The 2018 Hyundai Elantra and the Competition

Over the years, the Hyundai Elantra has built a nice reputation for itself as a reliable, eye-catching, compact car that's great on gas and loaded with amenities. Here at Ron Marhofer Hyundai of Green, we think the 2018 Elantra is a great all-around car for drivers in Barberton and Wadsworth, whether they have a small family or are a young professional.

If you're considering a compact sedan, and you've come to a crossroads between our Hyundai Elantra, and the competing Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla, read on to see how these vehicles all differ in their own ways. While all three of these models are available in multiple body styles, we based our comparisons solely on the classic sedan style. However, similar numbers and comparisons apply across all styles. We hope this side-by-side comparison helps illustrate for our customers throughout the Green, OH area the superiority of the Hyundai model over the competition.

The 2018 Hyundai Elantra holds more gas than the Honda Civic, meaning a longer range between refueling stops for you.

Getting In and Out of the Hyundai Elantra vs. the Honda Civic

The Hyundai Elantra doors are wide and easy to get in and out of, for both the front and backseats. Plus, the seats are not low to the ground, meaning you won't feel like you're falling into the vehicle or struggling to get up. The Honda Civic, however, was redesigned recently to feature a dramatically sloping roof. This lower roofline means your passengers will have to watch their heads while getting in or out of the backseats.

Hyundai Elantra Fuel-Saving Eco Model vs. the Honda Civic

Among its lengthy list of trim levels, the Hyundai Elantra has a model called the Eco, which, as its name indicates, is equipped with a more fuel-efficient engine than other models. The Hyundai Elantra Eco is powered by a turbocharged 1.4-liter four cylinder with 128 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque. The Honda Civic, on the other hand, has a range of engines in a variety of performance ratings. But, the Civic engines increase in power, and there are no fuel-sipping eco-friendly modes in the mix.
