The 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT is an all new model. The 2013 Elantra GT will replance the outgoing Elantra Touring as Hyundai’s small hatchback offering. Car price of 2013 Elantra GT is currently unavailable. Now, the Elantra GT already on the road in Europe. Hyundai claims that a GT equipped with an automatic transmission weighs 151 pound less than a similarly trimmed Mazda 3 and 222 pounds less than the Volkswagen Golf.
The Elantra GT uses the same 148-horsepower, 1.8-liter four-cylinder found in the sedan and coupe. Paired with a six-speed automatic or six-speed manual, the engine will help the GT return 28 mpg city/39 mpg highway and 32 mpg combined, Hyundai says. The 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT offers an impressive list of standard features that include heated front seats, a 10 way power driver seat, a cooled glovebox, dual-zone climate control, a six-speaker sound system with a USB/iPod interface, Bluetooth and seven airbags, including a driver knee bag. Two options packages are available.
Those seeking a sportier ride will want the Style package, which includes 17-inch wheels, a sport-tuned suspension and a panoramic sunroof. The Tech package offers automatic headlamps, keyless ignition/entry, automatic dual-zone climate control, a navigation system with touchscreen display and a rearview camera. Inside the cabin, the Elantra GT looks much like recent models from Hyundai, a slightly revised center console complementing comfortable seats and a selection of quality materials.
We found that headroom suffers on models with the panoramic sunroof, and there’s actually more clearance in the coupe. Key competitors of 2013 Elantra GT such as Ford Focus, Subaru Impreza and Volkswagen Golf. Release date of 2013 Elantra GT in Fall 2012.
