The Elantra is a prized midsize sedan from Hyundai, while Toyota’s Corolla is a compact car meant to be a little sportier and fun. The vehicle you choose will mostly depend on your needs for interior and cargo space and drivability, so let’s compare the 2019 versions of both. Despite being in the class of compact sedans, the 2019 Corolla doesn’t fall too short against the 2019 Elantra when it comes to interior space. In fact, it has about the same amount of front legroom and slightly more rear legroom than the Elantra, but its cargo area isn’t as roomy. The Elantra may not pull ahead much in size, but it does come with ample safety features for most of its trims, like a blind spot monitoring system, hands-free navigation, and a cross-path warning system, all of which aren’t available for the Corolla. The Elantra’s 7-speed Dual Clutch transmission and 4-cylinder engine offer higher fuel economy than the Corolla, with an estimated rating of 32 mpg city and 40 mpg highway, compared to the 4-cylinder engine and 7-speed CVT with a rating of 28 mpg city and 35 mpg highway for the Corolla.
