2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Sport Denver CO

2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Sport Denver CO

Overview

The GT-the racing-style five-door hatchback version of the Hyundai Elantra-appeared in the United States for the first time in 2017. For the past decade, the nameplate has entrenched itself as one of the country's most popular small four-door sedans. And with the GT, customers have the chance of getting a more exciting and utilitarian version. With the sixth generation of the regular version kicking off only a few years ago, there are few major changes made to the GT for the 2018 model year. The model is split into two trims, of which the Sport is the upper-level trim.

Interior

With two seats that accommodate up to five people, the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Sport-as a compact vehicle-offers 96.5 cubic feet of passenger volume. With rear seats upright, the cargo volume is measured at 24.9 cubic feet; with the seats folded, it is expanded to 24.9 cubic feet. The cabin has leather-trimmed seats, with front seating possessing 6-way power adjustment and heating ability. Infotainment is provided by a six-speaker stereo system, which includes an AM/FM radio tuner, HD Radio, SiriusXM satellite radio service, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for smartphone-based control, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free phone operation and audio streaming, and an 8-inch high-resolution display. Other comfort and convenience features inside the vehicle include proximity keyless entry with push-button engine start, a 4.2-inch TFT cluster display, and an auto-defogging and air-filtering dual-zone automatic climate control system. Optional is a complimentary three-year subscription to the Blue Link telematics system, which, depending on which package you choose, provides car care and remote access services such as automatic collision notification, roadside and emergency assistance, maintenance alerts, monthly vehicle health reporting, vehicle finder, and smartphone-based remote door lock and unlock ability. Also optional are HomeLink for remote-controlling garage doors, power lumbar support for the driver's seat, 8-inch touchscreen navigation, a wireless charging pad, seven-speaker premium audio, cooling ability on the front seats, and auto-dimming on the rearview mirror for curbing the brightness of headlights behind you.

Exterior

For exterior lighting, the hatchback has LED headlamps on both ends for super-bright and long-lasting illumination. The headlights in particular have automatic light control for switching them on or off depending on the amount of outdoor light, as well as daytime running lights with an off switch for increasing conspicuity. At the front doors are heated dual-power body-color side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, and the car rides on 18-inch alloy wheels. You can add a panoramic sunroof for enhanced ventilation during the hotter months.

Mechanical

Powering the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Sport is a 1.6-liter turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine, which produces 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. Typically, the engine is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission; however, you can opt for a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission with paddle shifters to enjoy the benefits of a semi-automatic gearbox.

Powertrain

The 2018 Hyundai vehicle uses a unibody construction, which gives it greater integrity and stability than if it had its pieces bolted onto the frame. A MacPherson strut front suspension and a torsion axle rear suspension-complete with coil springs and shock absorbers-make for a smoother ride by absorbing the bumps. And motor-driven power steering not only provides sharp turning and cornering, but also enforces efficiency, since its source of power is an independent motor, rather than the engine itself.

Safety

For cushioning and restraint in the event of a collision, the 2018 Elantra GT Sport has dual front impact airbags, a driver's knee airbag, dual side impact airbags installed on the front seats, and a pair of side curtain airbags that flank both rows to provide head protection. The vehicle has large all-wheel disc brakes to keep stopping distances short, and they are accompanied by anti-lock braking for preventing wheel lock-up during an abrupt stop. Other standard safety features include electronic vehicle stability control for keeping you on the intended driving path, traction control to combat skidding on slippery surfaces, and hill start assist for preventing the car from rolling back when you shift from park to drive on a steep hill. The advanced safety features on the hatchback are blind spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane change assist for alerting you when a vehicle is approaching you or is in a blind spot, thus enabling you to act accordingly. Other features-such as forward collision warning, smart cruise control, high beam assist, lane keep assist, and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection-are optional.
