Comparison Review

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

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 Plug-In 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid.

Dimensions
The Audi A5 is a little wider than the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In 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 Plug-In Hybrid.

Handling
The Audi A5 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In 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 Plug-In Hybrid. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Powertrain
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 Plug-In Hybrid.

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 Plug-In Hybrid.
