2014 Hyundai Elantra vs. 2014 Hyundai Elantra GT Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Elantra GT than the Hyundai Elantra, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Elantra GT, the Hyundai Elantra may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Elantra as you will with the Hyundai Elantra GT, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Hyundai Elantra is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Elantra GT. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Hyundai Elantra and the Hyundai Elantra GT have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Elantra is about the same width as the Hyundai Elantra GT. If you go with the Hyundai Elantra, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Hyundai Elantra GT.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Hyundai Elantra doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Elantra GT.

Handling
The Hyundai Elantra has about the same turning radius as the Hyundai Elantra GT, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Hyundai Elantra and the Hyundai Elantra GT.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Hyundai Elantra and the Hyundai Elantra GT. The Hyundai Elantra has significantly less cargo room than the Hyundai Elantra GT, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Hyundai Elantra comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Hyundai Elantra GT.
