2017 Hyundai Elantra

2016 Toyota Corolla

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra is burning up streets around Hilton Head with its massively powerful engine which provides drivers with an abundance of horsepower, high rates of efficiency, and a collection of driver assist programs. Yet it also comes equipped with a range of smart technologies to keep you plugged in and informed throughout the drive, as well as a wide selection of safety devices to keep you as safe as possible. In order to see just what distinguishes this car, though, compare it to one of its top competitors: the 2016 Toyota Corolla.


First of all, there's the Elantra's power:

  • The 2017 Hyundai Elantra- The 2017 Hyundai Elantra runs on a 2.0L Atkinson Cycle 4-cylinder engine that generates 147 hp. But it also gives you tremendous rates of efficiency: 38 mpg on the highway, at least when it is outfitted with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Finally, the Elantra comes with Drive Mode Select, enabling you to choose from three driving modes-Normal, Eco, and Sport-depending on the weather condition and driving situation. 
  • The 2016 Toyota Corolla- The 2016 Toyota Corolla runs on a 1.8L 4-Cylinder 4-Speed DOHC 16-valve engine with dual variable valve timing with intelligence (VVT-i), but it only 132 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque.


Then there's the Elantra's technological offerings:

  • The 2017 Hyundai Elantra- With its Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capabilities, the Elantra lets you plug your smartphone directly into the car, and you'll also be able to access even more services through Bluetooth. Likewise, with its Tech Package, the Elantra will give you a 3.5-inch TFT monochromatic cluster display and beautiful LED Daytime Running Lights.
  • The 2016 Toyota Corolla- Sure, the Corolla gives you Entune Premium Audio and App Suite, as well as Pandora for streaming audio, but it does not offer the Elantra's Tech Package.


Finally, the Elantra is a splendidly safe car, with a wide range of safety systems and devices.

  • The 2017 Hyundai Elantra- For example, the Elantra comes with Forward Collision Warning System, Lane Departure, and Lane Keep Assist programs to keep your drive as safe as possible.
  • The 2016 Toyota Corolla- The Corolla comes with a Star Safety System and Tire Pressure Monitor System, but it does not give you the Elantra's particular Forward Collision Warning System.
