2017 Hyundai Elantra vs. 2017 Chevrolet Cruze

In today’s economy, many cars are equipped with do-it-alls. Most mid-sized sedans are styled to fit the current features and trends that sometimes even give their more expensive rivals a good run for the money. Vehicles that are soaring high in the list are four-door sedans that are fighting head to head for shoppers’ attention looking to buy cars with reasonable performance. The Hyundai Elantra has been redesigned with better and more advanced features to offer not only reasonable performance but also create a luxurious feel for drivers looking for elegance in a car. Two mid-size sedans that compete for shoppers’ attention include the 2017 Hyundai Elantra and the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze. Between the two car models, which is the better choice?

Design & Style

Both the 2017 Hyundai Elantra and 2017 Chevrolet Cruze are relatively large inside and offer up a sizable interior room with usable space for rear seaters and more than enough room for front passengers. The 2017 Elantra design includes increased soundproofing which cannot be said for the 2017 Cruze whose turbo motor tends to be noticed. When it comes to entertainment, the Elantra has advanced infotainment systems. The Cruze has 4G LTE WIFI hotspot however it cannot match the advanced technological innovation of the Elantra. The Elantra has more additional features like the 7 inch LCD touch screen display and a Bluetooth.

Technology & Safety

When it comes to safety features, both cars have passenger airbag, ABS, electronic breakforce distribution, central locking and head lamp beam adjuster. However, the Elantra has more safety features that are included to ensure the safety of the passengers and the pedestrians as well. The Elantra offers more safety options which include rear facing systems which are blind-spot monitors, parking assist, forward-collision warning system and rear-cross traffic alert.

Both the Cruze and Elantra seat five but the 2017 Hyundai Elantra offers 2 powertrains across its three trims which include Eco, Limited and SE. the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze offers only on powertrain across 4 trims which include Premier, LT, LS and L.


The Cruze has a direct injection fuel system while the Elantra has sequential MPI. The 2017 Hyundai Elantra is powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine and the Chevrolet Cruze gets a standard turbocharged 1.4 litre engine. When it comes to fuel economy, the 2017 Chevrolet Cruz is rated 33 to 35 combined mpg but the fuel economy for 2017 Hyundai Elantra is class leading.

The Bottom Line

When it comes to value, clearly the 2017 Hyundai Elantra offers more and is in a class of its own. Both cars may look similar in most aspects but the Elantra offers more features and power compared to the Cruze. The Elantra enables drivers to enjoy more benefits of a luxury car and they don’t have to spend as much as the more expensive car models that offer the same features.
