With responsive handling and up to an EPA-estimated 37 MPG Highway2, it's not your traditional GT. It's more fun, functional and efficient than that. And it's loaded with performance features that other hatchbacks can only dream about, including a Hyundai-first Driver Selectable Steering Mode (DSSM).
The Elantra GT's Driver Selectable Steering Mode (DSSM), available 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC® and available sport-tuned suspension offer excellent responsiveness and control. The result is a nimble vehicle that's genuinely fun to drive.
An eco-efficient 1.8L 4-cylinder engine features an aluminum engine block and head with DOHC, 16 valves and Dual-CVVT which improves torque and fuel economy.
A sweet-shifting 6-speed manual is standard. The available 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC® has a lock-up torque converter for higher fuel economy at freeway speeds.
This innovative feature is a Hyundai first. It lets the driver customize the control and feel of the steering right from the steering wheel. Select from three options: Comfort, Normal and Sport.
Hyundai's ingenious Active ECO System modifies engine and automatic transmission control with the push of a button. Hyundai's testing has shown that this feature can improve real-world MPG by up to 7%. Elantra GTs with manual transmissions have a shift indicator that shows the driver the ideal shift points to save fuel and make efficient power.
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.
By creating a stiffer body structure, using the kind of high tensile strength steel found in the Elantra GT, body design engineers give those engineers responsible for tuning the handling and steering of the vehicle a serious advantage. In the end, the real benefit goes to drivers who enjoy more responsive handling.
A low coefficient of drag, measured at .30 in wind-tunnel testing, helps deliver increased MPG and makes Elantra GT more aerodynamic than Toyota Matrix, Subaru Impreza and VW Golf.
