2019 Corolla vs Elantra: Engine Performance & Efficiency
Despite being in the same compact sedan class, there are a few notable differences between these respectable vehicles. They each include a 4-cylinder engine under the hood. However, the Toyota Corolla comes paired with the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Intelligence and Shift Mode while the Hyundai Elantra comes with a 6-speed manual transmission. The CVT included with the Corolla has two advantages in that it doesn’t require the driver to manually shift, and it provides smooth and efficient gear transitions, resulting in its EPA-estimated 28/36/32 MPG city/highway/combined,* while the Elantra gets 26/36/29 MPG city/highway/combined.
Media & Technology
Each sedan includes sophisticated infotainment systems within their respective cabins. The Toyota Corolla includes the 6.1-inch Entune™ Audio system that includes voice recognition technology that lets you select your media through voice commands. The Hyundai Elantra, on the other hand, includes a 5-inch touchscreen. The voice recognition technology, however, requires an upgrade to the next trim level.
The Corolla and Elantra each include AM/FM radios and USB/auxiliary inputs for portable media players. The sedans also include Bluetooth® technology, which work for hands-free phone calls as well as audio streaming into the respective sound systems.
Driver-Assistance Safety Technology
The Toyota Corolla comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ . This suite of features includes driver-assistance technology that works with sensors mounted onto the outside of the vehicle to measure factors like distance and speed to provide ample warnings to the driver. The Toyota Corolla comes with features like the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams, and the Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. This feature keeps a safe distance from the vehicle ahead while maintaining the set cruising speed, and will actually slow down to compensate for the flow of traffic. The Hyundai Elantra actually offers similar driver-assistance technology features, but only after a trim level upgrade.
