Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Cruze offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Hyundai Elantra with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Cruze, drivers may find the Hyundai Elantra a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Hyundai Elantra requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Chevrolet Cruze, 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). Whether you pick the Chevrolet Cruze or the Hyundai Elantra, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Cruze carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Hyundai Elantra.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Cruze is about the same width as the Hyundai Elantra. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Cruze takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Elantra.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Cruze transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Hyundai Elantra.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Cruze is somewhat more powerful than the Hyundai Elantra.

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Cruze is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Elantra.
