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 HEV than the Subaru Impreza. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Hyundai Elantra HEV and the Subaru Impreza in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Elantra HEV you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Subaru Impreza, 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 HEV 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 HEV will cost more in transportation costs than the Subaru Impreza.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Elantra HEV is much wider than the Subaru Impreza, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Hyundai Elantra HEV takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru Impreza.

Handling
The Hyundai Elantra HEV has about the same turning radius as the Subaru Impreza, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Hyundai Elantra HEV has less horsepower than the Subaru Impreza, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Powertrain
The Hyundai Elantra HEV has much less torque than the Subaru Impreza, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Hyundai Elantra HEV and the Subaru Impreza.

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