2017 Hyundai Elantra GT Overview

John Diether
Automotive Editor - October 5, 2016

The sporty relation to Hyundai's popular compact sedan, the Elantra GT provides heightened performance and style along with hatchback utility. You also get access to some of the most advanced infotainment technology in this price class.

What's New for 2017

A new Value Edition package replaces last year's costlier Style package. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are now part of the available Tech package. While the Elantra sedan is all-new this year, the GT is otherwise unchanged.

Choosing Your Hyundai Elantra GT

Every GT gets a 2-liter four-cylinder with 173 horsepower, above-average output for a standard engine in this class. A six-speed manual transmission is also standard, and you can upgrade to a six-speed automatic for $1,000. Expect about 27 mpg in combined driving with either transmission. The steering system gives you a choice of three modes: Normal, Comfort, and Sport.

With the rear seat folded, the GT can hold up to 51 cubic feet of cargo, just a couple of cubes shy of the leaders in this class.

The Elantra GT comes in a single trim level with plenty of standard equipment, including heated mirrors, satellite radio, a cooled glovebox, and Bluetooth phone and audio. The GT rides on 16-inch steel wheels with full covers.

You have a choice of two comprehensive option packages:

  • Value Edition: Adds leather seating and interior trim, heated front seats with driver power, a sport-tuned suspension, fog lamps, keyless access and ignition, automatic headlamps, and 17-inch alloy wheels.
  • Tech: Furnishes a navigation system, HD radio, Hyundai's Blue Link telematics system, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability. You also get ventilated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera, underfloor storage, and aluminum pedals. The Tech package is available on cars equipped with the Value Edition package and automatic transmission.

There are no individual options for the Elantra GT beyond the usual dealer-installed accessories.

CarsDirect Tip

The new Value Edition package can be yours for $1,650 ($325 less than last year's comparable Style package). It certainly delivers a lot of content for the money, and we wouldn't order the Elantra GT without it. The Tech package ($3,600) is also cheaper this year, but still pushes the MSRP to $25,050, which many shoppers will find hard to swallow.
