If you're on the hunt for a commuter sedan that caters to every adventure that awaits, narrowing down your options to the 2021 Hyundai Elantra and 2021 Sonata certainly weeds out subpar candidates. You still might be wondering which of these two suit your needs, so let the team at Hyundai City be of assistance by comparing them. After this overview, check out both at our convenient showroom. 
You can be sure that if it's from Hyundai, you won't be left disappointed. The 2021 Elantra is likely one of the few compact sedans that stands proudly with the 2021 Sonata, both of which demonstrate quality performance capabilities. Those who require peak efficiency will likely learn towards the Elantra, as it dispels a 33/43/37 MPG city/hwy/combined1 fuel economy with the standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. You'll appreciate this rating, because this system also flaunts 147 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque. If you don't mind dialing back on these numbers for heightened verve, choose the Sonata. This midsize sedan is ready to leave your fellow motorists in the dust with its optional 2.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder powertrain to unleash 290 horsepower and 311 lb.-ft. of torque while maintaining 23/33/27 MPG city/hwy/combined1 fuel rate.
Situating yourself into the cabins of the 2021 Hyundai Elantra and Sonata won't be difficult. Whether it's a quick trip around the block or down Salem Road, you'll be perfectly satisfied that both front rows offer optional heating to melt away the aches and pains of the day. To cool off during the sweltering summer months, be sure to choose the 2021 Hyundai Sonata to gain access to available ventilation for the driver's and copilot's seat. Android Auto™2 and Apple CarPlay®2 are standard within these sedans, so you can quickly tap into your contacts and playlists while on the go. If you prefer extra convenience, choose the Elantra as it has a wireless option for these integrations. And if you could use extra room for your weekend getaway luggage or work necessities, pick the Sonata as it has 16.0 cubic ft. of cargo volume3 while the Elantra has 14.2 cubic ft. of trunk area3.
Of course, your protection is of the utmost importance, which is why both the Hyundai Sonata and Elantra are stellar candidates for your next set of wheels. Sometimes, changing lanes can be stressful, especially when the freeway is riddled with other drivers. The Elantra comes equipped with Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist4 to let you know when another motorist is too close for you to make the maneuver. This model also comes standard with Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist5, which offers the same courtesy but when you are in reverse. If you are learning towards the Sonata, you're in luck, because select trims come with both of these driver-assist technologies! Then, for added aid when on straightaways, you'll appreciate that the Sonata comes standard with Smart Cruise Control with Stop and Go6 while the Elantra has this on available editions.

3. Sizes may vary.
4. Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA) assists the driver by warning of other cars in the blind spot region. It senses the rear side territory of the vehicle when it is traveling over 20 mph. There are limitations to the function, range, detection and clarity of the system. It will not detect all vehicles or objects in the blind spot. Its operation depends on the size, distance, angle and relative speed difference between your car and other cars. BCA may not operate if sensors are obscured in any way. Do not rely exclusively on BCA. BCA is a supplemental system and the driver must still be attentive and exercise caution when driving. It is important to always signal, look over your shoulder and through your mirrors before changing lanes. It is the driver's responsibility to be aware of the surroundings and ensure it is clear before changing lanes or directions. See Owner's Manual for further details and limitations.
5. Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA) can alert the driver of a potential hazard by providing an audible warning and applying light braking. RCCA is active when the vehicle is in reverse and operating at low speeds. Never rely exclusively on RCCA. RCCA cannot prevent all collisions and may not provide alerts or braking in all conditions. Always look over your shoulder and use your mirrors to confirm rear clearance. There are limitations to the function, detection, range and clarity of the system. See Owner's Manual for further details and limitations.
6. Smart Cruise Control disengages at speeds below 6 mph. Smart Cruise Control (SCC) is not a collision avoidance or warning device. SCC is for highway use only and should not be used in poor weather, heavy or varying traffic, or on winding or slippery roads. Driver remains responsible to slow or stop the vehicle to avoid a collision. See Owner's Manual for further details and limitations.
