Chicago Auto Show Site of New Elantra GT Unveiling

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.
