2018 Hyundai Elantra GT-2

Hyundai Motors America announced the MSRP for the new Elantra GT hatchback, known in Europe as the i30. The stylish and well-equipped 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT starts at $19,350 for the base model and $23,250 for the turbo-powered GT Sport model.

The regular 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT is powered by 161 horsepower 2.0L GDI 4-cylinder engine with either a six-speed manual or available six-speed automatic transmission. The GT Sport gets a 201 horsepower 1.6L Turbo GDI mated to a six-speed manual or seven-speed Dual Clutch Transmission with paddle shifters. Both models benefit from multi-link suspension, large brakes and 18 inch wheels, so at least on paper they should be pretty decent to drive.

2018 Hyundai Elantra GT

As promised, Hyundai took to the Chicago Auto Show with a hot new model that is supposed to teach Americans a thing or two about the appeal of busy performance in a small package. The 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT packs 201 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque and can be had with a six-speed manual gearbox.

That is for the GT Sport. You can also get a 162 hp model if you think an extra 40 hp would land you in trouble. But besides the amount of power one can have with one’s 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT, the car offers more sporty goodness in form of aggressive styling with a built in aero kit, lowered ride height and larger wheels than standard models, and a host of comfort and convenience features.

In becoming a sports machine designed mainly for spirited driving 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT has not forgot that it is still very much a Hyundai at heart. So you get a spacious cabin and a list of features that include standard vertical LED daytime running lights, standard eight-inch display audio with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, available dual-zone climate control, high and low beam LED headlights, wireless smartphone charging, Amazon Alexa Blue Link remote starting, and Blue Link heated features.

2018 Hyundai Elantra GT-teaser-1

Continuing their ongoing effort to make various different editions of their best-selling models, Hyundai have announced the launch of a GT version of the Elantra at the upcoming Chicago Auto Show. Boasting many sporty features, the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT complements an expansive range which also includes a Value edition.

There are literally no official details out yet about the specs of the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT, but it is not hard to guess what sort of features one can expect from this car partly because we have GT Hyundais before and partly because they have been generous enough to give us some nice teaser photos. So we know the car has a fairly prominent grille, a lip spoiler up front and, presumably, a boot spoiler out back, and a host of red accents and trims and decorative stitching to go with the whole GT theme.


As for the technical specs, chances are the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT will get an iteration of the firm’s 1.6 turbo engine, although a 2.0 liter turbo could also be a candidate. Toughened up suspension, larger wheels and tires, and beefier brakes could be among the other technical highlights of the GT Elantra.
