Comparison Review

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

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

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). Whether you pick the Hyundai Elantra or the Hyundai Elantra HEV, it's going to cost you about the same.
