2017 Hyundai Elantra vs 2017 Kia Forte at Hilton Head Hyundai near Bluffton

The Hyundai Elantra Dukes it Out with the Competition

Hyundai is renowned for making high-end yet affordable cars that offer the finest in comfort and modern-day amenities. The company has been making quality cars that drivers in the Hilton Head and Hardeeville area love for four decades, and they just keep getting better all the time.

At Hilton Head Hyundai we know we're not supposed to play favorites. But, we can't help ourselves. We love the Hyundai Elantra as a perfect compact car. We proudly recommend it to all of our neighbors and friends as a wonderful, four-door, five-passenger model.

Hilton Head Hyundai has put together this research page for you. We've done our homework, so you can approach your car-shopping experience with all the facts in hand.

The Hyundai Elantra

The Elantra is a compact car from Hyundai that comes in either a sedan style or the GT hatchback style. It first debuted in the United States around 20 years ago and has been one of their most popular models ever since.


The Hyundai Elantra is available in four trim levels, including:


  • Hyundai Elantra SE
  • Hyundai Elantra Eco
  • Hyundai Elantra Limited
  • Hyundai Elantra Sport

All of the Elantra trims come with great features and amenities, even the base trim. Plus, they're all engineered to offer the smoothest and most quiet ride around. The interior of this compact car is so plush and quiet, in fact, that you might think you're driving an expensive luxury brand.


Best of all, we know our customers throughout the Bluffton area will appreciate that the Hyundai Elantra is also an extremely safe car. It has received the best score possible, five out of five stars, in government crash tests

Battle of the Compact Cars

As amazing as we know the Hyundai Elantra is, we also know it's not your only car-buying option. There are plenty of compact cars in the Bluffton, Beaufort, and Hardeeville area that are vying for your attention.

We here at Hilton Head Hyundai want to make your decision-making process as easy as possible. That's why we've put together this comparison page, pitting the Elantra against a similar-sized competing brand, the Kia Forte.

While both cars offer a fun driving experience, the flexibility of either a sedan or a hatchback, and a lot of great features, we think the Hyundai Elantra comes out ahead in a side-by-side comparison of the two. We think you'll agree:

  • Trim levels and features. The Kia model only offers three trims, while the Hyundai has more and gives customers a broader range of choices. Plus, even the base trim of the Elantra has the sought-after features people want, such as automatic headlights, smartphone integration, rearview camera, and a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system. You have to go up trim levels and spend more money on a Kia Forte to get those same exact features.
  • Gas and fuel efficiency. While both cars get similar mpg, the gas tank in the Hyundai Elantra is larger than the one in the Kia Forte. This translates to fewer trips to the gas station for you if your drive the Hyundai Elantra.
  • Engine options. The Hyundai Elantra offers more engine choices to drivers than the Kia Forte. In fact, the Elantra can come of one of three engines - either a base 2.0-liter engine 4-cylinder, a turbocharged 1.4-liter engine 4-cylinder designed for better fuel efficiency, or a sporty 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder.
