Comparing the 2021 Honda Civic to the 2021 Hyundai Elantra is a great way to understand just what makes the Civic such a legendary compact sedan. To see exactly what we mean, go ahead and match them up on:

  • Power and Performance
  • Standard and Available Features
  • Safety Technology

Civic vs. Elantra: Power and Performance

The Honda Civic is renowned across the globe for providing track-like agility and acceleration beyond standards set by rival compact sedans. Where the 2021 Hyundai Elantra comes with a 147 hp, 132 lb-ft of torque 2.0L inline 4-cylinder across all trims, the Civic turns every journey into an experience to remember with the following two state of the art powerhouses:

  • 2.0L Four-Cylinder: Fitted as standard to make up to 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque.
  • 1.5L Turbocharged 4-Cylinder: Available to make up to 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque.

Civic vs. Elantra: Standard and Available Features

You’ll find several standard features of the Honda Civic that aren’t available with the Hyundai Elantra at any price, including a handy Multi-Angle Rearview Camera and Speed-Sensitive Volume Compensation (SVC).

That superiority carries over to available features, with only the Civic offering:

  • Heated Front and Outboard Rear Seats
  • 8-Way Power Driver’s Seat
  • 10-Speaker Premium Sound System

Civic vs. Elantra: Safety Technology

A generous range of sophisticated driver assistance technologies come fitted as standard with both models, but the Honda Civic still offers a couple of safety features you won’t find with any Hyundai Elantra, including:

  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM): A forward-facing camera recognizes common edge-of-road markers and provides corrective steering pressure if you start to cross them.
  • Honda LaneWatch™: Provides a video feed of your blind spot area on the in-dash display to help prevent unsafe lane changes.
