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.

I hv shorlisted Honda Amaze S-CVT-iVTECH Petrol and Maruti Swift Dzire VXI AT Petrol.I am aged 62 yrs and need to keep the car for next 15 yrs.Monthly drive will be about 1000 km in Delhi city.Pl advise from engine performance,comfortable drive,noiseless engine point which is better ?
Hello Rakesh, the cars that you have selected are great. Both of them are great to drive and offer almost equal amount of power and torque. However, since you are going for a petrol variant, we would suggest you to go for Amaze S CVT iVTEC as it has CVT on offer which is better than the AT offered in Dzire. Though Dzire would be easy to maintain. The engine performance, NVH levels and everything is better with Amaze. Click here to check out the comparison.
I wanted to buy the maruti suzuki vitara brezza car but i confused only in the performance and engine response of this car, some reviews showing the engine has little bit of noise while driving it and the pick up of this car is not good as expected. So please suggest me the engine and driving performance of this car in city and highway.
Hey, it is great that you wish to buy a new car and the car that you have selected in indeed very nice. However, the power that is generates is less, it is lesser than Ford Ecosport which offers better competition. Though the amount of features that you get with Brezza is great but you are concerned about driving pleasure, you should choose Ecosport since it has got better power and looks great too. If you drive mostly in cities, you should choose Brezza. Click here to check out the comparison.
