2018 Hyundai Elantra GT First Look

A new Hyundai Elantra GT arrives at the dealer this spring, promptly with the Chevrolet Cruze hatches and Honda Civic hatches. The model features updated power systems and a new look differentiated from entries in other modern lineups.

Based on the next generation of modern i30, Elantra GT with European design style, modern said. The new model avoids the horizontal-slatted front grating model and uses a completely new cascading grid design. New lights make up a smooth slender, long hood and a short rear excess. General Motors says the Elantra GT is low and wide, surpassing the previous generation.

Again, the Elantra GT will offer a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. But this unit, previously producing 173 horsepower, is now estimated at 162 hp. Six-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmissions are available.


The Elantra GT sports model gets a new 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes with a 6-speed manual or 7-speed dual clutch. In this model, a fully independent multi-link suspension replaces the standard rear torsion beam setting, and an 18-inch alloy wheel 17-inchers alternative standard. The kinematic model also receives larger front and rear brake rotors.

To improve driving dynamics, the Elantra GT is constructed using nearly twice as high strength steel. Modern said the new model is a 22 percent more rigid bodywork form, weighing 61 pounds.

In the Elantra GT, looking for an entirely new infotainment system, Hyundai says it is more sensitive than ever. The screen is no longer embedded in the dashboard but sitting in front and center as a separate unit. The new 8.0-inch screen replaces the previous 7.0-inch unit, supporting the model’s new navigation system maps and traffic data.

Other features include standard CarPlay apples and Android cars as well as available wireless smartphones for charging and double deck climate control. Buyers also have access to the host’s security features, including automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, lane maintenance assistance, blind spot detection, rear cross-traffic alerts and adaptive cruise control stop / start capability. Modern and Climate Control Improves Remote Start Characteristics Now drivers can activate the rear de-icer and heated mirrors before stepping into the car. The driver can order Alexa, a personal assistant at Amazon echo or point, to set the car’s temperature in advance.


Modern said the passenger space should reach 96.5 cubic feet and the cargo volume should be at nearly 25 cubic feet. While the model competes with the compact hatchback, Hyundai expects the EPA to classify the Elantra GT as a large car because of the interior space available.

Earlier this year, Hyundai Motor said it would expand its i30 range to include carriage, a high-performance N-model, and quick return. Time will tell us if the modern will also bring these variants to the US market Elantra GT. But for now, we all know that the Elantra GT has ripened nicely with the rest.
