2018 Honda Civic vs. 2018 Hyundai Elantra

If you want to drive around Edison in a compact car that offers plenty of features for an accessible price, the 2018 Honda Civic vs 2018 Hyundai Elantra are both solid options, and reviewers agree. But if you want peak performance, more available features, more space, and top-notch Honda safety rating, the Honda Civic may be your best bet.


The standard engine in the 2018 Civic delivers 158 hp while still getting 40 mpg highway**. The Elantra, on the other hand, is less impressive with standard power ratings of just 147 hp and a standard fuel-efficiency rating of 38 mpg highway.


The Civic is an ideal small sedan for young families in and around Union because of the comprehensive Honda CIvic safety features. The NHTSA awarded the 2018 Honda Civic sedan a five-star overall safety rating as well as five stars for front and side crash safety tests.* The Elantra does not provide the same level of reliability as it only receives four stars from the NHTSA for overall safety.

Interior Features

The introductory trim of the Civic won’t overextend your budget, yet it’ll still come with a long list of standard interior features. These include automatic climate controls for perfect cabin temperatures, cruise control to help you relax on long drives, and a rearview mirror camera to safely backup more safely. These same features are available on the Elantra, but you’ll have to pay more to get them. Get more within the Honda Civic interior.
