Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Hyundai Elantra N than in the Subaru Legacy, due to the Hyundai Elantra N's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Hyundai Elantra N and the Subaru Legacy in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Subaru Legacy you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Elantra N, due to its tank size and 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 N is somewhat more expensive than the Subaru Legacy.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Elantra N is about the same width as the Subaru Legacy. The Hyundai Elantra N is slightly shorter than the Subaru Legacy, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Hyundai Elantra N has a larger turning radius than the Subaru Legacy, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Elantra N does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Subaru Legacy.

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