The Toyota Corolla has held the title of world's bestselling car for several decades and it's in little danger of relinquishing its position in the automotive industry any time soon. Toyota has developed the Corolla into such a popular platform by staying ahead of the curve of what customers want. Some of the things the current Toyota Corolla has been praised for include being exceptionally well-equipped across the board and having one of the segment's most comfortable interiors.

Taking a look at the entry-level trim grades of the 2018 Toyota Corolla and 2018 Hyundai Elantra easily shows the former's longer list of standard features. Spitzer Toyota shoppers choosing the base Corolla L will get LED headlights and taillights as standard equipment. Additionally, the 2018 Corolla offers adaptive cruise control as well as tilting and telescoping steering across the board. Most of those features are available with the 2018 Elantra, just not on the base model. In fact, the Elantra doesn't offer LED exterior lights until the top two trims. Finally, all six trims of the 2018 Toyota Corolla are equipped with the automaker's suite of active safety systems. This system includes lane departure warning and an anti-collision warning that watches for pedestrians.

Fuel Economy Scores

Both compact sedans use four-cylinder engines with very similar scores for performance output. However, the 2018 Toyota Corolla will record better Environmental Protection Agency-estimated fuel economy scores. Most versions of the current Corolla model employ a very precisely-tuned continuously variable transmission. This will help drivers record up to 28 miles per gallon in the city and 36 miles per gallon on the highway. Buyers can improve upon these scores by choosing the LE Eco trim which has been observed recording 30 mpg in the city and up to 40 mpg on the highway. The 2018 Hyundai Elantra falls short of these marks.
