2014 Honda Civic Hybrid 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 Honda Civic Hybrid than the Hyundai Elantra. The Hyundai Elantra will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic Hybrid.

Convenience
With the Honda Civic Hybrid 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 Honda Civic Hybrid 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 Honda Civic Hybrid and the Hyundai Elantra have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda Civic Hybrid is a little narrower than the Hyundai Elantra, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Honda Civic Hybrid takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Elantra.

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

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

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

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