Interior & Exterior Design

Each of these sedans makes a bold statement with their latest designs but in far different ways. While the new Elantra's bold creases and lines and web-like grille lead its aggressive, reimagined exterior, they may deter drivers who are after something more elegant. Luckily, the new Nissan Sentra can oblige. It may not be as aggressive as the Elantra's, but the 2021 Sentra's exterior design is far from tame, boasting a streamlined frame, sleek steel wheels, and a striking front end.

On the inside, the 2021 Sentra sets itself apart from the competition and in more ways than one. While the new Hyundai Elantra takes the market with a redesigned interior, the Sentra's trumps it both in refinement, comfort, and cargo capacity. In addition to class-competitive storage space and ample room for five passengers, the Sentra provides optimal comfort with Nissan's lauded Zero Gravity seats and a clean dash design for easy access to all your essential controls. And if you're looking for a pinch of luxury in the Sentra's already elegant interior, you can treat yourself to leather upholstery.


The 2021 Nissan Sentra and Hyundai Elantra bear several similarities in terms of specs, but their respective performances tell a different story. Both sedans pack nearly 150 horsepower, offer continuously variable transmissions, and come in standard front-wheel drive. That said, the new Elantra remains plagued by sluggish acceleration, while the Nissan Sentra offers a smooth and composed ride. Between its fuel efficiency, excellent stopping power, and weighted steering, this new Nissan sedan is ideal for tackling daily errands and weekend excursions.

2021 Nissan Sentra vs. the 2021 Hyundai Elantra Reviews

There's a lot to like about these two long-running sedans, but the Sentra gets the nod in more than a few areas. Reviews may have applauded Hyundai's boldness in redesigning the new Elantra, but the Sentra's more mature and classier exterior has gotten its fair share of praise as well. This new Nissan has also been applauded for its refined interior, comfortable Zero Gravity seats, and thriftiness on fuel. As for the 2021 Elantra, this Hyundai model's driving dynamics are nothing to sneeze at, but its lazy acceleration and limited standard infotainment features have been sore spots with reviewers and diehards alike.
