2018 Hyundai Elantra GT is another bright feather in the hatchback segment. With the growing demand for compact hatchback, Hyundai initially pitched the Elantra GT as an alternative to crossover that’s sportier and handles better but truth be told, Elantra GT is a proper hatchback. To make things more interesting, Hyundai had made a six-speed manual transmission standard on all Elantras but fear not, automatic is of course, an option.

Exterior
The European style hatchback is arguably the most stylish exterior Hyundai has ever come up with. The attractive details and crisp, clean lines definitely sets 2018 Hyundai Elantra apart from the crowd. Eighteen-inch wheels complements the larger brakes well and the independent multilink setup replaces the torsion-beam rear suspension. With cascading grille, vertical LED daytime lights and more, the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT is a homerun. With the captivating exterior, 2018 Hyundai Elantra will be a worthy opponent for the likes of Volkswagen Golf, Ford Focus, and Mazda 3.

Interior
The interior is lavish in the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT. The 8.0-inch touchscreen display is the heart of the infotainment system which integrates with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Like most top-tier hatchbacks, Elantra GT offers plenty of cargo room; 25 cubic feet of space to be precise. With rear seat folded, you can enjoy 55 cubic feet of space.

Under the Hood
The 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT comes with a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter, 162-horsepower base engine. The next step up is the 1.6-liter, turbocharged inline-four, at a whopping 201 horses! You can pair both these engines with either a manual or automatic six-speed transmission. All Elantras are front-wheel drive but the handling and grip on the road has been nothing but impressive.

Price
The base price for the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT is going to be around $20,000. Granted this is higher than most Hyundai we have seen but given the quality and craftsmanship of the vehicle, Hyundai shouldn’t have problem justifying the slightly higher price tag. The Sport trim is even pricier, with the base price over $24,000, you can expect to spend few extra grands if you like bells and whistles.
