The 2013 Honda Civic vs. the 2013 Hyundai Elantra

2013 Honda Civic Sedan 900Dependability, durability, and value have made the Honda Civic a popular choice with Middletown and Newburgh drivers for quite some time. The 2013 Honda Civic builds on that reputation by adding some of its class’s best fuel economy, as well an excellent list of the standard features, including a rearview camera and Bluetooth handsfree calling.

The 2013 Civic is available to test drive, lease, and purchase at Middletown Honda, but we realize you may be considering a few similar models. While there are many similarities, the similarly-priced 2013 Hyundai Elantra misses some of the key features that Civic drivers are enjoying. Here’s how the two models match-up.

Standard Features

Standard equipped with Honda’s own i-MID display system, all 2013 Honda Civic models come with:

  • Bluetooth connectivity for handsfree calling
  • Music streaming through services like Pandora
  • Steering wheel mounted controls for audio / phone / i-MID
  • A rearview camera
  • Auxiliary and USB input cables

Upgrades to the system like satellite radio and navigation are also available. While the Hyundai Elantra has a similar starting price, features like Bluetooth connectivity and steering wheel-mounted audio controls are only optional. A rearview camera is also completely unavailable on the base, GLS level. It only becomes available at the higher, more expensive Limited trim level.

Other features that are standard on the Civic that are not readily available on the Elantra include dual-zone automatic climate control, an illuminated vanity mirror, and floor mats. Besides that, both vehicles have similar fuel-efficiency estimates and power outputs, so the key areas of comparison really are in the standard and available features
