LEARN ABOUT THE 2020 HYUNDAI ELANTRA

A Better Buy with Hyundai

If you're in the market for a compact sedan, you may have a 2020 Hyundai Elantra vs 2020 Toyota Corolla decision on your hands. Both vehicles come from well-known car manufacturers. Hyundai and Toyota are also heavily praised for providing high-quality vehicles that last.

Both the 2020 Elantra and the 2020 Corolla are available to buy with half a dozen different trim options. And with starting prices that come in under $20,000 MSRP, you may find it can be particularly difficult to choose between the two.

However, there are distinct advantages to the 2020 Hyundai Elantra that you just won't find in the Toyota Corolla. Not only does Hyundai insert a maximum number of features for the price, but the price itself is heavily attractive. You can step into an all-new Elantra starting at $19,150 MSRP for the SE trim.

The choice is clear, but you'll still want to explore more. Come visit our Tampa Hyundai dealership today to see and test drive the fashionably styled and expertly featured 2020 Elantra.

Hyundai Elantra vs Toyota Corolla Key Specs

Compact cars can at times be a sacrifice between wants and needs. However, the 2020 Hyundai Elantra gives us very little to sacrifice, even at a low cost, especially compared to the Toyota Corolla.

You'll enjoy over a foot more trunk space in the Elantra, for example, with 14.4 feet of space versus the 13 feet of trunk space available in the Corolla.

A Hyundai Elantra vs Toyota Corolla comparison also reveals an overall better design when you choose Hyundai. The Elantra features a slightly tighter turning radius, multiple sport and smart drive modes, and a stylish chrome front grille.

The Elantra and Corolla share many design specs, including offering roof-mounted shark fin antennas, up to 18-inch alloy wheels with the higher-end trims and a rainbow of popular body colors.

For an all-out experience, the Elantra Sport comes in at just $24,000 MSRP. You'll find this may be a more favorable price than the comparable Corolla XSE at $25,550 MSRP.

Varying Engine Designs

These two car manufacturers often take different approaches to engine design. Those making a Hyundai Elantra and Toyota Corolla comparison will find three available engines across the Elantra trims, and three engines available for the Corolla.

The current year Corolla trims offer a 139 horsepower, 1.8-Liter 4-cylinder engine; a 169-horsepower, 2.0-Liter 4-cylinder engine; and in the Hybrid model, a 121-horsepower, 1.8-Liter 4-cylinder engine.

In the Elantra SE, SEL Value Edition and Limited trims, Hyundai features a 147-horsepower, inline 4-cylinder engine front-wheel drive and Smartstream Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT). The Eco trim offers a 128-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with 7-speed EcoShift® dual-clutch transmission with SHIFTRONIC®. You'll find the same engine in the Sport trim, with slightly different tuning that brings it up to 201 horsepower.

You'll find gas mileage across the Corolla and Hyundai trims vary. The Toyota Corolla Hybrid offers the best gas mileage of the group, delivering an EPA-estimated 52 MPG highway.

However, most Hyundai trims provide an EPA-estimated 40 MPG highway or more (with the exception of the tuned-up Sport trim). That easily beats the fuel economy of the non-Hybrid Corolla engines, which max out at an EPA-estimated 38 MPG highway.

2020 Hyundai Elentra Exterior

Comfort of the Ride

The Elantra and the Corolla provide similarly-equipped interiors with an eye to comfort and convenience. Both vehicles offer:

  • Dual automatic temperature control
  • Power windows and doors
  • Premium cloth or leather seating, depending on trim levels
  • Heated front seats, depending on trim levels
  • 60/40 split fold-down rear seatback for extra trunk space
  • Steering-wheel mounted controls
  • Bluetooth® connectivity for hands-free calling

Both vehicles also feature full-color touchscreen displays in the center console for radio, streaming music services, and other connected service controls.

For buyers focused on interior styling and technology, the choice may be down to price. You'll find comparable features in every 2020 Elantra trim for a lower price.

Critical Safety Measures

Safety measures are a critical part of the design for both the Hyundai Elantra and the Toyota Corolla. Both vehicles offer now-standard passive and active systems, such as three-point safety belts, multiple airbags, anti-lock braking systems, rearview cameras, and LATCH systems for child car seats. You'll also find must-have radar and camera-powered driver-assist technologies in both vehicles. Every Elantra and Corolla trim level offers these increasingly common features, to forward collision assist and lane-keeping assist features.

You can get these systems standard with the Hyundai Elantra SE's lower pricing, or expand on them at higher trims.

Why Choose the Hyundai Elantra?

A Hyundai Elantra vs Toyota Corolla decision ultimately comes down to price and ease of mind. Everything available in the Toyota Corolla you'll find readily available with the Hyundai Elantra, but at a notably lower cost. And thanks to its Long-Term Ownership Value Awards from Kelly Blue Book, the Elantra is a better buy for buyers who like to own and drive a car long term. Also, Hyundai's 10 Years/100,000 Mile warranty provides more coverage than the competition so you can drive with peace of mind when you choose the Elantra.
