Performance Specs & Fuel Economy

The 2019 Toyota Corolla and 2019 Hyundai Elantra both are both capable of getting up to 40 mpg highway, though the Elantra is only able to do so if you upgrade to a more expensive engine. The horsepower differences between these sedans are negligible and difficult to notice when touring Los Angeles highways — but only the 2019 Corolla boasts efficiency and reliability in one cheap package.

The Corolla performance also gives this compact car over the 2019 Nissan Sentra.
