Hi I'm confused between getting an Elantra or Toyota Corolla Altis,
Hyundai Elantra vs Toyota Corolla Altis
Hyundai has decided to shake things up a little with the launch of the new generation Elantra. Toyota's Corolla Altis continues to be its biggest rival.
Thanks to aggressive pricing, the Elantra undercuts the Corolla Altis is terms of price. Most of the diesel variants of the Elantra are more expensive than those of the Corolla. However, it should be noted that Elantra's diesel engine is bigger and more powerful.
The new Hyundai Elantra comes with a 2.0-litre petrol and a 1.6-litre diesel engine. Both engines are more powerful and produce more torque than the ones that power the Toyota Corolla. Also, Hyundai offers the diesel Elantra with an optional automatic transmission, something the Corolla misses out on. Toyota Corolla Altis’1.4 L diesel is a bit too small for a car in this segment. While it does give the car a price advantage, it affects performance severely.
In comparison, the Altis Petrol fares much better than its diesel counterpart. However, the Elantra is still more powerful and produces more torque. Both cars can be had with either a 6-speed manual or an automatic transmission.
Most modern Hyundai's these days get very attractive exteriors and the new Elantra is no exception. Although, the Altis has now become a familiar face, it still looks very modern and quite appealing. It is worth mentioning that Toyota will launch a facelift of the Corolla Altis next year.
The next generation Elantra features a sportier look on the inside. Much like the exteriors, the interiors of the new car look more mature and less in your face than before. The Corolla Altis gets very stylish yet a highly functional cabin that is made up of high-quality materials. Its asymmetric layout looks very modern and is likely to age very well. Corolla Altis gets a dual tone black -beige colour theme.
While the base models skimp out on a lot of features, the top-end trims come packed with equipment. Toyota offers the Corolla Altis with only 2 airbags. Hyundai offers 6 airbags at least in the top-spec trims. Elantra also gets ventilated seats, which the Corolla doesn’t. Therefore, the Elantra is more feature rich than the Corolla Altis.
The biggest advantage the Toyota Corolla Altis had over the Hyundai Elantra was its price. With the launch of the new model, that advantage has all but disappeared. Also, in terms of engines, features, etc. the Elantra seems to be better than the Corolla Altis.

It is hard to pick one out of the cars that you have selected. Both cars are quite nice to drive and compete neck to neck with each other. i20 has got some extra comfort features like glove box cooling, Air Quality Control and rear AC vents in Hyundai i20 Asta 1.2 . On the other front Baleno has ABS, EBD and dual airbags which are standard across all the variants. Baleno is lighter as compared to i20 which helps it to attain higher speed in less amount of time. i20 on the other hand is heavy and is quite confident to drive over turns. Our pick here would be Baleno as it is fresh and also is easy to maintain. On top of that, it offers you better fuel economy. Click here to check out the comparison.
Both cars are great, Duster is compact, less powerful and short in height hence is easier to maneuver in traffic. Due to the less power that it generates, it is also more fuel efficient. On the other front, Safari is massive, it has a bigger engine, it is bigger is dimensions and hence, is less fuel efficient. In order to choose one out of these, you need to look at the conditions you would drive your car in. If you are going to drive mostly in cities, go for Duster as it is more "Car" like and if that is not the case, go for Safari. Safari would not be a good choice if you drive mostly in traffic as it hefty and massive and therefore, it isn't easy to maneuver it. When we drove them, we got about 13 KMPL by Duster and 10.4 KMPL by Safari. Click here to take a quick look at the features on offer.
I am looking forward to buy a Renault duster Petrol RxL. I couldn't find any useful reviews for the petrol version , the diesel has many. Going for the petrol one due to the post 10 year de-registration of diesel vehicles in Delhi. Any insights regarding the petrol version will be helpful.
Both of them belong to different segments. You will be able to purchase the base variant of Brezza in the price of the top end KUV 1OO. If features are something that you look forward to, you should go for KUV 1OO and if rigidity and better space is something that you are looking for, you should choose Brezza.
