2020 Hyundai Elantra GT Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2020 Hyundai Elantra GT?

The Hyundai Elantra GT is a front-wheel-drive, four-door compact hatchback that has room for five people. The base version is powered by a 161-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that works with a six-speed automatic transmission. The N Line model gets a 201-hp, turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder that teams with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Competitors include the Mazda3 hatchback, Volkswagen Golf and Toyota Corolla hatchback. The Hyundai Elantra compact sedan is covered separately in the Cars.com Research section. 

What’s New on the 2020 Hyundai Elantra GT?

There are no changes this year. 

What Features in the 2020 Hyundai Elantra GT Are Most Important?

Standard features include 17-inch alloy wheels, heated side mirrors, cloth upholstery, an 8-inch touchscreen multimedia system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, air conditioning, cruise control and a 60/40-split, folding backseat. Available features include automatic high-beam headlights, a panoramic moonroof, leather seating surfaces, heated and ventilated front seats, navigation, an Infinity premium stereo, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability and a driver-drowsiness monitor.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
