Difference Between Honda Civic and Hyundai Elantra

elantraHonda Civic vs Hyundai Elantra

The Elantra is the cheaper of the two cars if you compare the base prices prior to adding other options. The engine of the Elantra though is slightly better than that of the Civic. This probably doesn’t make any difference and there is also no noticeable difference in fuel efficiency.

When it comes to the entertainment system, the Elantra has a hand up as it has satellite radio for people who like its wide selection of stations and a USB port so that you can connect your flash drives to your sound system or any other device that uses the USB port. On the other hand, the Civic has an iPod dock where you can fit your iPod and have it play the music on your car’s sound system.

The instrumentation panel of the Civic has also gone digital unlike that of the Elantra which is still analog. Another feature that is lacking on the Elantra is a temperature gauge that can measure how hot or cold it is outside, the Civic has this. But the Elantra is better for bad weather conditions as it has fog lights and its visor mirrors are illuminated. The Civic has no fog lights and its visor mirrors are not illuminated.

A major difference that might attract buyers is the upholstery inside the car. The seats of the Civic are covered in leather while that of the Elantra is not. The leather makes the car more comfy and more elegant. The Civic also has ambient lighting on the interior while the Elantra does not. On the outside, the Civic has side moldings while the Elantra doesn’t have the same.
