The Differences Are Undeniable

Select a category below to learn more about how the Hyundai Elantra compares to the Toyota Corolla.


Hyundai Elantra

Right off the bat, the Elantra showcases its prowess provided by its standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. This motor achieves a crisp 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the Corolla’s standard 1.8L 4-cylinder engine falls behind with just 139 horsepower and 126 lb-ft of torque.

Power and Efficiency

It’s worth noting that both cars come standard with a front-wheel drivetrain. Still, the Elantra’s optional 6-speed manual transmission and 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission with SHIFTRONIC® are worth considering for those who want a sportier feel in their daily drives. The Corolla also offers a manual transmission but lacks the swift-shifting power of a dual clutch transmission.

The Elantra’s standard Smartstream® Intelligent Variable Transmission is similar to the Corolla’s Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). Nevertheless, the Elantra boasts an EPA-estimated 33 city/43 highway MPG, which tops the Corolla’s EPA-estimated 30 city/38 highway MPG rating.1



Hyundai Elantra

The Elantra and Corolla come standard with numerous technologies to take advantage of on your travels.

Infotainment Options

For example, the infotainment systems provided in both sedans feature:

  • Apple CarPlay®
  • Android Auto™
  • SiriusXM®

There are some clear differences in their offerings, though. The Elantra’s standard 8-inch touchscreen display bests the standard 7-inch touchscreen found in the Corolla. On top of that, the Elantra’s available 10.25-inch touchscreen display again outshines the largest available screen size in the Corolla, which is just eight inches.

Bluelink® Connected Car Service brings you next-level connectivity. You can lock, unlock, and even start the Elantra right from your smartphone. It also lets you manage the climate controls for a seamless transition between home and the road. The Corolla offers a similar feature called Remote Connect.



Hyundai Elantra

The Elantra and Corolla provide thoughtful safety suites that were engineered with your safety in mind.

Smart Safety Systems

Both packages come standard on either vehicle and share a colorful palette of standard safety technologies, including:

  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • High Beam Assist

It’s here that the Elantra goes the distance with added safety features. Its standard Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist will help you keep track of vehicles lurking in those hard-to-see places. The same technologies are only available with the Corolla.

In addition, Safe Exit Warning and Driver Attention Warning are only available with the Elantra, further edging out the 2022 Corolla when it comes to safety and reliability.
