Hyundai says the Elantra GT's new corporate grille is meant to evoke pouring molten steel. Hyperbole aside, this is a good-looking face.

The Elantra GT offers 25 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats up, and a whopping 55 cubes when they're stowed.

Hyundai does simple, well-organized interiors about as well as anyone these days, and the GT is no different.

Note the crimson accents, including on the HVAC vent bezels, seat stitching and steering wheel.

An 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system is standard, as is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. 

If you want embedded navigation, you sadly can't specify a manual transmission owing to the way options are bundled.

This is the uplevel Sport's 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. It generates 201 horsepower and a useful 191 pound-feet of torque from just 1,500 rpm. 

Base-model GTs receive a normally aspirated 2.0-liter four with 161 hp and 150 pound-feet of torque. 

Treat yourself.
