Hey Honda fans, Honda Laura here! I am thrilled to bring you a comparison review between the 2015 Honda Civic and the 2016 Hyundai Elantra. These two vehicles are similar in size, cost and performance, which makes them perfect for a comparison! As always, thank you to Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk for allowing us to take out the 2015 Honda Civic. A special thank you goes to Herb Chambers Hyundai of Westborough for allowing us to take out the 2016 Hyundai Elantra. Below you will see just some of the similarities and differences in the features each car offers. And don’t forget to watch my YouTube video for all the highlights.

Both cars drove exceptionally well and I was very comfortable in both. However, I found the Civic more aesthetically pleasing on the inside. While the layout was easy to navigate inside the Elantra, I found it to be lacking some buttons here and there. The difference in MSRP is only a mere $300, but the most valuable part of the Honda Civic is the longevity and dependability that comes with the Honda name. Which one would you choose? Why?
