2014 FIAT 500 vs. 2014 Hyundai Elantra Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Elantra than the FIAT 500, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Elantra will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the FIAT 500.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the FIAT 500 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). When looking only at MSRP, the FIAT 500 will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 FIAT 500 and the Hyundai Elantra have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the FIAT 500 is much slimmer than the Hyundai Elantra, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the FIAT 500, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Hyundai Elantra.

Drivetrain
The FIAT 500 has much less torque than the Hyundai Elantra, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The FIAT 500 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Hyundai Elantra, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the FIAT 500 is significantly less powerful than the Hyundai Elantra. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The FIAT 500 has less seating than the Hyundai Elantra, making the Hyundai Elantra the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the FIAT 500 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Hyundai Elantra.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the FIAT 500 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Elantra.
