Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Hyundai Elantra GT than in the Subaru Impreza, due to the Hyundai Elantra GT's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Elantra GT, drivers may find the Subaru Impreza a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

The Subaru Impreza requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Hyundai Elantra GT, making it more convenient to drive.

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 GT is somewhat more expensive than the Subaru Impreza. 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 Impreza.

The Hyundai Elantra GT is about the same width as the Subaru Impreza. The Hyundai Elantra GT is slightly shorter than the Subaru Impreza, which may make it easier to park.

Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Elantra GT does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Subaru Impreza.

The Hyundai Elantra GT has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Subaru Impreza, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Elantra GT is somewhat more powerful than the Subaru Impreza.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Hyundai Elantra GT and the Subaru Impreza. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Hyundai Elantra GT as you will in the Subaru Impreza.

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