At $18,395 shoppers will discover 39 highway miles per gallon, more interior space than Ford Focus, Mazda3 and Volkswagen Golf and Hyundai's Driver Selectable Steering Mode. The 2013 Elantra GT will begin arriving in dealerships later this month.

    2013 Elantra GT Pricing

    • Elantra GT 1.8L I4 6-speed M/T $18,395
    • Elantra GT 1.8L I4 6-speed A/T w/ SHIFTRONIC® $19,395
    • Freight Charges for the 2013 MY Elantra Coupe are $775.

    HIGHLIGHTS FOR 2013 ELANTRA GT

    • Fluidic Sculpture design
    • Powered by an advanced 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine and in-house six-speed automatic or manual transmission
    • Horsepower: 148 at 6,500 rpm (ULEV)
    • Best-in-class standard fuel economy 39 mpg highway
    • Best-in-class specific output at 82.2 horsepower per liter
    • Lightest five-door hatchback in the compact segment
    • Sport-tuned suspension
    • More passenger and maximum cargo volume than Focus, Mazda3, Golf and Matrix
    • Standard heated front seats
    • Driver knee airbag – an Elantra first
    • Hidden rear camera
    • More aerodynamic than Impreza, Matrix or Golf

    The new Elantra GT represents the evolution of Hyundai's Fluidic Sculpture design language. Elantra GT's design gives it a slippery 0.30 coefficient of drag. Up front, Hyundai's signature hexagonal grille with chrome accents flows into the hood. The bodyside graphic features a chrome beltline molding to keep up with the sleek character lines. Sharp projection headlamps, fog lights and available panoramic sunroof and 17-inch alloy wheels with chrome spears complete the modern design.

    Maximizing interior volume and delighting customers with various seating layouts are hallmarks of Hyundai engineering and translate into more cabin room, cargo space and versatility. The Elantra GT features seating layouts that can comfortably seat five people or accommodate four passengers, plus long items like golf clubs or snowboards. Fold all of the back seats to get CUV-sized cargo space. These options allow customers to discover that Elantra GT has more interior volume than Matrix, Mazda3, Ford Focus and VW Golf and even more cargo capacity than the Nissan Juke crossover, thanks to split-fold-down rear seats and rear seat cushions than can flip upward. Like its stablemate the Elantra Coupe, heated front seats are standard.

    With gas prices exceeding $4 per gallon in many areas of the U.S., compact car buyers are downsizing for better fuel efficiency, but these buyers expect premium features. The Elantra GT offers the following optional premium features: power driver's seat including power lumbar support, dual automatic temperature control with clean air ionizer and auto defog system, leather seating surfaces, navigation with hidden rearview camera and proximity key with push button start. Elantra GT comes in three flavors, mirroring the packaging simplicity of the popular Hyundai Veloster: an extremely well-equipped base model, a Style package offering panoramic sunroof, upgraded wheels, and more, and a Tech package offering navigation system and more.

    Elantra GT is tuned for added feel, responsiveness and control, while the Elantra sedan is tuned for comfort. Modifications to the GT include higher rear spring rates, a V-Beam rear suspension design with an integrated stabilizer bar and Sachs dampers for improved body motion control. These changes create driving dynamics which are sporty and comfortable. In addition, two suspension packages were developed to optimize tuning for the two different tire sizes. The Elantra GT's Style package offers a sportier suspension calibration that is optimized for its lower-profile P215/45R17 tire.

    Behind the wheel, drivers benefit from Hyundai's all-new Driver Selectable Steering Mode. With three operating modes to select – Comfort, Normal and Sport – this innovative system allows drivers to adapt Elantra GT steering characteristics to varying driving preferences and road conditions any time they choose. Comfort level offers the greatest ease of steering and is ideal for city and parking environments. Sport is optimized for higher-speed highways or winding roads, while Normal is ideal for a mix of driving conditions. The Driver Selectable Steering Mode not only adjusts power assistance levels in each mode, but also on-center build-up feel and steering build-up curves throughout the steering range, for a very natural, progressive feel.

    The 2013 Elantra GT delivers an EPA estimated 39 mpg highway with either a six speed manual or automatic transmission. Under the hood, Elantra GT is powered by a 1.8-liter Nu four-cylinder engine with 148 horsepower and 131 lb-ft of torque, the same as found in the Elantra sedan. The engine is mated to either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic with SHIFTRONIC®. Elantra GT is available as an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) or Partial Zero Emission Vehicles (PZEV). The PZEV Elantra GT is as clean as many hybrid electric vehicles, helping Hyundai meet its environmental commitments.

    Boy they are really pushing hard to give you high level features at entry level prices. Only a few years ago you would not find heated seats on any low end car. Now everyone feels they have to have them.

    Kids today have no Idea what it was like growing up and sitting on a cold vinyl seat. Using your own body heat to warm the seat on a winters day.

    That coupe is nice, man. So glad to see it.

    The GT will not match the Touring, it's a different animal. Touring people will be disappointed... yet another wagon gone.
