Elantra GT Performance Specs

2018 Hyundai Elantra PerformanceIn a smaller vehicle, the hope is that you'll have something of a peppy engine that you can really zip around town with. This is why the Hyundai Elantra GT offers two different engine options.

The first, which you'll find standard in the base trim level of the car, is a 2.0L inline 4-cylinder engine. This is able to produce 161 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque. With this engine, you'll definitely have a little bit of power at your disposal.

Of course, if you want something even faster, then you can always upgrade to the available 1.6L inline turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. That added turbo power allows the Elantra GT to generate 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque.

Both engines come with gasoline direct injection to help improve fuel economy. If you've chosen the base trim configuration as your Elantra GT of choice, you'll be able to maintain an EPA-estimated 31 MPG highway and 23 MPG city.1

Producing power without squandering gas: It's what this hatchback was clearly made for.

A Versatile Interior

From road trips to work commutes, you need space in your car to keep everyone comfortable. The 2018 Elantra GT offers up 96.5 cubic feet of total passenger space, as well as 24.9 cubic feet behind the second row for your cargo.

Of course, what happens if you're striking out on a vacation? You might need more room in the back for your luggage and gear. In which case, you can stow the 60/40 split fold-down rear seatback to create a total of 55.1 cubic feet of cargo room.

With that versatile back seat, you shouldn't have to sacrifice any of your own room to accommodate luggage.

Hyundai Elantra GT Safety Features

2018 Hyundai Elantra Safety FeaturesFor a smaller car, this hatchback sure is packed with a lot of safety features. For one thing, it comes standard with Vehicle Stability Management, Hillstart Assist Control, and even more stability and traction features. These systems should sharpen up your handling when you're driving over slippery surfaces.

Of course, there are a number of available features that utilize sensors and cameras to monitor the road around you for hazards. A good example of this is Smart Cruise Control with stop/start capability. Your cruise control feature will monitor following distances and apply brake pressure when you're coming up on the car in front of you too fast.

To gain access to all these great smart safety features, you need to only upgrade to the Sport trim level.
