The 2017 Hyundai Elantra vs. the 2017 Toyota Corolla

Buying a compact car doesn't mean you have to sacrifice comfort. If you're in the market for a compact car, you want something efficient, yet comfortable; affordable, but reliable.

Two cars that might come to mind in this class are the 2017 Hyundai Elantra and the Toyota Corolla. But how do these cars compare? As you'll see, these cars may be similar in class and in fuel economy (both boast an average highway MPG of 36), but the 2017 Hyundai Elantra, fully redesigned this year, offers a multitude of features that makes it the right choice for you. 

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra: Affordable, Stylish and Safe

The first thing you'll notice about the Hyundai Elantra compared to the Toyota Corolla is the price tag: the 2017 Hyundai Elantra comes in at a impressive $17,150 starting MSRP, compared to the Toyota Corolla's $18,500. And that amount will get you many more features included standard than the Toyota. Get so much more bang for your buck with the 2017 Hyundai Elantra with some of these top-of-the-line features.

Ride Safely with A Range of Technology Features

With the 2017 Hyundai Elantra, it's all at your fingertips. With an 8-inch touchscreen (a full two inches larger than the Toyota Corolla's) and Apple CarPlay or Android Auto available, you'll never have to take your eyes off the road to enjoy the ride.

And you'll ride in safety with the full menu of safety features. For the base price, both cars have assistive technology like the following:

  • Lane departure warning
  • Lane keep assist
  • Forward collision warning
  • Auto forward collision brakes
  • Automatic high beams
  • Adaptive cruise control
But the 2017 Hyundai Elantra gives you so much more for the money. Not only do the automatic high beams automatically dim when oncoming traffic or vehicles are detected - the Hyundai Elantra includes two safety features that the Toyota Corolla doesn't: blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. Those come standard on the Hyundai Elantra, but not in the Toyota Corolla.

Go Hands-Free When You Need It

Tired of fumbling for your keys when you go to get into your car or load groceries? Not anymore with the 2017 Hyundai Elantra. With the Smart Trunk, simply walk up to the car and once the key fob is detected, the trunk will open, hands-free.

If you own a smart device, Blue Link revolutionizes hands-free entry. With just a tap of the finger or the sound of your voice on a smartphone or smartwatch, you can lock or unlock your Hyundai Elantra, start or stop the engine, and even set the cabin temperature, so your car is always ready to go when you are.

A Comfortable, Stylish Ride

Go hands-free even with your driving preference, with driver seat memory settings. In the Hyundai Elantra, the driver's seat will even automatically move back to help you enter, and return to your preferred settings once you're settled.

Once you're settled, everyone will ride in style, with heated seats not just in the front, but for your rear passengers, too. Even your possessions will be safe and secure - and you can fit quite a few of them, with a spacious 14.4 cubic foot trunk (a whole foot and a half more than the Corolla offers).  

An Industry-Leading Warranty

The Toyota Corolla is pretty standard in that it comes with a 3-year, 36,000 mile limited warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000 mile powertrain warranty.

But, there's a reason Hyundai's warranty has been called "America's Best Warranty." How about a 5-year, 60,000 limited warranty? Or a 5-year roadside assistance warranty with unlimited miles? Finally, what about a 10-year, 100,000 mile powertrain warranty? Right away you're getting a better warranty with the Hyundai Elantra, meaning that you're protected for years to come.

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra: No Comparsion

When it comes time to buy a compact car, the choice is clear: the 2017 Hyundai Elantra offers industry-leading warranty, safety features and comfort-enhancing technologies.
