2017 Chicago Auto Show: 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT
Hyundai put the 2017 Chicago Auto Show to work this year by unveiling a new level of driving comfort. The 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT aspires to European style and performance in a hatchback. When the new hatchback arrives in late summer 2017, buyers can choose between the GT or the more powerful GT Sport.
The 2018 Elantra GT offers early 25 cubic feet of behind rear seat storage, standard vertical LED daytime running lights, eight-inch display audio with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, dual-zone climate control, high and low beam LED headlights, wireless smartphone charging, Amazon Alexa Blue Link remote starting and Blue Link heated features.
The car’s styling hangs lower and wider. Extensive use of steel alloy makes the Elantra GT, stiffer, stronger and lighter. It’s 22% more rigid than the last GT. Under the hood, there are two inline-four-cylinder engines in the Elantra GT. The GT Sport’s engine gets an estimated 201 horsepower.
