Official: 2013 Elantra GT 5-door prices, release date
Consumer buzz has been building about the impending release of the 2013 Elantra GT, and it got a little louder today when Hyundai announced that the starting price will be $18,395.
The all-new 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT 5-door hatchback will arrive in dealerships later this month and will feature a 1.8L four-cylinder engine and 6-speed manual transmission or an automatic for and extra $1,000.
The 2013 Elantra GT comes with a number of great features and follows the Fluidic Sculpture design concept that Hyundai are now using on all their cars.
That design begins in the front with a hexagonal grille and then flows along the body with sleek character lines. The 2013 Elantra GT is the lightest 5-door hatchback in the compact segment, yet still packs a punch with 148 HP.
It also has more passenger and cargo space than its competitors whilst also having the standard Hyundai safety features. One new addition in that department is the driver knee airbag.
Fuel efficiency is once again at the top of the Hyundai checklist, with the Elantra GT delivering an impressive 39 mpg highway.
The seating layouts in the 2013 Elantra GT allow for greater flexibility. It can comfortably seat 5 adults, but the seating can also be configured so that such lengthy items as golf clubs or skis can easily be accommodated.
The rear seats can all be folded down to give greater cargo space than other vehicles in this category, such as the Toyota Matrix, Mazda 3, Ford Focus, and the Nissan Juke crossover.
The compact segment is seeing increased sales as consumers downsize due to rising gas prices.
The 2013 Elantra GT caters to those buyer by providing premium features such as leather seats, proximity key with push button start, auto defog system, and much more.
There are 3 versions of the Elantra GT available, each with their own set of standard features, and all three can be upgraded with a Style package that comes with a panoramic sunroof and upgraded wheels. Buyers can also add a Tech package that includes a navigation system and much more.
Drivers will love the new driver selectable steering mode which allows them to choose between comfort, normal and sport.
These preferences allow the driver to change the steering characteristics to suit the way that they drive, as well as to suit road conditions and other exterior factors.
Comfort is perfectly suited for city driving, sport is best used in high-speed highways or winding roads, and normal can be used in a number of different driving conditions.
