2014 Ford Focus vs. 2014 Hyundai Elantra Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Focus offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Hyundai Elantra. The Hyundai Elantra will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Focus.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Focus 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 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 and the Hyundai Elantra have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Focus is much wider than the Hyundai Elantra, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Ford Focus transmits a bit more power to the wheels than 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.
