When considering compact sedans, most drivers want good fuel economy, premium safety and superior comfort and convenience in their ride. While there is a plethora of models to choose from, three brands rise to the top – the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, and Hyundai Elantra.
All three models come with a four-cylinder engine for the base models. However, you get more power with the 2021 Honda Civic with 158 horsepower for the 2.0L engine. The Elantra comes in second with 147 horsepower over the 139 horsepower with the Toyota Corolla. All three models include a two-speed CVT for smooth handling. Making the handling even easier is a tighter turning radius for the Honda than the other models.
Compact sedans are designed to be safe out on the road and wielding their way through city streets. All three models include cruise control on the base model, but the 2021 Honda Civic and the Toyota Corolla feature adaptive cruise control as standard across the line. All three models come with traction control, airbags and lane departure warning as standard on all trims. Another bonus with the Civic is available fog lights across the board. While each sedan allows you to be prepared for all kinds of situations, the Civic goes the extra mile with rain-sensing windshield wipers as standard.
Give your passengers plenty of room to stretch out even in a compact sedan with these models. While all three offer ample space inside, the 2021 Honda Civic edges out the competition with slightly more passenger volume. This is translated into more front legroom and hip room. Rear passengers will enjoy their ride as well with more rear legroom. Bring along more stuff with extra cargo volume for the Honda. Power adjustable front seats ensure the ideal position even on long rides with the Hyundai offering six-way adjustments and the other two providing eight-way. Leather seating is standard on the top trims of the Hyundai and Honda.
Advanced technology is evident on compact sedans to appeal to drivers. While all three of these sedans come with modern features. Even on the base trim, the 2021 Honda Civic includes the option for a remote starter. On the higher trims, a programmable garage door opener is an option, but the Civic makes it standard. Multimedia systems enhance the driving experience with a navigation system available on the Hyundai at the top trim while it comes standard for the Honda. Bluetooth is also standard for all three sedans while the Honda Civic doubles your entertainment pleasure with 12 performance speakers over six for the Toyota and Hyundai. This system includes a standard amplifier for even better sound.
If you’re in the market for a compact sedan to get you where you need to go, the 2021 Honda Civic is worth a second look. You can get a close-up view of this model at Premier Honda and find out how to make it your new ride.View Inventory
