For the 2013 model year, Hyundai expands its model lineup of its bestselling Elantra line by adding a GT hatchback to enhance its versatility and functionality.  This new model should increase its sales capability by giving consumers more of what they want in a compact five door hatchback sedan.  I tested and photographed the new car and enjoyed the ride, it interior accruements and its new versatility and functionality.  It has stiff competition in the hot-selling compact five-door hatchback niche from the Toyota Matrix, Mazda3, Ford Focus, Subaru Impreza and VW Golf.  This new model should stand out from the rest with its fresh new looks, its adequate power and excellent fuel efficiency, its sport-tuned suspension, with a finely crafted and versatile interior plus a long list of safety systems.

The styling of the new Elantra GT is sleek and aggressive utilizing Hyundai’s ‘Fluidic Sculpture’ DNA.  Up front is Hyundai’s signature hexagonal grille with chrome accents that flows into the hood, and its lower air-intake with L-shaped foglamps.  The side shows steeply raked A-pillars, a chrome beltline molding, aero-styled sideview mirrors, a character line that runs from the flared front up, through the pull-out door handles, and over the rear fenders.  The deep side extensions lowers the look for a more aggressive stance.  The rear features large, wraparound triangular lamp clusters, a spoiler set atop the wide hatchback and a flat bumper with a black contrasting diffuser.  My Elantra GT came equipped with the optional 17X7 inch aluminum alloy wheels wrapped with 215/45R17 inch low-profile performance tires that filled the fenders wells.  The Elantra GT slips through the air with a low 0.30 co-efficient of drag that increases fuel economy and lessons wind noise.

The use of high-strength steel provides a 37% increase body stiffness and the roof in my Elantra GT features a panoramic sunroof so it is completely made of glass which lightens the curb weight even more.  High strength steel allows the suspension to work optimally and at 2,784 pounds with the six-speed automatic the Elantra GT is lighter than its competitors while offering more interior room than Focus, Mazda3, Golf and Matrix.  This weight-efficient unibody structure enables the Elantra GT to achieve and estimated 37mpg/highway rating.

The new Elantra GT is powered by a 1.8 liter Nu four-cylinder engine generating 148 hp at 6,500rpm and 131lb.ft. of torque at 4,700rpm.  The Nu engine features an aluminum cylinder head, crank and block with a cast iron liner.  The engine also features dual continuously variable valve timing (D-CVVT) camshafts and hydraulic engine mounts for optimum power, efficiency and refinement.  Using D-CVVT on both camshafts has several advantages when compared with using it just on the intake camshaft.  With D-CVVT, there is a 2% improvement in performance (increased volumetric efficiency), a 2% improvement in fuel economy (reducing pumping loss) and a 30% reduction in hydrocarbon emissions-according to Hyundai.  In the valvetrain, roller swing arms and hydraulic lash adjusters reduce valve driven friction to improve fuel economy by 1%, compared with direct valve driving.  The engine also features an offset crankshaft design that reduces friction between the piston and cylinder wall for a 1% improvement in fuel economy.  The Nu engine also features a maintenance-free silent timing chain system to minimize noise, vibration and harshness (NVH).  The use of a composite resin two-stage variable intake system (VIS) versus aluminum, enables switching between long and short intake manifolds, resulting in a 4% improvement in performance, a 15% reduction in cost and a 30% reduction in weight.  When you push the start/stop button to fire up the engine it is super quiet, smooth and high-revving.  Finally, the Nu engine features an electronic throttle for faster responding electronics and accurately controlling air intake and engine torque, improving drivability, response and fuel economy.  This potent small engine gives you all the power you would need in the real world while giving back excellent fuel economy.

It is mated to either a six-speed manual transmission providing short, crisp shifts with triple-cone synchronizers for 1st. and 2nd gears, plus double-cone for 3rd. gear and single-cone for 4th, 5th, and 6th gears for precise gearing and quick shifts.  My Elantra GT came equipped with the six-speed automatic transaxle with SHIFTRONIC manual control.  While I had fun using the SHIFTONIC manual control to hold each gear as I wanted, the transmission in automatic mode had a tall 4.40 1st. gear ratio that gave me fast getaways from stop lights and stop signs.  This smooth shifting automatic gave me the best of both worlds as I achieved a combined city/highway fuel economy rating of 31.6 mpg after my test drive.  That was divided by driving in slow city traffic and at 70 mph+ on the highway.

My Elantra GT came with a sport-tuned MacPherson strut front setup with coil springs, twin-tube gas-charged shocks and a 22mm stabilizer bar which helped reduce body roll when cornering at high speeds onto or off of highway cloverleafs.  The rear setup is a torsion beam with coil springs and gas-charged shocks.  The sport-tuned suspension includes higher rate rear springs, a stiffer twist beam and Sachs shocks for improved body motion control.  The suspension gave me a more dynamic driving experience both sporty and comfortable when driving on poorly paved roads.  The transition from one type of surface to another was imperceptible. The GT’s sport-tuned suspension has a sportier calibration that is optimized for its lower-profile 215/45R17 inch tires.

Guiding the new Elantra GT through its paces is unique.  The rack & pinion steering is assisted with Hyundai’s Motor Driven Power Steering system with a Driver Selectable Steering Mode.  With three operating modes to select-Comfort/Normal/Sport by pushing a button on the steering wheel and selecting which one on the center of the cluster, this innovative system allows you to adapt Elantra GT steering characteristics to varying driving preferences and road conditions any time you choose.  Comfort level offers the greatest ease of steering and is ideal for city and parking times.  Sport is optimized for higher-speed highways or winding roads, while Normal is ideal for a mix of driving conditions.  The driver selectable steering mode not only adjusts power assistance levels in each mode, but also on-center buildup and steering buildup curves throughout the steering range for a very nature, progressive feel.  Steering damping characteristics, active return gain, and high frequency friction levels have also been optimized for Elantra GT.  I kept the steering selection in the Sport mode and really enjoyed the car’s accurate handling response.

Quickly and safely slowing the new Elantra GT down from speed are power-assisted, four-wheel disc brakes.  Up front are 11 inch vented discs clamped with dual-piston calipers and 10.3 inch solid discs clamped with single-piston calipers in the rear.  Increasing the braking performance and control are standard ABS, BA, EBD and electronic stability control all working together to keep you in control during all driving situations.  I don’t know how Hyundai does it but all of the mechanical systems worked so well together that driving the car was fun and very enjoyable in all manners and situations.

The interior matches the mechanicals with comfort, space, attention to detail, quality materials, versatility, contemporary auto and personal infotainment and safety systems.  The dual-cockpit layout is excellent with a sporty steering wheel coming standard in the GT with its soft, grippy leather and tilt and telescoping function to achieve the perfect angle and reach for optimum comfort and control.

Straight ahead is the rallye style gauges trimmed in metallic as is the center stack, air vents, center console and door trim.  The dual cupholder are also ringed in metallic trim.  Attention to detail is seen with the tight tolerances all around especially where the windshield meets the headliner so nicely tucked in.  All of the cabin refinements are inspired by the high standards of the entire Hyundai lineup.  Located in the center of the stack is the optional navigation system that is displayed via a seven-inch touch screen and incorporates the rearview camera screen.  This camera is like no other in that it is hidden behind the Hyundai flying H badge on the rear hatch and only appears when needed.  Dual-zone climate controls are easy to use and the optional panoramic sunroof with electric operating curtain provides natural light inside.  The dual climate controls also incorporate an automatic defogging system which detects humidity levels using a sensor and removes it from the windshield.  Another premium feature is a CleanAir ionizer that automatically cleans the air when the heater or A/C is turned on.  The GT comes standard with a 172-watt AM-FM-Satellite radio/CD/MP3 audio system with six-speakers and iPod/USB/auxiliary input jacks.  A Bluetooth interface is also standard.  The sound system plays compact discs, accesses digital music files via Bluetooth streaming audio or allows you and your passengers to access their personal listening devices through the iPod/USB/auxiliary inputs.  The Sirius satellite radio interface is also integrated into the navigation unit and features channel logos, real-time NavTraffic and Data services such as NavWeather, Stock Ticker and Sports Ticker.  You can even upload personal pictures from a USB rather than a CD to be displayed on the system’s home screen.  More standard features not mentioned above incudes standard cooled glove box, standard heated front seats, 10-way power driver’s seat with power lumbar support, clean air ionizer, leather seating surfaces, alloy foot pedals, dual map lamps, sunglass holder, leather wrapped shift knob, dual lighted vanity mirrors, deep and wide storage box with a padded armrest, automatic headlights, standard steering wheel mounted audio and cruise control buttons, grab handles above each passenger door, storage pockets in each door, and in front of the center console, remote keyless entry, power windows/door locks with driver-side express up/down, 60/40 split folding rear seat with pull-down dual cupholder/armrest, front/rear door map pockets and variable speed wipers/washers and rear wiper/washer.

Maximizing interior volume and delighting customers with various seating layouts is what this new Elantra GT does.  It features seating layouts that can comfortable seat five people or accommodate four passengers plus long items like golf clubs or snowboards.  Fold down two seats, to seat three people and hold larger packages or fold all of the back seats to get CUV-sized cargo space.  This is enabled by the fold-flat rear seats and rear seat cushions that can be flipped upward.  There is also a cargo area under-floor storage to extra security and a 12-volt outlet for using portable electronic devices.  My GT also came with a cargo cover to further ensure security of cargo and thick front/rear floor mats.

Standard safety features include driver knee/front/side impact airbags, side-curtain airbags, three-point safety belts for all seating positions with front pretensioners/load limiters, tire pressure monitoring system, trip computer with readouts between the gauge cluster, LATCH system for child seats, front/rear crumple zones and steel beams in each door.

This new 2013 Elantra GT has it all to keep young active singles, couples and families coming into Hyundai showrooms to check out one of the best in this fast growing niche segment of the compact sedan market.  It has also carries a low base price starting at $19,395.00.  My loaded model was priced at $25,365.00 including destination charges.

2013 Hyundai Elantra GT Hatchback Review & Test Drive 28
Dec
Posted by Malcolm Hogan in 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT, Automotive, featured, Hyundai, Hyundai Elantra, Test Drives on 12 28th, 2012

For the 2013 model year, Hyundai expands on its Elantra lineup with a GT hatchback model alongside of a new Coupe to build upon the Elantra sedan’s astounding recognition in holding the 2012 North American Car of the Year crown. The all-new 2013 Elantra GT hatchback steps up the compact car game to give consumers the most bang for their buck in a versatile, sporty and economical package.

The new 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT makes use of the additional ‘hatchback’ and cargo space without diminishing the rewarded styling attributes and economical drivetrain of the Elantra sedan. The new Elantra GT, adding even more entertainment value to the equation, utilizes the same 1.8-liter 148 horsepower and 131 ft-lbs. of torque 4-cylinder engine. Enthusiasts will be pleased to know that the Elantra GT comes standard with a 6-speed manual transmission, but can be optioned with a quick-shifting 6-speed automatic.

Driving characteristics of the Elantra GT are surprisingly nimble for a vehicle having a conservative horsepower figure on paper. The sporty handling characteristics of my loaded up Elantra GT with the Style and Tech packages, are somewhat evocative of much more powerful hatchbacks targeting a large enthusiast base. In a way, the new Elantra GT hatchback drives and handles like it could easily adapt to a much more powerful drivetrain without breaking a sweat. Though, you will suffer the wrath of Mr. Understeer should you find yourself crossing that fine line of being an outright hoon with the Elantra GT hatchback.

Sharing virtually the same engine and transmission as the Elantra sedan and coupe, with the same gear ratios, the 2013 Elantra GT has a sportier attitude and feels more agile when pushed near its lateral limits. I wouldn’t go as far as to say the Elantra GT is a pocket-rocket or in anyway poised for an autocross competition, but it has certainly added some ‘virtual’ enthusiasm to the Elantra line.

Hyundai’s choice for using the same powertrain throughout the Elantra line of new vehicles becomes crystal clear in knowing that you get a respectable amount of power output -yet you can consistently get well-over 30 mpg around town. During my time in the new 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT hatchback I saw a steady 36 mpg on the highway and about 27 mpg in town. The EPA estimates for the new Elantra GT are 26 mpg city and 37 mpg highway.

Surprisingly enough, being that the Elantra Sedan has a spacious interior almost reaching that of a mid-sized sedan, the Elantra GT scales things down a bit on the outside with a shortened wheelbase and over-all vehicle length. Visually, the Elantra GT does not appear to be much smaller than the Elantra sedan, but has, in fact, about 9 inches less in vehicle length and two inches shorter wheelbase. Those dimensions stand without compromising much seating area, too.

Front heated seats, heated mirrors, a/c cooling in the glove box, fog lights, USB connectivity, aux input, 16-inch aluminum wheels, driver-selectable steering modes (comfort, normal, sport) and Hyundai’s Blue Link telematics are just some of the highlighted standard features included on the new Elantra GT. Further setting the new Elantra GT apart from its mainstream competition is up to 51 cubic feet of available cargo space when the rear seats are folded down.

Seats in the new Elantra GT hatchback are comparable to the Elantra sedan providing just enough bolstering to keep you planted and comfortable enough for long hauls.

Interior space is not diminished despite shorter exterior dimensions in the Elantra GT when compared to the sedan. Moreover, ride quality is still good considering the use of new sachs dampers. Adding a performance-oriented Style package takes the suspension to a new level with increased spring rates giving the Elantra GT a sporty ride coupled with larger 17-inch wheels. My 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT test vehicle came equipped with the Style package and Tech package adding leather seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, double-panel sunroof, power driver’s seat, aluminum pedals, auto up-down driver’s window control, navigation system, rearview camera (hidden behind a motorized Hyundai logo on the rear hatch), auto headlights, auto climate control and keyless/proximity key with push-button start.

Versatility is an expected uncompromised trait of the traditional hatchback and the new Elantra GT does not disappoint in this aspect. Interior seating area in the Elantra GT hatchback is about the same as the sedan with the major interior volume difference being in the cargo space. The Elantra GT comes with 60/40 split rear seatbacks to fold down for the need to expand on cargo room in the rear. The Elantra GT, with a slightly smaller wheelbase and length dimensions, manages to serve up more cargo area than its competition. There is even a separate, but shallow, storage bin under the cargo area floor.

Hyundai continues to impress not just with a nameplate that has received new-found recognition in America, but with new extensions of current products that tend to exceed expectations. The all-new 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT hatchback is no exception to exceeding my expectations in an affordable 5-door hatchback considering it blends well into the DNA of light-hearted enthusiasts. The new 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT hatchback, with a starting price of $18,395 for a 6-speed manual equipped vehicle, is an eagerly awaiting prize for consumers seeking exceptional style, sportiness and value wrapped up in a versatile and well-equipped package.

Bisimoto Builds Hyundai A 600 Horsepower Elantra GT For SEMA 24
Oct
Posted by Kurt Ernst in 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT, auto show, Automotive, Hyundai, Kurt, SEMA, Tuners on 10 24th, 2012

Bisimoto Engineering’s Hyundai Elantra GT

If we had to pick a favorite front-wheel-drive Hyundai model, chances are good the nod would go to the new Elantra GT, Hyundai’s answer to the Mazda3 and VW Golf. It’s got plenty of room inside, handles impressively well for a non-hot hatch and gives buyers a surprising amount of luxury at a bargain basement price. While the 148 horsepower cranked out by the GT’s 1.8-liter four is enough for commuting duties, it really isn’t enough to provide solid entertainment value.

Enter Bisimoto Engineering, a California tuner that will soon be answering the question, “exactly how much horsepower CAN you get from Hyundai’s 1.8-liter Nu four cylinder?” For SEMA 2012, Bisimoto is building an Elantra GT that promises to deliver 600+ horsepower, which works out to be a truly impressive 333 horsepower per liter.

As for the “how” part, Bisimoto will use forged pistons and connecting rods to ensure structural integrity before adding a Turbonetics turbcharger, water-methanol injection and high-pressure fuel injectors. We suspect there’s a high pressure fuel pump delivering that fuel, along with Bisimoto-developed ECU programming.

There are no details on suspension or brake mods, but we suspect the car will ride on coilovers and benefit from a big brake kit, larger wheels and stickier rubber. If there’s a body kit, it’s a tasteful one, even though the paint job is a bit less than subtle.

While a 600 horsepower FWD hatchback is a bit extreme for street use, it’s good to know that tuners can extract that much horsepower from a basic 1.8-liter Hyundai mill. Making a reliable 250 horsepower, then, should be no trouble at all.



Hyundai Expands The 2013 Elantra Lineup – Review 31
Jul
Posted by Kurt Ernst in 2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe, 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT, Automotive, First Drive, Hyundai, Kurt, Test Drives on 07 31st, 2012

2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe

In the not-too-distant past, when friends and relatives asked for a recommendation on affordable but reliable cars, the answer, almost without fail, was “just go buy a Honda Civic.” Today, that answer (for us, anyway) has turned into “just go buy a Hyundai Elantra.” It offers up solid construction, great fuel economy, an unbeatable warranty if something does go wrong, and styling (both inside and out) that’s fresh, not just warmed-over from a few years back.

2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe

If the Elantra had a weakness, it was the lack of diversity across the model range. Only the sedan had been restyled (in “fluidic sculpture” form) in recent years, with the compact Elantra Touring wagon soldiering on from the previous generation. If you wanted a coupe or a hatchback instead of a sedan, you were out of luck, which reduced the appeal of Hyundai’s compact offering to a rather specific demographic.

2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe

Not any more, as Hyundai has recently introduced both an Elantra Coupe and an all-new Elantra hatchback, called the Elantra GT. Both new variants have distinct personalities, and as we all learned from Pulp Fiction, personality goes a long way.

2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe

First, the Elantra Coupe is more than just an Elantra Sedan with two doors lopped off. The styling is a bit more evolved than the sedan, allowing the Coupe to stand on its own, design wise. Compared to the current Honda Civic Coupe, the two-door Elantra offers up a longer wheelbase and a wider track, which contributes to both handling and interior volume. It’s bigger than a Kia Forte Koup inside, too, and actually qualifies as a midsize car by EPA classification.

2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe

Using the same 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine found on other Elantra models, the Elantra Coupe serves up fuel economy rated at 40 mpg highway / 29 mpg city (with the six-speed manual gearbox) or 39 mpg highway and 28 mpg city (with the automatic). With a modest 145 horsepower and 130 pound-feet of torque on tap, the Elantra Coupe is best described as “somewhat sporty,” with the car’s real focus being on economy and value.

2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe

Don’t expect the Elantra Coupe to be a boring ride, however. The car is light, tipping the scales at around 2,800 pounds, which makes it feel livelier than the numbers would indicate and sportier than the Elantra sedan. Opt for the range-topping SE model, and you’ll get a sport-tuned suspension that adds to the entertainment value. With the six-speed manual transmission, the car provides more bang-for-the-buck entertainment than you’d expect in the Elantra Coupe’s price bracket.

2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe

There’s quite a bit of standard and available content, too, including Bluetooth phone integration and audio streaming; navigation; rearview camera; leather seating surfaces; dual-zone climate control with ionization; heated front seats and a power sunroof. Considering that the Elantra Coupe range starts at $18,220 and tops out at $21,520, we’d call that a lot of value for the money.

2013 Hyundai Elantra GT

The real star of the Elantra lineup, in our opinion anyway, is the new Elantra GT. As with the outgoing Elantra Touring model, the Elantra GT is a “world car,” designed to sell in markets around the globe. It comes with slightly updated fluidic sculpture styling, which gives the car a more contemporary look than most hatchback competitors. We’d say that the car’s looks alone will draw buyers, and it only gets better when you climb behind the wheel.

2013 Hyundai Elantra GT

The Elantra GT makes due with the same 1.8-liter Nu engine found throughout the Elantra lineup, but it manages to feel more engaging in the GT. The car’s weight isn’t significantly different from the Coupe, and both share the same gear ratios, yet the GT somehow feels stronger and sportier. Perhaps its the car’s Sachs dampers, or the adjustable ratio steering, but the new Elantra GT clearly punches above its weight in bang-for-the-buck entertainment value. We wouldn’t expect it to beat a Fiat 500 Abarth in an autocross, but it will still put a smile on your face and is a more practical daily driver.

2013 Hyundai Elantra GT

Even fuel economy remains impressive, with the GT delivering 39 mpg highway and 28 mpg city, regardless of transmission choice. Buy it for fuel economy, and you get the added benefit of its entertainment value. Buy it for its fun factor, and you get the benefit of the car’s fuel economy; for compact hatch shoppers, it’s a win-win scenario.

2013 Hyundai Elantra GT

Inside, the Elantra GT steps up its game with available features like a cooled glove box, a power-adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support, a panoramic sunroof, navigation, Hyundai’s Blue Link telematics system, leather upholstery and dual-zone automatic climate control with ionization. Pricing starts at $19,170 for the base model with a manual transmission, and tops out at $25,270 for an Elantra GT with the automatic transmission, Style package and Tech package. Given the level of content included, we’d call that a serious bargain.
