Hyundai Elantra GT Is Saying Goodbye To U.S.A

Author: |

Hyundai will not offer the Hyundai Elantra GT and Elantra GT N Line in the United States. The decision made after the automaker received an unsatisfying sales number from two models. Hyundai wants to replace Elantra GT with SUVs like Hyundai Venue and Hyundai Kona.

While the regular Elantra will remain in the market, Hyundai announced that the GT model sale dropped from 241k to 175k between 2015 and 2019.

Hyundai Elantra GT uses a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine under the hood with 161 hp and 203 nm of torque. The engine torque is sent to front wheels via 6-speed manual transmission.

The Elantra GT N Line is equipped with a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 201 hp and 164 nm of torque. The force induction engine is connected to 6-speed manual transmission as standard and optional 7-speed DCT transmission.

The regular Elantra has less power than both GT models. It has a 2.0-liter engine under the hood with 147 hp and 179 nm of torque. There is also a hybrid version available with 139 hp.
