2014 Hyundai Elantra vs. 2014 Nissan Cube Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Cube than the Hyundai Elantra, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Elantra, drivers may find the Nissan Cube a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Hyundai Elantra will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Nissan Cube, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Hyundai Elantra is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Cube. 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 and the Nissan Cube have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Elantra is much wider than the Nissan Cube, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Hyundai Elantra, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Nissan Cube.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Elantra transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Nissan Cube.

Handling
The Hyundai Elantra has a larger turning radius than the Nissan Cube, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Elantra has a much more powerful engine than the Nissan Cube. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher 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 Nissan Cube. The Hyundai Elantra has significantly less cargo room than the Nissan Cube, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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