2020 Toyota Corolla vs 2020 Hyundai Elantra near Prince William, VA

My friends, the 2020 sedans are finally here! With this momentous unveiling comes more competition, and the 2020 Corolla and the 2020 Elantra are ready to do battle! The 2020 Corolla comes with a full redesign that makes it more competitive among its rivals, while the 2020 Hyundai Elantra remains committed to variety and value with a rich set of features. In this article, we are pitting these two remarkable sedans against one another, read on to see which one comes out on top. 

2020 Toyota Corolla Power & Handling

Two engines are available for the 2020 Corolla. The L, LE, and XLE come with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder with 139 horsepower and 126 lb-ft of torque paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission powered to its front wheels. The higher-level SE and XLE get you a 2.0-liter engine with 169 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque which pairs with a specialized CVT automatic and paddle shifters. The SE trim gives you the option of a six-speed automatic transmission.

2020 Hyundai Elantra Power & Handling

A few engine options are available for the 2020 Elantra. Available for the Elantra SE, SEL, Value Edition, and Limited is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque paired with an intelligent variable transmission. The Eco gets you a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder with a stop/start function and a seven-speed automatic transmission. Sport and GT N Line models get a 1.6-liter four-cylinder with the same transmission.

2020 Toyota Corolla Features & Design

All 2020 Corollas come with the Toyota Safety 2.0 that comes with a ton of assists. Provided is a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, automatic high beams, radar cruise control, lane-departure alert, road-sign assist, and lane tracking assist. The XLE and XSE also provide you with blind-spot monitoring. The SE and the XSE feature large 18-inch wheels, contoured sport seats, and a rear decklid spoiler. All models of the 2020 Corolla come with power windows and locks, standard six-speaker audio with Apple CarPlay, and two USB ports. Automatic climate control is available on all models but the base L. This year's Corolla also comes with a ton of options including a Premium JBL sound system, connected navigation, and smart key with push-button start.

2020 Hyundai Elantra Features & Design

Coming standard for the base-level Elantra SE is dual-zone climate control, forward-collision mitigation, automatic emergency braking, and lane-keeping assist. Other features for the SE include a 5-inch infotainment display, selectable driving modes and 15-inch wheels. Moving up to the SEL gets you a 7-inch touch screen, 16-inch alloy wheels, smartphone integration, and blind-spot monitoring. Higher-level Elantras get you heated front seats, two USB ports, automatic high beams, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and an upgraded audio system. What's important is what's missing. Unlike the 2020 Corolla, there is no Apple CarPlay or several safety features that come standard on even the lowest trims of the Corolla.


Both are great vehicles, but in the end, we are going to go with the 2020 Corolla. The Corollas two engines are more powerful than the Elantras three, and the Corolla has several features that the Elantra doesn't. Want to learn more about the 2020 Corolla?
