Compared to the Honda Civic, the Hyundai Elantra Offers Tremendous Value, Ample Features

Interested in purchasing or leasing a new compact sedan or hatchback here in the Columbus, Ohio area sometime soon? If you are, you've likely been considering the Hyundai Elantra – but you may also have been thinking about competitors like the popular Honda Civic. While we're admittedly a bit partial here at Ricart Hyundai, if you're serious about finding a sedan that offers the perfect blend of efficiency, power, technology and safety features – all for an affordable price – we think the Hyundai Elantra makes for the better choice. Not quite convinced? Here's how the Elantra and Civic compare across several important categories:


  • Price: The Hyundai Elantra is arguably one of the best values in the compact car market today, thanks to its affordable starting price of around $16,950. The Honda Civic? It clocks in at nearly two grand more, starting at around $18,840.
  • Performance and Efficiency: Both the Hyundai Elantra and Honda Civic come equipped with standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines that are competent yet efficient. The Civic also can be had with a 1.5-liter engine. The Elantra, meanwhile, also can be had with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine in GT models, or a fuel-sipping 1.4-liter four-cylinder on Eco models.
  • Infotainment and Tech: Looking for a vehicle with plenty of infotainment technology? The Civic and Elantra both offer Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, but the Elantra offers up to an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system vs. the Civic's 7-inch system.
  • Safety Features: The Honda Civic and Hyundai Elantra both offer plenty of safety features to get you where you need to go unscathed. From backup cameras to plenty of active safety features, both compact cars are very safe choices for you or your family.
  • Cargo Needs and Space: Looking for more space than a sedan can provide? The Civic and Elantra are both offered in sedan and hatchback models, though the Elantra GT hatchback offers considerably more total cargo space than its Honda Civic Hatchback counterpart.
