Review: 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Sport Ultimate – Part 5

So I’ve come to the end of my week long review of the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Sport Ultimate. It’s main competitor is the Volkswagen GTI, but you could toss the Ford Focus ST and perhaps the Honda Sport Touring Hatchback into the mix as well. But I believe that the Elantra GT Sport Ultimate best defines what a hot hatch is. It has a lot of go and it’s easy to live with as a daily driver. Add to that the slick transmission, the technology that’s included, and the styling that is very Euro hatchback makes the Elantra GT Sport Ultimate a winner in my books.

My final fuel economy was 7.8 L/100KM’s which is pretty impressive considering that I made liberal use of the 1.6L turbo and sport mode while driving in a mix of city roads and highways, not to mention rush hour traffic.

You can expect to pay $30,499 for the trim level that I drove this week. But you can get a Elantra GT Sport starting at $26,999 with a manual transmission. Quite simply, it lives up to its hot hatch label. If you’re in the market for this sort of vehicle, head to your nearest Hyundai dealer and test drive one. I guarantee you that you will not be disappointed.
