2021 Hyundai Elantra vs Mazda 3 Sedan 1.5 - A Hyundai over a Mazda?

The new Hyundai Elantra offers an alternative option if you’re shopping for a C-segment saloon. Being a CBU import from Korea, it is a bit tougher for the Elantra to compete with the CKD Honda Civic. A CBU rival of the Hyundai Elantra would be the Japan-made Mazda 3 Sedan 1.5.The Hyundai Elantra is now open for booking, but prices are yet to be announced.
