2017 Ford Fiesta
2017 Hyundai Elantra
If you think the 2017 Ford Fiesta and the 2017 Hyundai Elantra offer Peotone and Bradley drivers the same equipment for their daily commute, we have a surprise for you. While the Ford has a base price thousands less than the Hyundai, it offers drivers access to better safety equipment, is more affordable to operate, and has many options the more expensive Elantra doesn't offer. Look at our quick comparison of these two popular compact cars, and see if you don't agree than a Ford Fiesta from Terry's Ford is a better value overall.
While both the Fiesta and the Elantra offer drivers safety equipment like advanced airbags, four-wheel ABS, traction control, and electronic stability control, the Fiesta's engineering makes it safer in a collision. In recent NHTSA safety testing, the Fiesta scored five out of five stars in the 35 mph crash tests. The Hyundai scored just four out of five stars. In Motor Trend testing, the Fiesta came to a full stop from 60 mph in just 116 feet. The Elantra took 130 feet to perform the same task.
According to the Car Book, the Fiesta is also less expensive to repair than the Hyundai, with basic parts costing significantly less. And, with more Ford automotive service centers in the U.S., the Fiesta is easier to maintain as well.
When drivers are building their ideal Ford Fiesta, they can choose between a hatchback or sedan version for just the right amount of usability. The Elantra is available only as a sedan, limiting driver's options when it comes to carrying cargo. The Fiesta also offers upscale options like remote engine start, an available exterior pin entry system, and one-touch power windows. The Hyundai Elantra doesn't offer any of these features. And, while the Ford gives drivers standard hands-free Bluetooth connectivity for convenient calling and music streaming, Hyundai drivers must pay an additional fee for access to these options.
The 2017 Ford Fiesta clearly offers Peotone and Bradley drivers more than the 2017 Hyundai Elantra. You can see firsthand the difference Ford quality makes when you schedule a test-drive.
