2018 Hyundai Elantra - Interior

The GT Sport has some impressive standard amenities inside the cabin. You get leather seats with red accents and heated front seats to boot. The interior has a matching leather-wrapped steering wheel just for this model trim and you can easily stay connected to the world around you with the 8-inch center stack display screen. The Civic Si and the Volkswagen GTI don't offer those features at base model prices. The GTI doesn't have leather seating at all. There's also loads of interior cargo space. With the rear seats folded down you get 55.1 cubic feet, that's more than the Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback, Honda Civic Hatchback, and 5-door Mazda3. All that interior space also translates to 42.2 inches of front leg room so you can really stretch out.

2018 Hyundai Elantra - Exterior

The GT Sport is available in six different premium exterior paint finishes, just like the standard Elantra GT hatchback. However, you won't have to just rely on the Sport badge to tell this vehicle apart from its GT counterpart. The GT Sport has 18-inch alloy wheels as well as full LED head lamps and tail lights. A panoramic sunroof is optional on the GT Sport and so are automatic high beams. The body lines are flowing and seamless. The dual chrome-tipped exhaust ports are a definite match for this vehicle's turbo-charged purr. There's no need to stop there. There's lots of available options so you can customize your vehicle to the max. With so many style packages to choose from, finding the right 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Sport near Chicago IL is easy.

2018 Hyundai Elantra - Mechanical/Powertrain

The glory of the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Sport lies in its sport-tuned powertrain and suspension. It has a 1.6 Liter, turbo-charged inline 4 that gets 201 horsepower and 195 lb. ft. of torque. The engine is managed by a 6 speed manual transmission and front wheel drive that comes standard on this model. The GT Sport also benefits from having larger brakes, larger wheels and MacPherson struts in the front with a multi-link independent suspension with monotube shocks in the rear. The springs, dampers, and steering gear have also been given a sporting upgrade which can really come in handy on bumpy Chicagoland roads. By the numbers, this is a quick and capable car but the drive experience itself is absolutely transcendent. The turbo power comes in early and strong while the brake pedal feels responsive and reactive. You will certainly feel connected to the road, but you might get the urge to spin out the back end every now and then.

2018 Hyundai Elantra - Safety

This car is equipped with some advanced electronic safety systems. It has traction control, hillstart assist, and electronic stability control. Blind side detection, rear cross traffic alert, and lane change assist are optional on the base model hatchback. Yet, these are standard safety features on the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Sport.
