The Elantra GT utilizes a 148 horsepower 1.8-liter four-cylinder to power the front wheels through a six-speed manual, or six-speed automatic transmission. Safety features includes a driver's side knee airbag - a first for Elantra. Traction and stability control augment the 4-wheel anti-lock brakes. Luxury items such as panoramic sunroof, power heated leather seats, cooled glovebox, navigation system, and more are available.
The Elantra GT is all-new for 2013. It replaces the Elantra Touring.
