How does the 2017 Hyundai Elantra compare to the competition?

The first thing you should look at when considering your next car is the price. That price is important to your budget, not just now, but for the next few years, and it should not be taken lightly. This is where Hyundai has your back as the base model is nearly $1,600 cheaper than the Civic Sedan base model. This pricing difference continues up through the comparable trims. Long story short, if you buy a Hyundai, you are going to pay less.

Are you paying less for less though? With Hyundai, that is not the case. Not only do you have a cheaper price, but with more available power under the hood, you will have a more spirited ride. This is compounded further if you are looking for a non-manual transmission. The Honda uses a CVT automatic whereas the Hyundai uses a traditional automatic. This means you can accelerate easily from any speed with the Hyundai’s automatic. On top of that CVT equipped vehicles like the Honda, are more prone to have reliability issues, which brings us to our next point.

A warranty is a sign of faith in product, and with the warranties on these two vehicles, it is clear that Hyundai has more faith in their product. Even the bumper-to-bumper warranty is better with Hyundai as they offer 5 years or 60,000 miles bumper-to-bumper compared to Honda’s 3 years or 36,000 miles bumper-to-bumper.
