2017 Hyundai Elantra vs. 2016 Subaru Impreza Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Elantra offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Subaru Impreza with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Subaru Impreza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Elantra.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Elantra as you will with the Subaru Impreza, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Elantra will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Subaru Impreza. 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 Subaru Impreza.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Elantra is much wider than the Subaru Impreza, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Hyundai Elantra takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru Impreza.

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

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

Performance
The Hyundai Elantra has less horsepower than the Subaru Impreza, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Hyundai Elantra and the Subaru Impreza. The Hyundai Elantra has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Subaru Impreza.

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