KBB recently compared the Hyundai Elantra and the Toyota Corolla and the 2019 Hyundai Elantra was voted winner.
Why? Let's take a closer look at the comparison and why the Elantra is the better choice.
While both vehicles score similarly with 4.5 out of 5 stars and are the most reliable vehicles in their class, the Hyundai Elantra comes with America’s Best Warranty with a 5 Year/60,000 mile Limited Warranty and a 10 Year/100,000 Miles Powertrain.
Toyota Corolla only comes with a 3 Year/36,000 Mile Limited Warranty and a 5 Year/60,000 Mile Powertrain Warranty.
Even with a quicker and more powerful engine, the Elantra got slighly better fuel efficiency than the Corolla with 32 MPG City and 40 MPG Highway vs 30 MPG City and 40 MPG Highway with the Corolla.
Both vehicles have the industry standard features such as power windows, power mirrors and keyless entry as well as push button start, but that’s where the similarities end.
The Ioniq has Sirius XM Satellite Radio and Smart Device Integration with Android Auto and Apple Car Play as standard features on the base model, the Prius does not offer either of these options on their base model.
Both the Corolla and the Elantra Sedan have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, driver knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, front-wheel drive, height adjustable front shoulder belts, plastic fuel tanks, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights and rearview cameras.
