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). The Hyundai Elantra is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Elantra HEV. 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 Hyundai Elantra HEV have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Elantra is about the same width as the Hyundai Elantra HEV. When looking at overall length, the Hyundai Elantra takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Elantra HEV.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Elantra 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.
