Elantra vs. Civic vs. Sentra


The new 2017 Hyundai Elantra is stylish, bold and innovative. This feature-packed winner has proven its worth again and again. Honda Civic can't beat its base MSRP and while Nissan Sentra comes in just under... the old saying "You get what you pay for" rings true as Elantra's features blow Sentra away.

With rich safety features like HID Headlights with Dynamic Light Bending, Automatic Emergency Braking w/Pedestrian Detection, Smart Cruise Control and Lane Keep Assist System, Hyundai Elantra excels where other compact sedans fall short. When it comes to touchscreen displays, size absolutely matters as Elanta's large 8-inch screen exceeds Civic's 7-inch display and is a whopping 38% larger than Sentra's puny 5.8-inch screen. Elantra brings style to the table with it's available 18-inch Alloy Wheels, not available on Civic or Sentra base models.

Backed by America's Best Warranty, Hyundai Elantra gives you the assurance of a 10 Year/100,000 Mile Limited Powertrain Warranty. Honda and Nissan doesn't come close. Take a look at some points below and see why Hyundai Elantra is the smart choice!
