The 2019 Hyundai Elantra also comes as either a sedan or a hatchback, but also comes with a wider variety of engines in varying states of tune. That means you can prioritize fuel efficiency or power, or choose a comfortable middle ground. Like the Chevy Cruze, the Hyundai Elantra earns high marks for safety (in this case, an IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus). However, unlike the Chevy model, more of the Hyundai model’s active safety features are available as standard equipment.
Both vehicles come with good infotainment systems, and each comes with both Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ standard. You’ll find much more by way of standard equipment in the Hyundai Elantra, but it’s easy to equip either car quite well with the right combination of trim level and available options.
So which is better? You may be looking at both of these cars’ figures and specifications and coming to what feels like a clear conclusion, or you could still be stumped. Either way, our suggestion is to make way to Keyes Chevrolet and Keyes Hyundai of Van Nuys (they’re just minutes apart, after all), get answers to any questions you have, take a test drive of each, and take advantage of our new vehicle specials.
