Black 2019 Honda Civic and 2019 Hyundai Elantra side by side

When starting a car buying search, everywhere you look there is a sedan. While these models are all different, not too many stand out like the popular Honda Civic or Hyundai Elantra. In order to help drivers choose the right fit for them, we wanted to take a look at the base models of each, the LX 6-Speed Manual for the Civic and SE for the Elantra, and find out the differences between the 2019 Honda Civic vs the 2019 Hyundai Elantra.

Even when taking a look at the base models, the new Civic shines in terms of power and performance. This is thanks to the Honda sedan’s 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, which is able to generate 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque. Along with its strong performance, the new Civic is also more spacious than your typical sedan, offering 98 cu.ft of room for up to five passengers, along with a maximum of 15.1 cu.ft of space for luggage, belongings or anything you would need to pack up.

As the Civic has made a name for itself as a sedan, drivers could always look forward to a specific driving style and feel that they grew to love. However, in 2019, Honda allows drivers to have that same Civic soul with many different kinds of alternative models such as the Civic Hatchback, Civic Si and Civic Type R. The hatchback, of course, allows for even more space for gear and luggage, while the Civic Si and Type R models see a big increase in performance, making them some of the most exciting vehicles in the lineup.
