The Elantra has been treated to an upgraded look and added standard safety features for 2019. The Corolla comes in an all-new hatchback this year, but the sedan model carries over from 2018 in preparation for a 2020 redesign.

When it comes to cargo space, both the sedan and hatchback versions of the Elantra come out ahead of their Corolla counterparts.
