2018 Hyundai Elantra vs, 2018 Honda Civic

  • Safety should always be a main concern, which is why the new Elantra offers available safety features like blind-spot detection and rear cross-traffic alert. The new Civic, however, does not offer either feature.
  • The Elantra offers available HID headlights with Dynamic Bending Light, providing you with better vision at night and around bends. The Civic doesn't offer comparable headlights.
  • The hands-free smart trunk on the new Elantra allows you to open the trunk simply by standing near it with the proximity key fob. The Civic doesn't offer a comparable feature and will instead leave you fumbling for your keys.
  • The Elantra comes with a five-years/60,000 mile new vehicle warranty. The Civic comes with a three-years/36,000 mile new vehicle warranty. The Elantra comes with a ten-years/100,000 mile powertrain limited warranty. The Civic comes with a five-years/60,000 mile powertrain limited warranty. When you choose the Elantra, you not only get better warranty coverage, you get to enjoy peace of mind long into the future.
