Hyundai Elantra GT Gets Updated With New Tech And Styling Pack

Hyundai has updated the Elantra GT for the 2017 model year by giving the hatchback a host of new infotainment technologgies and an additional styling package.

For starters, the infotainment system of the 2017 Elantra GT now supports both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, allowing owners the ability to easily sync up their smartphone to the vehicle’s screen. This new features comes within the Tech Package which also includes a rearview camera, navigation system, cooling front seats and dual-zone climate control.

Also for 2017, the new Value Edition package joins the line-up. Priced at $1,650, it adds a selection of new interior and exterior features. Most significantly, the Value Edition adds 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights and a set of fog lights.

Additionally, the package includes a leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, heated leather seats as well as a sliding armrest. There’s also an auto-up driver’s power window, push button start and a proximity key.

While all of these features were previously available separately on the 2016 model, combining them into one package saves the customer $1,000.

Elsewhere, everything about the 2017 car remains the same as the outgoing model. That means the GT continues to be powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine delivering 173 hp at 6,500 rpm and 154 lb-ft of torque at 4,700 rpm. Mated to this engine is either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.
