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.

Price:
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.

Specifications:
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.

Exterior Design:
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.

Interior Design:
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.

Features:
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.

Verdict: 
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.

    Hey, its great that you are planning for a new car and Hyundai Xcent is indeed an amazing car. We must appreciate your choice. Hyundai has recently launched the facelift version of the Xcent which has gone through some cosmetic changes on the exteriors and interiors.

    Talking about the performance specifically, this car is being offered with 1.2 diesel and petrol engine. The petrol trim is capable of delivering a power of 84 bhp with a torque of 114 Nm whereas the diesel engine can deliver a power of 74 bhp with a torque of 190 nm.

    Talking about the mileage figures, the diesel motor delivers a maximum mileage of 25.4 kmpl (Highway) whereas the petrol motor delivers a maximum mileage of 20.14 kmpl (Highway).

    Now, there is no direct comparison between the performance between the performance of Hyundai Xcent and Elite i20 because of the engine difference. The petrol trim is same 1.2 liter engine but in diesel, the i20 comes with a 1.4 liter engine.

  • want to know Ameo petrol performance..???

    Published On :2017-05-20 15:22:11.0 By Arun

    Hey,

    We appreciate your interest towards car and your keenness to know the performance of VW Ameo. 

    Firstly talking about petrol variant, the petrol 1.2-litre is a tried and tested engine, 73bhp is what it produces and there's 110Nm of torque on offer and you might say the power is pretty sufficient for the segment. 

    About diesel, 1.5-litre, 4 cylinder diesel engine, which has been used in the Polo and the Vento, and it now makes its way into the Ameo. But what VW has managed to extract is more power out of this unit, which means that the Ameo is more powerful than the Polo. What Volkswagen has also managed to give the Ameo is a 5-speed manual and a 7-speed DSG. The 5-speed manual is a familiar unit and the gearshifts are smooth, which makes it a good companion, in both city traffic conditions and out on the highway.
