2016 Hyundai Elantra vs. 2016 Toyota Corolla

When it comes to luxury compact vehicles, most people in Eastchester New York will come across the 2016 Hyundai Elantra and the 2016 Toyota Corolla. On the surface, it might seem difficult to choose between the two, but in reality, the Hyundai Elantra is clearly miles ahead of the Toyota Corolla. Though both vehicles feature impressive performance as well as some cutting-edge driver aids, the Toyota Corolla falls short of the Hyundai Elantra in offering luxury, performance, easy maintenance and a classy look compared to the Toyota. These are some of the specific details why the 2016 Hyundai Elantra comes out on top in this comparison.

Design & Style

The 2016 Hyundai Elantra and the 2016 Toyota Corolla feature exteriors that are worlds apart. On one hand, the Toyota has minimal body creases, giving it a somewhat bland look. The 2016 Hyundai Elantra, on the other hand, has a more appealing exterior featuring just the right amount of body creases and bulges, as well as larger lights. The 2016 Hyundai Elantra looks more aggressive compared to the Toyota, and is also aesthetically pleasing as well.

The interior design is also more appealing in the Hyundai. It features enough leg room and head room for all occupants, and you can choose from a variety of high quality trims that make the interior look and feel classy. The Hyundai also features amenities including a backup camera, heated seats and climate control among others. The Toyota offers some of the comfort and convenience amenities that the Hyundai offers, but these are usually extras rather than standard features.

Technology & Safety

Safety is a major priority for all drivers. The 2016 Toyota Corolla ships with basic safety features that can be expected in any modern car. These include driver and passenger airbags, antilock braking systems, stability control and seatbelt pre-tensioners.

The 2016 Hyundai Elantra, on the other hand, features all of these as well as more advanced safety features including a more sophisticated, stability control system, overhead airbags and an in-built security system. As a result, the Hyundai has better crash test ratings such as frontal barrier crash, side barrier and overall side crash ratings. You will therefore be much safer in the Hyundai compared to the Toyota.

Some of the standard technology features in the Hyundai include keyless entry, cruise control, telescopic steering and an audio system with capabilities such as online streaming.


The Hyundai Elantra performs better than the Toyota Corolla, and has a softer and more comfortable feel no matter what surface you are driving on. The base Elantra ships with a 1.8 liter straight-4 engine producing 145 horsepower and 130 lb-ft of torque at 4700 rpm. Despite having the same engine size, the Toyota produces less power (132 horsepower) and torque (128 lb-ft at 4400rpm). The front wheel drive Elantra also has better suspension compared to the Toyota.

The Bottom Line

These are just some of the features that make the Hyundai Elantra better than the Toyota Corolla; there are many more. You will be better off with the Elantra rather than the Toyota Corolla since the Hyundai is safer, more luxurious and performs better than the Toyota.
