The 2016 Honda Civic vs. the 2016 Hyundai Elantra

The 2016 Honda Civic and the 2016 Hyundai Elantra are smart, fun to drive, and efficient small cars. If you’re looking for a car here in the Frankfort and Orland Park, IL area that meets those criteria, then you’ve found two top choices. So which one do you choose? Take a look at how they compare below!

Performance and Efficiency

You probably put miles per gallon first, but that’s not the only thing that drivers look for in a powertrain. See how these models compare.

First up, the 2016 Hyundai Elantra uses a 1.8L four-cylinder engine that generates 145 hp and 130 lb-ft of torque. With automatic transmission, the Elantra earns an EPA estimated 28 mpg city/38 mpg highway/32 mpg combined.

Meanwhile, the 2016 Honda Civic gets a 2.0L four-cylinder good for 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque and an EPA estimated 31 mpg city/41 mpg highway/35 mpg combined* when equipped with continuously variable transmission. A turbocharged 1.5L engine is available for 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque, and an even better EPA estimated 31 mpg city/42 mpg highway/35 mpg combined with continuously variable transmission.

With the Civic you get both more performance and power, as well as more miles per gallon.

Features and Options
