Passenger Volume and Cargo Capacity
Even with its much more inspiring and sporty exterior design, the all-new Honda Civic still manages to offer more space for passengers and cargo alike than its rival from Hyundai. Overall passenger volume in the Civic sedan is over two cubic feet more than in the Elantra. The back seats are especially roomier in the Civic, as the Honda provides more second-row leg room and shoulder room than what you will get in the Hyundai. The Civic provides more space behind the rear seats, too; the slanting roofline design of the Civic helps to provide a taller trunk space than in the Elantra, along with more maximum cargo capacity.
Standard Fuel Economy
As both the 2016 Honda Civic and the Hyundai Elantra are of similar size and compete for the same types of drivers, you would expect them to offer similar fuel economy, right? Well, that is not quite the case, as the all-new Civic's 2.0-liter engine, when paired with an efficient continuously variable transmission (CVT), helps the Honda sedan achieve a remarkable 31 city and 41 highway mpg rating. Even with a smaller engine, at 1.8-liters, the Hyundai Elantra can only manage 28 city and 38 highway mpg when paired with an automatic transmission. Overall, the all-new Civic tops the Elantra in fuel economy by a whopping three mpg! It is clear that Hyundai can't complete with Honda when it comes to building highly fuel-efficient vehicles that are still a blast to drive.
Not only does the 2016 Honda Civic provide better fuel economy than the Hyundai Elantra, but it is also more powerful. The potent 2.0-liter engine lurking beneath the hood of the all-new Civic produces 158 horses and 138 lb-ft of torque. The Elantra's 1.8-liter is down 15 hp when compared with the Civic. If the difference in standard horsepower isn't enough to tip the scales in favor of the Civic in your eyes, keep in mind that the Civic is also lighter than the Elantra. That's right, even with a larger, more powerful engine, and more passenger and cargo room, the Civic weighs in about 70 pounds lighter. You will surely feel a difference in power and performance between these two rival compacts! To experience the thrill of the all-new Civic's powertrain, not to mention its fuel-sipping tendencies, visit Largo Honda for a test drive.

Style and Design
The stunning, all-new design of the 2016 Honda Civic really turns heads! Its sculpted lines, slanted roofline, and wraparound taillight design help the Civic stand out from the croud of less inspiring compact cars. Of course, its cabin has also received a complete redesign, too, and includes the very latest technologies that Honda has to offer. Hyundai's 2016 Elantra is an ageing design; in fact, it is the final year before the Elantra is redesigned for 2017. While the Elantra has been refreshed slightly over the past few years, its style and technology are not exactly cutting-edge like the Civic's. The 2016 Civic is offered in both a sedan and coupe body style, each of which gives off a very sporty character that the Elantra just can't match. If you want to drive the most stylish compact car on the block, or in the city for that matter, choose the all-new, redesigned 2016 Honda Civic!
If you want a compact car that is big on safety, then you should take a serious look at the all-new Civic. The 2016 Honda Civic has earned five-star ratings across the board from federal safety tests. The IIHS crash-tested the all-new Civic sedan and has given it top "Good" ratings in each category of testing -- and the top "Superior" rating in the front collision avoidance category! The Civic even earned the agency's highly coveted Top Safety Pick+ award, too. Hyundai's Elantra is also a safe vehicle, maybe just not to the level of the all-new Civic, though.
