For most, affordability is the most important factor in making the decision to buy one vehicle over another. The Elantra comes to the top in this category with a less expensive base price of $17,150 vs the Honda Civic's $18,740 base price. This stays consistent as you move up in trim packages as well. If you're a budget conscious shopper who is looking for a great compact car the Elantra is perfect for you.


This category is not the most exciting to talk about, but it's important none the less. Warranty packages come standard on new vehicles sold around the country, however not all are created equal. The Honda Civic offers a 3 year/ 36,000 mi warranty and 5 year/60,000 mi Powertrain warranty. Hyundai Elantra comes with a 5 year/ 60,000 mi warranty and 10 year/ 100,000 mi Powertrain warranty. How does this affect you? In short, when buying an Elantra you'll have peace of mind knowing the car is covered longer under warranty.


Looking to turn heads? Each car has a wow-factor in this category! The Civic retains its classic-sleek look in 2017, but the redesign of the Elantra boosts you up to the next level. With its polished lines both on the exterior and interior, you won't be able to step away from this vehicle. The new 2017 Hyundai Elantra is bound to make a statement about your level of sophistication.



Lastly, we'll take a look at the available features and functionality of the cars. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, HID headlights with Dynamic Bending Light and a Hands-free smart trunk are all available features you can find in select Elantra trim styles but not within the Civic. This makes the Elantra a standalone in terms of features. While each vehicle provides ample comfort to passengers, we'll note that the Elantra lends itself more to passenger comfort - with its heated rear seats.

Overall comfort assessment: Elantra has an equally spacious interior with ample seat comfort and the roominess of a midsize sedan.


So there you have it, two very comparable vehicles in their their market. To find out more about the new 2017 Hyundai Elantra or to schedule a test drive, fill out the contact form below or give us a call. We look forward to getting you behind the wheel of this first-class sedan!
