Hyundai Elantra GT

Hyundai is doing quite great with the competitive lineup since its Fluidic Sculpture design language, but when it comes to hatchbacks, the company did not make any progress, but on the contrary. Hyundai is actually now the only one to offer a compact sedan, coupe and hatchback with the 2013 Elantra. We were curious to see how the Elantra GT hatch will will handle a little competition.

The GT is a lot shorter than the sedan, with its overall length reduced by nine inches and even a wheelbase that has been reduced by two inches. It is also marginally wider and two inches taller. Its dimensions make it more attractive and well-proportioned among the three Elantra body styles while providing the added passenger and cargo volume expected from a hatchback. To transfer the output to the wheels, the engineers have offered 17-inch alloy wheels with chrome pockets.

The price for the base Elantra GT was set for less than $20.000, but the tester car that came with both the Style and Tech packages and its prices was established at $25.365. The model no longer has lack of space inside and the rear seat passengers get enough head and legroom and a maximum cargo capacity of 51 cubic feet of cargo. These features put the model between the top of its class. The new Hyundai Elantra GT receives power from a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder unit capable of generating 148 horsepower and 131 lb. ft. of torque. In terms of transmission the only options are a 6-speed automatic or a manual one. When it comes to fuel consumption, the model comes with 27 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway. Well folks, these are the information available on the new model for now.
