2014 Honda Civic vs. 2014 Hyundai Elantra GT Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Civic as you will with the Hyundai Elantra GT, 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 Honda Civic is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Elantra GT. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Civic and the Hyundai Elantra GT have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda Civic is a little narrower than the Hyundai Elantra GT, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Honda Civic, which is slightly longer than the Hyundai Elantra GT.

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

Handling
The Honda Civic has about the same turning radius as the Hyundai Elantra GT, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Honda Civic has less horsepower than the Hyundai Elantra GT, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Civic and the Hyundai Elantra GT. The Honda Civic has significantly less cargo room than the Hyundai Elantra GT, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Civic is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Elantra GT.
