More Premium Features for Hyundai Elantra!
First thing we are going to elaborate on these models is their interior and exterior. Unlike Toyota Corolla that has almost kept the same external attributes, Hyundai Elantra has suffered severe changes. Not only it has a coupe version, but it has also another Elantra Grand Touring model. Now, let’s have a look inside! Hyundai Elantra is fully equipped with climate control, telescopic steering wheel, iPod/USB ports, navigation system etc. When you enter Toyota Corolla, the first thing you notice is the visibility range which is very wide. As far as internal equipment gadgets are concerned, it contains less premium features (wide panorama sunroof, rear view camera connected with the TFT display) then Hyundai Elantra.
The Elantra has more Powerful Engine!
Hyundai Elantra is definitely more powerful! Why? Because it has 1.8-liter, 148 horsepower engine with fuel consumption of 29 mph in the city and 40 mpg on highway. Toyota Corolla, on the other side, has 1.8-liter, 132-horspower engine.
Running Costs, Coziness and Security!
The Corolla has more roomy backseats space while Elantra has more spacious headroom. When it comes to safety, the fact that Hyundai Elantra is winner of the Top Safety Pick award says enough. It has a full five-star crash test rating, full equipment of airbags and all inclusive safety gear. However, Toyota Corolla has also been awarded with the Top Safety Pick award and has more than satisfactory safety equipment. The maintenance costs and gas costs are same for both cars.
More Space from the Inside!
If you buy Hyundai Elantra and it fits in your garage, then your garage is big enough for Toyota Corolla, as well. Both cars have room for same number of people, but when luggage is concerned Elantra has a bigger trunk.
Warranty is the Biggest Advantage of Elantra!
Hyundai’s warranty has duration of 5 years, while the one offered by Toyota has duration of 3 years. As far as the price is in question Destination Charges will cost you the same for both cars and the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price is lower for Hyundai Elantra than the one for Toyota Corolla.
The Hyundai Elantra is the Clear Winner Here!
However, there’s are many of reasons why the 2013 Hyundai Elantra remains the top rated compact sedan. It simply leaves the Toyota Corolla in the dust with good fuel economy, standout design, better interior appointments and because it offers far more value for the customer’s money.
Toyota will launch the completely redesigned 2014 Corolla by fall of 2013 and Hyundai will unveil its new restyled Elantra in 2014 (here are the spy shots). For now, the Hyundai Elantra is the Clear Winner!
