Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Ioniq EV than the BMW 430, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW 430, drivers may find the Hyundai Ioniq EV a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the BMW 430 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Ioniq EV, due to its larger tank size and better 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 BMW 430 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Hyundai Ioniq EV, 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 BMW 430 and the Hyundai Ioniq EV have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 430 is a little wider than the Hyundai Ioniq EV, 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 BMW 430, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Hyundai Ioniq EV.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW 430 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Hyundai Ioniq EV.

Handling
The BMW 430 has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Ioniq EV, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 430 has a much more powerful engine than the Hyundai Ioniq EV. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The BMW 430 has less seating than the Hyundai Ioniq EV, making the Hyundai Ioniq EV the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the BMW 430 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Ioniq EV.
