Sometimes a vehicle is so unique that, while it does have an official segment to which it belongs, it might better compare to a vehicle in a different class. The Hyundai Elantra GT is a compact hatchback sedan, and while the Nissan Juke is technically a subcompact crossover we think these two vehicles are quite comparable to one another. So, with that in mind, we thought we’d compare the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT vs 2018 Nissan Juke to make narrowing down your options a bit easier if you’re looking for a small vehicle that still offers plenty of space.
The table above highlights a few of the different specifications and features that are important to consider when shopping for a vehicle like these two. The first row simply shows the engine that is powering either vehicle, each of which is quite similar to the other. The Hyundai Elantra GT’s engine is slightly larger than the Nissan Juke’s, but, as the second row depicts, it’s the Juke that delivers more horsepower in the form of 36 HP.
However, the Elantra GT does have a couple advantages of its own. For starters, drivers can choose between a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission while the Juke is only available with the continuously variable transmission. That means the more sport-inclined drivers don’t have a manual option in the Juke, limiting its sportiness. And finally, the Elantra GT does offer far more cargo space despite the Juke being a crossover. The Elantra GT’s cargo area offers 24.9 cubic feet of space, 14.4 cu. ft. more than the Juke.
