Compare 2018 Hyundai Elantra vs Elantra Sport


With the Elantra Sport, it’s all about power. This sleek sedan is equipped with a turbo-four that provides 201 horsepower, combined with a six-speed manual transmission. With sport-tuned suspension and steering that provides selectable drive modes, you’ll have plenty of control. Sport drivers can also upgrade to the seven-speed SHIFTRONIC high-performance dual-clutch transmission. With the Sport model, you’ll get an EPA-estimated 24 city / 32 highway miles per gallon.

While the 2018 Hyundai Elantra SE provides good acceleration and a smooth, comfortable ride, it’s better suited for those who prefer to save at the pump. It offers the choice between a standard 147-hp four-cylinder engine, paired with a six-speed manual or optional seven-speed automatic transmission. The SE model offers class-leading EPA numbers of 28 city / 37 highway mpg for the base engine, bested only by the Elantra Eco model.

Exterior Styling

The 2018 Elantra Sport gets a few sharp styling upgrades compared with the SE trim. You’ll enjoy unique 18-inch alloy wheels with performance tires, a power sunroof, sport grille and fascia, high-performance HID headlights, LED daytime running lights and taillights, and turn signal indicators integrated with the side rearview mirrors.

Interior Features

The Elantra SE is equipped with a six-speaker audio system with Bluetooth and USB connectivity. With the Elantra Sport, you’ll enjoy many of the comforts available on higher trims of the standard Elantra, including leather upholstery, heated front seats, proximity key with push-button start and hands-free liftgate, and two additional USB ports. It also boasts some unique amenities like front sport seats, a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel, alloy pedals, and illuminated vanity mirrors.

In both models, you’ll have class-leading cargo space of 14.4 cubic feet, along with standard split-folding rear seats for versatile convenience. Reviewers praise the Elantra for its comfortable, supportive seats, spacious, high-quality interior, and quiet cabin. The car can accommodate up to five passengers including LATCH connectors for two child safety seats.
