2014 Hyundai Elantra vs. 2014 Scion xD Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Hyundai Elantra than in the Scion xD, due to the Hyundai Elantra'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 Scion xD.

Convenience
The Hyundai Elantra will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Scion xD, 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 Scion xD. 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Scion xD.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Elantra is much wider than the Scion xD, 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 Scion xD.

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

Handling
The Hyundai Elantra has a smaller turning radius than the Scion xD, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Elantra has a much more powerful engine than the Scion xD. 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 Scion xD. The Hyundai Elantra has significantly less cargo room than the Scion xD, 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 Scion xD.
