2016 Honda Civic vs 2016 Hyundai Elantra
The Honda Civic has been the best-selling passenger car in the entire country of Canada for the past seventeen years. Through those years, the Honda Civic has gone through revolutionary overhauls three times, and this year will be its fourth. With the new Civic X being the most innovative and daring makeover the vehicle has ever seen, we can only assume that the compact car’s popularity will continue to surge.
So we thought we’d take a look at it in comparison to one of its biggest competitors, by comparing the 2016 Honda Civic vs 2016 Hyundai Elantra. Of course, the specifications of the new vehicle have not yet been announced, so we’re dealing in hypotheticals, but we still think this table shows its superiority.
Advantages of the 2016 Honda Civic Sedan
As we stated, all the specifications for the 2016 Honda Civic Sedan haven’t yet been released. So instead we took a look at the specs for the previous year’s model and took into account the promises the manufacturer has made, and came up with the table above. So let’s first look at power, where the Elantra would have a 2-horsepower advantage over the old engine. With the new engine that will be installed, we can only assume that the Civic will have superior power ratings.
The Civic already had a slight advantage over the new Hyundai Elantra last year, but assuming the 2016 model’s curb weight and highway fuel efficiency will improve like Honda has stated, the advantage will only improve. The one area that the Hyundai had a sizable leg up was in passenger volume, and while we assume that number will increase for 2016 as well, we can’t be sure by how much.
