Do you want style without compromising practical space? The 2016 Hyundai Elantra GT—the hatchback version of the Elantra—is up for the task. The Elantra GT has 23 cu-ft of cargo space behind the rear seats and 51 cu-ft with the seats folded flat, perfect for golfers, campers, or parents who sometimes can't travel light.
Cargo space is at a premium in compact cars. And yet, the 2016 Hyundai Elantra sedan stands out for offering functional cargo space for carrying groceries, pet supplies, or a baby carriage. The 2016 Hyundai Elantra has 14.8 cu-ft of storage space, more than most other small sedans. If you need more space, such as for long objects, the rear seatbacks fold down in a 40/60 split with the pull of a trunk-mounted handle.
If you cover many miles, the 2016 Hyundai Elantra is a great companion on the road. With the standard 145-hp 1.8L four-cylinder engine, the 2016 Elantra sedan gets an EPA-estimated 30 mpg combined fuel economy with the manual transmission, and an EPA-estimated 31 mpg combined fuel economy with the automatic transmission.
If you're the person who gets a thrill from getting the most out of your dollars, you'll like that the 2016 Hyundai Elantra added a value trim. This mid-range trim was meant to maximize—you guessed it—value for buyers. It adds a touch of luxury to the 2016 Elantra, with standard features including heated seats, a sunroof, and a tilting and telescoping steering wheel.
If you like to push the edges and test your car's handling—whether on the track or the on-ramp— the 2016 Hyundai Elantra offers two great options. The hatchback GT trim comes standard with sport-tuned suspension and steering. On the sedan, you can find those features on the Elantra Sport trim. For a more hands-on driving experience, stick with the manual transmission that comes standard on both the hatchback and sedan SE and Sport trims.
