Sporty Hatch Showcases Aggressive Stance

With a more aggressive attitude and larger interior space, the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT made its debut this month at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. You’ll have your choice of the base GT or the more powerful GT sport when the Elantra arrives at Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road this summer. “The new Elantra GT brings more to the North American shores for the 2018 model year,” according to Hyundai product planning director Scott Margason. “More space and features inside. More aggression and European flair outside. And more options under the hood. I’m particularly excited to showcase the GT Sport, a true hot hatch.”

Clever Design Makes More Cargo Room

Although the overall size of the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT is pretty comparable to its competitors, some clever design work gives it the most cargo and people hauling room in its class. The Elantra GT has 96.5 cubic feet of passenger space along with more than 55 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded down. That’s more than the Honda Civic, Chevy Cruze, Ford Focus or any other hatch in its class. The design of the car is lower and wider than ever before, providing an athletic silhouette that you’ll normally find on cars costing thousands of dollars more. With more than half of the Elantra built with high-strength steel, it’s stiffer and lighter than ever before. The rigidity improves both handling and safety.

Inside Created for Comfort

With available alloy seats, dual-zone climate control and alloy racing pedals, the interior of the Hyundai Elantra GT offers a touch of sophistication in an affordable car. The infotainment system pair easily with your smartphone, using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. Wireless charging keeps your electronics powered up for use on long trips. An 8-inch audio display is standard, using touch screen technology and voice recognition to control all your communication and audio needs. The AVN 5.0 system offers an easier way to use presets for AM, FM and SiriusXM radio, as they all show up on one screen.

Use Alexa to Start Your New Hyundai

Utilizing Blue Link technology, Hyundai has worked with Amazon so customers can use the Alexa voice controller to start the car and control the temperature. Whether its 110 degrees or zero, you can simply tell Alexa to start your car and preset the temperature so it will be comfortable when you’re ready to start your daily commute. Test drive the new Elantra GT when it shows up on the Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road sales floor this summer.

Safe, Efficient and Sporty Equals Perfection for Young Drivers

So your child is now driving and you’re looking for an affordable vehicle that will help ensure he or she gets home safely at night. You could buy an old beater, but truth is you’ll probably spend more in repairs monthly than you’d like. Consider the Hyundai Accent, a sporty sedan that starts at just $14,745 and offers 37 mpg on the highway, six airbags and a vehicle stability management system. The Accent also delivers an exceptional design with modern technology that your teen will love. Go check out the latest models by taking a trip to Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road.

Four Different Models to Select

Even the most expensive Accent, the Sport Hatchback, starts at just $17,495, but if you go with the base SE you’ll still get air conditioning, power windows and locks, a 6-way adjustable driver seat, tilt steering wheel and an AM/FM Sirius stereo system that has a hookup for an MP3 player. Step up just a tad to the Value Edition and you also get Bluetooth streaming and controls mounted on the steering wheel for the audio and cruise control. The Sport Hatchback is the top of the line with even more features including a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.

Safety First in All Hyundai Models

You are naturally a little hesitant to turn your child loose on the road, but you can take comfort in the fact that all Hyundai models put safety first. The Hyundai Accent offers the same safety features across the board, not depending on trim level or cost. Vehicle Stability Management, Electronic Stability Control and the Traction Control System are three features that work in concert to ensure your teen driver will have as much help as possible keeping the car on the road in dicey conditions. The braking system is state-of-the-art, with four-wheel anti-lock brakes, electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist. A tire pressure monitoring system lets you know when you need to look at the tires, while front and rear crumple zones help direct the energy of a crash away from the occupants in the case of an accident. All Hyundai Accent models also come with a remote keyless entry system that includes an alarm.

Hyundai has Best Warranty in the Business

You also know that you are in for a nice stretch of not having to pay for costly repairs when you buy a Hyundai Accent. Hyundai has the industry’s best warranty, including a bumper-to-bumper limited warranty that covers the first 5 years or 60,000 miles of ownership. The powertrain warranty is even longer, covering 10 years and 10,000 miles. What might be most attractive is the 5-year/unlimited mileage roadside assistance that ensures help is just a phone call away if your teen breaks down, has a flat tire or needs gas. See why the Hyundai Accent is the best choice for young drivers by taking a trip to Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road.
