2013 Hyundai Elantra GT, Chicago Auto Show, Feb 2012
The 2012 Hyundai Elantra sedan nabbed a 40-mpg EPA rating, backed up by some real-world results
, and it's also the North American Car of the Year
. Now it has a pair of siblings: the 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT and Elantra Coupe, unveiled today at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show.
The Elantra GT is the hatchback version of the Elantra, combining the style and efficiency of the Elantra sedan with the practicality and space of a roomier cargo area.
Rated at 28 mpg city and 39 mpg highway with its 1.8-liter four-cylinder and the manual transmission, it isn't far off the mark set by the sedan, either--all while providing more interior space than the Toyota Matrix, Volkswagen Golf, Mazda3, or Ford Focus, and more cargo space than the Nissan Juke.
We'll have the full details on the 2013 Elantra GT soon, but in the mean time, enjoy this gallery of photos from the floor of the Chicago Auto Show.
