Elantra vs. Civic: Which Compact Car Is Right for You?

If you’re looking for a commuter car, there are a number of compact cars that offer excellent fuel economy, a spacious cabin, and high safety ratings. The Hyundai Elantra and Honda Civic are two such vehicles.

The Hyundai Elantra was redesigned for 2017 and has not changed much since then. For 2018, Hyundai shuffled the trim lineups and redesigned the Elantra GT hatchback model.

The Honda Civic was all-new in 2016, and received new body styles and trims in 2017, including the hatchback, Si, and Type R models. There have been no major changes to the Civic since its introduction aside from those grade and body style additions.
