2017 Hyundai Elantra
Whether it’s for personal commuting, a first car for a teen driver, or just an efficient and affordable everyday family car, the compact sedan remains a strong choice for drivers throughout Manchester and Lakewood. The 2017 Honda Civic Sedan and 2017 Hyundai Elantra are both sensible choices this year, but the Civic has the Elantra beat in a variety of ways. Explore both models here, and then test drive the Civic at Honda of Toms River.
Under the hood of the base trim in the Honda Civic lineup is a 2.0L inline-four engine that produces a total of 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque. Compare that to the base trim in the Hyundai Elantra lineup, which also gets a 2.0L four-cylinder engine but has a noticeably lower output of only 147 hp and 132 lb-ft of torque.
Max Fuel Economy
The 2017 Honda Civic is also offered with a turbocharged 1.5L inline-four engine, which not only boosts output but also increases fuel economy up to a very impressive EPA-estimated 42 mpg highway and 32 mpg city*. There’s an Eco version of the Hyundai Elantra available that comes with a turbocharged 1.4L four-cylinder engine, but it comes in below the Civic’s turbocharged engine both in performance and fuel economy, getting only 40 mpg highway and 32 mpg city, according to the EPA.
