2015 Hyundai Elantra GT Starts at $19,625

The 2015 Hyundai Elantra GT is an affordable hatchback which comes with sporty aspirations. Its standard 2.0-liter direct-injected engine works great with optional sport suspension in order to provide aggressive and entertaining feel. This car can have surprising vivacity and dynamics. The five-door hatchback with a promising name hasn’t suffered radical changes, since the 2014 model year has been updated. After the mid-cycle update, there isn’t much the automaker can do until the next-generation. Although the 2015 Elantra GT carries over all the features of the 2014 model year, the automaker decreased the price of the Tech Package. However, the pricing of the 2015 Elantra GT starts at $18,800 without $825 destination fee.
