Along with five unique trims, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra takes the key features of their trademark sedan and bolsters it with precision tuning, interior and exterior redesigns, and more power for better mileage.

But what separates the Elantra from the newly designed Elantra GT?  

The Elantra GT is designed with the same high-end features of the sedan but in hatchback form. This means you get more horsepower, improved interior space, and more high-end features.
