If you live in Baltimore or frequently need to drive into the city, having a nimble vehicle makes sense. You just never know when you’ll have to quickly take evasive measures with a bad driver or inattentive pedestrian.

This is why, if you’re looking for a new car, a compact sedan might be the best choice. Plus, they are great for fitting into tight parking spots. If you’re thinking about a sedan, take a look at how the Hyundai Elantra compares to the Nissan Sentra in terms of tech and safety.


Cars are getting more advanced all the time, and the Hyundai Elantra is certainly no exception. It comes with a user-friendly and intuitive infotainment system with an eight-inch display, though a 10.3-inch touchscreen is available. Other standard features include:

  • Voice recognition
  • USB port
  • Apple CarPlay™
  • Android Auto™
  • Bluetooth®
  • Wi-Fi hotspot
  • Six-speaker stereo

If you’re looking for a Wi-Fi hotspot in the base Nissan Sentra, you won’t find it, as it requires an upgrade. You will also need to go with a higher trim if you want the stereo to have more than four speakers.


Some car brands are synonymous with safety, and Hyundai is one of them. If you’ll need to drive around young children (or perhaps one of your children is now driving), you will be happy to know that the Hyundai Elantra comes with a bevy of systems:

  • Lane keep assist
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Rearview camera
  • Lane departure warning
  • Pedestrian detection
  • Forward collision warning

Some of the same safety features can be found in the Nissan Sentra, but lane departure warning and lane keep assist are not among them.
