Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Audi A5 than in the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid, due to the Audi A5's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A5.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Audi A5, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). The Audi A5 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi A5 and the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi A5 is a little wider than the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Audi A5, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Audi A5 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid.

Handling
The Audi A5 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A5 has a much more powerful engine than the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid. 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 Audi A5 and the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Audi A5 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid.
