2 of 11

The Basics

The Toyota Corolla and Hyundai Elantra are both compact sedans with seating for five passengers. Both cars come powered by four-cylinder engines and are available only with front-wheel drive. They’re very close in length, width, and weight.

The Corolla is in its eleventh generation, which started with the 2012 model year. Since the 1970s, it’s been one of the best-selling cars in the world, with 40 million sold as of mid-2013. Toyota adds a new Special Edition trim level to the Corolla lineup this year. The 2017 Elantra is fully redesigned and marks the model’s sixth generation.
