2019 Hyundai Elantra GT: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

, Automotive Editor - October 12, 2017

Model Preview

After a complete redesign for 2018 that brought in a brand-new look and new mechanicals, we expect no significant changes to the 2019 Elantra GT.

As a carryover, the 2019 Elantra GT will likely be virtually indistinguishable from the 2018 model. So, it’ll carry on with the same European-inspired looks, long nose and sharp lines on the outside, and sleek, stylish interior with available leather seats, 8-inch display, Infinity premium audio, and more.

Standard features should also carry on without any changes. This means we should expect to see the 2019 Elantra GT roll in well equipped with standard 17-inch alloy wheels, rearview camera, LED daytime running lights, Bluetooth connectivity, an 8-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and more.

We expect the powertrain options to also remain unchanged in the 2019 Elantra GT. Look for the standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 161 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque remains. This engine pairs with either the standard six-speed manual or the optional six-speed automatic.

Optionally, buyers can choose the 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder in the Sport trim, which produces 201 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. The Sport trim will continue with its standard six-speed manual transmission and optional seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

The IIHS has yet to test the 2018 Elantra GT for safety, but we expect high marks, considering its sedan sibling received the coveted Top Safety Pick Plus designation in 2017. The 2018 Elantra GT’s array of available safety features, including adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, attention assist, automatic high beams, and blind-spot detection, are expected to remain in place in 2019.

Pricing & Release Date

There’s no official word on when the 2019 Elantra GT will arrive, but we expect to see it in the summer of 2018.

Pricing, while still unconfirmed, should remain close to the current Elantra GT’s range of $21,235 to $25,235 (destination fees included).

The key competitors for the 2019 Elantra GT will include the Ford Focus hatchback, Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback, and Volkswagen Golf.
