2015 Hyundai Elantra GT Overview
- Hatchback version of the Elantra compact sedan
- 173-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine
- 23 cubic feet of rear cargo room
Offering more fun and practicality, the 2015 Hyundai Elantra GT is the hatchback version of the Elantra compact sedan.
As good as the Elantra looks, we prefer the styling on the Elantra GT which seems to fit Hyundai’s fluidic sculpture aesthetic better. The large front grille gives the Elantra GT an aggressive, wide-mouthed look that hints at its sportier intentions. 16-inch alloy wheels come standard, while 17-inch wheels and a panoramic moonroof are optional.
Under the hood, the Elantra GT got a new, more powerful engine last year which carries over into 2015. The 173-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder is mated to a six-speed manual or six-speed speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy ratings are estimated at 24/34 mpg city/highway with both transmissions. The driver also has the ability to select different steering settings depending on the type of driving that is desired.
Inside, the Elantra GT beats its sedan counterpart by a large margin when it comes to cargo room. The Elantra GT offers 23 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats, which beats the sedan’s 14.8 cubic feet by more than fifty percent. The Elantra GT also continues the Hyundai tradition of cramming their cars full of standard features. Bluetooth connectivity, air conditioning, USB port, premium cloth seating, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and heated front seats all come standard. Hyundai’s Blue Link telematics (similar to the OnStar system), dual-zone automatic climate control, and a navigation system are optional.
The 2015 Elantra GT earned a full five-star overall crash test rating from the NHTSA, their highest rating. Standard safety features include seven airbags, antilock brakes, and electronic stability control. A rearview camera is optional.
