2016 Hyundai Elantra vs 2016 Nissan Sentra in New Bern, NC

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra Offers Several Class-Exclusive Features

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra is a compact car that is big on offering several class-exclusive features. It lights the way for its segment with HID headlights with Dynamic Bending Light that help drivers maximize road visibility at night by turning the headlights with the direction of the curve as you turn the steering wheel. While the 2016 Nissan Sentra provides available LED low-beam projector headlights, the 2017 Elantra's technology clearly outshines the Sentra's headlight options.

Another reason to choose the 2017 Hyundai Elantra is the excellent technology that allows total convenience not found in any other segment choice. The Hands-Free smart trunk opens when the Proximity Key is behind the vehicle within three feet for approximately three seconds or longer, while 2016 Nissan Sentra owners still have to use their keys (and hands) to open the trunk.

The 2017 Elantra offers a premium feature in the class-exclusive Integrated Memory System, which holds two customized settings for the driver seat and the exterior mirrors, adjusting the settings automatically when you indicate which driver is taking the wheel. The 2016 Nissan Sentra's primary driver is left to adjust settings manually each time another driver operates the vehicle.

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra Focuses on Safety

If all those class-exclusive features weren't enough to convince you it is superior to the 2016 Nissan Sentra, the list doesn't end here. The 2017 Hyundai Elantra offers the segment-exclusive available Pedestrian Detection system not found on the 2016 Sentra. When a pedestrian is detected, full stopping power is automatically applied from 5 to 43 mph.

Other available advanced safety technology include:

  • Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist
  • Smart Cruise Control
  • 7 airbags (versus 6 in the 2016 Nissan Sentra) 
  • Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist
