The 2015 Chicago Auto Show has seen the debut of an updated version of the Hyundai Elantra GT, as the model in question will be going on sale across the nation starting from next month.
The 2016 Hyundai Elantra GT has received a series of updates which will help it stand out from the crowd. The model in question is bringing a new front grille, a more distinctive front fascia, brand new 17-inch alloy wheels and several other tweaks, including the body side graphic with a chrome beltline molding, the sharp projector headlights, the LED taillights and so on.
The updated Hyundai Elantra GT has been made using high strength steel and the result is a lower curb weight. The interior design of the car has been mostly carried over but it does include some new optional ventilated front seats, an improved infotainment system with Siri and HD Radio, the optional Blue Link system with Remote Start and Climate Control and with the Destination Search by Google. The vehicle can comfortably seat five people and it has “CUV-sized cargo space”, as the company is saying.
Some of the other goodies found in the cabin include the central console storage, sliding armrest, door bottle holders, two front and two rear cup holders, sunglasses holder, cooled glove compartment, front seatback pockets, a 12-volt outlet in the cargo area and so on. Power is coming from a 2.0 liter four-cylinder unit, with 173 HP (129 kW) and 208 Nm (154 lb-ft) of torque, connected to a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic. Prices for the model will begin from 18,800 USD, without the 825 USD destination charge.
