Toyota Corolla vs. Elantra: Features
The 2020 Hyundai Elantra is a more affordable sedan than the Toyota Corolla, but that cheaper price point certainly doesn’t mean it forfeits features. While the Corolla has a number of features that make it an extremely competitive sedan on the market, it doesn’t quite stack up to the Hyundai Elantra!
The Toyota Corolla offers only a single-zone automatic climate control in XSE trim, while competitors boast dual-zone setups; and the infotainment system lacks Android Auto support.
But the 2020 Hyundai Elantra comes complete with heated seats and a warmed steering wheel, to go along with a wireless phone charger and the plentiful drivers’ assistance and safety features. Unlike the Corolla, it has both Android and Apple CarPlay support and it features a dual-zone climate control system. Finally, the Elantra has two USB ports so passengers can get their devices powered.
Honda Civic vs. Elantra: Safety
While both the Elantra and the Civic are efficient vehicles, the 2020 Civic remains mostly unchanged from the 2019. The Elantra comes in a variety of trims and is available as a sedan, as well as a hatchback and in the variant form of the Elantra GT! But the most outstanding feature of the 2020 Elantra over the Civic is safety.
To help make backing up safer, the Elantra Sedan (except SE)’s cross-path warning system uses wide-angle radar in the rear bumper to alert the driver to vehicles approaching from the side, helping the driver avoid collisions. The Civic doesn’t offer a cross-path warning system.
The Elantra sedans also have driver alert monitors that detect an inattentive driver, then sounds a warning and suggests a break. According to the NHTSA, drivers who fall asleep cause about 100,000 crashes and 1500 deaths a year. The Civic doesn’t offer a driver alert monitor.
Nissan Sentra vs. Elantra: Engine & Fuel Economy
While the 2020 Nissan Sentra is a more than adequate sedan, it doesn’t meet many of the same standards met by the 2020 Hyundai Elantra— two areas of which being fuel economy and power.
The Elantra boasts 128 HP compared to the Sentra at 124 HP, driving 30lb.ft. of torque! Plus— the Elantra can get from zero to 60 MPH in 7.8 seconds, beating out the Sentra. But if you’re not planning on racing anytime soon, there’s more that makes the Elantra a clear winner over the Sentra… gas mileage!
On the EPA test cycle, the Elantra sedan gets better fuel mileage than the Sentra. Also, in heavy traffic or at stoplights, the Elantra Sedan Eco’s engine automatically turns off when the vehicle is stopped, saving fuel and reducing pollution. The engine is automatically restarted when the driver gets ready to move again. (Start/Stop isn’t accounted for in present EPA fuel mileage tests.) The Sentra doesn’t offer an automatic engine start/stop system.
Kia Forte vs. Elantra: Reliability
The Kia Forte is a formidable sedan available today, however it lacks many of the standard features of the Hyundai Elantra. The Elantra also outranks in gas mileage, boasting better fuel economy in both city and on the highway.
A reliable vehicle saves its owner time, money and trouble. Nobody wants to be stranded or have to be without a vehicle while it’s being repaired. Consumer Reports rates the Elantra Sedan’s reliability 18 points higher than the Forte Sedan.
J.D. Power and Associates’ 2019 survey of the owners of three-year-old vehicles provides the long-term dependability statistics that show that Hyundai vehicles are more reliable than Kia vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Hyundai 8th in reliability, above the industry average. With 2 more problems per 100 vehicles, Kia is ranked 10th.
