Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Elantra offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Toyota Camry Hybrid with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Hyundai Elantra and the Toyota Camry Hybrid in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Toyota Camry Hybrid 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Elantra will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Camry Hybrid. 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 Toyota Camry Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Elantra is somewhat more powerful than the Toyota Camry Hybrid.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Elantra transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Toyota Camry Hybrid.

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 Hybrid. The Hyundai Elantra has less cargo capacity than the Toyota Camry Hybrid, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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