The redesigned 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT arrived to a good bit of fanfare — well, as much as a compact hatchback can really get. Today, the Korean hatchback reveals its price tag. Sadly, its price list is missing one big thing.
The Elantra GT and its new look will arrive at dealerships soon — an exact date has yet to be announced. It’ll show up boasting its sharp European styling, 25 cubic feet of cargo room behind the rear seats, LED daytime running lights, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and many more standard features. All these features will come as part of the base Elantra GT, which will start from $19,350 with a six-speed manual transmission or $20,350 with the six-speed automatic.
Moving into the Sport trim, which adds the 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that cranks out 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque, the hatchback will start from $23,250 with the six-speed manual transmission and $24,350 with the seven-speed EcoShift dual-clutch transmission.
Now, I mentioned something missing. Unfortunately, there is no word on an N Performance model, a la the i30 N in Europe. I am still holding out hope that Hyundai will bring the i30 N (the i30 is the same vehicle as the Elantra GT) to the States at some point, but it’s looking unlikely for the 2018 model year.
Stay tuned for updates.
