The Hyundai Elantra GT is redesigned for 2018 and quite different from its sedan counterpart.
It offers an attractive, European-influenced design, an uncluttered interior, and nimble handling.
Its ride comfort is a bit stiff, and the car isn’t particularly quiet.
The civilized base powertrain is responsive and managed a decent 28 mpg overall.
The uplevel Sport version brings a firmer suspension, an extra 40 horsepower, and optional advanced safety systems.
The car’s low-slung stance makes it an effort to climb in and out, but once in, the front seats are comfortable and there is adjustable lumbar support.
The hatchback makes it easy to carry a bicycle when the rear seat are folded down.
The car comes with a lot of equipment for the money, and the controls are easy to use.
