2.0?

Silly Ricer, Hondas are for kids!

So basically Hyundai makes 2 totally different 1.6l engines. That is the part that I did not understand but I guess that is the case.

We don't get the 1.8, only the 1.6 or 2.0 in the UK.
The main reason people choose the smaller engine is because of petrol prices over here (about 79p a litre!!). Also the cost of the car is less.
Same is true of the accent of which most people opt for the 1.3 litre engine.
Though strangely enough the majority of Coupe's bought are 2.0 litre models rather than the underpowered 1.6.

According to hmaservice.com.

Elantra 1.6L
(R 1.6L)
Bore: 82.3mm (3.240")
Stroke: 75.5mm (2.953")
Displacement: 1595cc (97.3cu in.)
Compresstion: 9.2

Accent 1.6L
(C 1.6L)
Bore: 76.5mm (3.0118")
Stroke: 87mm (3.4252")
Displacement: 1599cc (97.54 cu. in.)
Compression: 10

<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle> By the looks of it, the newer 1.6L is bigger than the older one. Internal parts of the engine will not work.

If you want more information of the engines, I would recommend the webpage listed above.

Actuaally, the 1.6L was the first engine in the first Elantra. Then in 1993, the 1796cc(1.8L) came out as an option. When the new body style came out in 1996, the 1.6L was dropped and the 1.8L and 2.0L went on in the Elantra. The 1997 Tiburon was the only Tiburon available in the US with the 1.8L. After 1997, all Tiburons came with the beta 2.0L.

Specifications are different depending on where abouts in the world you are. With regards to the US I'm sure your right.
