A good value in the compact sedan vehicle class, the 2018 Hyundai Elantra comes feature-packed and is priced to sell. The uplevel trims rival all competitors in terms of standard and optional features, and buyers also get to choose from a number of powertrains. Available as either a sedan or hatchback, the Ford Focus nevertheless comes up a bit short where powertrain choices, standard interior amenities, and passenger comfort are concerned. The 2018 Hyundai Elantra remains a solid pick in this vehicle segment.

Engine Choices


The 2018 Hyundai Elantra can be purchased with one of several engines. These are:

  • • A 2.0L Four-cylinder engine rated at 147 horsepower
  • • A turbocharged 1.4L engine that produces 128 horsepower
  • • A turbocharged 1.6L engine rated at 201 horsepower

The base engine is the only choice on the SE, SEL, and the Value Edition trims. The very fuel-efficient 1.4L engine is standard on the Eco trim, and the larger, more powerful turbocharged engine sits under the hood of the Sport version. Six-speed manual transmission is standard on the base trim, and automatic is standard on the other versions. The 2018 Ford Focus base trim comes with a more powerful engine than what is offered on the Elantra SE, but it's not as fuel-efficient, and the tiny three-cylinder engine available on the Focus SE sedan is quite underwhelming in its ability to get the car up and moving.

Interior Features


Standard features on the 2018 Hyundai Elantra base SE trim include:

  • • A color display screen
  • • Split folding rear seatbacks
  • • A height-adjustable driver's seat
  • • Steering wheel-mounted audio controls
  • • Cruise control
  • • Bluetooth phone connectivity

However, for just a few dollars more, the SEL adds on a 7-inch screen display, dual-zone automatic climate control, audio streaming, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and satellite radio. Buyers get all of the necessary safety systems as well including blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and a rearview camera. The 2018 Ford Focus base trim does boast a rearview camera, but the sound system is sub par. The uplevel SE is much more expensive, and many will find that the price doesn't match the small amount of upgraded equipment. All that's added is a six-speaker sound system, cruise control, and a trip computer.

Passenger Comfort


The biggest selling point of the 2018 Hyundai Elantra is its nicely designed interior that focuses on passenger comfort. The model outclasses the Ford Focus in the areas of:

  • • Ease of entry and exit
  • • Roominess
  • • Materials quality

The cabin is spacious and airy, and there's plenty of room for two adults in the rear seating area. Entry and exit for rear passengers is no problem thanks to the wide rear doors. The materials quality is above the average, and the buttons and other controls are perfectly placed. The 2018 Ford Focus suffers from a lack of rear-seat legroom. When the front seats are adjusted backward, there's no room for taller individuals in the rear of the Focus.


Inspect the 2018 Hyundai Elantra firsthand today at Pohanka Hyundai of Fredericksburg, and see how it outclasses the affordable but rather sparsely equipped Ford Focus with a test drive!
