Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Elantra as you will with the Toyota Corolla, 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). Whether you pick the Hyundai Elantra or the Toyota Corolla, 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 Hyundai Elantra and the Toyota Corolla have similar Destination Charges.

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

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

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