2019 Hyundai Elantra GT Redesigned
2019 Hyundai Elantra GT Redesigned - Smaller hatchbacks like the 2019 Hyundai Elantra GT have never really gotten on in America, yet it has little to do with their benefits. Simple to stop, modest on gas, and surprisingly down to earth, the flighty lords of mold have since a long time ago walked out on the modest bring forth, a situation made all the more unexpected by the detonating prevalence of small SUVs, which are essentially hatchbacks on stilts.

In case you're thinking about a sport-utility vehicle or crossover, you deserve to take a period out and test drive a more moderate, better-handling, and more affordable hatchback like the Elantra GT. I spent a day steering this totally redesigned Hyundai, and left away awed by what it brings to the table.

The 2019 Hyundai Elantra is all elbows, the extent that we're concerned. Just a couple of years back it was lost in the conservative car melange, a variety of middling econobox setbacks.

Presently, the Elantra is a completely fledged contender with a current history of conveying sharp style, an extensive cabin, and solid features at a sensible price.

A hatchback joins the Elantra family however don't give the name a chance to trick you—the Elantra sedan and 2019 Hyundai Elantra GT are really more like cousins.

From numerous points of view, the hatchback is better than the sedan in inside space and complete as well as in suspension setup. The hatchback is typically greater, and more flexible, however we're not in affection with its ergonomics.

Rather, we value its superior suspension setup that lone demonstrates its spending roots when the street turns loathsome. The Elantra GT's steering is light, however exact, and the hatchback feels planted—albeit somewhat overwhelming—in cornering. These are for the most part great things, and the correlation with a Volkswagen GTI is a reasonable one to make.

In case you're not swayed by the hatchback contention (you'd be in the dominant part, as well) the sedan is able all the same. In spite of the fact that its base engine isn't as powerful, the Elantra Sport can be a fun, tossable minimized that we wouldn't blame any customer for considering.

2019 Hyundai Elantra GT Trims

The 2019 Elantra begins at a modest $17,835 with sensible gear at that cost. The sedan is furnished with 15-inch wheels, a six-speaker sound framework, manual transmission, material upholstery, 3.5-inch LCD screen, and a handshake.

That is outstanding at the cost, yet not incredible.

Most purchasers will begin with the Elantra SEL that swaps in a 7.0-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, 16-inch wheels, cruise control, Bluetooth—you know, 2017 features. It begins at $1,900 more than the manual-prepared base model and incorporates an automatic transmission.

We're speculating that is the place most purchasers will begin and we think you ought to as well. Over the typical 5, the Elantra gains focuses for a decent infotainment framework, great gear, and an amazing 5-year/60,000-mile guarantee.

For 2019, Hyundai mixed its Popular trim package on SE models into another trim level, called SEL. It's as yet a decent incentive in the portion, however contenders, for example, Honda and Toyota are making up for lost time.

A Value Edition trim level includes familiar luxuries from awesome Limiteds, for example, a sunroof, warmed seats, calfskin wrapped steering wheel and shift handle, and double zone atmosphere control however holds back before cowhide upholstery.

The Limited trimmed Elantras offer lashings of chrome all around, cowhide seats, telematics, 17-inch wheels, two USB charging ports, keyless start, and uprated headlights. Constrained models offer an uprated 8.0-inch infotainment screen with route.

Sport models are trimmed likewise to Limited variants, yet offer a more powerful engine and an indistinguishable optional features from Limited models.

Elantra Eco models are nearer to SEL models, however sub in smaller 15-inch wheels for better mileage.

Elantra GT models begin nearer to SEL models, however Hyundai hasn't yet sketched out prices for those forms yet. Stay tuned.

2019 Hyundai Elantra GT Exterior

2019 Hyundai Elantra GT Redesigned
The 2019 Elantra isn't as strong as its ancestors, however it doesn't really should be. Hyundai isn't battling for consideration like it used to be, and the new Elantra GT mirrors that state of mind.

The sedan acquires a 6 out of 10 on our styling scale because of shapely sheet metal, with opportunity to get better in its inside. The hatchback takes a turn on that style, yet we don't know it's superior to the sedan.

The sedan has further lines over the doors, however it merges with the bumpers and roofline betterly than it has in earlier years.

By examination, the Elantra GT swaps out the substantial trapezoidal grille with a squeezed rendition and a work embed. The headlights are more hawkish, with an alternate light get together than the sedan. The hatchback doesn't get a similar LED daytime running light treatment that the sedan gets, and we wish it did.

Around back, the sedan utilizes a trio of taillights and an upturned decklid to complete off its shape, while the hatchback obscures its lines with a rounder undertaking for the rear.

Hyundai Elantra GT 2019 Interior

Inside, the sedan's moves are what we like somewhat more.

The Elantra bunks the Sonata's direct shape, with an insight of inclination toward the driver by inclining the vast majority of the controls and touchscreen toward the principal situate. A solid measurements of dark plastic gives a false representation of the Elantra's sharp outside and is an unwelcome stride far from the last Elantra's not as much as temperate look.

The Elantra GT 2019 feels hurried with its quickly set touchscreen that ascents from the middle vents. The middle bunch doesn't feel as considered either, likely due to the Elantra GT's worldwide life as a multi-showcase hatchback sold far and wide.

The 2019 Hyundai Elantra Sport brags 55 cubic feet of aggregate cargo space with its rear seat collapsed forward, and an equally helpful 24.9 shapes with all five traveler sports possessed.

Give those numbers a chance to marinate for a minute. With a full heap of people in the front and rear seats, you can pull more rigging in the 2019 Elantra GT than you can in the Honda HR-V, the new Nissan Rogue Sport, or even the (apparently) bigger Audi Q5. Overlap things down and the Hyundai is a dead match for the Q5's aggregate cargo rating, and inside five percent of the size of the highly commended HR-V – also five 3D squares greater than the Jeep Renegade, 10 3D squares superior to a Mazda CX-4, and an astounding 19 cubic feet past what you could stuff into a Toyota CH-R.

Is reasonableness really the motivation behind why such a large number of families have glommed onto sport-utility vehicles? Most likely not. It's more probable that we're taking a gander at an inebriating blend of advertising, style, and mindless conformity – limited consolidation for helpful, more amusing to-drive, yet to a great extent disregarded hatchback alternatives like the Elantra GT.

2019 Hyundai Elantra GT Engine Specs

A further strike against the 2019 Hyundai Elantra GT is the absence of all-wheel drive on the request sheet. This isn't a genuine issue, since a decent arrangement of season-particular tires will manage 99 percent of the unpleasant climate that most all-wheel drive crossovers are tuned to deal with, however again advertising experts have played their hand well on the AWD up-offer, to the drawback of the individuals who will deny themselves the opportunity to test both of the Elantra GT's four-cylinder choices.

Base variants of the car accompany a 2.0-liter plant that is useful for 162 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque, while venturing up to the Sport nets you a 201 horsepower, 1.6-liter turbocharged engine that additionally creates 195 lb-ft of curve. A six-speed manual transmission is available with either engine, yet in the event that you pick the auto course then there's an intersection: the 2.0-liter is burdened to a conventional six-speed auto while the turbo profits by a seven-speed double grip automated manual box.

That is somewhat of a stage down in power for the most reasonable rendition of the hatchback, however neither one of the engines is especially saddled by the generally lightweight Elantra GT (in spite of the fact that the turbocharged Sport is substantially snappier when passing or pulling far from a stop). Fuel productivity evaluations aren't official yet, however I gauge you'll see near 32-mpg in consolidated driving from the section level model.

The Elantra utilizes two sorts of suspension setups, contingent upon model, and we're enthusiasts of both. Anything without a "Sport" identification utilizes a typical MacPherson front, torsion pillar rear end setup that assignments the magnificent body to cover uneven streets.

Indeed, even with the Limited's 17-inch tires, the Elantra absolves itself well on most streets with a made, calm ride.

Sport models utilize a free rear suspension to plant those models out and about and control body movements. The Elantra Sport (especially the GT) doesn't trick us into trusting it's a lightweight sprinter, however it does well with breathtaking streets and won't rebuff us for taking the tourist detour—we acknowledge the two qualities.

We weren't as certain with the brakes when we drove the Elantra Sport (sedan). Our analyzers detailed a wooden pedal and observable blur when we squeezed hard on the plugs.

2019 Hyundai Elantra GT Safety

The Hyundai Elantra is torn. Official information on the sedan is blended, and fragmented on the hatchback.

The IIHS calls the sedan a Top Safety Pick+ on account of good scores on its crash tests, phenomenal propelled safety frameworks, and available headlights.

Government controllers have diverse thoughts. The sedan is earned a moderately uncommon four-star overall score and an uncommon note as an afterthought affect traveler side crash test that the effect touched the rear sham. The new Elantra GT hasn't been tried at all.

A note about that Top Safety Pick+ grant: it just applies to top Limited trims with cutting edge safety alternatives chose. The optional suite incorporates blind side screens, dynamic lane control, forward impact cautioning with automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control. Different automakers, for example, Honda and Toyota are making some of those features standard on their conservative sedan extend.

To get the headlights that the IIHS appraised "Great" likewise requires an optional additional, exclusive on the Limited trim also. All different trims get standard halogen projectors that have been evaluated "Poor" by the IIHS.

All Elantra accompany stability control, a driver knee airbag, and a driver-side blind side mirror. - 2019 Hyundai Elantra GT Redesigned
