I thought I was going to purchase my fourth Honda in a row and almost did. However, after seeing and test driving the Elantra GT I was hooked.

Decent commuter

Good room... hatchback area has enough room for work items...User settings are not simple... other than that very satisfied with the car...average 36 mph not great but is doable...

Sporty and fun to drive

by GT FAN from WAUPACA, WI | August 15, 2019

I bought this car used (Aug. of 2019) it had 33k miles on it. It runs and drives like brand new. My only complaint about the base model is the wheels...I like rims rather than steel wheels with covers. That being said, I am pleased with performance. I drive 40 hwy miles one way to work every day. i get about 33-36mpg on the hwy.

2017 Hyundai Elantra GT Overview


The 2017 Hyundai Elantra GT is the 5-door, high performance version of the regular Elantra. It competes with the Ford Focus, Mazda3, and Kia Forte. This year, the Elantra GT gains more available options.

The Elantra GT has a sporty look to match its performance. The front-end features a bold, hexagonal grille with chrome accents. At the rear, a high-mounted center stop light is integrated into the rear spoiler. A driver’s blindspot mirror, projector headlights, and 16-inch wheels come standard. The newly available Value Edition Package bundles automatic headlights, front fog lights, and 17-inch alloy wheels together. Other optional features include power/heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, a panoramic moonroof, and sport-tuned suspension.

Under the hood, the Elantra GT is powered by a standard 173-hp, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. Fuel economy for the Elantra GT with either the manual or automatic is an EPA-estimated 24/32 mpg city/highway.

Inside, the Elantra GT has a standard cloth seating with a 60/40 split-folding rear seat. It has 51 cubic feet of cargo room with the rear seat folded down. The center stack features a standard audio system that includes CD/MP3 playback, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, and a USB port. It can be upgraded to the updated Blue Link multimedia system with a 7-inch display, an integrated navigation system, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility. Standard features include air conditioning, power windows/locks, and cruise control. Dual-zone automatic climate control, leather-trim seating, heated/ventilated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, remote keyless entry, and push-button start are also available.
