The 2018 Hyundai Elantra compact sedan and the 2018 Elantra GT compact hatchback both provide an excellent vehicle at a very competitive price. With one of the largest in-class storage capacities on the market, the Elantra GT may be ideal for individuals who want a responsive vehicle that also has room for the groceries. While for those seeking a sporty, maneuverable sedan, the 2018 Elantra may be a perfect choice. Both vehicles have a number of excellent features, so let’s take a look!

Cargo Space

One of the biggest differences between the two models is their cargo space. The Elantra provides 14.4 cubic feet of storage across all trim styles, while the Elantra GT offers an impressive 55.1 cubic feet, comparing well with some smaller SUVs. However, the Elantra GT obtains this by folding the rear seats and making use of underfloor storage, so using the full cargo space will require giving up the rear passenger seats. Still, especially for those with a family or business that requires a roomy cargo space, the Elantra GT is an excellent choice.

Safety Features

The 2018 Elantra GT and Elantra show off Hyundai’s long-standing commitment to passenger safety. Both models come with durable and well-constructed frames with passive protective features, as well as a range of standard and optional features such as blind spot mirrors, lane departure warning systems, rearview camera, and brake assist systems. The Elantra GT includes a new driver’s knee airbag for added crash protection and an auto-defogging system to ensure that the driver will always have unimpaired vision, no matter the external conditions. Ultimately, both models have received excellent marks for both passenger and driver safety.

Fuel Economy

Many drivers prefer to own fuel-efficient vehicles, both to protect their budget and to help protect the environment. The 2018 Hyundai Elantra and Elantra GT both have high marks in this area. The Elantra has a city/highway mileage of 29/38 with its automatic transmission while the Eco model, using a 1.4 liter 4-cylinder improves on that with 32/40 city/highway mileage. The Elantra GT, for its part, has a standard mileage of 24/32 city/highway mileage, backed up by a 13.2-gallon fuel tank. Especially when compared with the cargo space offered by the Elantra GT, this mileage is very impressive.

Ultimately, the decision of whether to purchase the 2018 Elantra or the Elantra GT depends on the purchaser's personal preference. Both vehicles provide an excellent driving experience.
