2021 Hyundai Elantra vs. 2021 Volkswagen Golf

The 2021 Hyundai Elantra decided to discontinue its GT hatchback model. Despite this decision, though car buyers out there will still find the ride interesting, considering its user-friendly technologies and excellent fuel economy ratings. Of course, do not forget the roomy cabin constructed to accommodate five passengers comfortably.

The 2021 Volkswagen Golf, on the other hand, promises a high-end cabin to its end users. Do not expect much since this does not have any major change when compared to the 2020 edition.

Design & Style

The 2021 Hyundai Elantra has a great amount of trunk space that measures 14.2 cubic feet, just enough to accommodate your usual daily stuff and your weekend getaway needs. This also has ample bolstering that adds to the comfort of its passengers. The cabin is attractive, with soft-touch surfaces and the right choice of upholstery material, perfect for the family.

A hatchback with great cargo space behind the rear seats, the 2021 Golf can carry up to five people. You will find plenty of legroom and headroom on both rows of seats, thus making it comfortable for its users. There are plenty of high-quality and soft-touch surfaces inside, but it is quite understated in terms of design when compared to its rivals, the Elantra included.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Elantra is praised for having a very flexible eight-inch touch screen for its infotainment system. By flexibility, it means that the setup easily responds to user inputs, whether it is to use smartphone integration capabilities both for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, or for other functionalities like the Bluetooth, HD radio, four speakers, and voice recognition. When it comes to safety, you can count on its rearview camera, forward collision warning, rear cross traffic alert, driver attention monitoring, and pedestrian detection.

Carrying a 6.5-inch touch screen for its infotainment system, the Golf lags behind the Elantra in this department. There is nothing unique or special about the graphics display for the interface. It integrates smartphone apps from Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but everything else is a miss for this ride in terms of technology. Let us give it some points for offering the same safety features as that of the Elantra.

Performance

The 2021 Elantra’s base engine is a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter capacity that can reach a result of up to 147 horsepower. There is a version that can put off anywhere from 201 horsepower to 275 horsepower. The Golf’s engine is a turbo inline-four-cylinder, whose results power up to 147 horses.

The Bottom Line

The 2021 Hyundai Elantra knows how to impress with its stunning looks. It is also gifted with a reliable set of technology and safety features. With the option to switch to another engine version, this one definitely puts the Golf behind.
