2013 Hyundai Elantra GT

Hyundai announces pricing for 2013 Elantra GT

The tiny little powerhouse of hatchback fun, the Hyundai Elantra GT, has been priced at well under $19,000 and outperforms the competition Focus, Mazda3, and Golf in both price and versatility.

The fun little Hyundai Elantra GT just got better with one more "best-in-class" added to its long list of bests. The subcompact five-door already has class-leading fuel economy and specific output at 39mpg highway and 82.2 horsepower per liter (total of 148). It also beats the Ford Focus, Mazda3, Volkswagen Golf, and Toyota Matrix in passenger and maximum cargo volume and has better aerodynamics than the Subaru Impreza, Toyota Matrix, or VW Golf.

So what could the Elantra GT possibly add to this list of bests? How about a price tag well under $19,000?

Beginning MSRP for the Elantra GT in 6-speed manual transmission is $18,395 plus destination and upgrading that to the convenience of an automatic while retaining all of the fun driver control options, thanks to Hyundai's 6-speed automatic with SHIFTRONIC®, brings the MSRP to only $19,395 plus destination.

The lightest five-door hatchback in this segment, the Elantra GT has sport-tuned suspension, heated front seats as standard, a driver knee airbag, an optional rear camera, and an advanced 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine. The Elantra GT is available as a PZEV and ULEV.

Needs the 2.0 Turbo with 274HP from the Sonata. That would be a rocket!
True, but then it would probably be a literal rocket with all that lift. lmao
