Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Insight offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Hyundai Elantra. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda Insight, 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 Honda Insight, 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). The Honda Insight is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Elantra. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Honda Insight will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Hyundai Elantra.

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

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

Handling
The Honda Insight has a significantly larger turning radius than the Hyundai Elantra, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Honda Insight has less horsepower than the Hyundai Elantra, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Insight and the Hyundai Elantra. The Honda Insight has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Hyundai Elantra.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Insight is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Elantra.
