Take Command With Your Smart Phone

Starting with the 2017 IONIQ models and continuing with all 2018 vehicles that are equipped with the Blue Link telemetry package, Hyundai is waving the monthly service fees for a full three years. Hyundai Blue Link works via your smart phone, smart watch, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant to control a number of functions in your vehicle that make your daily commute more pleasant. Use Blue Link to lock and unlock your car, remote start, set the temperature, flash the lights and more. Blue Link will also control the heated side mirrors and rear defroster on the 2018 Elantra GT and Sonata. For a hands-on demonstration on how Blue Link can make your driving life easier, head to Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road today.

Remote Start a Popular Feature

Whether you live in the icy north or the Arizona desert, the ability to remotely start your car and set the temperature is a well-appreciated feature. “Remote start has always been our most popular remote service,” according to Hyundai digital planning director Manish Mehrotra. “Hyundai owners request more than one million remote starts a month during the winter and perform more than a million remote locks annually. Our customers love to be connected, so improving their value and overall experience at no additional cost maintains our commitment to do better.”

Safety Features Standard with Blue Link

While some competitors charge extra for emergency notification in the event of an accident, the Hyundai Automatic Collision Notification comes at no charge to Blue Link subscribers. So do the Stolen Vehicle Recovery and SOS Emergency Assistance features, which give Hyundai owners immediate connectivity to a response center in the event of a problem. Just push the dedicated SOS button to get in touch with a person that can alert authorities 24/7, every day of the year. The GPS function of the Blue Link system can also help police find your vehicle in the event it falls in the hands of thieves.

List of Standard Features Lengthy

The different packages that come with Hyundai Blue Link feature a long list of services. Here is a partial list of some of the most popular items. For all the details, stop by Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road today. The Connected Care Package not only includes emergency assistance, but also a monthly vehicle health report, diagnostic code notification, maintenance reminder, enhanced roadside assistance and on-demand diagnostics. Choose the remote package to access a number of vehicle functions, including locking and unlocking, remote start, car finder and curfew alert. The Guidance Package requires factory navigation and includes complimentary map updates and Google’s destination search.

With an available 1.6L turbo engine, sport rear multi-link suspension, an aggressive design and tons of room for people and cargo, the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT is the smart choice for people looking for their next adventure. The new Elantra GT is loaded with both attitude and technology, with features such as wireless charging and a suite of driver assistance innovations to help make each drive safer. A standard 8-inch touchscreen comes equipped to pair with your smartphone, taking advantage of a number of apps and letting you stream music, podcasts and audio books. Be among the first to drive the new Elantra GT when it arrives on the Chapman Hyundai showroom floor this summer.

Formidable Challenger to Civic and Golf

The Honda Civic and VW Golf have long reigned supreme in the compact hatchback category, but Car and Driver magazine says that may soon be coming to an end with the introduction of the 2018 Hyunda Elantra GT. With an optional 201 horsepower engine, sleek lines and a keen attention to craftsmanship, the newest entry in the Hyundai lineup is poised to give the Golf and Civic a run for their money. “The Elantra GT’s interior looks upscale and sensibly laid out, with a dashboard design different from the sedan’s,” Car and Driver said. “This new Hyundai has the potential to be a formidable challenger to segment favorite hatchbacks such as the Honda Civic and Volkswagen Golf.”

More Steel Delivers Superior Handling

Hyundai has put almost twice the amount of high-strength steel in this version of the hatchback, making a stiffer body that holds corners better than previous models. The new GT is based on European styling, with a cascading grille, sleek new lights and a short overhang on the rear. This model is lower and wider than previous generations, creating a more muscular look and a lower center of gravity for improved handling in corners.

New GT Has Industry Best Warranty

Of course, the new Hyundai Elantra GT carries the same industry-best warranty as the entire Hyundai lineup. While most new car manufacturers give you 36,000 mile/3-year bumper to bumper limited coverage, Hyundai bumps that up to 60,000 miles and 5 years. The 100,000 mile powertrain warranty means you’ll be enjoying your new Elantra GT for a long time to come. Check in often to see when the first model will be arriving at Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road.
