Hyundai Elantra vs. the Toyota Corolla

  • Price: The Hyundai Elantra's starting price is significantly lower than the Corolla, so right out of the gate, it's a better value.
  • Amenities: But you don't have to sacrifice amenities for value, as the Elantra offers available leather seating as well as available heated front and rear seats.
  • Technology: The Elantra edges out the Corolla in technology, too, offering Android Auto and Apple CarPlay - features you won't find on the Toyota Corolla.
  • Cargo Space: The Hyundai Elantra offers 14.4 cubic feet of cargo space, which is above average for the class and trumps the Corolla's 13 cubic feet, plus the Elantra offers an available hands-free power trunk.
  • Performance: Topping it all off is the Elantra's more powerful available engine, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder versus the Corolla's 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine. It's easy to see how the 2017 Hyundai Elantra easily wins when compared to the Toyota Corolla.

Hyundai Elantra vs. the Nissan Sentra

The Nissan Sentra is another compact sedan that has enjoyed many years of popularity with American drivers. While it is a solid competitor, the Hyundai Elantra outperforms the Sentra, too.

  • Technology:  The Elantra's technology features are more advanced than the Sentra; for example, the Elantra offers a 7-inch touchscreen compared to the Sentra's 5.8-inch screen. You also won't find Android Auto and Apple CarPlay on the Sentra; these features make integrating your smartphone's functions seamless and allow you to use voice controls for safer driving.
  • Available Advanced Safety Features: Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist, and Lane Change Assist will all keep you safer on the road in the Hyundai Elantra, but they're not available on the Nissan Sentra.
  • Standard HID Headlights: Another advantage to the Elantra are the standard HID headlights with Dynamic Bending Light; these advanced lights move in the direction of the vehicle to better illuminate the road and create a safer driving experience.
