Fun-to-Drive Performance Specs
For starters, the Elantra GT is just plain fun to drive. Powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, the standard Elantra GT can generate up to 161 horsepower alongside 150 pound-feet of torque while its upgraded N Line trim level kicks things up a notch, delivering 201 horsepower alongside 195 pound-feet of torque thanks to a 1.6L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine.
The base GT comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission standard while the N Line subs that in with a 6-speed manual, or if you really want to unlock its full potential, an available 7-speed Dual Clutch transmission with paddle shifters. Furthermore, features like the available multi-link independent rear suspension system and larger brakes make driving it even more fun.
Utility & Safety Features
Space might not be the first thing to come to mind when thinking about a compact sedan, but the hatchback Elantra GT offers plenty of utility for those in need of more space than a traditional sedan has to offer. With 24.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats and up to 55.1 cu. ft. with the seats folded, it has plenty to offer. You can even mix and match cargo and passengers thanks to its standard 60/40 split-folding rear seats.
Safety really shines through thanks to a host of available advanced driver-assistive technologies, including Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go capability, Lane Keeping Assist and Blind-Spot Collision Warning with Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning.
