Hyundai gives a glimpse of upcoming 2018 Elantra GT

Two years ago, we got a look at the US only Hyundai Elantra GT Sports during the 2015 Chicago Auto Show. Fast forward to 2017, Hyundai is back with the 2018 Elantra GT.

Hyundai released teaser photos along with a video of the 2018 Elantra GT. The photos show us the grille, steering wheel, engine start button, and shifter.

Upon closer inspection you can see the red accents on the steering wheel, start button along with the red stitching on the shifter. This would lead people to believe they are making a sport model for this upcoming Elantra GT.

The new Elantra GT will apparently be based off the European-spec Hyundai i30, which initially debuted in Paris of 2016.
