Elantra vs. Sonata: Comparing Two Popular Sedans from Hyundai

Hyundai has a pair of new sedan models that have become quite popular. Both the new Elantra and the new Sonata offer drivers a compelling combination of style, comfort, and efficiency. So, what are the major differences between the two?

2020 Elantra

The Elantra is Hyundai's compact sedan. It's smaller in size than the Sonata and thus has a lower starting price. The payoff for choosing the smaller model is better fuel efficiency -- the EPA rates the new Elantra for up to 40 mpg highway. Even with the slightly smaller cabin, you'll have a range of popular new features to choose from. Overall, the 2020 Elantra is a convenient compact sedan with great value and an abundance of available features.

2019 Sonata

The Sonata is recommended for those who want more interior space. This midsize sedan is great for quiet, composed comfort. Options like heated and ventilated seats give it an edge over the competition. It offers plenty of power as well with its standard 2.4-liter engine producing 185 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque. An optional turbocharged engine bumps output to 240 horsepower. While efficiency is slightly down from the Elantra, the Sonata still gets great mileage with an estimated 29 mpg combined. If you're looking for a comfortable midsize sedan that's rich in features, then the Sonata is a great pick.
