Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Elantra HEV than the Nissan Sentra. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Hyundai Elantra HEV and the Nissan Sentra in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Elantra HEV you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Nissan Sentra, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.
