Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Elantra HEV offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Toyota Camry with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Hyundai Elantra HEV will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Camry.

Convenience
The Hyundai Elantra HEV will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota Camry, 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). Based on MSRP, the Hyundai Elantra HEV is clearly a better financial choice over the Toyota Camry.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Elantra HEV is about the same width as the Toyota Camry. The Hyundai Elantra HEV is slightly shorter than the Toyota Camry, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Hyundai Elantra HEV has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Camry, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Elantra HEV is significantly less powerful than the Toyota Camry. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

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