When it comes to the Hyundai lineup, the Elantra is one of the most iconic. It has now been around for three decades as of this model year, and the compact sedan makes a great option in its diverse segment. However, just a few short years ago a separate version of the vehicle was introduced: the Elantra GT, a hatchback version of the increasingly popular car. Now, we introduce the 2020 Hyundai Elantra GT, available now here in Melbourne FL!
The 2018 model year saw a redesign for the sporty hatchback, which means the model is still relatively fresh and new. With that in mind, nothing has changed for the new model year, but it still makes for an exciting option in the compact hatchback market with plenty of impressive specs & features.
This year, the Elantra GT is available in jus two different trim levels. The base represents everything you’d expect from a Hyundai hatchback sedan, while the top tier N Line trim kicks everything up to 11 in terms of performance and sportiness. It adds several sporty design cues to both the exterior and interior, adds a few performance-oriented features and tunes certain aspects for superior performance as well.
Each trim has its own engine, with the base getting a 2.0L 4-cylinder capable of generating 161 horsepower alongside 150 pound-feet of torque. The N Line gets a slight smaller engine with a 1.6L 4-cylinder, but its turbocharged nature allows the top-tier Elantra GT to generate a boosted 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft. of torque. That’s a pretty big leap up in the compact market.
Of course, there’s plenty else to get excited about in either trim if performance isn’t your thing, too. For instance, Hyundai SmartSense includes a number of outstanding advanced driver-assistive safety technologies like Blind-Spot Collision Warning and Lane Keeping Assist among others.
