2016 Chrysler 200 vs. 2017 Hyundai Elantra Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chrysler 200 than the Hyundai Elantra. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chrysler 200 and the Hyundai Elantra in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chrysler 200 as you will with the Hyundai Elantra, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). The Chrysler 200 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Hyundai Elantra, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Chrysler 200 is much higher than that for the Hyundai Elantra.

Dimensions
Since the Chrysler 200 is much wider than the Hyundai Elantra, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chrysler 200, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Hyundai Elantra.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chrysler 200 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Hyundai Elantra.

Handling
The Chrysler 200 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Hyundai Elantra, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chrysler 200 has a much more powerful engine than the Hyundai Elantra. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chrysler 200 and the Hyundai Elantra. The Chrysler 200 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Hyundai Elantra.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chrysler 200 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Elantra.
