2019 Hyundai Elantra GT Melbourne FL
For the 2018 model year, the Elantra GT was completely redesigned as it entered its third generation. Some people find this a bit confusing, as the Hyundai Elantra has been around since 1991 and is currently in the midst of its sixth generation. The Elantra GT is actually called the i30 in other markets, making it its own nameplate that simply marketed differently here in North America.
Anyways, with the sporty hatchback sedan being redesigned for the 2018 model year, there wasn’t much need for any changes to come with the 2019 Hyundai Elantra GT in Melbourne FL. However, that doesn’t make the newest version of the GT any less exciting. It delivers all the same exciting new features and design cues that the all-new 2018 model did, with a nice blend of performance and efficiency to boot.
Specs & Features of the 2019 Elantra GT
Let’s start by talking about one of the most important aspects of any hatchback sedan – its cargo capacity. The Elantra GT provides close to 25 cubic feet of cargo capacity behind the rear seats alone, but when you drop them down it opens up even more space. In fact, it opens up one of the largest cargo areas of any vehicle in its class. The Ford Focus offers 43.9 cu. ft., the Honda Civic 46.2 cu. ft., the Mazda3 47.1, Chevy Cruze 47.2 and Volkswagen Golf 52.7. But the Elantra GT? How does 55.1 cubic feet of space sound to you.
When it comes to performance, the Elantra GT offers two different engine options so that shoppers have a choice. The standard engine option is a 2.0L 4-cylinder that generates 162 horsepower and superior fuel economy, while the second option – standard on the GT Sport trim level – is a 1.6L turbocharged 4-cylinder. This engine bumps performance up to 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque without losing much in the way of efficiency.
The Elantra GT is of course packed with all sorts of other content inside its stylish package. If you’d like to learn more, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us here at Coastal Hyundai.
