Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Choosing Your Hyundai Elantra GT

Hyundai offers the front-wheel drive Elantra GT in base and Sport trims. Each trim has its own engine unique. Thanks to the five-door design, you’ll find 24.9 cubic feet of storage space or 55.1 cubic feet with the rear seat folded.

A 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is standard, generating 161 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque. This engine comes with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. Elantra GT Sport models, like the Elantra Sport sedan, have a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. Besides the six-speed manual gearbox, this engine may be paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The turbo engine is not just more powerful, but it is also the more efficient one of the two, delivering 26 mpg in the city, 32 mpg highway, and 28 mpg combined. Choose the standard engine and this model makes 24 mpg in the city, 32 mpg highway, and 27 mpg combined according to the EPA.

With manual transmission models, customers need only pick an interior and exterior color – there are no additional options.

GT Base

Starting at $20,235 (including an $885 destination charge), this grade includes automatic headlight control, 17-inch alloy wheels, power-heated side mirrors, keyless entry, full power accessories, a tilt-and-telescopic steering column, and cloth seats. Choose the base model with the automatic transmission (a $1,000 upgrade) and you’ll find Style ($1,800) and Tech ($4,300) Packages. The Style Package adds proximity access with push-button start, a power driver’s seat with lumbar support, heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, and blind spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert and lane change assist. The Style Package is a prerequisite for the Tech Package, which softens the blow of its high price somewhat. This package adds more than a dozen features, including full LED headlights, a panoramic sunroof, Blue Link telematics, an eight-inch display with navigation, ventilated seats, and a seven-speaker Infinity audio system.

GT Sport

Priced from $24,135, the GT Sport features full LED headlights and LED taillights, 18-inch alloy wheels, and a multi-link independent suspension with larger brakes. Push-button start, leather seats, heated front seats, paddle shifters, alloy pedals, and an electronic parking brake are additional features. Hyundai also adds blind spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert and lane-keep assist. The Sport GT’s Tech Package ($3,850) with the 7-speed dual-clutch (an $1,100 upgrade) expands the available features to include forward collision warning, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control with stop/go technology – in other words, it works in a traffic jam – automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, driver attention alert, and a wireless charging pad.

CarsDirect Tip

Hyundai’s package options present a dilemma to stick-shift loving drivers. To get the good stuff, you need to opt for an automatic transmission. And, with the base model, the Tech Package builds on the Style Package. It'd be nice if we had a normal choice between the two.
