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? Comment below and tell me!
