2017 Honda Civic vs 2017 Hyundai Elantra

In this battle of the sedans, we’ll pit the Civic against the Elantra, two perfectly capable cars that are fan favorites and perform well on the road. What are the most important elements for a sedan? Fuel efficiency, power, safety features, and price. Let’s have a look.

2017 Honda Civic


The 2017 Honda Civic has two powertrain options: a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that can produce 158 horsepower when paired with a 6-speed manual transmission and a 1.5-liter inline-4 turbo that produces 174 horsepower. The manual gearbox on the first engine is only available on the base model LX. That has a fuel economy of 35/41/35 miles per gallon city/highway/combined.

As for safety features, Honda packed the Civic with the Honda Sensing that earned it awards from National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS).

The 2017 Honda Civic has a starting price of $18,640, $21,000, and $26,500 for the base, EX, and Touring trims, respectively.

2017 Hyundai Elantra


The Hyundai Elantra also has two powertrain options. The base trim comes with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 147 horsepower. This is paired with a manual gearbox for the base model while the rest of the models get a CVT.

The Elantra got an EPA rating of 29/28/33 miles per gallon in the city, on the highway and combined, respectively, for this. It also boasts of another engine: a 1.4-liter inline-4 that churns out 128 horsepower. It is paired with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission.

Like the Civic, it also earned nods from the IIHS and the NHTSA, though its scores fell below those of the 2017 Honda Civic.

The starting price for the Hyundai Elantra is much lower than the Civic’s. You can get the base model for $17,150, which is a tad lower than the base model being offered by the Civic.

What’s Your Pick?


Who’s the winner? Clearly, the Civic takes the trophy on this battle, especially when it comes to safety features and fuel economy.

Top 3 Changes In The New 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia


There were definitely plenty of delays, but the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia has finally arrived and it’s ready to be delivered to your doorsteps. But before you let go of that hard-earned cash, take a look at how this luxury vehicle fares when pitted against its direct competitors—the BMW 3-Series, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and the Jaguar XE.

Check out the top 3 updates of the vehicle based on a source:

1. Dramatic Lines

The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia has the “most pleasing lines” out of the lineup. It has dynamic creases on the hood that wraps around the frames to the front grille, whose three-vent design certainly became a standout. Why is that? The grilles on the Merc, BMW, and Jaguar have very definite separation between the upper and the lower grille.

In the rear, the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia is subtle with its changes, though the C-shaped taillights and the large tailpipe units certainly added some visual stylistics.

2. Round And Compact

Round and compact, that’s how one will describe the overall look of the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia. It is almost the same length as the 3-Series and slightly shorter than the C-Class and XE. You’ll notice that compared to the other three luxury sedans, the Giulia has a short overhang. If you opted for it, the Giulia can be had with five-hole wheels and hood vents.

3. Simple Cabin With Extra Features

Inside, there’s nothing much going on with the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia, except that it sports a few more buttons and knobs than the BMW and the Jaguar. What’s good about the cabin is that it was kept clean and simple, and there was nothing over-the-top about it. That draws attention to the sculpted lines of the dashboard that is home to the infotainment system and various other knobs and what-not.

There’s a frameless infotainment screen that allows you to navigate fashionably, we might say. The seats are all wrapped in leather, which is a standard on all Giulia models.
