2016 Nissan Sentra vs 2016 Hyundai Elantra

When you're looking for a new car to purchase, you have a lot of options. It's a big decision because this is an investment that will probably be a part of your life for years. So, you should make sure that any car you choose to buy is the right one. If you think a compact sedan might be the best choice to fit your needs and lifestyle, that's a great option. These vehicles have high-fuel economy ratings and are usually sporty, versatile, and complete with a lot of great features. Two compact sedans that are leaders among this class are the Nissan Sentra and Hyundai Elantra. So, between the two, which is best? Let's look at a comparison of the 2016 Nissan Sentra vs 2016 Hyundai Elantra and find out.

Both the Nissan Sentra and Hyundai Sonata excel when it comes to performance, efficiency, style, and features, so we understand that it can be tough to choose between them. One thing that quite possibly stands out more than anything else is the design of these vehicles. For 2016, the new Nissan Sentra has had a stunning redesign across the entire vehicle. With this new design, the Sentra looks better than ever before, offing similar sporty styling that can also be seen in the compact sedan's big brothers, the Maxima and Altima. This design is one area where the 2016 Sentra is superior to the 2016 Elantra. The Hyundai Elantra hasn't actually had a redesign since 2011, so even though it's a good looking vehicle, it's not nearly as modern or striking at the new Sentra.
