2017 Hyundai Elantra vs. 2017 Toyota Camry Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Camry than the Hyundai Elantra, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Hyundai Elantra and the Toyota Camry in the front seats.

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 Toyota Camry. 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 Toyota Camry have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Elantra is a little narrower than the Toyota Camry, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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 Toyota Camry.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Elantra is significantly less powerful than the Toyota Camry. 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 Toyota Camry. The Hyundai Elantra has less cargo capacity than the Toyota Camry, 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 Toyota Camry.
