There's no denying it: hatchbacks are making a comeback. Their practical dimensions and competitive efficiency make them an ideal choice for people who need versatility on-the-go. Our Hyundai dealer in Post Falls lined up the Elantra GT next to models from Volkswagen and Mazda to show you how our favorite hatchback competes against other industry favorites. Let us give you the details!

As always, you can count on the Hyundai to have the advantage. When we put the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Sport against the 2018 Volkswagen Golf TSI SE and the 2018 Mazda3 5-Door Sport, the Hyundai reliably came out on top for a number of categories that are so important to why shoppers want a 5-door model in the first place. The most important, of course, is cargo room. The 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT has 25 cubic feet of space, besting the Golf's 23 and the Mazda3's 20. This leaves more room for what you want to take along with you on the road. The point of hatchbacks are to offer versatility, and it starts with what you can fit in the trunk!

A Convenient Choice for Post Falls Hyundai Shoppers

What's under the hood of this model is just as compelling as what you can fit into it. The 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT offers more horsepower and torque than its competitors, creating a more dynamic drive. Its 1.6L turbocharged four-cylinder engine jumps to 201 horsepower, so not only will you be counted on to help everyone when they need to move their stuff around, but you'll enjoy doing it.

There's also the question of comfort. In the 2018 Elantra GT, it's not in question at all. Standard leather seating and automatic dual zone climate change set the stage for an accommodating and comfortable ride no matter the weather, and these features aren't even available on the Golf or Mazda3.

To experience a hatchback that's on the top of its game, visit Midway Hyundai today and take a test drive of the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT! This compelling ride couples beautifully with versatility for an enjoyable drive, every time.
