What’s New on the 2019 Hyundai Elantra GT?

The 2019 Elantra GT’s main trim largely carries over from the previous model year. However, the N Line trim, which replaces the Sport trim, is all-new and offers an array of unique performance-focused features. The suspension and steering are sport-tuned, the chassis has been stiffened, and the brakes are larger. Other highlights include exclusive N Line badging and 18-inch wheels, a leather-wrapped N Line steering wheel, heated N Line leather sport seats, an N Line gearshift, and red interior stitching and accents.

Performance and Efficiency

The 2019 Elantra GT comes with two engine options. The base trim offers a 2.0-liter GDI four-cylinder engine that gets 161 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque. It’s connected to a six-speed automatic transmission with Shiftronic and achieves 27 mpg combined. The N Line carries a 1.6-liter turbo GDI four-cylinder engine that makes 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. Equipped with a six-speed manual transmission, it gets 26 mpg combined. With the available seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, it achieves a combined 28 mpg.
