The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
6.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Hyundai Elantra adds a versatile hatchback to the fold and makes a more compelling case as a compact contender in a value-packed segment. Perfectly average in every way, the Toyota Corolla is thoroughly competent, but not at all interesting.
