The 2020 Honda Civic and 2020 Hyundai Elantra are popular choices for Denver drivers who are in the market for a sporty and well-equipped compact car. However, when comparing the Honda Civic vs. Hyundai Elantra performance specs and standard safety features, the Honda model comes out ahead. Learn more in this Civic vs. Elantra comparison from Planet Honda.



Civic or Elantra: Performance

The entry-level 2020 Civic LX is powered by a 2.0L DOHC i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine, and while the 2020 Elantra base model comes with the same size engine, it can’t quite match the Honda’s output:

  • Honda Civic Engine – Base
    • 158 hp
    • 138 lb-ft of torque
  • Honda Elantra Engine – Base
    • 147 hp
    • 132 lb-ft of torque

Civic or Elantra: Fuel Economy

Getting the best gas mileage possible is important to many Lakewood-area drivers, and by upgrading to the Honda Civic Sedan EX or EX-L models equipped with a standard Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), you’ll enjoy an EPA-estimated 32 mpg city and 42 mpg highway*. The most efficient 2020 Elantra trim can only get up to 41 mpg on the highway.

Civic or Elantra: Safety Features

When it comes to advanced safety technology, Arvada drivers will be happy to know that all of the Honda Civic Sedan trim levels come standard with the Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver assist systems. As you can see below, the Hyundai Elantra doesn’t include the wide array of safety features that come with the Civic.
