Comparison Review

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 WRX, 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). Based on MSRP, the Hyundai Elantra is clearly a better financial choice over the Subaru WRX. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Hyundai Elantra is much higher than that for the Subaru WRX.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Elantra is significantly less powerful than the Subaru WRX. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Hyundai Elantra and the Subaru WRX.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Elantra than that of the Subaru WRX.
