The 2017 Hyundai Elantra vs. the 2016 Honda Accord


2017 Hyundai Elantra

2016 Honda Accord

Luxury and power merge in the new 2017 Hyundai Elantra, which brings to Hilton Head drivers a unique blend of awesome engine power, excellent rates of fuel efficiency, and a smooth drive, as well as a range of exciting technologies to keep you and everyone on board entertained and informed, and a collection of powerful safety devices. But perhaps the best way to see the strengths of the new Elantra is to compare it to one of its arch-nemeses, the 2016 Honda Accord.   


Ample Power 

The new Elantra's first area of high performance is engine power, giving drivers an especially  forceful engine. 

  • The 2017 Hyundai Elantra - The Elantra can be equipped with a 2.0L Atkinson Cycle 4-cylinder engine, giving it 147 hp. Meanwhile, a 6-speed automatic transmission system allows the Elantra to reach a peek efficiency rate of 38 mpg on the highway. At the same time, the Elantra's Drive Mode Select gives you the option of choosing from  three different steering modes-Normal, Eco, and Sport-given your driving conditions. 

  • The 2016 Honda Accord - While it is true that the 2016 Honda Accord boasts a 2.4L I4 16-Valve DOHC DI engine that generates 185 hp and gets between 27 and 31 mpg in the city and 40 and 41 on the highway, it's also about $5,000 more expensive than the Elantra, meaning that you're paying a pretty penny for that extra horsepower. 

Advanced Technologies 

Secondly, the Elantra is also outfitted with a bevy of awesome audio and entertainment technologies. 

  • The 2017 Hyundai Elantra - The Elantra gives you Bluetooth, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and an awesome Tech Package, with a 3.5-inch TFT monochromatic cluster display, LED Daytime Running Lights, a Proximity Key, and self-heating front seats.

  • The 2016 Honda Accord - The Accord gives you AM/FM Radio Seek, as well as  steering-wheel-mounted controls and an Automatic Climate Control system, but the vehicle does not come equipped with the same sort of Tech Package made available by the Elantra.

Stellar Safety Devices

Finally, the Elantra is well-equipped with a raft of safety devices for your protection. 

  • The 2017 Hyundai Elantra - To take just a few examples, the 2017 Elantra gives you a Forward Collision Warning System, Lane Departure, and Lane Keep Assist programs.

  • The 2016 Honda Accord - The Accord comes with a Forward Collision Warning system, Collision Mitigation Braking, and some Lane departure systems, too, but remember that price: whatever you get with the Accord, you're paying $5,000 more for.
