What year was the first Hyundai Elantra GT?

When did Hyundai start making the Elantra GT? I get so confused by the different names of trims and I’m not sure if the GT has been around for a while or if it’s brand new.

The first Hyundai Elantra GT was produced for the 2012 model year. While the Elantra was first manufactured in 1990 and some models had the same features and hatchback style as the GT model, the car was not officially labeled with the GT trim level.
However, the Elantra GT has since been discontinued in the US. While the Elantra GT is a decent car, it wasn’t as popular as other Hyundai models in the United States. As of the 2021 model year, Hyundai stopped selling the Elantra GT in the US.
