2020 Hyundai Elantra Vs. 2020 Toyota Corolla

White 2020 Hyundai Elantra and white 2020 Toyota Corolla, separated by a diagonal line and a "VS" logo.

With a comfortable ride and excellent fuel economy, the forward-thinking 2020 Hyundai Elantra is packed full of exciting features and thoughtful details. This continues the model’s tradition as a young challenger to the compact car elite: the Elantra first came onto the market in 2011 and shook things up in a way that’s largely credited with creating the modern, value-packed sedan class.

Though it’s now nearly nine years later, the Hyundai Elantra continues to innovate and excel. It has to, if it wants to stay afloat in a segment that’s near overflowing with high-quality offerings. One of these top offerings is the 2020 Toyota Corolla. The model was redesigned in hatchback form for 2019, and that redesign now finds its way to the sedan model for 2020. How does the 2020 Hyundai Elantra compare?

New Compact Car in Salisbury, MD

Despite the redesign of the 2020 Toyota Corolla, the 2020 Elantra still wins in the value game thanks to its lower price tag and packed slew of features. The 2020 Hyundai Elantra is both more spacious and less expensive than the 2020 Corolla; unfortunately for Toyota, these are two of the factors that matter most to compact car buyers.

The 2020 Hyundai Elantra feels more trustworthy out on the road than the 2020 Corolla. Though both have a lot of driver-assistance tech, the adaptive cruise control feature on the 2020 Toyota Corolla is a bit sluggish to adapt to changing traffic conditions, and sometimes almost feels like it’s fighting against the driver for control of the car. The 2020 Hyundai Elantra does not have this issue, and it benefits from other additional safety features such as rear parking sensors and the Hyundai BlueLink telematics system.

2020 Hyundai Elantra Design

The grille of the 2020 Hyundai Elantra is wide, with headlights cutting into it. We particularly like that the rear end has no trunk latch. To open the back, the user must press the top portion of the Hyundai badge to activate the hidden trunk release button.

Inside, the 2020 Hyundai Elantra feels straightforward and familiar. Everything is right where we expect it to be. Altogether, we appreciate the tasteful yet constantly improving design that Hyundai brings to its beloved Elantra each year.
