2017 Hyundai Elantra GT Review

Sporty sedans turned hatchbacks like the fun-to-drive 2017 Hyundai Elantra GT have become wildly popular cars. With the dynamics and handling of a high-engagement commuter plus the trunk utility of a compact SUV, these models bring the ultimate blend of style, performance, and space.

If you're looking for a car that's convenient, composed, and chic, you're sure to be impressed by the Elantra GT. To find out more about this stylish hatch, check out Pecheles Hyundai's complete GT model review.

Hyundai Elantra GT Exterior Design

From the outside looking in, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra's fluidic sculpture concept naturally draws attention. Sculpted body lines, a sizeable grille, chrome detailing, and bold projector headlights make the GT a modern work of art.

Some neat available features incorporated into the Elantra GT exterior include:

  • A "hidden" rearview camera that flips out from the rear hatch Hyundai logo
  • 17-inch alloy wheels
  • Side mirror-integrated turn signal indicators

Space Saver

For a compact hatch, the Hyundai Elantra GT tucks extra space into its 5-seat cabin like a pro. It has a total interior volume of 119.1 cubic feet, which is a full 5 cubic feet more than hatchback competitors like the Ford Focus.

The Elantra GT's interior space gain definitely pays off under its hatch where you have:

  • 23 cubic feet available behind the rear seating row
  • 51 cubic feet with the rear seat folded down

In addition to these impressive cargo numbers, the Hyundai Elantra GT's seats are comfortable and supportive. Combine this with the rear seat's 60/40 split-folding feature, and the GT makes one versatile commuter, day tripper, or cross-country traveler.

2017 Elantra GT Performance

With its potent motor, aerodynamic build, and smooth shifting equipment, the 2017 Elantra GT is fit and efficient. Let's take a look at the capabilities of its standard powertrain:

  • 173 horsepower; 154 lb-ft of torque
  • Available 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC®
  • Active ECO System

These performance elements work together to achieve up to an EPA-estimated 24/32 city/highway MPG, meaning fewer stops for gas as you travel throughout Greenville, Wilson, and Rocky Mount.
