It's hard to beat the class-leading warranty that Hyundai offers with the Elantra. A new Toyota Corolla comes with a three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty while the Elantra comes with a five-year/60,000-mile basic warranty and a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. A longer warranty means a bigger peace of mind for drivers around the Dallas and Frisco region.  Offering this warranty doesn't even make the Elantra more expensive than the Corolla, the Elantra maintains an affordable point while offering even more benefits.

  • The Hyundai Elantra SE trim with a six-speed manual transmission will cost Plano drivers less than the Nissan Sentra S trim level with a similar transmission.
  • The Elantra SEL offers a seven-inch touchscreen display, while the Sentra S Midnight Style offers only a five-inch display.
  • Safety is important to Frisco drivers, which is why the Elantra will stand out because it offers Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-traffic Alert, while the Sentra will make you spring for a higher trim level and package to get this feature.
  • Speaking of safety, get Lane Change Assist and Rearview camera with dynamic guidelines on the SEL trim, but on the Sentra you'll need to pay for the SL trim level, which is nearly $5,000 more.
  • The Elantra Limited trim offers Richardson customers the top tier driving experience with leather seats, heated front driver's seat with lumbar support, and HID headlights with Dynamic Bending Light, while the Sentra SL trim level offers all but Dynamic Bending headlights for a lot more money.
  • Our Allen customers will appreciate the Elantra's less expensive automatic transmission option, costing you about $2,000 less for the six-speed automatic transmission than the Sentra's CVT transmission.

When it comes to performance and efficiency, the Hyundai Elantra offers 36 mpg highway while the Nissan Sentra gives Dallas drivers 35 mpg highway. You also will enjoy the 147 horsepower of the Elantra, while the Sentra offers up to 130 horsepower. Choose between a 2.0-liter engine, 1.4-liter Turbocharged engine with up to 40 mpg highway, and a 1.6-liter Turbocharged engine with 201 horsepower on the Sport trim. The Sentra offers a few options for engines, but none of them are as powerful or efficient as the Elantra's engines.
