2014 Honda Insight vs. 2014 Hyundai Elantra Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Honda Insight than in the Hyundai Elantra, due to the Honda Insight's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Hyundai Elantra will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Insight.

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

Dimensions
Since the Honda Insight is much slimmer than the Hyundai Elantra, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Honda Insight is slightly shorter than the Hyundai Elantra, which may make it easier to park.

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

Handling
The Honda Insight 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 Honda Insight 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 Insight and the Hyundai Elantra. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Honda Insight will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Hyundai Elantra.

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