2014 Dodge Avenger vs. 2015 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 Dodge Avenger than the Hyundai Elantra. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Dodge Avenger, drivers may find the Hyundai Elantra a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Dodge Avenger you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Elantra, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 Dodge Avenger is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Elantra. 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 Dodge Avenger is much higher than that for the Hyundai Elantra.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Avenger 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 Dodge Avenger, 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 Dodge Avenger transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Hyundai Elantra.

Handling
The Dodge Avenger has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Elantra, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Avenger 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 Dodge Avenger and the Hyundai Elantra. The Dodge Avenger has less cargo capacity than the Hyundai Elantra, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Avenger is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Elantra.
