Hyundai Elantra GT Trim Levels

A lot of changes have been made to the sedan version of the Elantra for the 2020 model year, but the GT hatchback is staying almost exactly the same as the previous model year. It saw so much success, Hyundai didn’t need to do a lot of fine-tuning this time around. You have your choice between the Elantra GT and the Elantra GT N Line. The base hatchback competes with the Mazda3 and the Honda Civic. The GT N Line is a little faster and a little smoother. When it comes to options, you get a lot more when you upgrade to the dual clutch automatic transmission in the GT N Line. Then, you get things like ventilated seats, lane departure warning system, panoramic sunroof, and adaptive cruise control for comfortable cruising in Quitman, MS. The base GTs and the manual transmission package in the GT N Line do not come with these options.

Performance Highlights

The base level GT comes with a 4-cylinder, 161 horsepower engine that can be upgraded to a 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that provides 201 horsepower. The base engine comes with a six-speed automatic transmission. You can upgrade to a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed automatic. You may notice some slower accelerations with the base engine, but it’s still very precise and smooth on the roads of York, AL. The clutch pedal is easy to manipulate. The estimated fuel efficiency numbers for 2020 sit at 25 miles per gallon in the city and 32 miles per gallon on the highway for the base Elantra GT. You’ll lose about 2 miles per gallon when you upgrade to the turbocharged Elantra GT N Line trim level.

Interior Features

The interior of the Elantra GT has been designed to feel very comfortable and simple. The materials that are used will seem much nicer than what you would find in other cars. The cloth interior comes in beige or black. Soft-touch materials are included for interior pieces. You may notice that there is plenty of space for the driver and passenger in the front of the GT. A lot of consumers take note of the 8-inch infotainment system that can be used by touch or by voice commands. It is very user-friendly and safe. Trunk space is impressive for this size of vehicle. You can fit approximately five large bags or suitcases in the trunk. There is plenty of space for running errands or taking a short road trip out of Livingston, AL.

Safety Features

Safety features are one of the biggest concerns of consumers these days. Hyundai doesn’t disappoint with the GT. It was named one of the Top Safety Picks by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It earned 4 out of 5 stars in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration test. The base level GT comes with blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert system. The GT N Line will provide you with automatic high-beam headlights, lane departure warnings, lane-keep assist technology, and much more.
