If you're curious to know what else this hatchback has to offer, check out this 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT review from the team here at Peacock Hyundai Brunswick.  

Hyundai Elantra GT Safety Technology

We know that local drivers take road safety very seriously, so we were happy to see that the Hyundai Elantra GT was named a 2018 Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).1 Not only did it receive top marks for its crashworthiness, it also scored high for its available Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) system.

AEB continuously scans for hazards up ahead. If detected, it issues an alert and charges the brakes for emergency stopping. This system will also bring your car to a full stop if necessary to help mitigate a forward collision.

 The IIHS also liked the available High Beam Assist feature. This system automatically toggles your high beams off when they detect oncoming traffic. It toggles them back on once the oncoming car has passed. This feature allows you to focus more of your attention on navigating dark roadways, and less on adjusting your high beams.

One of our favorite safety features this hatchback offers is the Driver Attention Alert system. If you're exhibiting erratic or unusual driving patterns, this system will issue an alert that you may be too drowsy to drive and would benefit from taking a break from behind the wheel.

Elantra GT Powertrain

The 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT offers drivers several different powertrain options to suit their needs. You'll have your choice among three different transmissions, depending on your engine:

6-Speed Manual Transmission: A manual transmission comes standard and provides ultimate control over your driving experience.

6-Speed Automatic Transmission with SHIFTRONIC®: With this transmission, you'll get the smooth shifting and efficiency of an automatic while still having the option to shift on-command in a limited manual mode when desired. This is available with the 2.0L I-4 engine that generates 161 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque.

7-Speed Dual Clutch Transmission with Paddle Shifters: This transmission is available with the sporty 2.0L turbocharged I-4 that delivers 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. It monitors your driving and automatically shifts as necessary for optimized performance. With steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, you're still free to manually shift up and down. This transmission has an additional upper gear for effortless highway cruising, making it the most fuel-efficient transmission option available.

 All engines are paired with a lightweight front-wheel drivetrain, giving this fuel-sipping hatchback an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 22-26 MPG city and 29-32 MPG highway.2
