The new-for-2013 Hyundai Elantra GT hatchback is a stylish, fuel-sipping, nimble car with surprisingly quiet interior and luxury touches that include a huge panoramic sunroof and a sliding center armrest.
Despite the name, though, this new Hyundai is not that much of a GT, or Grand Tourer, in performance.
In fact, the Elantra GT has the same 148-horsepower, naturally aspirated, four-cylinder engine that's in the 2013 Elantra sedan.
This powerplant helps account for the Elantra GT's notable federal government fuel economy rating of 28 miles per gallon in city driving and 39 mpg on the highway for an automatic transmission model. These numbers are near the top mileage ratings among gasoline-only-powered, five-door hatchbacks.
Best of all, the new Elantra GT, like all Hyundais, comes with a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty and a limited, bumper-to-bumper warranty for 5 years/60,000 miles.
Hatchbacks typically are priced higher than their sedan siblings, and the Elantra GT five-door is no exception.
