Looking for an affordable, dependable economy sedan that you can drive to and from work for your daily commute in Brownsville, Texas? The 2021 Honda Civic is a popular choice, but we at Tipton Hyundai think that the 2021 Hyundai Elantra might actually be a better option for you. This reliable Hyundai car has some notable strengths over the Honda Civic.
If you’re driving your commuter car on a daily basis to and from the office, you’ll want to conserve as much gas as possible. The 2021 Elantra is a more efficient vehicle than the 2021 Civic is.
While the Civic’s base four-cylinder engine averages 30 mpg in city driving and 38 mpg on the highway, the Elantra’s base four-cylinder engine averages 33 mpg in city driving and 43 mpg on the highway.* Even the Civic’s most efficient engine — the four-cylinder turbocharged unit — can’t match those efficiency rates.
Another way to save money with the 2021 Hyundai Elantra is with its lower purchase price. The base-level Elantra costs almost $2,000 less than the cheapest 2021 Civic, and those savings can be seen throughout the Elantra lineup.**
Even the high-performance Elantra N Line and the top-of-the-line Elantra Limited are cheaper than the Civic’s maxed-out Touring trim, which costs $3,000 more than the most expensive Elantra you can buy.**
Just because the Elantra is more affordable doesn’t mean you don’t get the best technology or design. The standard touch screen in the Civic is five inches, while the smallest screen in the Elantra is a full eight inches with high-resolution display. The biggest screen in the Civic is only seven inches — nowhere near the massive 10.25-inch screen in the Elantra Limited.
A modern, stylish sedan, the 2021 Elantra is a great drive for thrifty yet fashionable drivers in Brownsville, Texas. Find it in stock now at Tipton Hyundai.
