2016 Ford Focus vs. 2017 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 Ford Focus, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Ford Focus and the Hyundai Elantra in the front seats.

Convenience
The Hyundai Elantra requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Ford Focus, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Focus 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 Ford Focus will cost more in transportation costs than the Hyundai Elantra.

Dimensions
The Ford Focus is a little wider than the Hyundai Elantra, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Ford Focus takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Elantra.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Ford Focus doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Elantra.

Handling
The Ford Focus 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 Ford Focus is somewhat more powerful than the Hyundai Elantra.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Focus and the Hyundai Elantra. The Ford Focus 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 Ford Focus is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Elantra.
