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 GT than the Subaru BRZ. The Hyundai Elantra GT will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Subaru BRZ.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Elantra GT as you will with the Subaru BRZ, 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 GT is clearly a better financial choice over the Subaru BRZ. 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 GT will cost more in transportation costs than the Subaru BRZ.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Elantra GT is a little wider than the Subaru BRZ, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Hyundai Elantra GT, which is slightly longer than the Subaru BRZ.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Elantra GT transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Subaru BRZ.

Utility
The Hyundai Elantra GT offers greater seating capacity than the Subaru BRZ, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Hyundai Elantra GT will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Subaru BRZ.

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