Comparison Review

Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Accord than the Hyundai Elantra HEV. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda Accord, drivers may find the Hyundai Elantra HEV a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

With the Hyundai Elantra HEV you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Honda Accord, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Honda Accord is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Elantra HEV.

The Honda Accord is a little wider than the Hyundai Elantra HEV, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Honda Accord, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Hyundai Elantra HEV.

When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Accord has a much more powerful engine than the Hyundai Elantra HEV. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Honda Accord does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Hyundai Elantra HEV.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Accord and the Hyundai Elantra HEV.
