But of course, there are competitors out there, so Wilson Hyundai is taking the time out to compare them. Today, we examine how the 2019 Hyundai Elantra stacks up against the 2019 Nissan Sentra.

Hyundai Elantra vs. Nissan Sentra: Performance

Both the 2019 Hyundai Elantra and 2019 Nissan Sentra offer an array of engine options–and at each level, the Hyundai gives you more power. The Elantra’s base 2.0-liter engine puts out 147 horsepower compared to 124 on the Sentra’s 1.8-liter, while the turbocharged 1.6-liter on the Elantra Sport pumps out 201 compared to the Sentra SR Turbo’s 188. Additionally, the standard base-level transmission on the Sentra, and all of its automatic options are Continuously Variable Transmissions. The 2019 Elantra offers more convenience and driving fun, with 6- or 7-speed automatic transmissions standard on every model.

Hyundai Elantra vs. Nissan Sentra: Safety

The 2019 Nissan Sentra was recognized by the IIHS as a Top Safety Pick. But the 2019 Hyundai Elantra received even higher honors, as a Top Safety Pick +. Both vehicles offer high-tech safety tools like blind spot protection, but the Elantra goes even further, with available Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keep Assist–not available on any Nissan Sentra model.

Hyundai Elantra vs. Nissan Sentra: Value

These two sedans are both affordable, but the Elantra represents one of the best values in the entire automotive market. Its starting MSRPs are roughly $1,000 lower across many comparable trim levels starting at the base model. The 2019 Elantra Sport, with its more powerful engine, has an MSRP nearly $700 below that of the equivalent 2019 Nissan Sentra Turbo.

And it’s impossible to talk Hyundai value without mentioning its best-in-the-business warranty, a 10-year, 100,000 mile basic coverage that crushes the 3-year, 36,000 mile warranty offered by Nissan.
