Modern compact sedans should provide sporty performance, well-fitted interiors, and leading driver assistance technology. By comparing 2021 Honda Civic vs. Hyundai Elantra, you can discover which model provides a better overall package, so let’s see how they measure up on:

  • Power and Performance
  • Interior Space and Features
  • Safety Technology

Civic vs. Elantra: Power and Performance

The Civic is well-known for delivering track-like agility and performance through every drive, so it’s no surprise to see the latest model offered with two exceptional engines:

  • 2.0L Four-Cylinder: Fitted as standard for up to 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque.
  • Turbocharged 4-Cylinder: Available for up to 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque.

The 2021 Hyundai Elantra offers only a 2.0L inline 4-cylinder good for up to a paltry 147 hp and 132 lb-ft of torque. Performance pales next to the standard Honda Civic engine and feels a class removed from the available Civic engine.

Civic vs. Elantra: Interior Space and Features

Up to 15.1 cubic feet of cargo space in the Honda Civic’s trunk provides greater utility than the Elantra trunk’s 14.2 cubic feet, and there are several comfort and convenience features where the Civic takes the lead.

You’ll find:

  • Heated front and outboard rear seats in the Civic vs. only heated front seats in the Elantra.
  • An 8-Way Power Driver’s Seat in the Civic vs. a 6-way power driver’s seat in the Elantra.
  • A 10-speaker premium sound system in the Civic vs. an 8-speaker system in the Elantra.

Civic vs. Elantra: Safety Technology

The Civic offers more cutting-edge safety features as standard than the Hyundai Elantra, including Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow. It’s also the only model of the two available with:

  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM): Provides corrective steering pressure if you’re detecting crossing edge-of-road markers.
  • Honda LaneWatch™: Uses a camera to show your blind-spot on the in-dash display.
