2014 Hyundai Elantra GT Preview

Pros: Known for its bang-for-your-buck status, the Elantra maintains that motto despite seeing engine upgrades and a few exterior tweaks for 2014.

Cons: Despite offering a modern and sleek exterior look, some may find the design of the Hyundai Elantra sedan to be dated already.

2014 Hyundai Elantra Fuel Economy: The 2014 Hyundai Elantra GT’s updated engine means new fuel efficiency numbers. The GT’s estimated fuel ratings are approximately 9.8L/100km for city driving with the new 2.0L.
