The European influenced 2018 Elantra GT provides a viable alternative to small CUVs for buyers desiring more fun-to-drive characteristics and greater utility at a starting price of $20,449. Utility without sacrificing driving dynamics is one of the key benefits to hatchbacks, and the 2018 Elantra GT brings an 8 percent increase in cargo capacity versus the prior generation. It is one of only a few hatchbacks classified by the EPA as a Large Car due to total interior volume eclipsing 120 cubic feet. In fact, Elantra GT has more cargo volume than other hatchbacks such as the Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus, Mazda3, Volkswagen Golf and Toyota Corolla iM. Elantra GT is also a sporty alternative to small CUVs. Elantra GT with the rear seats folded down has more cargo capacity than the Toyota CH-R, Mazda CX-3, Chevrolet Trax and Jeep Renegade.
All that utility is wrapped in an evolution of the Fluidic Sculpture design language that features Hyundai’s new signature cascading grille, which is flanked by standard LED Daytime Running Lights. To further enhance the front light signature, available LED headlights are utilized for both the low and high beams. The side profile is strongly supported by standard 17-inch alloy wheels and 18-inch alloy wheels on the Sport. At the rear, the liftgate features wraparound glass and a rear spoiler. Available LED taillights and split dual outlet exhaust further support Elantra GT’s fun-to-drive positioning.
The all-new 2018 Elantra GT brings increased utility and enhanced dynamic performance to the growing compact hatchback segment. Elantra GT is poised to compete head-on with hatchback competitors, but also provide a fun-to-drive alternative to small CUVs. Elantra GT truly is the best of both worlds.
