How does the Elantra and Elantra GT Engines Compare?

From initial glance, you will notice that the Elantra is a standard looking compact four door sedan, and the Elantra GT is a hatchback. The base model Elantra comes with a 2.0 liter four cylinder engine, which boasts 147 horsepower. In comparison, the Elantra GT comes with a 2.0 liter four cylinder engine, however, has a more powerful 161 horsepower engine. Looking for even more power? Opt for the Sport option (available on both the Elantra and the Elantra GT) which boasts an impressive 201 horsepower.  Fuel economy is also an important aspect to consider, but you can't go wrong with either choice. The Elantra gets an estimated 28 MPG city and 38 MPG highway, and the Elantra GT sits at 24 mpg city, 32 mpg highway. For some buyers, horsepower, fuel efficiency, and vehicle style is enough to see which vehicle is right for them, however, if both the sedan and the hatchback could meet your wants and needs, it's important to understand and know that the two cars not only differ in terms of performance, style, and fuel economy, but also on trim levels and interior cargo space.

Trim Levels and Interior of the Elantra and Elantra GT

The Hyundai Elantra GT comes in two different trim levels, while the Hyundai Elantra comes in an impressive 6 trim levels, so you will have no problem finding the car that is right for you regardless of which one you choose. Cargo space is where the two vehicles really start to differ. If cargo space isn't a large necessity for you, the Elantra's 24.9 cubic feet of cargo space should be just fine. If you find yourself loading up your car with gear for fun or for work, you will find great use in the Elantra GT's 55.1 cubic feet of cargo space, enough to fit nearly any haul.
