2018 Hyundai Elantra GT reviews
July 31 2017,
The review are out, and the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT has managed to impress more than one automotive expert. Starting at just $20,440, the new 2018 Elantra GT joins the market a year and a half after the sedan which has already become one of the best-selling vehicles in Canada.
The hatchback GT, on the other hand, is designed as the more versatility trim, albeit with a sportier design, and sharper dynamics. The GT is for buyers who want additional space and yet still want to have fun behind the wheel.
Let’s have a look at what the experts are saying about the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT!
Looking similar in front to the smart, new Elantra Sedan, the GT isn’t, however, just a hatchback version of the sedan with a fifth door slapped on the back: The GT gets a unique engine, individual wheelbase for a sportier ride, and an interior that’s more advanced than the sedan, complete with standard eight-inch colour touchscreen.
Now in its fourth generation after the debut of the first Elantra GT in 2001, the GT’s design gives it a clear identity with no awkwardness of before. Short overhangs in front and rear, an integrated rear spoiler and wraparound rear glass with dual exhaust on Sport models, the GT is now as sophisticated as (and maybe even more so than) its direct competitors — the Honda Civic, VW Golf, Mazda3 or Ford Focus. There’s a shark-like resemblance to it. Only the high mount reflectors look misplaced, but they’ll probably not look so unusual over time. Driving.ca
The sporty 2018 Elantra GT hatchback comes equipped with a 162-hp, 150-lb-ft of torque 2.0-liter I-4 that comes mated to a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. The GT Sport hatchback and Sport sedan are powered by a more powerful 201-hp, 195-lb-ft of torque 1.6-liter turbo-four that comes mated to a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission – MotorTrend
The Elantra GT’s steering is light, but precise, and the hatchback feels planted—albeit a little heavy—in cornering. These are mostly good things, and the comparison to a Volkswagen GTI is a fair one to make – The Car Connection
