After teasing us earlier in the week with a bit of info, Hyundai has officially announced full pricing for the 2013 Elantra GT. Buyers can pick up the five-door with a six-speed manual transmission starting at $18,395, excluding a $775 destination fee.

When you intend to go up against cars like the Volkswagen Golf, Ford Focus and Mazda3, it doesn't matter how softly or loudly you speak, your stick had better be impressive. Hyundai believes it has just the thing in the 2013 Elantra GT, which is the updated moniker for the Elantra Touring (and a throwback to five-door Elantras of yore).
