Action Hyundai of Millville's thoroughly researched comparisons-like this one-aim to connect new-car seekers in Cape May County, Cumberland County, and Salem County, NJ, with the very best model for their needs.

In this Hyundai Elantra vs. Toyota Corolla comparison, we'll give you a taste of how the talents of the Hyundai Elantra compare to the Toyota Corolla. Which model will come out on top? Let's find out!

Tap into the Elantra's Power Reserve

The Hyundai Elantra is powered by a standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine and mated to a Smartstream® Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT). Hopping on the highway and driving in the left lane is easy for this sedan, which exhibits quick-witted surges of power with 147 horsepower under the hood.

The base engine of the Toyota Corolla is smaller than the Elantra's. At 1.8L, it produces only 139 horsepower and in turn takes longer to reach passing speeds. A Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) comes standard.

Even with all that power, the Hyundai Elantra is also more efficient. Its base configuration boasts an EPA-estimated 33 city/43 highway MPG.1 Compare that to the base configuration of the Toyota Corolla. It only achieves an EPA-estimated 30 city/38 highway MPG.

Options Overview: Elantra vs Corolla

The Hyundai Elantra and the Toyota Corolla both offer seating for five across two rows, but there's more wiggle room in the Elantra. It offers 40.6 inches of headroom up front, compared to just 38.3 inches of front headroom in the Corolla. There's also more space in the back, with 38 inches of rear legroom, compared to only 34.8 inches of rear legroom in the competition.

There's a lot more comfort to be had in the Hyundai Elantra as well. It's available with leather-trimmed seats, which are not available with the Corolla. Both sedans, however, share some options, like heated front seats and a 6-way adjustable driver's seat.

You can set the mood with available ambient lighting. These sedans also offer a sunroof to let in the sunshine and a warm breeze the next time you're on your way down the shore. 

Drive Smarter: Safety and Technology

Whether you're on your daily commute or an impromptu road trip, having technology safely at your fingertips is essential. The Hyundai Elantra and the Toyota Corolla both offer infotainment systems with touchscreens that are easy to use.

Both models also offer the connective power of Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®, so drivers of all smartphone denominations have instant access to their favorite apps and playlists. They're all casted onto a touchscreen display, but you may find the available 10.25-inch display in the Elantra a bit more user-friendly than the available 8-inch display of the Corolla.

What about driver assistance? The Elantra has a decisive edge here-especially in the parking lot. It's available with Parking Distance Warning - Reverse, which alerts you to potential obstacles while in reverse. If you don't react in time, the available Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist - Reverse can apply the brakes to possibly avoid a collision.
