More Than Meets the Eye - The 2020 Honda Civic in Clear Lake

2020 Honda Civic in Clear Lake

If you’re about to start the process of shopping around for a new sedan and don’t know where to start, then this article was written for you! Today, it’s all about the 2020 Honda Civic in Clear Lake, so instead of stressing out over researching and comparing vehicles, you can sit back and relax, knowing that the hardest part is done. So without wasting any more time, here is our comparison of the Honda Civic and Hyundai Elantra.

Better Suspension and Handling

With a fully independent front and rear suspension system, you’ll be able to follow the road at the best possible angle for a superior ride. The Civic is also equipped with front and rear stabilizer bars for added control when cornering. The Elantra only hosts a semi-independent rear suspension and doesn’t offer a rear stabilizer bar in the base model’s suspension. As icing on the cake of suspension and handling, the Civic offers drift compensation steering, which will account for tricky road conditions to help keep the vehicle straight more easily. The Elantra Sedan doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

More Functional Elements

Everything is simpler in the Civic because Honda knows that even the little things can make a big difference, like a remote vehicle starting system. Being able to start up the car and get the cabin to your preferred temperature before stepping out of the house is a dream come true when you’re rushing out the door. All Civic models (except LX/Manual) have this feature while the Elantra doesn’t offer it at all. The Civic also has a power parking brake that can be activated or released with one touch, automatic wipers that can adjust their speed when water is detected on the windshield, and automatic headlights. The Elantra doesn’t offer a remote starting system, push release parking brake, automatic wipers, or automatic headlights on all their models.
