The 2017 Hyundai Elantra vs. the 2016 Toyota Camry

2017 Hyundai Elantra

2016 Toyota Camry

Lowcountry drivers, you might want to sit down for a second for this: the 2017 Hyundai Elantra has arrived, and word on the street is that it has changed the automotive landscape for good. With a mighty engine that promises huge amounts of horsepower as well as high rates of efficiency, and a collection of technologies and safety devices to keep you as secure as possible, this car blows by the competition. Compare it to its rival, the 2016 Toyota Camry, for example, if you're having doubts. 


First of all, the Elantra is massively powerful, giving drivers an engine which is as efficient as it is powerful.

  • The 2017 Hyundai Elantra - Not only does the 2017 Elantra feature a 2.0L Atkinson Cycle 4-cylinder engine that produces 147 hp, but it also offers wildly high rates of efficiency, giving you 38 mpg on the highway when it is outfitted with a 6-speed automatic transmission, for example. But at the same time, the Elantra's Drive Mode Select, which provides driving modes like Normal, Eco, and Sport, lets you optimize performance in all conditions and on all surfaces. 
  • The 2016 Toyota Camry - The Camry is powered by a decent 2.5L 4-Cylinder DOHC 16-valve Dual VVT-i 6-speed automatic engine that can produce 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque, but it does not give you the same rates of efficiency, nor does it come with Drive Mode Select. 


And then there's the Elantra's sophisticated technologies, which make this car one of the smartest around.

  • The 2017 Hyundai Elantra - The Elantra makes it possible for drivers to plug their smartphones directly into the car's console with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capabilities, but you'll also get Bluetooth and an impressive Tech Package, which boasts gorgeous LED Daytime Running Lights as well as a 3.5-inch TFT monochromatic cluster display.
  • The 2016 Toyota Camry - While the Camry offers an Entune audio system, it does not come with the Elantra's Tech Package or offer anything like the Elantra's set of tech specs. 


Last but not least, safety. Here, too, the Elantra excels beyond the pack, offering drivers a wide variety of systems and devices to keep you as safe as possible.

  • The 2017 Hyundai Elantra - Forward Collision Warning System. Lane Departure. Lane Keep Assist. And that's just three of the devices embedded in the Elantra to keep you safe.
  • The 2016 Toyota Camry - Like most other Toyotas, the Camry offers a Star Safety System with a number of solid safety devices. However, its Pre-Collision System is made available to drivers in two of its trims.
