2014 Hyundai Elantra GT vs. 2015 Scion tC Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Elantra GT than the Scion tC. The Hyundai Elantra GT will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Scion tC.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Elantra GT as you will with the Scion tC, 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 GT will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Scion tC. 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 GT will cost more in transportation costs than the Scion tC.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Elantra GT is about the same width as the Scion tC. The Hyundai Elantra GT is slightly shorter than the Scion tC, which may make it easier to park.

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

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

Performance
The Hyundai Elantra GT has less horsepower than the Scion tC, 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 GT and the Scion tC. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Hyundai Elantra GT will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Scion tC.

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