No matter where the road takes you, it’s important that you stay safe behind the wheel. Luckily, Toyota and Hyundai understand this and have armed the Corolla and the Elantra with advanced safety systems to keep you confident on the road.

Safety Technology

Both the 2022 Corolla and the 2022 Elantra come standard with a suite of safety systems. For the Toyota Corolla, this suite is called Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0, which comes with the following technologies:

  • Automatic High Beams
  • Road Sign Assist
  • Lane Tracing Assist
  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

As for the Hyundai Elantra, it utilizes comparable safety systems as part of its Hyundai SmartSense package. For instance, it comes with Lane Keeping Assist and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, two standard features that warn you when one detects lane drifting and the other an impending frontal collision, respectively.

Cruise with Confidence

If you’re looking for even greater protection, the Corolla answers the call. Its standard Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control is an advanced cruise-control system that maintains a set following speed and distance between you and the car ahead. The similar Smart Cruise Control of the Elantra is only available with its top trim level.
