Elantra vs. Sonata: Interior Space & Features

The Hyundai Elantra is more compact and agile on the streets of Arnold than the Sonata. But that means less cargo space, and for families with a lot of baggage, that may be a deterrent to choosing the Elantra. The Sonata has more cargo space and room in the cabin for passengers. Although both have a classic sedan appearance, the Elantra feels a bit sportier inside, making it attractive for some St. Louis drivers. See below for dimensions:

  • 2020 Hyundai Elantra: The 110.2 cubic feet of interior volume adds real comfort and legroom to the Elantra’s six-speaker audio system, 5-inch touchscreen system, split-folding rear seat, Bluetooth®-capable phone system, premium cloth seating, and a rearview camera.
  • 2020 Hyundai Sonata: The Sonata, on the other hand, offers 120.4 cubic feet of total interior volume alongside all of the above features and more including a 7-inch color touchscreen display, a blind-spot detection system, metal grain interior accents, and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.
