The 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Comes Highly Rated from Kelley Blue Book

The automotive research and valuation expert donned our new Hyundai hatchback a "blend of refinement, eager driving manners, efficiency, and hatchback versatility" geared for the "active enthusiast." But what made 2018 Elantra GT a hit with the professional reviewers? Quite a few elements, actually.

For one, the Web review arm,, lauded the new Elantra GT for the "raised sport coefficient" afforded by the highly responsive multi-link rear suspension in its Sport trim. Of course, this wasn't to mention the spirit behind it: a 201-horsepower, 1.6-liter turbocharged inline-four engine putting out its turn and pull prowess at 195 pound-feet of torque. What's more, KBB found a favorite feature in the new hatchback line's available seven-speed dual-clutch auto transmission, which it claimed brought "a whole new driving dynamic" to the fore as well as impeccable fuel economy credentials.

Not all there was in store for sport hatchback aficionados here in the Groveport, OH area however, the list went on, mentioning a spacious interior at the top of its class, the compact car's driver-centric cockpit (with palpable controls for the connoisseur of the solid feel), plus sophisticated aesthetics, from hexagonal grille to athletic perch, front air curtains to integrated rear trunk-lid spoiler.
