The complete definition of a performance car may start with putting power to the pavement in the most efficient way. But total performance also includes impressive stopping power.
Elantra GT uses high tensile and advanced high tensile strength steel for a light, strong and rigid body structure. A stiffer body structure makes for a safer vehicle, plus it allows engineers the added flexibility and opportunity to create a car with better handling and more precise steering.
A low coefficient of drag, measured at .30 in wind-tunnel testing, helps deliver increased MPG and makes Elantra GT more aerodynamic than the Subaru Impreza.*
