Advantages of the 2019 Hyundai Elantra

These two models are extremely close when it comes to their fuel economy. The Elantra has 1 more mile to the gallon in the city than the Civic. However, you can still potentially find yourself driving further on a tank of gas in the Elantra than in the Civic. This is because it has a larger fuel tank. The 1.6-gallon advantage can be a big help when you are travelling longer distances.

You’ll also have a longer basic warranty for the Elantra than in the Civic. The Elantra has 5 year or 60,000 miles. So, your Elantra will be under warranty longer than the Civic will.

One advantage that the Civic does have over the Elantra is a bit more cargo space. It has half a cubic foot more of cargo space than the Elantra does. So if you are primarily looking for a spacious sedan and every bit of cargo space matters, then you may actually want to go with the Civic over the Elantra.
