2015 Hyundai Elantra vs. 2015 Chevrolet Cruze

If you want your next new car to be fun and functional while also having more than a little style, the 2015 Hyundai Elantra is a great choice. Find out how it compares to the 2015 Chevrolet Cruze, and then plan on checking it out in person here at Auto Max Hyundai Norman, just a short drive from Moore!

Performance

The introductory engine in the 2015 Hyundai Elantra is a 1.8L four-cylinder that makes 145 hp and 130 lb-ft of torque. Compare that with the introductory engine in the 2015 Chevy Cruze, which is also a 1.8L four-cylinder but only delivers 138 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque. Fuel efficiency is better in the Elantra, too, with EPA-estimated ratings of 28 mpg city and 38 mpg highway. The Cruze only reaches 22 mpg city and 35 mpg highway, according to the EPA.

Safety

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety puts cars through a crash test called the small-overlap frontal-offset test, which measures their durability in one of the most common and consequential types of crashes. The 2015 Hyundai Elantra received the second highest rating of “Acceptable” while the 2015 Chevy Chevrolet received the second worst rating of “Marginal” in this test.

Features

The 2015 Hyundai Elantra comes in half as many trim levels as the 2015 Chevy Cruze, meaning that each build is packed with more of the features you’re looking for. For instance, the entry-level SE trim of the Elantra comes equipped with heated mirrors, satellite radio, and even cruise control. Those are features you can only find on the Cruze by paying for a more expensive car.

Warranty

The 2015 Hyundai Elantra comes backed by a 60-month/60,000-mile basic warranty and a 120-month/100,000 miles powertrain warranty. The warranties for the 2015 Chevy Cruze run out after 36 months/36,000 miles and 60 months/100,000 miles, respectively. Why settle for coverage that ends right when you really need it?
