Hyundai and Honda make some of the most stylish, efficient, and reliable cars out on the market, and leading the charge are the 2021 Hyundai Elantra and 2021 Honda Civic. If you can only drive one from day to day around the areas of Burleson, Fort Worth, and Benbrook, though, our Hiley Hyundai of Burleson team wants to help you pick the one best for you. We’re giving you a closer side-by-side look below at the Hyundai Elantra vs. Honda Civic—so keep reading to learn more about these cars!
When looking for a new car, gas mileage is a big priority for most. You get great gas mileage with either car, but the 2021 Hyundai Elantra will make each gallon of gas stretch a little further. With the 2021 Civic, you’ll get a standard fuel economy of 30 city/38 highway MPG. The Hyundai Elantra gets an EPA-estimated 33 city/43 highway MPG.1
Beyond its standard efficient powertrain, the Elantra also offers a sporty and exciting driving experience with its N Line trim level—its turbo engine produces 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. At most, the Honda Civic creates 174 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque.
With slightly more space inside its cabin, the 2021 Elantra also provides more room for you and your passengers, with extra headroom found among both rows—and more legroom in the back row— compared to the Civic.
The Hyundai Elantra also comes with wireless Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®, which allow you to access your navigation app, messages, and music right on the 8-inch screen. The Civic only offers Android™ and Apple® smartphone integration in higher trim levels, and it requires you to plug in your device.
You can also opt for the available 10.25-inch fully digital instrument cluster in the 2021 Elantra for a clearer, cleaner look at all your driving information, which is something not available in the Honda Civic.
With either car, you’ll have a variety of technology systems that help provide peace of mind as you drive. They each come with driver-assistive technologies designed to help you safely reach your destination. However, there are some features that are only offered in the 2021 Elantra, including:
The Honda Civic is a good car, thanks to its safety systems and decent gas mileage. With all it has to offer, though, the Elantra is the ultimate sedan, and it is easy to see why the Hyundai ELANTRA has been named the 2021 North American Car of the Year™.
