The 2017 Elantra GT features a 2.0L 4-cylinder putting out a healthy 173 horsepower and 154 pound-feet of torque. This configuration is rated at 24 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. Two transmissions are offered, a 6-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual, both send power to the front wheels.

The Elantra GT comes with a 6-speaker stereo with USB and MP3 auxiliary input jacks, SiriusXM satellite radio, a tilt and telescoping steering wheel with audio controls and cruise control functions integrated into it, a remote keyless entry system, daytime running lights, a blind spot mirror and Bluetooth audio.

The new for 2017 Value Edition package adds 17-inch wheels, sport-tuned suspension, heated front seats, front fog lights, automatic headlights, a leather shift knob and steering wheel and leather seating surfaces. As the name would imply, the Value Edition Package is a fantastic bargain.

A tech package is available for the Elantra GT, though it requires buyers to also spring for the Value Edition Package. Adding both will net buyers a panoramic sunroof, dual-zone automatic temperature control, a 7-inch touchscreen that houses the navigation system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a rearview camera, ventilated front seats and side mirrors with integrated turn signals. It also comes with Hyundai's Blue Link system. Blue Link allows owners to connect to their car via their smart phone, allowing owners to lock or unlock their car, check in on vehicle health and security or even automatically call for help in the event of an accident.

Safety is handled by a full suite of airbags including a driver's knee airbag system. Traction control, stability control and anti-lock braking systems are all standard, while a rearview camera is a standalone option.
