2015 Hyundai Elantra vs. 2015 Chrysler 200 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chrysler 200 than the Hyundai Elantra, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Elantra will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chrysler 200.

Convenience
With the Chrysler 200 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Elantra, due to its tank size and 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). Based on MSRP, the Hyundai Elantra is clearly a better financial choice over the Chrysler 200. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Hyundai Elantra carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chrysler 200.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Elantra is much slimmer than the Chrysler 200, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Hyundai Elantra, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chrysler 200.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Hyundai Elantra doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Chrysler 200.

Handling
The Hyundai Elantra has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Chrysler 200, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Elantra is significantly less powerful than the Chrysler 200. 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 Hyundai Elantra and the Chrysler 200. The Hyundai Elantra has less cargo capacity than the Chrysler 200, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Elantra than that of the Chrysler 200.
