If you can gain an extra 5mm on the cut out on your worktop, it gives you a wide choice of hob.
At the sizes you've posted, there are very few hobs that will fit.
Check them out, see what you find and get back to me if you need more help.
Whilst there are strict regulations on gas appliances the same doesn't apply to electric hobs.
Your existing hob would have had a clearance figure in the original installation instructions.
The figures you've quoted above would mean that a gas hob installed would contravene the regulations (and possibly void your house insurance).
You will likely find you still need the extra 5 mm on the space the hob fits into.
The overall size on top of the worktop would be 580mm wide and 51mm deep.
This should compare favorable to the existing hob.
Check out the same links as before but select electric appliances.
You're very welcome.
Good luck with the new appliance.
Hope this helped
