2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Named Among "Best Compact Cars" by Popular Mechanics
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Jan. 30, 2019 – Popular Mechanics honored the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT with a feature on its “Best Compact Cars” list. Based on the i30 model designed for the European market, Popular Mechanics editors highlighted Hyundai’s attention to handling in its latest models, noting that the Elantra GT’s chassis was developed on the Nürburgring.
The 2018 Elantra GT brings an 8 percent increase in cargo capacity versus the prior generation. It is one of only a few hatchbacks classified by the EPA as a Large Car due to total interior volume eclipsing 120 cubic feet. In fact, Elantra GT has more cargo volume than other hatchbacks such as the Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus, Mazda3, Volkswagen Golf and Toyota Corolla iM. Elantra GT is also a sporty alternative to small CUVs. Elantra GT with the rear seats folded down has more cargo capacity than the Toyota CH-R, Mazda CX-3, Chevrolet Trax and Jeep Renegade.
