2021 Hyundai Elantra vs. 2021 Nissan Sentra

The 2021 Hyundai Elantra carries with it a reliable infotainment system. It also is praised for its excellent fuel economy and its smooth, gentle ride. Add to that, you will also find a roomy cabin inside.

The 2021 Nissan Sentra, on the other hand, is one ride that has been loaded with plenty of features. In fact, it now comes standard with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It has an upscale cabin as well.

Design & Style

The 2021 Hyundai Elantra has been designed to sit up to five people. Inside it, you will notice that adults will surely be pleased with its interior dimensions. There is plenty of room both on the front and rear seats. Behind them, there is a total of 14.2 cubic feet in trunk capacity. This is considered above-average in its class. The cabin is attractive too as it uses some of the best materials you will ever find in the market.

The 2021 Nissan Sentra, meanwhile, is gifted with a five-seating capacity. This comes standard with cloth upholstery and supportive seats in front. Despite its promise to seat five, it is best to leave the rear seats to smaller children in order to reach that potential. Taller occupants will not want bending their knees and feeling cramped when seated in that area. There are plenty of hard plastics inside the cabin too, thus making the ride feel dated, rather than modern.

Technology & Safety

When it comes to technology and safety, there are plenty of logical menus found in the Elantra’s infotainment system. This one has an eight-inch touch screen basic setup which can be upgraded to a larger 10.25-inch screen. It also has support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, plus it is equipped with HD radio, Bluetooth, two USB ports, four speakers, and voice recognition. Safety wise, it has a long list to offer. Among them are safe exit warning, high-beam assist, lane follow assist, lane keep assist, driver attention monitoring, automatic emergency braking, and rearview camera.

In the case of the Nissan Sentra, there is an infotainment system with a seven-inch touch screen. It has physical controls that are found within reach, but despite that, there is not much to be happy about. In fact, the screen does not display the kind of graphics that you want. It supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as a USB port, four speakers, and Bluetooth. Safety features are few for this ride. It only has a rearview camera, automatic high-beam headlights, driver attention monitor, and lane departure warning.


The 2021 Elantra comes in various engine trims. The base is loaded with a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter setup which can carry up to 147 horsepower. There is the N Line trim that can put off 201 horsepower, with a more potent version that generates 275 horsepower.

Carrying the four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine under its hood, the 2021 Nissan Sentra can only produce up to 149 horsepower. This engine is not as powerful enough as the options that the Elantra provides.

The Bottom Line

With great design and style features as well as reliable technologies to watch out for, the 2021 Hyundai Elantra is a much better choice than the Sentra. Consider how pleasant its engines are too, and you will love it even more.
