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

Convenience
With the Hyundai Elantra you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Toyota Yaris Sedan, due to its larger tank size and better 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). The Hyundai Elantra will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Toyota Yaris Sedan, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 Yaris Sedan have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
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 Yaris Sedan.

Handling
