The 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Hatchback is a compact hatchback offered in 2 trims, starting off at a base MSRP of $20,350. For that price, it mainly competes with the Volkswagen Golf, the Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback, and the Ford Focus Hatchback. Between 2 trims, the Elantra GT offers 2 powertrain options. The base engine is a 2.0L Inline-4 capable of making 162 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque. This engine gets a 6-speed manual transmission as standard and 6-speed automatic transmission as an option. If more power is required, there is also a 201 horsepower-making 1.6L turbocharged inline 4. This engine can be opted with a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed auto-manual transmission. The Elantra GT reaches 60 MPH from zero in 8.6 seconds on its base engine, which gets pumped up to 6.3 seconds with the turbocharged engine. Depending on the powertrain, the Elantra GT can manage a combined fuel economy between 26 and 28 MPG. While we’re on the topic of choices, the 6 striking colors the Elantra GT comes in really pull you towards itself.
