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 Toyota Corolla. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Corolla, the Hyundai Elantra may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

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 Corolla, 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). Whether you pick the Hyundai Elantra or the Toyota Corolla, it's going to cost you about the same.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Elantra is much wider than the Toyota Corolla, 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 Toyota Corolla.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Elantra has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Corolla. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

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 Toyota Corolla.

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

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