Comparing the 2022 Hyundai Elantra with the 2022 Toyota Corolla

While we know that the 2022 Hyundai Elantra is a great compact sedan for Traverse City drivers, we also acknowledge that it faces some stiff competition from the latest Toyota Corolla. If you're considering a Toyota Corolla for your next car, take a look at what the new Hyundai Elantra has to offer and see if it might be a better fit for your Michigan lifestyle.


Advanced safety features are becoming the standard across the automotive world, and even compacts like the Hyundai Elantra are now coming with features like automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and forward collision alert. Even better, the Elantra comes with front and rear parking sensors, something that the Toyota Corolla can't say. Same with the Elantra's rear cross traffic alert which is an optional extra even on higher trims of the Toyota model.

Warranty Coverage

Peace of mind shouldn't come with a price tag, and thanks to the 10-year, 100,000-mile warranty on the new Hyundai Elantra, you can rest assured that you'll be covered should anything prematurely break down on your new car. The Toyota Corolla only comes with five years and 60,000 miles of coverage, so the Elantra will give you that peace of mind for nearly twice as long. That's important when you're talking about an investment as large as a new car, and it means you can drive with confidence in your new Hyundai.

Performance and Efficiency

It's not often you find a vehicle that is both faster and more efficient, but the turbocharged engine in the Hyundai Elantra allows for just that. At 147 horsepower, it clocks in eight above the Toyota Corolla, and in the real world that power difference is noticeable. You'll go from zero to 60 mph in just under eight seconds with the Elantra, while the Corolla requires over 10 seconds to reach highway speeds. And in the all-important passing scenario, the Elantra accelerates from 45 mph to 60 in just 4.4 seconds, while the Corolla takes six ticks on the clock to achieve the same pace.

The Elantra is more fuel efficient than the Corolla as well. At up to 33 mpg city and 43 mpg on the interstate, the new Hyundai Elantra offers four additional city MPG and seven extra highway miles over the Toyota Corolla where efficiency is concerned.

Interior Space

Getting comfortable in the cabin is the key to enjoying your time on the road, and with the Hyundai Elantra you'll have a truly cavernous space to work with. You'll have over two inches of additional headroom in the Elantra when compared to the Corolla, and those in the rear seats will get over three inches of extra legroom to get comfortable versus the Toyota model. Overall, the Toyota Corolla gives you 88.6 cubic feet of total passenger space, while the Hyundai Elantra delivers 99.4, putting it in another class entirely.

Cargo Space

While on extra cubic foot doesn't seem like much, the extra backpack or grocery bag that can fit into the Hyundai Elantra can make a world of difference when you're packing for a road trip or handling that hectic holiday shopping season.
