The 2016 Hyundai Veloster is often compared to the 2016 Hyundai Elantra GT, which can leave customers with a difficult decision when purchasing a new Hyundai. Elgin Hyundai takes a look at both models, as they both share affordable price points and terrific features. Each model has its own unique attributes that appeal to slightly different customers, though both are excellent choices for any driver. Come take the true test in person today at Elgin Hyundai.


The Veloster and the Elantra GT are nearly equal when it comes to affordability. When comparing base models, the Elantra GT has a Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price of $18,800. Meanwhile, the Veloster has an MSRP that starts at $18,000.

If price is the largest factor in buying the vehicle, then choose the Veloster. Otherwise, the Elantra GT is still a great choice that won't break the bank. Let's dive deeper into the features that set these two vehicles apart.


The Veloster and the Elantra GT stand out with some unique features. Of course, these quality vehicles share a lot of similarities: heated mirrors, a rear wiper, tinted glass, rear spoiler, rear window defogger, and remote keyless entry that is standard on the base trim.

In the Elantra GT, drivers have the choice to add turn signals in the mirrors-this is not available in the Veloster. It is also optional to add leather seating in the Elantra GT with a multi-moving driver's seat. Front seats in the Elantra GT also have the option for power lumbar support.

For those who need to seat a family of five, choose the Elantra GT. However, the Veloster is not far behind with seating for up to four passengers.

Convenience Features

Hyundai keeps driver demands in mind, which is why both of these models have plenty of convenience tech to enjoy.

  • Standard steering wheel controls come in both models, so you can adjust the features you use most while driving.

  • Also included are hands-free phone controls in both models, which improve safety.

  • It is optional in either model to add a Universal Garage Door Opener and a rear view mirror with electrochromic technology. These features enhance versatility during either daytime or nighttime use.


The Veloster and Elantra GT both have amazing warranties. Hyundai offers basic coverage of its new vehicle limited warranty for 5 years or 60,000 miles. The powertrain warranty goes for 10 years or 100,000 miles. Vehicles are also protected with an anti-perforation warranty for a total of 7 years without mileage limitations.
