Compare: The Hyundai Elantra GT vs. the Ford Focus Hatchback

More and more drivers are opting for hatchbacks over the traditional sedan design, and with this increased popularity comes more competition. The Hyundai Elantra GT is one of the sportiest, most fashionable hatchbacks on the market, but how does it stack up to other models. Let's compare the Elantra GT with the Ford Focus Hatchback to see which one is worth your money.



Both the Elantra GT and the Focus use powerful four-cylinder engines that give you the strength you need for an exciting drive. The Elantra narrowly beats out the focus in terms of horsepower and torque on the base engine, and it also offers a tighter turning radius and a standard six-speed manual opposed to the Focus's five-speed.

Space and Design

Hatchbacks are all about the extra space that the fifth door affords you and the Elantra GT gives you more room to store the gear you need near Kent. The GT gives you 25 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat, and you can extend this to 55 cubic feet by putting the rear seat down. The Focus only offers you 23.8 cubic feet with the rear seat up and only 44.8 with the seat down.

The exterior of the GT is also much more appealing with sporty accents and well-designed contours. If you're looking for something that provides you with comfort and style, then the Elantra GT near New Franklin is the way to go.


There are plenty of excellent tech features both standard and available on the GT, while the Focus is pretty bare bones in its base model. The Elantra GT gives you satellite radio, HD radio, daytime running lights, and heated mirrors while the Focus doesn't even come standard with cruise control.

Ultimately, we think that the Elantra GT easily beats out the Focus, especially when it comes to its spacious, well-equipped cabin.
