What Is The Cost Of 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT?
Hyundai have a hit on their hands in Europe with the sporty i30 hatchback, and they will he hoping to have the same level of success with the US-spec version, which is known as the 2018 Elantra GT.
That model was introduced to the US in February, and according to Hyundai Motor America, it is now available for purchase with a starting price of $19,350, plus an $885 destination fee.
That starting price of the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT is all the more impressive when you consider that it comes with standard features that other automakers would charge extra for as options.
Let’s start with the engine, which is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder that delivers 161-hp and 150-lb.-ft. of torque.
It comes mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, but you can upgrade to the Shiftronic automatic for an extra $1,000.
The very sporty looking vertical LED daytime running lights come as standard, as does the 8-inch infotainment system that comes complete with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration.
Oher standard features that you will find include rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a host of driving aids.
If you are looking for the multi-link rear suspension set-up, you are going to need to go with the Elantra GT 1.6L Turbo GDI, as it is not available on the 2.0-liter version.
Moving on up to the Elantra GT Sport means going with a starting price of $23,250 for the manual version, while the 7-speed EcoShift transmission adds another $1,100 to the price.
The turbo 4-cylinder may be 0.4-liters less potent, but it delivers an extra boost of torque when compared to the standard engine.
The GT sport is sure to be more appealing to younger drivers because of that extra power, and it also helps that the driving experience is also improved thanks to performance-oriented tires and larger brake rotors.
While the list of standard features on the Hyundai Elantra GT is certainly impressive, you still have a number of additional options available.
These include extras such as electronic parking brake with auto hold, wireless phone charging, 7-speaker Infinity sound system, Blue Link with 3 years of free service, heated and ventilated front seats, and a whole lot more.
You can also add more safety features such as Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
