Following a complete redesign in 2021, the 2022 Hyundai Elantra remains largely unchanged although it loses none of its stylish and sporty looks. The sharply creased body of the Elantra ensures that this is a vehicle that will still turn heads and that will stand out anywhere that it is parked. Come check out this amazing vehicle at Springfield Hyundai, Springfield PA today. In this article, we compare the 2022 Elantra with the 2022 Ford Focus. Carrying on with its tradition of reliability and good performance. We are then going to suggest which of the two vehicles you should consider purchasing this year.
Design & Style
As stated, the 2022 Hyundai Elantra remains unchanged for 2022 but the 2021 redesign was so comprehensive that buyers of this amazing sedan will still be thrilled by its aesthetics. Hyundai fixed the cabin space issue and the 2022 Elantra is as roomy as any other sedan in its category. The dashboard area has a futuristic look with an LED light that runs across the dash for an even more futuristic look. Luggage space is also generous and we found that we could fit at least six standard cases in the trunk. The 2022 Focus also comes with few changes to its exterior design. While highly dependable, the 2022 still struggles with limited cabin and trunk space. As a family-oriented vehicle, this puts it at a disadvantage when compared with most other sedans in this category including the 2022 Elantra.
Technology & Safety
Buyers of the 2022 Elantra are going to love the fact that Android Auto and Apple carPlay all come as standard in all trims of the Elantra. It also features a large LCD display that spans most of the dash. This features the instrument display as well as the infotainment screen. On the basic models, you get an 8-inch infotainment display but this can be upgraded to a 10-inch display for a better experience. The Ford Focus similarly comes with an 8-inch infotainment system that is fairly easy to use although the graphics could be better.
With the 2022 Elantra, buyers have the option to purchase various engine trims including a gas-saving hybrid model. The standard model comes with a four-cylinder engine that turns out about 150 horsepower. This makes the Elantra fairly speedy even when carrying a full load. Transmission is via CVT which provides for a smooth driving experience. The Elantra also includes a superb suspension that makes for a comfortable ride even when cruising over uneven roads. With the 2022 Focus, buyers get to choose from different engine trims although we would suggest going for the hybrid model known as the EcoBoost for the best performance. Transmission is via a six-speed automatic transmission and although performance is slightly sluggish, it should be ok for most drivers.
The Bottom Line
These two vehicles have a lot to offer discerning drivers. However, it is important to remember that this is a category where many buyers will be thinking of ride comfort and cabin/trunk space. In these aspects, the 2022 Hyundai Elantra emerges the winner. It offers a futuristing yet comfortable cabin, plenty of space and excellent performance regardless of the trim that you go for.
