Pricing for the 2019 Elantra GT kicks off at $20,450, making it more expensive than the previous year model by $1,100. But the manual gearbox is no longer available so the Elantra GT is just $100 more expensive than last year’s automatic option. It pairs a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated engine developing 161 hp to a six-speed automatic gearbox and front-wheel drive, and comes standard with cloth upholstery. Replacing the GT Sport for 2019, the Hyundai Elantra GT N Line comes with a base MSRP of $23,300 with a six-speed manual transmission and a 201-hp turbocharged engine. Equipping the available seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox increases the MSRP to $24,400. Crucially, the upgrade to N Line equips independent rear suspension, enhanced suspension tuning, revised steering, and larger brakes, along with an upgraded interior and sporty exterior styling cues. All models are subject to an $885 freight charge.
In its cheapest configuration, the base Elantra GT will set you back $20,450, equipped with a 161-hp 2.0-liter engine and a six-speed automatic gearbox. It gets cloth upholstery, air conditioning, and an eight-inch touchscreen radio system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality.
Meanwhile the pricier of the two trims is the new-for-2019 Elantra GT N Line, starting off at $23,300 and featuring a 201 hp 1.6-liter turbo motor, six-speed manual transmission, independent rear suspension, sport suspension tuning, sport steering, and larger brakes. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is also available on the N Line, but will set you back an additional $1,100 and removes Michelin Pilot Sport summer tires from the offering.
