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 than the Subaru Impreza. The Subaru Impreza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Elantra.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Elantra as you will with the Subaru Impreza, 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). The Hyundai Elantra is somewhat more expensive than the Subaru Impreza. 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Subaru Impreza.

Since the Hyundai Elantra is much wider than the Subaru Impreza, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Hyundai Elantra takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru Impreza.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Elantra is somewhat more powerful than the Subaru Impreza.

Powertrain
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 Subaru Impreza.
