Match 2021 Honda Civic vs. Hyundai Elantra and it becomes immediately obvious why the Civic is such an acclaimed and high-selling vehicle the world over. It moves a step ahead of the Elantra in every way that counts – to see what we mean, go ahead and compare them on:

  • Horsepower and Torque
  • Space and Features
  • Safety Features

CR-V vs. Santa Fe: Horsepower and Torque

You’ll only find a single engine available with the 2021 Hyundai Elantra, and an uninspiring one at that. The sole 2.0L inline 4-cylinder makes up to just 147 hp and 132 lb-ft of torque.

In contrast, the Honda Civic offers two engines which both offer sportier and more robust performance:

  • Standard 2.0L Four-Cylinder: Makes up to 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque.
  • Available 1.5L Turbocharged 4-Cylinder: Makes up to 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque.

Civic vs. Elantra: Space and Features

The Honda Civic takes considerably more cargo than the Elantra by offering up to 15.1 cubic feet in the trunk vs. just 14.2 cubic feet in the Hyundai. It also provides several advantages when you turn to comfort and convenience features, including:

  • Heated Front and Outboard Rear Seats: The Elantra only offers heated front seats.
  • 8-Way Power Driver’s Seat: The Elantra only offers a 6-way power driver’s seat.
  • 10-Speaker Premium Sound System: The Elantra only offers an 8-speaker system.

Civic vs. Elantra: Safety Features

The Civic is the only model of the two that fits a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera able to deliver three different viewing modes as you reverse, and it continues to impress by offering safety technology that isn’t available with the Hyundai Elantra at any price, including:

  • Honda LaneWatch™: Signal to left or right and a camera will play from beneath the appropriate side mirror to show the blind spot area on your in-dash display.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM): Start crossing common edge-of-road markers and the Civic will apply gentle corrective steering pressure to bring you back on to the road.
