Sedans like the 2020 Toyota Corolla and the 2020 Hyundai Elantra set the standard for functional and efficient Chandler drives, but when squaring off the Toyota Corolla vs. the Hyundai Elantra, who wins? We think the 2020 Toyota Corolla is the car to choose thanks to Toyota’s legendary reliability and emphasis on great functional features. Stay tuned for our Toyota vs. Hyundai comparison and check out all the great alternative fuel Toyota models.

Hyundai Elantra or Toyota Corolla: What Comes Standard?

Right off the bat, you’ll notice at first glance that the Hyundai Elantra starts ever so slightly lower at $19,150 MSRP than the Toyota Corolla at $19,600 MSRP*. However, that $450 difference is massive when you compare what you get on the base models of these two cars. The Corolla is jam packed with a suite of great standard features that’ll make your Gilbert trips to the bank or the grocery store feel like a breeze. Have a look:

  • Apple CarPlay & Alexa compatibility
  • 6 speaker sound system
  • 7-inch touchscreen
  • Siri® voice recognition
  • Speech-to-text messaging
  • Bluetooth® phone and audio connectivity

Not only that, for the 2020 model year, you’ve got Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0) standard on every trim package, giving you an advanced and informed way of keeping yourself in control of your Mesa drives. Here’s just a short list of what you’re getting:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Road Sign Assistance

While the Hyundai Elantra does come with the Hyundai SmartSense safety system that contains some of the features you get standard on the Toyota Corolla, the Elantra requires you upgrade to a more expensive configuration to get the same features. This further shows the value of Toyota’s legendary sedan.

Hyundai Elantra or Toyota Corolla: Performance

The Corolla and Elantra offer a similar level of performance, with virtually identical engine displacements, fuel economies, and engine stats. Take a look:
