2018 Hyundai Elantra GT

2018 Hyundai Elantra GT

If you're looking for more cargo and interior space--and, quite frankly, swagger--than the standard four-door sedan can offer, take a look at a hatchback like the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT.

Why Buy the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT?

The Elantra GT is the hatchback version of the four-door Hyundai Elantra, and quite simply the reason to choose the GT over the standard Elantra is all about the design. Hatchback designs give you more cargo space and interior space because of the change in the design of the back. The Elantra GT doesn't messa round--it actually has more cargo space than the hatchback versions of the Chevrolet Cruze, Honda Civic, Mazda3, and Ford Focus to name just a few. The GT design also looks sportier and less family car-like than the sedan.

The Elantra GT is also packed with technology features, like Bluetooth and Apple Car Play, as well as active safety features. If you're still not sure about whether or not the Hyundai is for you, the Elantra GT comes with America's Best Warranty. The bumper-to-bumper warranty covers you for 5 years or 60,000 miles. The Powertrain warranty lasts for a whopping 10 years or 100,000 miles. Hyundai even throws in 5 years of free roadside assistance. All this makes the Elantra GT perfect for the new and growing family.

Is the Hyundai Elantra GT a Good Car?

First, the Hyundai Elantra GT comes with America's Best Warranty. The confidence that Hyundai has in its quality should give you confidence in it as well. Beyond the extra cargo room that the Elantra GT offers, as well as its flat folding rear seats, the GT also has a load of features to make it more convenient. Wireless charging, USB ports, and the complete connectivity of Apple CarPlay or Android Auto let you seamlessly integrate the technology you already use into your new car. The technology extends to the safety features as well. Blind spot detection, Lane Keep Assistance, and more help you stay as safe as possible.

What's the Difference Between the Hyundai Elantra GT and the Hyundai Elantra GT Sport?

First, both models are impressive. The Elantra GT has a lower price tag, so if price is a concern, then the GT would be a great choice. It doesn't have as many features, but still comes standard with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth with voice recognition, blind spot detection, and brake assist. The GT Sport costs more but gives you more for your money. The Sport provides 201 Horse-power for that extra get up and go, has more safety options like Lane Keep Assist and Forward Collision Warning, as well as stiffer handling for a better response. If you're looking for a deal, go for the GT. If you are looking forward to the all-around driving experience, go for the Sport.

What is the Eco Mode on the Hyundai Elantra GT?

The Active ECO system changes the way that the car works in order to increase your fuel economy. If you use it all the time, you'll probably see a consistent difference at the pump. However, there's always a cost--in this case, it's power and performance. Sometimes the ECO system can also minimize how well the A/C works to use less energy. You'll probably only need to use the ECO button when you're in city traffic, where you're frequently stopping and starting, rather than on the highway.
