For the new model year, the Elantra GT is one of the only models not to receive any sort of updates. That might sound like a negative at first, but in truth it just means the Elantra GT wasn’t in need of anything new. It’s fine just the way it is for this year thanks to its recent generational redesign just back in 2018. If you’re in the market for a compact hatchback sedan, look no further than the 2020 Hyundai Elantra GT in Cocoa FL.
In other markets, this hatchback sedan is known as the Hyundai i30. In the model’s second generation, Hyundai decided to bring the vehicle to North America and market it alongside the Elantra model, thus the Elantra GT was born. This occurred during the summer of 2012, making the 2013 model year the first for Elantra GT.
Even though there aren’t any new features for this model year, the Elantra GT introduced a host of outstanding new content when it was redesigned for the 2018 model year. These features are just as exciting today as they were then, and they include a more aggressive European design, more storage space behind the rear seat – close to a full 25 cu. ft. to be more precise, several standard features such as LED daytime running lights and an 8” display audio screen that featured both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus plenty of available features like dual-zone climate control, LED headlights and wireless charging.
Shoppers will still have two different 4-cylinder engine options to choose from when purchasing an Elantra GT as well: a 2.0L capable of generating 162 horsepower or a 1.6L turbocharged option that generates 201 HP. They’ll be able to choose between a 6-speed manual transmission, a 6-speed automatic or a 7-speed dual-clutch, depending on engine. Last year saw the introduction of the Elantra GT N Line, which will still be an incredible trim level option for this model year.
