2013 Hyundai Elantra GT Pricing: $18,395



Aimed at cars like the Mazda3, Ford Focus and Volkwagen Golf, Hyundai’s 2013 Elantra GT (Grand Touring) is a revised version of the old Elantra Touring form past years.

First seen last February in Chicago, the car offers a button to adjust the steering ratio for more or less precise handling. Further improving that handling, a more sport-oriented suspension steps the car even more away from its utilitarian predecessor to be a car that’s aimed more at a fun driving experience.

With 148 hp, the 1.8-liter four cylinder still manages to get 28 mpg in the city and 39 on the highway. We knew all that already, though, but thanks to a tweet by the company this morning, we now know what the revised car will cost.

Expect to see the 2013 Elantra GT with a starting MSRP of $18,395 (probably before delivery charges), which will include a long list of standard features including 17-inch 16-inch aluminum alloy wheels, seven airbags, heated seats, Blue Link, fog lamps. It will also come with a telescoping tilt wheel with audi controls, a cooled glove box heated side mirrors and more.

The car also boasts 23 cu-ft of cargo space behind the rear seats, with a total of 51 cu-ft when you fold the them flat, which is enough to compete with the likes of the Subaru Impreza or Toyota Matrix.

Opting for the GT will cost you more than the sedan version, though. Without the fifth door, the car start at $16,695, meaning the added rear space comes at a $1,700 premium.

UPDATE June 13: Hyundai’s full list of features is now available. Even at the base MSRP, the car comes very well equipped with standard appointments like heated front seats, a cooled glove box, Hyundai’s Blue Link telematics system a chrome grille and a six-speed manual. The six–speed automatic transmission costs $1,000 more but comes with the comany’s “Active ECO” system to improve fuel economy.

Finally, there are available “style” and “technology” packages that cost $2,750 and $2,350 respectively, though the style package is prerequisite to the tech add-ons.

Although the company suggested through its Twitter account yesterday that 17-inch alloy wheels would be standard, it seems you need to buy the style package to get them. Instead, 16-inch alloy wheels are standard. That package also includes a sport-tuned suspension, leather seats with power controls and adjustable lumbar support for the driver and more.

Bringing the total extra cost to $5,100, the technology package adds fewer features but includes a 7-inch navigation screen that works with a rear-view camera, automatic headlights and dual automatic climate control.

I have to say $18 395 is really good for a car that offers as much as the Elantra GT does. I doubt the same amount of features and options can be had with a comparable Honda, Toyota, Nissan, etc.

Plus it has more space, more than that of a Elantra sedan. Great family car here.
