Comparison Review

Convenience
The Kia K5 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Hyundai Elantra, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Elantra will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Kia K5. 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 and the Kia K5 have similar Destination Charges.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Elantra is somewhat more powerful than the Kia K5.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Hyundai Elantra and the Kia K5.

Warranty
The Hyundai Elantra comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Kia K5.
