2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Review

Good cars only matter if people are paying attention.

With the general public so distracted by crossovers, compacts of every description are rapidly dropping below the radar. Nowhere is this truer than with the humble hatchback, a body style just as practical as the crossovers that have stalled their sales momentum, but one that lacks the now-required tall stance and all-wheel-drive combo of their popular rivals.

Into this maelstrom of auto apathy steps the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT, a five-door model that shares its name with the Korean brandís excellent entry-level sedan, despite riding on a completely different platform. You see, the GT is no long-roof Elantra, but rather an import of Hyundaiís Euro-focused i30 hatch, making it more sibling than fraternal twin.

Does this detract at all from what the Elantra GT has to offer? Absolutely not, but it should inform expectations about what kind of driving experience the hatch has to offer, especially when comparing its top-tier Sport trim against that of its sedan counterpart.

Man, they really ruined the GT this time. Looks just like a Forte HB with an uglier front cap. No thank you.

And the Elantra use to be a "happy" car with the front style of the smiling grill. Why is every car company trying to go with the stupid and goofy big grill crap like Lexus. To me the Lexus front end is horrendous.
