2017 Hyundai Elantra vs 2017 Chevrolet Cruze

In the world of compact sedans, there are many that all promise you the pinnacle of longevity, efficiency and innovation from the moment you step inside. However, few are able to deliver on these promises and even less are able to do so consistently. Today, we have two compacts that add plenty of substance to their style: the 2017 Hyundai Elantra and 2017 Chevrolet Cruze. Both are routinely praised throughout the industry for their reliable nature and exquisite makeups, but how well do they match up against each other?

Since they both bring so much to the table for you as a driver, any comparison will come down to a matter of preference as the choice belongs with you. So, let’s jump right in and see what these two compact kings bring to the table!

2017 Hyundai Elantra Golden CO

Everyone from casual daily drivers to the most hardcore of automotive enthusiasts can appreciate what both the 2017 Hyundai Elantra in Golden CO and 2017 Chevrolet Cruze bring to the table. If technological innovation is more your style, the Cruze forms a compelling argument with its available 4G LTE WiFi hotspot and advanced infotainment systems. However, if your flavor is built more on pure, unbridled passion and enthusiasm, the 2017 Elantra warrants a second glance. It produces much greater horsepower than the Cruze, and thanks to heated seating featured in both rows and a hands-free Smart Trunk, your experience with the Elantra adds functional and comfortable elements to its undeniable performance. Also, thanks to a wealth of driver assistance features the Elantra can lay claim to being one of the safest cars on the road. Some of these available features include:

  • Blind Spot Detection
  • Rearview camera with Dynamic Guidelines
  • Vehicle Stability Management
  • Traction Control System
  • Electronic Brake-force Distribution
  • Brake Assist
  • Many more!
