Hyundai has entered the hot hatch marketplace with its 2018 Elantra GT. With choice of a 162-HP GT or a 201-HP GT Sport, both with either a 6-speed manual or an automatic transmission, this roomy Euro-design 5-door is a worthy entry.
Priced from $19,350 and with the underpinnings to deliver a high fun-factor the Elantra GT has more room than most other hatchbacks.
I did a bit of road tripping with it. More details are here.
