2019 Hyundai Elantra GT Specs, Release Dates, Prices

Complementing the performance of Elantra GT is the announcement of the new 2019 Hyundai Elantra GT N Line trim. The Elantra GT N Line is the first N Line model for the United States from Hyundai. N Line trims add sporty design elements and refined powertrain/chassis upgrades to existing Hyundai products. N Line is part of Hyundai’s ‘N’ product portfolio that includes the brand’s growing ultimate ‘N’ range of vehicles (Veloster N, i30 N, i30 Fastback N). The 2019 Elantra GT N Line replaces the 2018 Elantra GT Sport and signals more N Line models to come on future Hyundai products. Elantra GT N Line and the 2019 Elantra GT are on sale now.

The 2019 Hyundai Elantra GT continues to bring increased utility and enhanced driving dynamics to the compact hatchback segment. Elantra GT and the new N Line trim are poised to compete head-on with hatchback competitors and provide a fun-to-drive alternative to small CUV. Elantra GT is the best of both worlds.

NEW FOR 2019:

  • New Elantra GT N Line added to the lineup

  • Elantra GT Sport is dropped from the lineup (replaced by the Elantra GT N Line)

  • The entry-level Elantra GT is a carryover model

  • Panoramic sunroof and leather seating surfaces added to 2019 Elantra GT Style Package

DESIGN ELEMENTS

The 2019 Hyundai Elantra GT takes eye-catching design elements directly from the i30 N. At the front, the Elantra GT N Line has a lower front spoiler for increased aerodynamic efficiency and a unique N Line version of Hyundai’s Cascading Grille with a distinctive silver character line. At the side, blacked out side mirrors with turn signals, N Line badging, N Line 18-inch wheels and Michelin Pilot Sport 4 225/40 R18 summer tires change the profile of the car (summer tires are only available with the manual transmission). At the rear, the unique bumper fascia further accentuates the N theme. Standard interior trim for the Elantra GT N Line includes:

  • Unique leather-wrapped perforated N steering wheel with metallic spokes

  • N Line leather sport seats with N logo

  • N Line gearshift features sporty metal accents and leather inserts

  • A sporty instrument cluster and instrument panel accents

  • Red stitching and accents differentiate the N Line from the standard Elantra GT

The N Line sports seats feature heated leather seating surfaces, N logos and red contrast stitching and side bolsters. They also keep the driver comfortable with power lumbar support and extendable seat cushions.

POWERTRAIN

As with the exterior and interior, the driving experience has been further enhanced for N Line duty with new suspension and steering tuning, revised powertrain mounts and summer tires. Additionally, Elantra GT N Line’s multi-link independent rear suspension with larger front and rear brake rotors improves noise, vibration harshness and driving performance.

The 2019 Hyundai Elantra GT N Line includes a 1.6-liter turbocharged-GDI engine with six-speed manual transmission or an optional seven-speed DCT with larger steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. This drivetrain produces 201 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. torque to meet performance and fuel efficiency needs.
