2016 Chevrolet Spark vs. 2016 Hyundai Elantra GT Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Elantra GT than the Chevrolet Spark, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Spark, drivers may find the Hyundai Elantra GT a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Hyundai Elantra GT requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Chevrolet Spark, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Chevrolet Spark is clearly a better financial choice over the Hyundai Elantra GT. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Spark will cost more in transportation costs than the Hyundai Elantra GT.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Spark is much slimmer than the Hyundai Elantra GT, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Chevrolet Spark, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Hyundai Elantra GT.

Drivetrain
The Chevrolet Spark has much less torque than the Hyundai Elantra GT, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Spark is significantly less powerful than the Hyundai Elantra GT. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Chevrolet Spark has less seating than the Hyundai Elantra GT, making the Hyundai Elantra GT the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Chevrolet Spark has significantly less cargo room than the Hyundai Elantra GT, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Spark is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Elantra GT.
