2019 Hyundai Elantra vs the competition

2019 Honda Civic -- The Honda Civic is the gold standard for this class, offering an excellent interior, a lot of new equipment, fuel-efficient engines and passenger room galore.

2019 Mazda3 -- The Mazda3 is among our favorite compact cars, as it offers sharp handling, sharp styling, excellent fuel economy and a lot of the Elantra's gadgets, plus available AWD.

2019 Toyota Corolla -- The Corolla is not especially sporty or loaded with features, but it gets the job done, touting a comfortable ride and long-lasting durability. Every Corolla also comes standard with a pre-collision system, lane-departure warning, auto high beams and adaptive cruise control.

Used Hyundai Sonata -- If you like the Elantra's equipment and styling but need more space, you should consider a used version of the brand's midsize Sonata sedan, which feels like a larger version of the Elantra.
