Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Elantra as you will with the Toyota Camry, 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 Toyota Camry.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Elantra is about the same width as the Toyota Camry. The Hyundai Elantra is slightly shorter than the Toyota Camry, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Hyundai Elantra has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Camry, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Powertrain
The Hyundai Elantra has much less torque than the Toyota Camry, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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