In this fast-paced, unpredictable life where we are bombarded with uncertainty and problems every other minute, our heart yearns for comfort and safety. Consequently, we seek solace in our homes and transportation mediums.
Well, studies have shown that sedans are the epitome of comfort and safety. With their spacious interior, plush seating, rear AC vents, built-in armrests and upgraded safety features, one can breeze through the roads and have a smooth driving experience.
Now, when it comes to sedans, the market is brimming with bright, shiny ones. Many companies have joined in on the competition to invent the best sedan.
However, according to our research, Hyundai Elantra 2021 and Honda Civic 2021 seem to be trending the most among car enthusiasts. In this article, we will provide an in-depth analysis and comparison of both the beauties in order to help you choose the best one.
Interior Layout and Features:
Honda Civic 2021 sports a sophisticated interior. With an enlarged cargo space, it is ideal for families or individuals who like to carry all of their possessions wherever they go. Moreover, the material of the seats is durable and strong which, combined with spacious seating, can withstand any and every kind of passenger.
On the other hand, Hyundai Elantra 2021’s interior focuses on providing more leg-room for the back-seaters. This is perfect for people with big families who like to travel in comfort and style. Nevertheless, Elantra falls short here because their seats’ base is less durable and thin.
Civic features many fantastic functions ranging from automatic climate control and back-side heater ducts to push-button start and a smart keyless system. In variants like EX or above, one can also enjoy the perks of heated front seats. They allow the driver to fully indulge in a hassle-free driving experience which requires minimum efforts and provides maximum comfort.
Elantra, similarly, has a dual-zone automatic climate control, a smart keyless system and a push-button start along with back-side heater ducts and tilt/telescoping steering wheel.
Lastly, unlike Elantra – which includes a 7 inch big infotainment screen – Civic lacks this feature. However, it can be installed for a few extra bucks.
