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

Convenience
The Toyota Yaris requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Hyundai Elantra GT, making it more convenient to drive.

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 GT will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Toyota Yaris, 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 GT and the Toyota Yaris have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Elantra GT is much wider than the Toyota Yaris, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Hyundai Elantra GT, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Toyota Yaris.

Drivetrain
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 Toyota Yaris.

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

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

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

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