All new 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT


 These are new official teasers for the 2018 Elantra GT.

The Elantra GT is not just a hatchback version of the Elantra. It is, and has been, a US version of the European Hyundai i30. With its own design and interior.

So these teasers are really familiar, since an all new i30 has just been introduced in Europe.

 Here are equivalent pix of the new Euro i30. (except for the stick shift). Exact same car


Again, here is what to expect. 
A nice looking hatchback. But, like other current generation Hyundais, much more conservative looking than the previous one.
This now looks like a Korean copy of the "super sad, serious and boring" Peugeot 308 hatch.

At least the interior is quite modern.

I do like hatchbacks anyway, so the more the better...

Elegant, but unremarkable. If i wanted a tastefully conservative compact, i'd buy a Golf. Again, Hyundai should stick with their bold design language. It's not even a case of "design that ages well", given that their cars usually have a life cycle of 5 years, so they could afford to be more daring.
