Has your search for a compact car that is loaded with value taken you to the 2021 Hyundai Elantra and the 2021 Toyota Corolla? With competitive, comparable base prices, these models are natural options to consider. However, when their many differences come into focus, selecting the model that is most appealing to you and most well-suited for your lifestyle is easy to do. How do the 2021 Hyundai Elantra and the 2021 Toyota Corolla compare?


The 2021 Elantra is a next-generation version that reflects extensive updates throughout. Each of the three trim levels carries a 2.0-liter, I-4 engine under the hood. This 147-horsepower engine is paired with idle-stop tech, a Smartstream intelligent variable transmission, front-wheel drive, three driving modes, a front stabilizer bar, a coupled torsion beam suspension system, coil springs in the front row, and more. The Corolla’s base trim is powered by a similar powertrain mated to a continuously variable transmission. It produces 141 horsepower.


As a next-generation model, the 2021 Elantra displays new styling from bumper to bumper. On the nose, the pattern on the reshaped grille radiates up and out toward the edgy headlights. The sides and lower-front fascia have been sculpted with geometric precision. The 2021 Toyota Corolla’s exterior has a pointed nose with a sharp descent through the hood and a grille that juts in front of the rest of the nose’s features. The primary definition on the sides is a horizontal accent that runs along the lower door panels.


The Elantra’s interior is completely redesigned as well, and its most prominent interior feature is the 10.25-inch display screen with high resolution that sits on top of the dashboard. A navigation system, remote access, Bluetooth tech, wireless device charging, and a Bose sound system are some of the 2021 Elantra’s features. The 2021 Corolla, on the other hand, has a climate management system, ambient lighting, USB ports, a sound system, and other essentials.
