What Should I Pay

2020 Hyundai Elantra GT video

Just revealed at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, we have here two of Hyundai's newest hatchbacks-- the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT and the Hyundai Elantra GT Sport. Personally I think the car looks great. I wish the GT Sport had a little bit more customization so that the car looked a little bit different. As it is, the only way you can tell between two cars is the bigger wheels, badge on the hatch, and, thankfully, the GT sport has red stitching and red trim pieces on the inside. The GT Sport has a 1.6 liter turbocharged engine, making 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. Six speed manual transmission is standard. That's going to be awesome for people that like to drive. On the regular GT, it comes with a 2.0 liter inline-4 that makes a 162 horsepower, 150 pound-feet of torque. Now that's not a real barnstormer, but the regular GT is just supposed to be a fun car and very practical, too. Both Elantra GTs have fold-down seats and gigantic interior cargo volume. Hyundai thinks that the EPA classification might even be as a large car, so that's pretty crazy for a subcompact like this. But I think one of the cool things lies under the skin. The GT Sport has an independent rear suspension, whereas the regular GT has a torsion link-- a torsion-beam rear suspension. And there's nothing wrong with the torsion-beam suspension. But I think for enthusiasts, having an independent rear suspension should really help the car corner and handle better on the twisty roads. Either way, we think both cars will be tremendously successful for Hyundai. Traditionally, their styling has been going more towards the class-c segment, so it's nice to see some usefulness coming back into the brand. Overall, I can't wait to drive both cars. But personally, my pick goes to the GT Sport. Hyundai says that the cars will be available for sale in the summer of this year. Check back for more information.

Should I lease or buy a 2020 Hyundai Elantra GT?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
