2017 Hyundai Elantra GT
Available hidden rearview camera
It may start out hidden, but this clever camera brings added visibility and safety to the real world. When you put the transmission into reverse, the Hyundai logo on the rear hatch flips up to reveal the rearview camera lens. An image behind the vehicle is captured by the camera and appears on the center console touchscreen.
Take in the sporty profile
Chrome accents run under the side windows at the beltline, extending and integrating the sleek side view. Muscular arches frame the available 17-inch wheels, and the side mirrors with available integrated turn-signal indicators add visibility, safety and style.
A few of the convenient storage areas you'll find in the Elantra GT include: a cooled glove compartment, a front center-console storage tray, an overhead sunglass holder and a rear-seat center armrest with cupholders. For added flexibility, there is a 60/40 split fold-flat rear seatback and an available rear hidden cargo-area storage compartment.
Cooled glove compartment
Not too hot. Not too cold. Just right. That's how Elantra GT's ingenious cooled glove compartment uses cool air flowing from the air conditioning system to keep whatever you put in it pretty chill. We're betting it won't be gloves.
A low coefficient of drag, measured at .30 in wind-tunnel testing, helps deliver increased MPG and makes Elantra GT more aerodynamic than the Subaru Impreza.*
A sweet-shifting 6-speed manual is standard. The available 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC® has a lock-up torque converter for higher fuel economy at freeway speeds.
Innovative safety features
In addition to the driver's knee airbag, the Elantra GT has active safety features to help you avoid accidents, and passive safety features in case of one. A comprehensive Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system links and optimizes the function of all active and passive safety features, incorporating ESC, TCS and ABS in potential collision situations.
Auto Defogging System
This available feature uses sensors near the windshield glass to detect humidity occurrence and automatically remove humidity on the inside surface of the windshield, improving driving safety and visibility by preventing window fogging.
Satellite Radio and audio connections
The Elantra GT's standard audio system features satellite radio for the best in commercial-free radio. The standard smartphone/USB and auxiliary input jacks let you connect and control your music, your way.
Do more than navigate
The Elantra GT's available navigation system features a 7-inch touchscreen and a unique hidden rearview camera. This system also gives you the option of controlling the navigation, phone and audio via voice recognition. SiriusXM Satellite Radio is offered* along with SiriusXM Travel Link which includes NavTraffic and NavWeather.
