Hyundai debuts the all-new Elantra GT for 2018. The lower, wider, and longer all-new Elantra GT adds a more aggressive stance and interior volume to its clean European style and driving dynamics.
With the new hatchback shoppers can choose between two models: the efficient, smooth running GT, or the more powerful and fun-to-drive GT Sport.
With clean proportions, flowing character lines, and an attention grabbing new cascading grille design, the new GT imbues class and sophistication. It's posture; lower, wider, and longer; shows the GT means business.
The GT lands where European style meets American can-do attitude and ability, bonded together with just over 367 feet of structural adhesive. This combines to make the Elantra GT, stiffer, stronger, and lighter.
For 2018, there are two engines offered for the Elantra GT. The efficient yet robust 2.0-liter makes 162 horsepower. It mates to either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. Opt for the GT Sport and get the 1.6-liter turbo engine found in the Elantra Sport and enjoy an estimated 201 peak horsepower along with a broad band torque peak of 195 lb.-ft. The six-speed manual is available here too, or an athletic, seven-speed dual-clutch gear box.
The GT Sport rear torsion beam suspension is switched for a fully-independent multilink setup, 18-inch alloy wheels and larger front and rear brake rotors for even more fun when the going gets twisty.
Aside from available appointments inside the Elantra GT -- like leather seats, alloy pedals, and dual-zone climate control -- Hyundai added several new items to keep you comfortable and safe.
For safety, the GT is available with several systems usually found in expensive luxury vehicles, such as Smart Cruise Control with stop/start capability, Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Keep Assist, Attention Assist, High-Beam Assist, and Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-traffic Alert.
