Looking to Take Home a 2014 Hyundai Elantra?

Boulder drivers interested in getting behind the wheel of a compact sedan with a variety of standard and available interior accommodations have likely come across the 2014 Hyundai Elantra. Noteworthy comforts drivers can have with this model include:

  • A sunroof
  • Auxiliary audio input and a USB port
  • Push-button start
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • A six-speaker sound system

The Hyundai Elantra cabin might offer customers a certain level of convenience, but this vehicle just doesn’t stack up to the 2014 Honda Civic when it comes to safety, efficiency, and smooth drivability.

The standard 1.8L 4-cylinder engine of the new Honda Civic saves drivers money at the pump when it’s mated to the optional automatic transmission. It gets an EPA-estimated 30 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway*. The new Hyundai Elantra is also outfitted with a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine, but it gets an EPA-estimated 28 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway when paired with its available automatic transmission.

In order to provide optimum road grip without sacrificing comfortable driving dynamics, the Honda Civic has completely independent front and rear suspensions. The Hyundai Elantra only has a semi-independent rear suspension, which creates handling that isn’t nearly as smooth. For added convenience, a remote vehicle starting system is available on the 2014 Civic with an automatic transmission. This feature is not a possibility with the latest Elantra.
