The New Hyundai Elantra GT Hatchback

In the United States, we tend to favor our family sedans and small crossovers. Compact, five-door cars aren’t usually seen as a top-seller here. In Europe, however, hatchbacks are the more popular choice. Hyundai, however, has faith that the hatch will bounce back, and they have a not-so-secret tool to facilitate this: the all-new 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Hatchback.

The new Elantra Hatchback recently made its debut at the Chicago Auto Show. It has a sophisticated, Euro-inspired appearance with sleek curves and a wider, longer, and lower body. At 55 cubic-feet of interior space, the 2018 Elantra GT Hatchback offers more room than its previous generations and any of its competitors.

2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Hatchback - Nacogdoches, TXThe Elantra Hatchback will come in two different trims, the GT and the GT Sport. The GT will be equipped with a 2.0-liter engine good for 162 horsepower, while the GT Sport will have a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine that boasts 201 horsepower. This peppy acceleration is a fun type of performance often associated with hatchbacks, and one that Hyundai hopes will draw more people towards the hatch.

In fact, Hyundai is anticipating the new hatchback to make up more than 15% of Elantra sales once it hits the market. We look forward to offering this new, modern hatchback at Rex Perry Hyundai and can’t wait to test drive it ourselves!
