2018 Subaru Impreza 5-door VS 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT: Design

The Hyundai Elantra GT is quite a bit smaller than the new Subaru Impreza 5-door hatchback. That means you'll enjoy greater legroom in every seat of the 2018 Subaru Impreza 5-door, giving you and all your passengers greater comfort. The Impreza hatchback also has a number of available exterior accents that you won't find on any 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT: You can equip roof rails to your Impreza for easy transport of all sorts of outdoor toys and equipment. Fog lights add a sporty touch to the front end and improve visibility in dense fog. With a windshield wiper de-icer, you'll never deal with frozen windshield wipers again - whether it's a rare Seattle snow or that more common layer of impenetrable morning ice coating your entire vehicle. You won't see any of these exciting features on the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT.

2018 Subaru Impreza 5-door VS 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT: Performance

There's no getting around it: The 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT offers you greater horsepower. But how much of a performance boost does it give you? The Impreza 5-door is only 0.4 seconds slower from zero to 60 MPH than the base Elantra GT. And in the corners, the Impreza reigns supreme thanks to its fully independent rear suspension and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. You can't get AWD on the Elantra GT, and you'll have to upgrade to the Elantra GT Sport to get an independent rear suspension. Even then, the experts at Car and Driver magazine say of the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Sport, "Despite its independent rear suspension, its corner-carving acumen falls short of true hot-hatch status." Meanwhile, the magazine says of the 2018 Subaru Impreza 5-door, its "rally-car heritage shines through in the chassis, which is willing and happy to be tussled about on back roads."

2018 Subaru Impreza 5-door VS 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT: Safety

With limited active safety features, the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT lacks the ability to protect you on the road in the same way that the new Subaru Impreza hatchback does. Only blind spot detection and lane change assist are available on the Hyundai Elantra GT. With Subaru EyeSight®, the 2018 Subaru Impreza 5-door has those systems, plus automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, and adaptive cruise control. It's also available with steering responsive headlights - which you won't find even on the pricey 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Sport.
