Bug/Wind Deflector

Hey everyone,

I usually buy a bug/wind deflector for my cars and was looking around, but I can't seem to find anyone that sells it for the GT model (or at least lists it as fitting the GT) and was wondering if any of you have bought one for yours? How does it look on the car? Thanks!

BTW don't forget to check your local auto parts store to see if they have an aftermarket deflector, it might be much cheaper than the OEM one and still work just as good. Also check online..... CarID is a great place.

i'm not a big fan of bug deflectors. just wrap the hood with 3m ventureshield paint protection.

Elantra GT and Elantra share a front clip. Any deflector fitting elantra will fit the sedan, coupe or GT model...

the design is similar but still different, different enough that something like a bug deflector will be specific to each model. just look at each front end:

Elantra GT:


Elantra Sedan:

actually i dont think the Elantra gt will be able to have deflector. They mount up under the hood, the elantra GT hood doesnt start flush at the front.

final answer?

Does anyone know the final call on this deflector thing?

There are several for sale (including on amazon), but I have yet to see a picture of the deflector mounted on the 2013 GT.

Thanks.
