2018 Hyundai Elantra GT vs. 2018 Toyota Prius c Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Elantra GT offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Toyota Prius c. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Prius c, the Hyundai Elantra GT may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

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 Toyota Prius c, 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 Toyota Prius c. 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 and the Toyota Prius c have similar Destination Charges.

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

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Elantra GT does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Prius c.

Handling
The Hyundai Elantra GT has a significantly larger turning radius than the Toyota Prius c, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Elantra GT has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Prius c. 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 GT and the Toyota Prius c. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Hyundai Elantra GT will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota Prius c.
