The 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT has just been unveiled at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, with a firm on-sale date set for this summer. That’s likely to have set hearts racing across the automotive community! With its blend of vibrant power and first-class features, the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT has been hotly anticipated since we first heard it was making its way to America.

Refreshed Design

The 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT has certainly evolved in terms of looks and design. Starting with a long and tapered front end that’s accented by a textured hexagonal grille and slender headlights, the vehicle adopts sleek lines to produce a sporty and engaging appearance. A longer hood and more rounded front-end provide a dramatic stance, and these design choices also help boost interior space. The latest iteration of the Hyundai Elantra GT will offer more passenger space than the previous generation, plus up to 55.1 cubic feet of storage space – far more than what’s available inside the Civic Hatchback or Cruze Hatchback.

Exquisite Elantra GT Power

Hatchbacks tick the practicality box by offering a large, versatile cargo area within a compact package. Lately, they’ve also begun to push performance further. That’s certainly a goal of the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT, which offers a 162-hp 2.0L naturally-aspirated four-cylinder or a 201-hp 1.6L turbocharged four-cylinder. For more refined output, the Elantra GT looks to a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Multi-link rear suspension is available to help elevate handling and tighten steering.

Thrilling Technology Features

The 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT isn’t short on power, and it certainly isn’t short on technology. The interior boasts an 8-inch touchscreen as standard with optional navigation, and its cool new floating screen strikes a sophisticated appearance.

Further comfort and convenience features include:

  • Dual-zone climate control

  • Apple CarPlay or Android Auto

  • Wireless phone charging

  • Amazon’s Alexa voice-controlled assistant

You’ll even be able to take advantage of advanced driver assistance technologies, including adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and blind spot detection with rear cross traffic alert.

The 2018 Elantra GT is Set to Become America’s Hottest Hatchback
