Among Hyundai’s lineup of vehicles are two highly respected sedans. The 2021 Hyundai Sonata and 2021 Hyundai Elantra each provide safe, smooth, and comfortable driving.
How do you then pick the one that is right for your commute around the Burleson, Fort Worth, and Benbrook, areas? Well, they do slightly differ in terms of space, performance, and the specific features they offer. To help you choose the one that is best for you, our Hiley Hyundai of Burleson team gives you a closer look at the Hyundai Elantra vs. Sonata below.
The great thing about both cars is that you can configure them in various ways since they each offer multiple powertrains. You can build your car to give you the exact type of performance you want.
To gain the most efficient ride possible, the Elantra’s standard 2L 4-cylinder engine will give you great gas mileage. With it, you’ll enjoy an EPA-estimated 33 city and 43 highway MPG.1 The Hyundai Sonata, on the other hand, provides an available 2.5L Turbo 4-cylinder engine that generates a powerful 290 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque.
When it comes to interior space, they both offer a comfortable ride. Inside the Elantra, there are 99.4 cubic feet of passenger volume, while the Sonata has 104.4 cubic feet. With all its space, the Hyundai Sonata is especially roomy for you and your front passenger, with 46.1 inches of front legroom. The Elantra provides more legroom for rear passengers, with 38 inches.
To give you and your passenger an even more comfortable ride, a dual automatic temperature control system, leather seating surfaces, and power driver’s seat are available in both the Elantra and Sonata. The 2021 Sonata also offers the cooling feature of available ventilated front seats.
As they’re both Hyundai cars, they each come loaded with a lot of the same features, including:
They both have standard Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® smartphone integration. In the Hyundai Elantra, you can even connect your phone to the touchscreen wirelessly through either of these systems.
The 2021 Elantra also comes with more standard driver-assistive features like Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, and Safe Exit Warning. Only in the 2021 Hyundai Sonata, though, can you get the available Remote Smart Parking Assist, which allows you to maneuver in and out of tight parking spots without even having to be inside the car. The Sonata also offers an available Heads-Up Display that makes it even easier to stay aware of your speed, navigation, and more while driving.
The decision between the 2021 Hyundai Sonata vs. 2021 Hyundai Elantra will come down to what sort of space, features, and performance you personally want while driving around the areas of Burleson, Fort Worth, and Benbrook.
