Elantra vs. Civic
Drive Away in a Sedan Packed with Value

Are you in the market for a new, affordable car? When choosing your next 4-door wonder on wheels, it’s good to get a clear picture of what each vehicle out there can do for you. While 2020 Honda Civic may be the most common ride on the market, 2020 Hyundai Elantra is making moves in a big way. Find out which sedan comes out on top as we put them head to head to determine the best whip for drivers in Lethbridge!

The Tech Spec Rundown

Two decades into this millennium and cars are finally starting to do pretty amazing things. Both Elantra and Civic bring you awesome features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for easy connectivity and unlimited music streaming options. Infotainment choices are similar here, with each model offering both a 5” or 7” touchscreen display depending on trim choice and upgrades.

On the safety side of the tech coin, 2020 Civic and Elantra give drivers access to smart safety systems including lane departure warnings, adaptive cruise control and collision warning/mitigation. We’re going to be straight with you here, 2020 Hyundai Elantra and 2020 Honda Civic are both serving up best-in-class technology to the find people of Alberta.

Handle the Drive like a Pro

Life near The Rockies can throw you some curveballs. When it comes to unexpected turns, 2020 Hyundai Elantra takes the lead, boasting an impressive turning radius of just 8.7 feet. At almost double the size (17.7 feet), 2020 Honda Civic just doesn’t give you the same kind of maneuverability whether you’re whipping down mountain passes or wiggling into a space at the Centre Village Mall parking lot.

Another key point to note is that Elantra Eco dishes out more torque than Civic, giving you the oomph you need when travelling at lower speeds. While civic does win by a smidge in horsepower, when you factor in Elantra’s larger fuel tank (meaning fewer trips to the gas station for you), Elantra edges forward in this segment of the battle.

Pure Value

Yeah, that’s right -- we went there. Not only does 2020 Elantra have the lower starting price (and lower fully-loaded price) when compared to 2020 Civic, but its warranty is UNTOUCHABLE. No, really, hear us out. 

Civic offers a 3 year/60,000 km (whichever happens first) warranty for Lethbridge drivers. That’s pretty standard for auto companies today. Elantra, on the other hand, has no fear when it comes to the reliability of our product. Hyundai dishes out a 5 year/100,000 km warranty, standing by our clients for far longer. So, knowing that, it’s clear that Hyundai puts more trust in their vehicles lasting for the long haul.
