Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Elantra HEV offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Toyota Camry Hybrid 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 Hybrid.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Elantra HEV as you will with the Toyota Camry Hybrid, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 Hybrid. 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 and the Toyota Camry Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

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

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

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

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Hyundai Elantra HEV and the Toyota Camry Hybrid. The Hyundai Elantra HEV has less cargo capacity than the Toyota Camry Hybrid, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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