Used Hyundai Elantra vs. Used Honda Civic



Looking for a compact and sporty sedan for your Queens commute? You’ve probably come across both the Hyundai Elantra and Honda Civic. But when looking at used vehicles, which is best? Both have a reputation for offering advanced safety features, reliability, and efficiency. With that said, there are differences too, which we’ll highlight in this used Hyundai Elantra vs. used Honda Civic comparison.

Elantra or Civic: Performance

In recent years, both the Hyundai and Honda compact sedans have offered robust four-cylinder engines that get great gas mileage on Brooklyn roads. Take the 2019 Hyundai Elantra and 2019 Honda Civic, for example—which you can in fact buy used. They both run on 2.0L four-cylinder engines. On one hand, the Elantra receives 26 mpg city to the Civic model’s 25 mpg, on the other hand the Civic has 158 hp compared to the Elantra’s 147.

In fact, though the 2018 Civic and Elantra maintain different specs, they keep the same tradeoff. If you want more horsepower, the Civic is your ride, more fuel efficiency, choose the Elantra.

If you’re looking for some “umph” from your compact, try the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport. With a 1.6L turbocharged engine, a 2017 used Elantra outputs 201 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. A 2017 Honda Civic, when equipped with a 1.5L turbocharged engine, only gets 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque.

Elantra or Civic: Interior

In a world that can feel like it’s overrun by SUVs, sedans get a bad rap for being “cramped.” With that said, the Elantra and Civic, leading the pack among compacts, offer plenty of room for drivers and passengers alike.

Again, there’s a tradeoff between the Civic and Elantra. Whether you’re comparing a used 2017 Honda Civic vs. a used 2017 Hyundai Elantra, or used models from 2018 or 2019, you see the same thing when it comes to interior space: The Civic has more cargo volume, the Elantra has more passenger volume.

For recent models, the Honda Civic has about 15 cubic feet of cargo volume and the Hyundai Elantra has about 14 cubic feet of cargo volume. With that said, recent Elantra models have about 110 cubic feet of passenger space, and recent Civics have about 98 cubic feet of passenger volume. Which would you prefer for Bronx errands?
