2016 Hyundai Elantra GT

The Elantra GT embodies a fun-to-drive spirit and is acclaimed for its sporty styling, crisp handling and spacious interior. For the 2016 model year, Elantra GT carries over the same features and packaging as the previous model year.

The Elantra comes standard with a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine, but we recommend upgrading to the more powerful 2.0L GDI engine that can generate an impressive 173 horsepower. We were impressed with the Elantra’s composed handling on the road and its well-balanced suspension.

With a high-quality interior, a decent amount of technology and a sweet fun factor, the 2016 Elantra GT is one of the best values on the road. The top-of-the-line trims deliver a lively performance without sacrificing fuel economy or ride quality.

​Vital Stats:

  • Engine: 2.0L GDI DOHC 16-valve inline 4-cylinder engine
  • Output: 173 HP/154 lb-ft torque
  • Transmission: 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC
  • MPG: 24 city/34 hwy
  • 0-60: 8.4 seconds
  • Price: $20,625 (as tested)
