The 2016 Honda Civic is the best compact car on the market today. Well, the Civic is more efficient than the Elantra. It’s also roomier, and it offers Honda’s excellent Lane Watch blind spot camera, along with better performance. The Honda Civic has a level of class and sophistication that is truly praise-worthy. Both of these vehicles hold their own in the sedan class of vehicles, but we believe the Civic provides superior reliability and performance for its price. The 10th-generation Civic is a real game-changer, and it’s designed with exceptional attention to handling, design and performance.

While looks aren’t everything, we personally feel that the Honda Civic sports a much more stylish design than the Hyundai Elantra. The vehicle offers a superbly manufactured aerodynamic design that is sure to draw eyes as it moves effortlessly through the city. The Elantra also offers an aerodynamic design, but it looks a bit outdated with its angular lines and blockish feel. In contrast, the Civic has rounded edges and a beautiful exterior that really makes the vehicle stand out. Every feature of the Honda Civic has been improved upon from the 2015 version. LED lights are now included, and it surpasses many of the exterior features offered by the 2016 Hyundai.

The Hyundai Elantra comes with a four-cylinder engine, which is fine for most basic driving situations. However, the Civic offers the option to get a turbo that can dramatically increase acceleration. The new Civic outperforms the Elantra with a 158 horsepower 2.0-liter engine in the Honda, and a 1.8-liter 145 horsepower engine in the Elantra. There is also more torque available in the Civic with 138 lb-ft compared to 130 lb-ft in the Elantra. With the Honda, you’ll get up to 40 miles per gallon on the highway. In comparison, the Elantra taps out at about 37 miles per gallon.

The Elantra is no slouch when it comes to technology. It boasts a BlueLink Telematic system, Bluetooth hands-free phone system and steering wheel mounted audio controls as well as several other features. It offers plenty of features to keep up with the competition.

The Honda features more relevant and modern technology, including Apple Car Play, Google Android Auto and SMS text messaging for a more effective mobile workstation. The Civic supports the latest in mobile technology, and it’s designed to keep pace with you.

The 2016 Hyundai Elantra may have surpassed the features of the 2015 Honda Civic; however, the new generation of Honda Civic has more than caught up, and it’s a powerful, elegant vehicle that you must see for yourself.
